Weight loss and a love of beauty
Wednesday, February 17, 2010
I'm an artist and my goal as an artist is to bring beauty to the world. I have a keen eye for the human figure. Or at least I like to think I do. So it's always so hard for me to look at myself in the mirror.
I'm 210 pounds. Granted, I'm 5'8, and my ideal weight is about 160, so it sits on me better than it would on a girl shorter than me. But it's still too much. I want to be thin and wispy and delicate and lovely.
I did a piece of art today, and you can see it at my Deviant Art gallery: littlesapphire.deviantar
. I love drawing girls with beautiful curves and small waists. I know this shouldn't be about what I look like, but it's so hard to not want to be beautiful.
So I'm going to try sticking with it more. I've got a couple more days of just writing my normal diet into my journal to see what my normal consumption is, but then I'm eager to get started slashing calorie intake!
