that guilt and self-body-shaming is part of everyday sexism, one of the many symptoms I'd say ;_;
Great self-portrait, and it doesn't even look as if you were weighing too much (although I know it doesn't help when people say that).

I typed like this really long reply then I was like okee that's going to be tldr:p long story short, I don't get influenced that much by what other people think, rather then that I have an unreal set of expectations:)

aw, I don't mind reading long replies :)
Well, IMHO those expectations stem from what we see on a daily basis, in movies, ads, shops, magazines etc.
I've once seen a TED talk about the self-checking most women do all the time...It was something like in 20 minutes, they unconsciously check themselves 5 times (does my shirt stick out? does my belly look fat in these jeans? did my bag pull down my shirt too far? did I smear my make up? etc).

Same thing! First I lost a lot of weight, but I didn't realize I gained so much! I was so big! So now i'm super careful and always feel guilty when I eat. it's a stressful  ^_^' I have a slow metabolism so Im trying to drink green tea and exercise. (not being unhealthy about it tho). I don't think I can do day one but i'm going to try the challenge. ^_^

yeah I really should :D
but ... school and annoying parents that want you to do shit in the garden every f*cking day kinda keep me busy already (especially when I'm drawing, when I'm just slacking no one wants me to help anywhere.. haha)

so uhm, I think I'll start with this tomorrow .. or even today

wow! comparing the photo ref'd and mirror ref'd pics is so interesting. you see yourself so very differently then how I see you, I hardly even recognized you. ( plz dont take that the wrong way =S ) the kind of fast smudgy style looks interesting too!
