Makeup Liv Tyler style Anonymous 7655[Reply]

Who's been fat their whole life and actually managed to lose weight? I can't visualise a thinner version of myself because I've never been thin.

Anonymous 7631

I was overweight my whole life and finally started to workout and eat healthy. Lost about 25kg over a longer period and it feels pretty good man, I'm proud. There are a few drawbacks though, the usual stuff like excess skin or several deficiencies or that I had to buy a bunch of new clothes.

Anonymous 7637

Yeah! I lost 50 lbs over the course of 2 years after being fat since adolescence. I was an average kid though.
Despite doing it over a period of time I still have some loose skin (on my arms and inner thighs) and unfortunately developed some sag on my face. Not much, but I have nasolabial folds under certain lighting now.

I think visualizing yourself depends on where you carry your fat and just how fat you are. If you're 100 lbs + overweight or carry a lot on your face it's hard to determine. For myself, I was "smallfat" and honestly just look like a more defined and smaller version of my fat self. But I know some people look super different.

Anonymous 7638

Yeah I need to lose around that much. I'm sure you look better than you think anon. How'd you guys achieve this? I'm okay with working out.. counting calories and dieting is my issue.. >>7631

Anonymous 7639

ive been fat my whole life, my parents worked so my grandma watched me and you know how overindulgent they are telling you to eat even if you dont really want to. then i became a shut-in who didnt do anything but eat and sleep, last year i was my heaviest at 116kg but i also started leaving the house last year and at the end of the year i was 93kg (i counted calories but still ate shit) this year i got to 86kg but im back at 92kg atm, i take it one step at a time i dont think about the long term goal, i think lets just get to 114kg and when i get to 114kg i say thats just water weight 112kg is actually 114kg repeat ad infinitum. this thought proccess helped me last year, also i had been trying to count calories before by using tracking apps but those stressed me out and i gained more weight and binged more instead, so i only keep track in my head, i also round up for example something says 250kcal i just think its 300. its probably easier to cook but i eat mostly frozen meals or packet noodles. last year i ate 1200~1400 (but probably less from rounding up) and since i didnt eat sustaining meals + eating a lot less + drinking a ton of water i got a lot of headaches. something that also helps is to not tell ANYONE and i mean ANYONE that youre trying to lose weight, i read years ago how when you tell people youre trying to achieve something you already feel part of the way there and you do less/dont accomplish at all (or something along those lines). it might not be for everyone but i definitely have that mentality, i think i gained weight this year not only because i dont actually eat healthy + stress but also because my family knows now.

i gotta say even though im less fat i still feel really ugly and self conscious, but im trying my best.

im sorry if none of this is helpful and only works for my shitty brain, i wish you the best of luck anon

ayrt and honestly…it's just self-control for the first few months. You really have to reprogram yourself so you can make the lifestyle shift. My steps, over a long period and one at a time:
>cut out processed sugar
>slowly eliminate liquid calories (from juice to energy drinks to ANYTHING you put in your coffee)
>identify "danger" binge foods that you can eat endlessly, and eliminate them
>eat filling healthy food (high protein and stuff like oatmeal)
>begin officially calorie and nutrition tracking
Personal choices:
>start intermittent fasting
>cut out dairy
It's still not easy though. I have moments where I must stop and consciously resist even now, although I can eat treats in moderation finally. It helps that dairy breaks me out so I can barely eat any bad things kek. Now I binge on peanuts…

Hope this helps!! I believe in you, anon.


personal color analysis? Anonymous 4938[Reply]

has any of you had a personal color analysis done? was it worth it? how much did it cost you?

I'm sort of intrigued but not sure I want to drop ~$200 on it…

It's all bullshit. I'm supposed to look good in grey and pale blue because I'm a light summer but actually it just brings out the redness in my face. and I'm supposed to look bad in black

No, I look good in every color.

>I'm supposed to look good in grey and pale blue because I'm a light summer but actually it just brings out the redness in my face.
I think you might be fall, like darker warmth to subdue your complexion, not summer. You couldn't be summer at all if you have problems with redness in your skin becoming apparent when you wear pale blue, someone has told you wrong.

>and I'm supposed to look bad in black

You can't bring up black to knock color theory.
Every living thing on the planet looks good in black, it's an absence of light, your brain isn't getting as much information and so whatever it's perceiving is more stylized and simpler, hence 'better' and more striking.
It's why the "little black dress" safe choice exists at all.

Anonymous 7616

How good does neutral work in a person with cool undertones? I want break out from the always-dark-blue but dont know where to start. Also, how to dress olive without looking like your overachieving career focused 37yo childfree cousin?

Anonymous 7623

Maybe use olive for accessories, like bags or scarves? Or style your clothes to look more modern and casual. Also, you could try a cool grey instead of dark blue for variation.


androgyne/tomboy fashion Anonymous 6802[Reply]

Would anyone be interested in an androgynous fashion thread? Some other (fem)anons and myself tried making a general for this on /fa/ but male anons shitposted it to death before it finally fell off the catalog, and someone in the vent thread suggested I try it here.

I have a bunch of hair and wardrobe inspo to dump but need to know if other people are interested first, heh.

Not as androgynous, more femme, but closer along my personal style, and enough tomboy to make straight men REEEE irl at me. I miss my curls. I wish I never started straightening my hair.

Why do you have an eating disorder? What is the motivation behind it? What goes through your head when the topic is food? How can you disregard hunger? What do you think of others when they eat a lot or express love for food? What do you think of fat people? What is your opinion on diets? Exercising?
And most of all,
Do you want to get better? Why does (at least with the cases i see) treatment rarely ever works?

Anonymous 7618

I dont know if this counts as an eating disorder, but I do alot of sports and have to force feed myself to get enough calories. I hate eating food, the thought of it makes me sick, but I do it anyway for the sake of athletic performance

Anonymous 7619

>Why do you have an eating disorder?
I don't think I have an eating disorder but I do forget to eat sometimes and find the act labor intensive. I also don't like pooping so more food just makes for more effort later. I do however like eating new varieties of food. I find eating novel things (especially sweet ones) to be an incredibly enjoyable experience, but I don't have the energy, time, want or knowledge to reinvent my weekly groceries to keep trying new things every single week.
>What is the motivation behind it?
I don't think I have a motivation as again, I'm not doing it intentionally I just forget sometimes and find eating unpleasurable most of the time.
>What goes through your head when the topic is food?
Is it new? Hope this tastes good. Have I had it before? Time to keep my body functioning.
>How can you disregard hunger?
I don't understand the question, but ignoring biological processes is incredibly easy to do. Disregarded your need to eat is only slightly different from forcing yourself to breathe slower and not immediately shitting yourself when you feel your bowels.
>What do you think of others when they eat a lot or express love for food?
Good for them if it's not obesity causing, and if it is obese causing, why do I care if they shave a few decades off their life?
>What do you think of fat people?
Chubby can be really cute. Normal fat people are nice to okay. Obese ones are disgusting.
>What is your opinion on diets?
Fad diets are just that, fads, and will disappear. I would say going by the original definition of a diet, anyone should add exercise into their routine with the diet. Else they'll just be low energy all the time and feel like shit in a different way indefinitely.

It's the opposite for me. I work out regularly and have to force myself to stop eating. I do eat healthy, but I'm such a sweettooth and can eat a lot of food before I really start to feel full regardless being high or not. Serving sizes are a joke.

Anonymous 7621

When I was bullimic I would eat because it brought me comfort. I was super depressed and eating was an escape for me. I would binge and then purge, or I would buy a ton of cheap junk food and chew it up and then spit it out behind a grocery store. It was absolutely disgusting.
I still do the chew and spit thing once in a while, but I rarely force myself to purge anymore.


Breast Implants/General Plastic Surgery Anonymous 3999[Reply]

Does anyone here have breast implants? How did they affect your life? Do they hurt? Do they even feel like your own body? Has anyone here ever considered a boobjob?

Do most men consider fake breasts normal now? More and more young girls are getting them and male oriented media is dominated by women with implants. I’m pretty sure most men can’t tell the difference.

All plastic surgery discussion is welcome. Please stay reasonable and open minded, and don’t try to talk others into stuff they don’t want.

I was born with what I have and I'm learning to live with it. After starting to see results a few years trialing anti-depressents and group therapy sessions, I'm starting to think people who get cosmetic surgeries (outside of a genuine deformity) have some sort of mental illness not being treated. My compulsive hate of myself and urges to change have gone away almost entirely, other than the occasional thought that passes I'm able to observe and let go of. Obviously this is vague, but after the work I've gone through, I'm starting to see common thought patterns between the old me, and those I meet that are considering going under the knife.

I guarantee this thread I probably have the least attractive breasts, far apart, sagging, yet very small, but they don't cause me any problems (as of now). I rarely get breast pain, I don't get a large portion of underboob sweat like my friends, no swelling, rare soreness, and no back pain. I'm sure they'll perform their basic function if I had a baby as well. Many are not so lucky, and I should be thankful. I've had guys make fun of my breasts, one tell me he wouldn't be with me unless I got silicone implants. I'm alone now, much happier.

I can't tell anyone to not do it, but at least be safe. Very little research has ever been done on implants, the FDA passed them without really doing long extensive testing on patients. Recent studies have been published that textured implants cause cancer. Read about "Breast Implant Illness." While not an officially recognized diagnosis, women who are predisposed to other auto-immune disorders have had a number of symptoms that caused inflammation until their implants were removed. Almost all women, supportive of surgery or not, with implants, agree that they are restrictive of breathing. Cons considered, it's not worth it. Health is more important. Breast implants, to me, are no different than those who risk blindness to change their eye color. My skin on my chest, and my eyesight are not replaceable.

Anonymous 7562

Good on you anon, that is really inspiring.

Anonymous 7591

I have implants. Got them because I was worried about how broad my shoulders were in comparison to my A-Cup breasts. They really are only for if you want to impress other people. No plastic surgery will "fix you" and make you okay with yourself, however, if you're honest with yourself, that you're doing it for other people. They're alright. They look great but it's a 100% true they feel different and are obviously different when groped. Only slightly though as long as you didn't go full retard size wise.

All in all if you want it go for it, but it won't solve your problem. Shits expensive and will feel different. You get used to it though.

"Quality men".
Most of guys dripping for those Insta girls are pieces of shit.
It's all about money.
If you want a man for money, save yourself 5 grand and get big tits.
Date empty scum bags.
Be an empty scumbag yourself.
Loving real men and women, that's what keeps you away from scum like this. And even then, most "real" people are also scums.
I'm happy to have found my GF 2 years ago, we are the 1% of the 1%.
We hate living in the same world as most of those scumbags.

Anonymous 7611

Hate when some huge girls whine about their size. I wish I was huge so I could live my breasts to compensate all of their hate.

That being said, I have mixed feelings about fake breasts. They look beautiful when the girl is wearing clothes and that's how most of people would see me, so I guess it's ok. The problem is when you're naked, I guess I would feel insecure if some guy asked me "why did you get implants" or something like this.

Mostly agree with >>7505 Some of the looks I've seen under the "soft girl" tags on instagram are honestly ugly, but pastels and more girly looks have been my aesthetic long before this trend started. Got me more out of my comfort zone when it comes to showing skin as well.

Was there any bleeding the first time you had sex? Have you ever used tampons/masturbated/had some form of penetration before that? Does age have to do with it (i.e. hymen wearing away over time)?

Anonymous 7318

I was in my early twenties my first time. It hurt a bit but I wouldn't call it painful. It felt like I expected it to, I guess. But I was pretty comfortable at the time. I had never used tampons or really inserted anything substantial into myself before. I don't recall bleeding afterwards.

Anonymous 7319

I didn't bleed at all (I was 20). I used tampons before I started having sex, but I could never fit a dildo up there (still can't unless I recently had sex either).
I do believe that the hymen does wear away over time, but I think it was more due to my tampon use than anything else

Anonymous 7453

2 or 3 drops of blood afyerwards and that was it.
I almost thought that we didn't do something right because we really didn't understand how himen works. Still thought it will 'break' at some point.I was 14 he was 16 and we've been together for about a year, lost virginity to each other.
It makes me laugh now about how young we were.

Anonymous 7540

I was coming off my period when I lost mine (I'm a really light flow anyway) so if I did I wasn't sure to the extent. I bled the second time too when I was fully off my period but that was a lot rougher than the first time. I think it can take a few goes sometimes to fully break it because you'll be more nervous your first time than your second.

Anonymous 7586

I've only had sex once and it was really painful. I didn't bleed the night it happened but I did bleed a little bit in the days after.

I did masturbate and never experienced bleeding that way. I'd also worn tampons, but they're about the same size/smaller than what I would use to penetrate myself.

I started wearing skirts from the ages of like 18 - 24 then just stopped when I started wearing skinny jeans. now I'm getting older I'm tired of tight as fuck and uncomfortable jeans and am probably going to go back to skirts. I picked up a really cute one and am looking forward to wearing it! I want to get some chelsea boots to team it up with.

what kind of shoes do miners wear with floaty just above the knee skirts?

Anonymous 7231

i have a weird body shape: im a little tall (5' 9") with slightly broad shoulders a smallish waist and a flat butt and biggish thighs. skinny jeans look terrible on me (i feel like it makes my thighs look like sausages).

i used to hate my frame, but them i started wearing dresses and they drape really nicely. skirts, particularly high-waist ones also really look nice.

i only started figuring this out recently so im still pretty excited

Anonymous 7566

Love them, much more comfy than jeans tbh
>does any other country use it for genuine racism?
All of Latin America.
Also, I heard Spanish, Italians and French people using it to insult African street venders when I went to Yurop for the summer.
I laughed so hard when this little French lady went off on one of the niggers who grabbed her and tried to put some shitty little bracelet on her.

i never wore skirts until very recently and honestly, as a woman with large hips/thighs, theyre like heaven on earth.

How do you carry pads/tampons to the restroom at work? I try to wear clothes with pockets (unfortunately hard to find when it comes to business casual attire) to carry them in my pockets. If not, I use a makeup bag like pic related, but I wonder if I should be more discreet about it. Because I don’t wear makeup, it gets really obvious in my small office what’s in the bag when I carry it the same time every month. What do you all do?

When I worked in an office, I was constantly asked for tampons or pads or even just panty liners. When I switched to a menstrual cup, I kept a handful of tampons in my purse for that reason lol.

Anonymous 7564

I have a huge ass bag, so i usually just throw my pads in there and bring it with me wherever. When i cant bring my bag though I make sure i put on a bigger pad so it doesnt overflow, otherwise i just hide it somewhere on my clothes or just grab it on my hands anyway.
