Does anyone else look different in all the mirrors in your home? And do you have an "evil" mirror?! One that's like a fun house mirror because it distorts your body so much? (And

i was going to say, i just assume that the one full length mirror in my house is, by default, the "real" me. who knows if it is, but i've never considered that it isn't.

I didn't have a full length mirror for that reason - til I found my skinny one. And I'm sure you're being hard on yourself. Like Jean said, powerful and muscular is a better way to look at them!

I forgot to comment on photos and video. I realized that I always look different than I think I do in photos because when I see myself in the mirror, I'm kind of posing for the mirror, putting on make up, fixing my hair, etc. Then when I have my picture taken, I always smile. Then I think, "That's not what I look like!" But it is what I look like, I'm just smiling!!! LOL!! I don't ever look in the mirror and smile - what a nerd I'd have to be to do that!


How about lighting? That's a whole other topic! :)
