Lil Miss Happy: Project Perfect +

I read Flaws and All's post regarding body image recently, and decided to take part in Project Perfect. It involves looking at your image in a positive way.

I think it's a great idea because I always put myself down about my looks - I constantly scrutinise every aspect of my body or face, and constantly try to fit into this ideal image. I have to admit though, I have started being much more confident recently - maybe it's a part of growing up?

To participate, all you have to do is:

1. Post a photo that you like of yourself and say in a couple of sentences why you like it.
2. State some things that you DON'T like yourself but say why others may love to be like that.
3. State 3 things that you DO like about yourself.
 1) My favourite photo of myself:
 I like this photo of myself because I feel that I look more elegant in Indian clothes. I always feel more comfortable when I am covered up. Also, I managed to do my makeup in 10 minutes - so I was pretty proud of myself ha ha :)

Three things that I don't like about myself, but turned into positives:

1) My hair. It's never looks so sleek and styled as other people. On the other hand, a lot of people have told me that they would love to have my hair as it's so thick and long.

2) My stomach. I have a typical 'apple' body shape, which means that my weight ends up in my stomach. This means - no bikinis (unless I workout pretty hard). Conversely, my arms and legs are slimmer - so at least there's a positive!

3) My cheeks. I have massive cheeks in comparison to my face. They make me look chubby when I smile - which is why I hardly smile in photos. On the other hand, I've been told I have a lovely smile and that my cheeks make me look younger. I do smile a lot in real life though he he.

Three things I like about myself:

1) My figure. Barring my stomach, I really do like my figure. I managed to lose nearly 2 stone, and I did it without giving up my favourite foods. Growing up, I was bullied about my weight, but I'm so glad I managed to do something about it. I take pride in eating healthily and working out - and it's made me a happier and stronger person.

2) My skin colour. I like that it's slightly golden - which means I don't have to tan ;)

3) My legs. I am lucky that my legs have always been quite slim (even when I was overweight!).

I really hope you all do this post :)
