Is it weird to take pictures of your own butt? Asking for a friend.

If you've never taken a picture of your butt then please read the following:

WARNING!!! - NEVER EVER EVER EVER TAKE A PICTURE OF YOUR OWN BUTT. Don't allow anyone else to take a picture of your butt either. Butt pictures may be hazardous to everything you know.

Um so.. It's not like I can see my own butt. Either I'm not flexible or well it's hard to get a good look at my own butt. Even if I try to look in a mirror I'm all twisted trying to get a picture so one butt cheek always looks bigger than another butt cheek. It's just complicated when you want to see what your own butt looks like and the amount of chair a butt takes up or the way pants fit don't always give an accurate description of a butt. Plus when you take a picture of your butt you can see other parts too...

I have been doing the transform 90 program for 4 weeks now and I've completed 3 weeks worth of workouts because I procrastinate and hit the snooze button ALOT. But I have noticed that things are getting easier and my pants still fit but they fit better. I no longer have to double check that my underwear isn't peaking out the back of my jeans when I sit down in front of people at a peewee soccer game because I don't want to be that person with their underwear sticking out when their shirt rides up like the guy in the red hanes undies who either only owns red hanes underwear or well.. you know...

My before pics only have a front and side view. There was no rear view. I decided this may be an error when judging progress. The other error was taking a picture from the rear. I now know what my butt, back, and thighs look like from behind. I'm not really impressed with any of them. Cellulite is definitely a thing. A huge thing. A huge OMG when did that happen thing. LIKE WTF!?!?!?! ARE YOU KIDDING ME!! thing. I feel like I've been talking to someone and picturing them as this kinda attractive smart looking got their stuff together person only to meet them and realize they only own red underwear and their shirt is 3 inches too short and their are absolutely nothing like what I pictured. My thighs have been deceiving me for years. I think. I have no clue when this happened because I've never tried to take a picture of my butt. Wait I lied I did take a picture of my butt once because I liked the bling on the pockets but even that was some weird body twist thing I did 20 times to get the smallest looking butt possible and my thighs were hidden by jeans.

OMG... I have a thigh mullet!!! It's all business in the front (smooth and muscular but also very sturdy) and in the back.. HOLY HOT MESS.

Today's plans.. to stop skimping on the workouts, have even more dedication to eat right, and somehow give everyone the warning to never try to photograph your own butt because the results may be hazardous to your own health and I have to somehow say this without seeming like a weirdo.

I wonder how often I will try to take butt pics now so I can obsess with the lack of progress that goes with getting rid of cellulite.

You could trtaking a selfie with your back to a mirror and your hand slightly to the right or left - provided the camera can still see the mirror, of course. Or find a mirror facing a mirror - getting complicated now.

You are SO funny. Good luck, you can do this. Yes, it's hard, but it's worth it. Think like Churchill, never give up.

I had girlfriends take a picture of my butt years ago, when I was leaned over a booth in a restaurant. I was running marathons at the time and super skinny though. More recently, I took one to see what my jeans looked like because they felt baggy and yep - they are baggy and look awful. Not to discourage you but I work out pretty much every day, am 2lbs under goal weight and I STILL have cellulite on the back of my thighs *sigh* It just won't leave. Kind of like that one annoying person in every meeting that asks a million stupid questions and makes the meeting last 3 times longer than it should.

Yes, I remember seeing a video taken of a group of us, as I am walking away. There was a butt shot or lack there of. My pants were baggy .... not a great look!

One, some butts hang over the chairs. Two, next time just use two mirrors; you'll have all of the horror, none of the photographic evidence.

That was fabulous. Made me feel so much better about my own less than perfect butt. If you had a blog I’d be a daily reader.

I’ve just noticed you do have blog on Wordpress but my search skills are lacking

I know what you mean by you have this idea of what 'a person' looks like but it's totally different when you meet them! Lol...there was an event we went to and videos were taken; later, at home, we were watching the video and the kids go "Oh there's Mommy" and I was searching for who I thought I looked like, hahaha- when they pointed me out, I was like whatdawhat!? Who is that, That isn't me! It was weird. You're so funny! Thanks for that warning.

Maybe butt dialing would be the solution. My husband is always doing this. Just a crazy thought. Happy and safe holiday to all

Funny thing. My butt is the one area of my body I've never had an issue with. Out of sight, out of mind or something else, I don't know. But there's always been something else instead.

I remember in March, when I was helping install flooring for a friend... kneeling on the floor, sitting on my heels... friend asks me for the cushion I'm using (which I forgot I tossed aside, to my left)... so I reached behind (pun intended) and underneath me and grabbed... let's just say it took about a week for the bruises to disappear... LOL!

You make me laugh! I won't take any butt pictures, only front and side. :) I like your plans.
