Look! I'm a black beauty

In an effort to gain back some confidence- like I had pre-babies- I have been on this trek to try and lose weight. I won't bore with details, but I have lost about 15 lbs- give or take- I'm a yo-yo. Anyway, when I start noticing my face thinning, I play on a website I found via some people on Myspace. It's too fun, you must try it.

Today, my face seemed a little less chubby than it has, so I snapped some shots of myself with my camera and uploaded them. I then let the computer do its "magic".

Let me interject, I am caucasion- sooo white- genetically- rythmically- you name it. When I was very thin and in high school, however, I was often asked by my black friends, if I was black. I loved them! They were so honest. I told them I was white- sometimes they believed me, sometimes not.

I have quite a bit of American Indian in me- otherwise, I'm all mutt. I suppose we could have African -American in our gene pool somewhere, but according to a geneology expert that my mom saw for health reasons- we don't. I usually credited the confussion with my addiction to tanning beds (it was the 80's and not many knew better).

I have not been asked that question in a long time. I had some extra weight for about 13 years now- hmmm a pattern? I dunno? Anyhoo, My skinnier face today registered these results. Yep, most of them are black. They're gorgeous black women! I really don't feel I remotely resemble them at all- but hey, I'll take it!

I would do this as well except I am afraid that I be told I most closely resemble Kermit the Frog or something.
