For You Facebook: Hiding, Posing & Dieting...

Thank you Facebook. I think...
In all fairness this could be for all Social Medias.
You guys are great tools... and I do mean "tool" in all forms.

Me? I am talking directly to Facebook because I don't have the other stuff. Facebook has inspired me even more than I already was to become fit. First of all, I hardly... if ever... post pictures of myself so I like hiding behind the camera, thankyouverymuch. But if I go out, I'm always trying to pose because, well... have you seen the pics people tag you in? They don't exactly take the same consideration in looking for the best poses and flattering shots that you do for yourself. You know what I'm talking about, don't you? Don't lie now.

Yes, I could delete my account but then I wouldn't know which pictures of me are floating around would I? So now I'm using my love/hate relationship with FB to work out even harder so that I don't cringe when I see myself on other people's pages. Or in my "tag" album... where anyone can see them, eek! I'm not doing this only because I lack self-confidence but also to save others from going blind. I hope the effort is appreciated, that's all I'm saying.

And it's not that there is really anything wrong with the pictures, not much anyway, but aren't we our biggest critics? Photos that Jeff has posted of me have me hanging my head in shame while he loves the looks, so no they aren't bad. This post is basically about two things: I'm hard on myself and I have FB to thank for my (depending on how it goes) anorexic or sexy future. So since I can't control what pics go up of me I can control the "me" they take a pic of. You have the summer and the beach as inspiration, I have FB.

I know I sound like a cry baby... but deep down, I'm sure you get it. If you don't, then clearly you don't have a frontal ass to deal with. I have issues, obviously, and yes FB has made me face a reality that I can't ignore but because this is a sensitive topic I'm putting a disclaimer: I don't have a disorder or taking this overly too serious. I know that I have the pouch because of my laziness it was home to my adorable twins but I can still want to look better can't I?

Also, I'm not stopping anyone from taking photos or posting them, I'm just saying: prepare yourself for a tinier facebooker... fingers crossed.


  1. Oooh flipping FB! I am behind you 100% people will post pictures of you doing anything remotely crazy and unflattering. I never thought to use it as inspiration to get into shape but with technology ruling the world it makes total sense. why get fit for the beach when Facebook is up and running the whole year round? lol

  2. Ha, Facebook as a fitness tool? Good idea girl. I definitely know what you mean, I sure pick and choose which pictures I upload but other people don't understand that I want to ALWAYS look like a model. I too cringe at some of my shots in fact I deny that its even me lol.

    I always tell my husband that no one on Facebook actually looks the same in real life, he thinks I'm crazy so I'm just going to show him this post now :)

  3. We are always our biggest critics but I can totally relate girl! We can do this!!!!!

  4. haha I think everyone understand Judy what you mean, minus the frontal ass lmao!

  5. just, not judy! my iPod likes to correct me and make me wrong :(

  7. GET IT GIRL! You deserve to feel better about yourself and if FB is your motivation, well, then awesome! Sometimes we need that little bit of mortification in our lives to get the ball rolling in the right direction! They say motivation comes in all shapes and sizes. :) You can do it!!!!


I heart comments, thanks for leaving one =)
