Goodbye yesterday.

I am cracking up atm at what I found in my old picture collection.
Just thought I'd share:


This picture was taken circa 2004 when I was lugging around an extra 20 pounds and had no neck. And apparently my forearms never cease to stay the same. My weight distribution is awkward.

I'm not going to lie and say that I don't think I look better now. I honestly put in a lot of effort just to get to this weight--all thanks to this asshole I used to admire. I'd like to confront him now as well as say thanks for motivating me to show him wrong.  Boys, be careful of what you say to girls.

A tip I can give others on dieting is to not stop eating completely or even skip meals because that gives a negative effect. You should exercise, eat healthy, drink a lot of water, yada yada. You've all heard it before and yes, it does work. It just took me 7 years. -_-;; 

And I want to thank all of you that commented on my last entry. I really appreciate everyone's support. :)

Have a great weekend xoxo



Thanks for the follow!

oh wow i can't believe that's you! congratulations on all your success! definitely great to see stories where you don't have to starve yourself to be thin.
I think you look wonderful. I agree totally with you!

Don't skip meals, eat healthy, excersice etc..
Aaaand... Don't get too thin!

Haha, I really like your animated "I love my bowler hat" ;D

Any update on the lifeless/bored person who stole your pictures?

What others say shouldn't matter, the most important is that YOU are comfortable with YOURSELF.

I lost 40 lbs last year and while I'm very proud of that, I would still like to lose an extra 20 by the beginning of the summer. But it's hard. Lots of people are telling me I look fine this way, but I'm doing it for ME, not for them.
MOON said…
Wow, such a change! I don't think you look ugly before, but you look a lot better and more confident nao :)

I don't think you looked fat before, as you said your arms were always so thin, but the 20 lbs changed your face. You look lovely and I'm glad you are happy with the results^^

Its too bad that a jerk was the impetuous but you reap all the benefits so XP to him.
Bibi said…
You look so pretty!! Congrats on losing weight ^^
You know, I don't believe in those crash diets. They make people starve themselves and are so unhealthy. It might've taken you 7 years, but at least now you have a healthy lifestyle, which you might not have had if you went on a diet that promised you to lose 10 kg in two months...

Oh congrats on getting this far! : D I dropped 25lbs from May last year till today. I'm both proud but also a bit scared.. Most of my weightloss has been illness related, so that's kinda scary.. But majority of it is just changing lifestyle, switching up the diet and moving around more. I honestly think that a healthy lifestyle is 80% diet and 20% exercise.

Winnie said…
Oh my, I can't even believe that's you! Your arms really do look the same. You definitely look healthier now but wow, it definitely took time to lose weight but it was worth it, especially since you did it in such a healthy and normal way. Well done!
Bea said…
OMG, I can't believe it's you!!
I guess, I also need self control.
I don't skip meals but after my work, especially at night, I'm always hungry so I tend to eat more. Thank you for this entry. I should strive more.

GIT IT GURL GIT IT, it does take a while, but i think u look great, your skin looks clearer you look healthier..not just like "oh thin" theres a plethora of thin gurls who look "unhealthy" as long as it not a obsession but a lifestyle change, its ok by me :D

Ellie Lee said…
Monica! Wow! I can't believe it's you! 7 years! That's a hell lot of determination!!! You are definitely an inspiration to a lot of people!

Anyway; you looked so cute in the pictures from two posts ago; it's horrid that the girl on tumblr would post your picture and photoshop her face on it?! Ughhh.
Haein said…
That doesn't even look like you! I'm pretty sure we've all been there though (the ugly pictures of our pasts still haunting us). Either way, you're gorgeous. Regardless of weight or "awkward distribution" and such!
un petit lapin said…
Wowow, you've worked so hard, you look amazing! Good to know you still have a healthy appetite though :P

How is the Linea Storia wig compared to the Priscilla ones? I wore my 'waffle' wig today. I just wish the hair net didn't squeeze my head so much! Maybe I have a big head?

Thought about you when I heard the earthquake/tsunami news from my friend today! Hope you and everyone you know is safe. <3
Natasha said…
You look so different, and this is exactly what I'm trying to do at the moment. And I know I've spoken to you on Facebook etc. but stay hopeful re. the earthquake in Japan, I'll be thinking of you! xxx

Wow you look amazing! I think it's really difficult to diet/lose weight and confront our worst fears, and we all know weight is an issue for a lot of girls so congrats on facing it head on!

p.s I hope you get to confront that guy too!
