I read this along with the rest of the post, and felt understood and comforted.

On a brighter note, my girlfriend wanted to test out her new camera before doing a photo shoot for some paying clients, and I quickly volunteered my son J Per her idea, she thought a mini shoot of him and I would be nice.
Though these are a couple months old, and I’ve lost more weight since then, here are a couple she provided to me via Facebook.
(Side note: Have you read So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed… it’s outrageously awesome.
As soon as I saw these pictures I could see that my gut was ALMOST hanging out below my shirt, and I can see weird arm fat action on the picture of us up in the barn, but, I immediately went to the comfort of that article!!! J)
