I like having a little place where I can write and talk about things that make me happy.
This past week has been really emotionally challenging. When lots of things go badly especially over things I have zero control (where the outcome significantly affects me), I tend to crumble. It’s a domino effect: I start picking at *everything* that I’m unhappy with, and unfortunately, the first thing that comes up is my body.
When I was in high school, I would frequently visit my family overseas. When I tried to buy clothes, most stores/market vendors didn’t carry my size! If they did, I would wear an XL or a XXL. I actually didn’t start working out and eating better until after I graduated from college. My weight fluctuated in my early to mid-twenties, but it’s pretty much stabilized now aka this is what it’s going to be. I’m 5’4″, wear a US6-8, and weigh-in at approximately 145 lbs – and I also have broad shoulders. :P (PS – This is not the standard Asian physique.)
Sometimes I wonder why I’m so hard on my body. There’s honestly no good reason. When I’m not looking at advertisements or so-called “preferred” body types, I’m actually happy/satisfied with my body, even if I’m cramming bad foods in my body (and hey, honestly, no regrets).
That being said, after finding some solace in super trashy disgusting foods, it’s time to get back on schedule. :) I also need to head back to the gym after taking two weeks off after that barbell incident…
I received some goodies in the mail and was excited to wear them, even if I wasn’t feeling my best. Pretty underthings really do lift up one’s spirits. ;)
Hopeless Lingerie: Maja garters (flipped around; they’re one-sided FYI), Kristen knickers (purchased from PassionateJade; Bordelle Lady Citron Bodice Bra (can be purchased available on sale from Journelle)
Review for the Bordelle bra to come in the near future! (Quick notes – it’s a bitch to put on by yourself, but it’s a beautiful, well-made, hefty bra.) All lingerie pieces are a size Medium.
