I feel pretty ^_^

I'm kind of big lately, yes. But today, I've got this shiny lovely self image. It's rare, and it felt worth blogging about.

I'm even breaking out pretty badly on my chin. None the less, I put some color correcting powder and some foundation on, and I feel pretty.

I'm just wearing worn jeans and a haynes t-shirt. New sandals.

Some eye make-up

and I feel pretty. Like a young, care-free, lovely girl.

I think maybe it's the perfume. My day is wrapped in orange blossoms.

I've found I really like perfume. Part of this cosmetic-kick I'm on.

I actually recommend it - I suspect the lovely smells might curb appetite.

Who wants to ruin the scent of orange blossom with something like reheated cow flesh?

Losing weight is like reading a book. Once you get into it, you don't really notice what's happening... Then after a while, you look at your progress - and there's a huge difference made from when you started.

It's rewarding when you realize it's day 1 and you're 1/3 through the book. Weight loss doesn't happen that quickly, but normally so many pages is a long time from the perspective of the characters.

Just a thought. I'm reading a book - and it's actually absorbed me. I might share it with you. If it's too sad, I also might not.

None the less, it's quite nice to have that thought in my head.

I've put that figurative book down so many times because I've been discouraged. I guess in a book, you can't go backwards like I have. But if I turn some pages, I can make a difference again.

Am I taking my little metaphor too far?

<3 I'm feeling a bit more motivated. I ought to give myself blog deadlines again...

My semester was a bomb

My waist is 27 inches (it used to be 25.5)

I'm eating at night again

I'm bored.
I want to run away.
I think I want...nature. Camping, hiking, and maybe several outings on boats.

I do think that the end of the semester is clearing my brain-fog a bit. Which is great.

Nothing I want to happen is going to happen in the near future, though.

I need stimulation. I'm incredibly bored with my life.

Pin-ups: photo v painting

Ran across this gem browsing images on imgur.com

One thing to note is that they actually paint these women prettier than they are.
I guess that's to be expected. Prettier, and thinner - despite the alleged "curvy" ideal.
The background is pretty interesting too. They don't even model with good props.

I've been staring at this thing for ages. So interesting. I hope you like it as much as I do
