I AM PROUD OF MY SIZE: REAL LIFE/REAL BODY


God it feels good to get out of my house.

I've been under the weather and cooped up with stir-crazy kitties for a few days and it was starting to take a toll on my psyche. It is also having residual effects on my perspective, seeing as I've felt and still feel so ugly.  Whatever that is, I feel like it. I could give you a list of reasons why, but if I do, Rachele will is likely to delete my link-up. Which would be understandable.. but the tables turn as you consider this:

Its really nice to feel ugly and know that it has nothing to do with my size.

Foralways, I would determine how I felt that day when I looked at my body in the mirror. Not my face, not my hair, my body. And my perceptions were so warped that it varied week to week. I couldn't see my body for what it was so I pretty much always hated it. I still have bad days of course, but it's no longer size-centric. I know my body, I see my body, I like my body, and I appreciate my body because it does incredibly awesome things... even when my brain feels like shit.


ALSO, I included an "angle" picture.
 See Rachele? I did it! I even got to flash my neighbors a few times, which is an added bonus. Scandalous.

How do you help yourself feel more attractive on down days?

  3. Um, those shoes are hot. I love red shoes, I keep buying them, but I don't have a pair like that.

    Stay sexy, chica.

  4. i agree with everyone else, that dress is super on you!
    On days I feel ugly, I always try to do a very basic but lovely makeup. Super moisturized skin, a little powder, blush, black winged liner, heavy mascara and a red lip of some sorts. Not to mention giving my hair some extra body. It works every time! Also I like to paint my nails a fun color.
    You are beautiful!

  6. On days I feel ugly I find that doing something active and doing something nice for myself are sure ways to fix my mood. Even if it's just a walk around the neighbourhood and a home pedicure with a movie I love in the background. Well, those and a good long stare in the mirror until I stop seeing myself and start seeing a face, unattached to my persona. I don't necessarily try to evaluate if I think I'm pretty or not, but just to distance myself from my body until I SEE it and not just dwell on it.
