"Stop comparing yourself to everyone" this is some excellent advice I once received…
As someone who has lacked confidence for most of their life,I soon found myself comparing my appearance to others, and judging people quite harshly as a result of this.
"She’s so skinny" "that skirt is to short it looks really slutty on her" "Wow why is she wearing so much make up?" "That girls needs to eat a sandwich" "she used to look so pretty and natural"
These sort of comments used to always slip out when I was younger, and really they were just a reflection of my own self hate. I was trying to make myself feel better by bad mouthing people who I saw as slimmer and more conventionally attractive then myself.
It was a horrible way of thinking! Even though I still have confidence issues I manage to suppress this judgmental insecure mindset. Comparing myself to other people and setting these impossible standards for the world around me was actually even more damaging to confidence (it also made me come across as unlikable and bitchy!)
Once I’d Discarded this mindset I felt like I’d lifted a massive weight off my shoulders tbh.I just wanted to get this off my chest, I have a much more light-hearted comic planned later on in the week.
My boyfriend interrupted my silly selfie ;_;
Haha ANYWAY Sorry for the infrequent updates Ive just had pretty bad art block. Thankfully I’m finally feeling inspired again, so expect new posts very soon.
I hope you’re all well, also hello to any recent followers!!
thank you for taking the time to write me such a sweet message! :3
Hopefully you’ll continue to enjoy this blog~
The first weeks of a diet or lifestyle change are always the hardest, I found these to be some helpful ways of keeping myself motivated.
I actually read this ask while I was at the gym, slumped on a bench feeling like I wanted to go home. It inspired me to get back to work!
Well done on your success anon you should feel fantastic
Hey there! :D
Well for starters find slightly healthier alternatives to the junk food you eat! for example:
You get the picture :) Finding these substitutes when you’re starting out will make your lifestyle change less jarring and slowly get you off the sugars and additives in junk food.
Also I personally would cut back on lucozade ASAP that’ll instantly help you lose weight! There is so much sugar in that stuff so you might experience some withdrawal symptoms like mild headaches or drowsiness. (Though to be honest I doubt you’ll even get these!)
Anyway I’ve rambled on enough haha, thanks for the ask, good luck with everything
Why thank you! I’m happy you find them helpful :)
Man I know the feeling. I find the best way to stop snacking is to have lots of small light meals through out the day.
As for exercise…if you’re not motivated maybe it’s time to find a new way of working out that you’d enjoy more? Or you can just take the stairs more often and walk to work or school to make up for it, at least until you feel motivated again!
