As if being fat isn't bad enough...

My damn skin has been revolting against me for the past week.  Seriously, teenage zits?  NOT FUCKING FAIR.
Everytime I start feeling like I am in front of the 8 ball and my confidence soars a bit, I get knocked right back down with a huge honker on my forehead, or worse, in the tip of my nose.

I really think zits are God's great equalizer.  But do they have to be so PRESENT???
When I was fatter, I never wanted to go out, I was totally embarassed and scared shitless that I would run into someone I used to know when I was a 'hot mess', not just a 'mess' as I had become. 

Now that I don't mind going out, I get zits, and again want to retreat to my couch.  Freaking awesome.
Why am I bitching about this, you ask?  Because this is my reason for not posting pics.

Many of you want to see an updated pic of me now, and have been *rather* vocal in this. ;-)  So this is my excuse not to for a week or so.  
You have all probably seen my pic from when I had lost about 20 pounds from back in October I think, now I have lost 61.5 total, and I promise a pic soon.  I understand that for those of you brave enough to post pics and put it all out there, that it only makes sense for those bloggers you follow to suck it up and reciprocate.
So moral of this story, I'm working on it...

I've got photoshop and took out the very large zit on my SIL's chin from the pictures I took at their wedding. Photoshop has a free 30 day trial. I'm betting that there are a lot of free programs that could do the same thing too :)

Oh my goodness! I love your blog! It is awesome. I also have the skin of teenager again and it is not cool. I'm not sure where the acne attacks are coming from. I thought my skin would improve as I was losing weight! Thanks for checking out my blog as well!

I have my moments where I break out to, I'm sure it will pass and then you can post a pic for us all to see.

Zits suck. Seriously, what kind of sick, cosmic joke is "adult acne"?

Thank goodness for corticosteroid creme and good concealer! :D

Zits are oftened caused by the very products that we use to "beautify" ourselves. Especially if you are drinking over a hundred oz of water a day, it almost HAS to be something topical. Lots of products will have parabens and pthalate in them that can mess up hormones and cause zits. If you can manage day or two with no prouduct on your face you might get some relief.

Another idea - don't take a photo of your face. I don't show my face around here. Too many scary people already! Maybe people would be satisfied with a body shot. . .

I can't stand adult acne. I have it from time to time too - particularly during stressful times. And let's not get started on the stuff on my back. Ick.

Take a picture when you're ready - we'll still be here regardless! <3

Anne H said...

I had a zit once - a few years ago....
One on my back right now..

Julie said...

Only when you're ready. We'll wait. It's just exciting for us to see what a negative 60 looks like. We'll be here. Take your time. Oh by the way, Mike uses Abreva to dry up his zits. Just a thought if you'd like.
Take care and God Bless!!

I always do a funny pose to try and hide them.. hee hee... but I always admit why I did the funny pose! Your silly, we all get them. :) cheer up, you'll be free in no time.

Sue said...

Good for you, but you can always take the pic from the neck down but we would miss that pretty face of yours ;)
