Throwback Thursday

Me, in a friend's wedding in 1984.  It cracks me up that we all had sort of the same mullety hairstyle - gotta love an early 80's perm.

Young women never truly appreciate their own beauty... I actually thought I was fat and dreaded standing in front of everyone.  I guess if I could teach girls anything, it would be to appreciate every single stage of their beauty.

  1. I agree with your assessment 100% - what is that saying? "I wish I was as thin as when I thought I was fat"? Yep.

    BTW, I will always and forever love a guy with feathered hair.

  2. Yes, it's so true. I have been working on a photo project at home, and I saw a picture of myself at 139 pounds, right after my second child was born. I'd love to be that thin again, but I thought I was fat...so fat, I went on the Stillman diet and lost more than 20 pounds almost overnight. After that, I got really fat! Felt deprived and couldn't stop eating. Oh...what we inflict on ourselves in the name of searching for an unattainable perfection!

  4. Are you the second from the left Helen?? Some of the 80's bridesmaid dresses I wore were hideous - and when I look back to them now I wonder how the bride every stopped in her tracks and said "yes, that hot pink colored dress with giant puffy shoulders will be perfect for my bridesmaids!" Gah.

  7. Yep perm look here too in the 80's :) Back when I was 16 I thought I was too heavy too and I lost a little bit of that weight. After that I maintained that weight and was happy with how I looked till I got to 30 because that's when I started to gain little by little with a huge gain after my dad died. And till today, that weight is still here sigh
