RUN! It's a Beached Whale!

I should be extremely embarrassed for showing these chubby pictures:




Lets face it I am NOT worthy of this pattern! Actually if I was 6 sizes smaller, size 8, I may be able to pull this sucker off... If you think it looks good in the blurry photos then the camera is actually doing justice for me for ONCE! I look terrible in this and I am afraid it will be frogged; and a giant wrap shawl will be made in it's place... A shawl doesn't care how fat it's wearer is, it loves her for whats inside ;)
Pitty I have to go back to Yarntopia and buy the Oceane (french Girl) pattern now..
Needless to say I am depressed... This is why I don't shop for clothes anymore....Guess I had better take off those 30 lbs..... I lost 15 lbs. 2 or 3 months ago but put on 5.... atleast I didn't put all of it back on ;)

The sweater looks really nice.

Self portraits in the mirror are horrible for anyone!

I bet with a nice pair of pants or a less full skirt, it is fine.

Oh stop it! The top is great, you did a fabulous job & it looks great on you! Believe me, there are size 2 women looking at themselves & thinking how terrible THEY look.

I don't think you should frog it at all. Be proud of all your hard work! It's lovely.

Also, BTW, re: your comment at my blog about Mr. Martini, LOL...yes, Jack's one of his friends, along with Tom. :-)

I also think the top looks nice on you and I love the color with your hair. It just needs a different bottom, something like a denim skirt would be cute.

I really don't see what you see. I think the top looks good, but if you don't like it, you won't wear it, so better to frog it and knit something you like better.

I'm glad to see a picture of you (without your head cropped off). You look very much like my daughter. Same color hair and everything.

You look great in that top, I second everyone else when I say what a great color that is on you! I would probably put a different soft of top underneath, like a white or black tank to bring out the stitch pattern.

You are gorgeous, inside and out! Rock on woman! =)

Catherine, you look great. That top is just too cute on you, and the style and color are very flattering! Why-oh-why are we always our own harshest critics? Keep up the good work!

You are being WAY too hard on yourself, girl! I think the top looks very cute on you!

Well, everyone else had said what I would say. The color looks beautiful on you, and I love the shape. Please think again before frogging.

Cathrine let's look at this rationally...if you frog you are that much farther behind in your yarn diet goals! :)

Hey!!!!! Let's stop the negative talking!!! You look cute as a button. I'm at the same mental point, weight / diet-wise. I know how you feel! Use your frustration as a jumping-off point, but stay positive...you're your own best cheerleader. You go, girl!!!
