October 16th

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin. That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.

– Gwyneth Paltrow

Day 16

I was a little glutinous today, but I regret nothing. Isn’t that the best feeling? I ate donuts for the first time in a long time, and it didn’t make me feel terrible.

You know why? It could just be because summer is ending and sweater season is on its way (to cover everything up), but I’m tired of putting myself down about how I’ve gained weight in the past couple of years. So my body chemistry is changing and I have terrible eating habits; well, I can help one of those, and I have been! (For the most part.) We should all be happy in our skin, no matter what we think our faults might be. Chances are, we are the only ones who care so much about how we look.

Eating habits can change, but sometimes weight doesn’t change as significantly. So I’m not so little anymore, and I really enjoy sweets (especially donuts). I’ll take them in moderation, stop feeling like I’m supposed to look a certain way (because that’s NOT ME!), and go out and buy cute clothes that don’t remind me how little I used to be. I’ll never be that person again, and I don’t want to be. That me is stuck in the past, and I want to aim for a comfortable-as-me future.

    1. I got really down on myself, but I always try to encourage others not to be. I had to get real with myself! I really liked your article. It’s true: letting go of negativity and being around supportive people is the best way to get past insecurities !
