Oh, and for the record, I'm going today to buy one of those "air in a can" things to get the lint out of my digital camera body. It HAS to work… even though I thought blowing in it myself would work. I guess we're not all as powerful as we think; that's why they make capes.
And, I have a double chin in nearly every photo. Fuckin' A.
why are you so attention starved? why do you say your fat, then proceed to post pictures of yourself? can you be more blatant about trying to get people to say, "o stephanie, you're not fat!" I mean puh-leeze. you're not too bad looking (u should join a gym ), but this 'here i am for the world to see lifestyle'is a MAJOR turnoff to any guy worth anything. i mean, who wants to be associated with that? its just so wrong i can't even begin. your self effacing ,self promoting existence makes me, and every guy in my office here on wall st gag. nothing wrong with having a site , but c'mon already.
I'm a girl. We tend to be critical and tough on our firgures. I've been thinner. I've looked better, but I'm still willing to courageously post photos of myself with a double chin. I'm not looking for praise. That's WHY I disabled comments on my 31 post. I don't need reassurance… especially from hermit uglies hiding behind mean comments. I write it for me, and for all the women who relate to that feeling… hell, all the men too.
And, believe me, the blog is definitely not a strategy for "getting some man." I don't ever plan on attracting a guy through a web site. So, Pahhhhleeze yourself. This site is about me: how I live, what I love, it's my filter.
Writing takes courage 101. Reading criticism anchored in worth takes courage 102. Asshole comments take a delete button. So go scratch and sniff somewhere else.
"If girl to whom you are secretly attracted does not respond to kind notes, try insulting her. True, this may cause her to a. realize what a doofus you are and b. call you out as an asshole, but that's further than you've ever been before. Hang on to that thread, my friend. Alternately, belittle her need for attention by calling attention to yourself with a desperate cry for attention. She'll either love the irony, or: see b. above."
some of you are truly disturbed, i don't know why anyone feels compelled to leave negative comments…i haven't read this blog since the fall and i decided to catch-up on what i missed, and since the summer i've noticed a nastier tone
that being said…shake off the haters
we all have an inner fat girl and thats okay but she doesn't have to rule our lives
i bought a pair of 30 jeans and im not aboving saying that it left me extremely uncomfortable
Feeling insecure and fat is not so much about the size of your jeans when it comes down to it; I bet you've felt that way at your thinnest. In fact, when I saw that picture of you in those jeans I thought: damn! Cute! You looked hot, the jeans were cute, you didn’t look fat. But it's about insecurity, right? It’s about not feeling like enough, feeling like you're not good enough, not worthy enough. That inner fat girl lives on, long after she’s dead and gone. Oh, man, I get that all too well. And it *does* take guts to write with such honesty and to post pictures of your lovely self as well. It's all part of who you are and it's complicated, yes. But so is life, so are women. Carry on.
