Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

13 Mar

As in: indulge me.

Having shown you a photo of me not at my best (last post), it is only fair for the sake of balance and my vanity to show you a photo of me at my slimmest:

The indulgence must come from those of you who have seen it before.  The rest of you can marvel that I now come as a three-for-the-price-of-one package.

And take this as a warning: if you too want a figure like mine as it now is, indulge in as many Maltesers as you like.*

*Pompous syntax is free.

    You still have the same fantastic smile!

    What a terrific butt! I’d keep a print of that picture on my fridge, and salute it every day as I reach by!

      I don’t know if you’ll believe this, but I never noticed my backside in this photo until you pointed it out. I only ever look at it to remind me of a time when I could eat as much as I like and not get fat.


      • judithatwood March 15, 2012 at 12:32 #

        Fat, schmat! I have fought that emotional and physical battle with myself my entire life — ever since the 5th grade when I was the heaviest kid in the class at 125, (How horrible!!!) That’s my mom’s legacy, and I refuse to participate in it any longer. I am trying to be as fit as I can be — let the numbers take care of themselves. I sense that you can also be fit, and you’re already happy, so please cut yourself some slack. Clothes are never slack enough! 😎

          I make fun of my size but I don’t really worry about it: not since I read that after a certain age, a woman must choose between her face or her figure. Skinny = gaunt after fifty. I’ll go with plump = healthy. 🙂


          • judithatwood March 15, 2012 at 12:46 #

            That’s great — I’m going to paste that on my wall, somewhere!


  3. Pat Bean March 13, 2012 at 15:40 #

    But the smile is still the same.


  4. earlybird March 13, 2012 at 15:41 #

    Wow! Spray-on white jeans, huh? 🙂


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:45 #

      I could get into them without a fight 🙂


  5. adinparadise March 13, 2012 at 15:57 #

    Lovely happy photo. Were those jeans washed in OMO? 😉


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:47 #

      Hehe! I loved them. I wore them to death then kept them for years after I outgrew them, until I met someone even skinnier than I had been. She gave them a loving home.


  6. granny1947 March 13, 2012 at 16:33 #

    I am very impressed. 🙂


  7. roughseasinthemed March 13, 2012 at 16:53 #

    Isn’t the current challenge contrast? Is that what you are aiming at? 😀


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:49 #

      No; I’m always weeks behind. I have my own rules for prompts: use them when I’ve got nothing else to blog about 🙂

      But I like your reasoning; makes me look smart.


      • roughseasinthemed March 15, 2012 at 09:56 #

        In which case I’m surprised you use the prompts at all 😀


        • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:58 #

          They’re fun. Take me to places I wouldn’t otherwise go – like showing that horrible photo of my third arm.


  8. laurieanichols March 13, 2012 at 16:58 #

    I’ll say it for everyone, damn woman were you hot. The eyes and the smile as you know are unmistakable regardless of how short your hair is, I do like your hair short, I had a similar hair cut years ago, your hair is much nicer than my crazy mane. I was pouffy which wasn’t the look I was going for with the hair which is why it is always in a ponytail.


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:51 #

      I’ve always had it short or bobbed, until the last few years. Stopped cutting it because I couldn’t afford to go to the hairdresser. Now, I have promised to keep it long until a friend of mine gets married, so I can do something fancy with it for the wedding.


  9. vivinfrance March 13, 2012 at 17:34 #

    Seen it before, and I’m still green with envy.


  10. xtrekki March 13, 2012 at 17:37 #

    Well – the maltesers sound like a pretty fair alternative!


  11. xtrekki March 13, 2012 at 17:39 #

    Anyway – wasn’t that a pic of someone in their anorexic phase???


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:53 #

      😀 I was never anorexic – I liked my food too much. Just naturally skinny. Now I’m unnaturally unskinny.

      Never bulemic, either – I loathe vomiting.


  12. gigihawaii March 13, 2012 at 17:57 #

    How healthy and beautiful. What a shot! I, too, feel nostalgic when I look at my old photos. What happened in the meantime? Lol.


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:54 #

      I love looking at your old photos when you share them.


  13. Hattie March 13, 2012 at 18:37 #

    This reminds me that I need to round up the old photos and digitize them. You look good there, all right! Too bad I never got shots of myself in a bikini. I had a white and blue striped one that was really something. Now I wear a swimsuit of a decent cover-up nature.


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:55 #

      I never wear a costume at all…shudder 🙂


  14. Pseu March 13, 2012 at 19:48 #

    I had a very similar outfit, but my top was pink and I never had curves….(sob)


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:56 #

      I always thought of myself as boyish until my butt was recently pointed out to me 🙂


  15. Al March 13, 2012 at 20:11 #

    You sure know how to make a dirty old man’s day!


  16. Johanna Bradley March 13, 2012 at 20:18 #

    You have a wonderful ability to laugh at yourself. Wish mine was as good.


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 09:59 #

      Practice, practice, practice.

      Or is it ‘Practise, practise, practise’?

      I can never remember. Though I do know ‘separate’ contains a rat.


  17. jbmumofone March 13, 2012 at 20:26 #

    Wit wit woo! I remember when my bum was up there. *sighs*


  18. SchmidleysScribbling March 13, 2012 at 21:12 #

    Beautiful Tilly. I too was svelte at one time, but alas, my heinie never looked so good. Dianne


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 10:03 #

      Everyone is suddenly fixating on something I wasn’t aware I had. Weird.

      We were all svelte at one time. Sigh.


  19. molly March 13, 2012 at 21:56 #

    NO, your butt is obviously not too big in those white spray-ons.
    A friend of mne, whose fiance is a photographer, just completed some ‘tres tasteful’ nudie shots, she tells me … so she can one day remember how fabulous she once was … of course she is chokkers self-criticism now.
    Same lovely smile Tilly, cheers catchul8r molly


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 10:05 #

      I had a friend do the same thing. Ugh. Not for me, even if I was suddenly skinny again.


  20. kateshrewsday March 13, 2012 at 22:53 #

    Wow. Impressed.

    The smile’s the best bit, though 🙂


  21. Kate Kresse March 14, 2012 at 02:24 #

    beautiful then and now, Tilly! Same twinkle in the eye, same smile…


  22. ElizOF March 14, 2012 at 23:05 #

    Girl, you rocked that body! You know Tills, you can get fitter when you’re ready…. I know it from my experience. You are beautiful; now and then. 🙂


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 10:07 #

      Get fitter…?

      You mean…exercise…eat healthily…?

      Wash your mouth out with soap!


      • ElizOF March 16, 2012 at 02:55 #

        😆 You are ridiculously funny!


  23. Gobetween March 15, 2012 at 05:58 #

    I truly don’t care how gorgeous you are on the outside. What is important to me when I meet someone is are they trustworthy, do they have self respect and do they have good manners.
    AND I hate the fact that I look terrible in white pants!


  24. Perfecting Motherhood March 15, 2012 at 06:21 #

    Oh, I remember the skinny pants… I can’t believe they made a come-back, although you look really good in them.


    • Tilly Bud March 15, 2012 at 10:10 #

      Thanks. I LOVED them. I had them for years and they never got stained. I think they had some sort of dirt repellant. Or I never moved while I was wearing them.


  25. Hub March 15, 2012 at 13:05 #

    I remember you. I will confirm it, she was Hottttttt and she had a great ass.
    See you were wearing my clothes as well, ……. the top not the pants.


  26. evilnymphstuff March 15, 2012 at 18:52 #

    Wow you’re beautiful! 🙂

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
