Lynn's Comments: When I drew this strip, I weighed 130 lbs. I was in the best physical shape I'd ever been and I still felt chubby. Like most women, I was down on myself for not being shaped like the girls on the covers of magazines! No matter how hard I exercised or how much weight I lost, I'd never be able to achieve that model shape. The "ideal" was never going to be me.

I have been going through old photographs lately looking for things to put in our latest treasury book and I came across a rare photo of yours-truly in a bathing suit. The first thing I said to myself was, "Wow! I didn't look so bad after all!" Strange how your perception of self can change over the years.

And, no --you can't see the photo!
