Re: You could model professionally.....
Thank you! While there isn't a huge demand for 33 year old slightly overweight models, I'm going to send a picture in to Electra Designs once my waist cincher arrives. :)
You do look very different. I can't wait to see you in person!
One of these days soon it will happen.
Now that I'm so much closer, Kent isn't that far away, nor is Maple Valley. You'll have to come see the new house.
I SO do not miss my old face man. I feel like other people finally see what I saw the whole time. I know that sounds lame but it's true. I think I had that dismorphia thing where you think you're all shapely and hot but you're unhealthy looking and round. You were just as beautiful with the weight as without! I don't feel that I was.
I get my first post-goal haircut tonight!
I wonder what he'll do...
I always had a face shape even with weight on. That is one of the problems for bigger girls who had a pretty face at any size. I looked younger in the face because my wrinkles were fat. I have a very pointy chin (heart shaped face), and it looked more oval when it was filled out more. I didn't like my face at my very biggest, but I liked it a whole lot about 25-30lbs more than I am now. I feel sometimes that my eyes are hollow and I look a bit sharp. I'm only 7lbs overweight today though. I can see that I'd like to lose those 7lbs right off the belly and thighs, but I'd be quite happy if my face would not get any thinner.
Good luck with the haircut! I'm getting my hair cut tonight also, so I'll send out the good vibes for awesome hair all around. *hugs* Post pics tomorrow of your hair if you can.
Good god, you are so ridiculously beautiful!
It'll be interesting to see how I feel about my face after surgery and after significant weight loss. Once I'm looking at a face that I've literally never seen before... Hopefully I'll like it! :-)
Thank you! I've noticed that most people have more wrinkles once they aren't filled out with fat, so be prepared for that. I mean, overall you'll look younger, but if you look just at the face, you may look more your age.
Gorgeous as always. I dont' think your features are obnoxioulsy huge! I think they fit your face very nicely. I see your point though. I haven't seen my "thin" face in ... well over a decade. I'm scared to see how time and weight loss will ravage it. :(
I've always had a huge smile for the size of my face, but now my cheeks and chin are really OUT THERE and kind of sharp, where before they were really soft and I felt like there wasn't any sharp definition anywhere.
Be prepared for more wrinkles. Most people who are really overweight don't have as many wrinkles because they are stretched out by fat. I was shocked by that.
I've been slathering up in wrinkle cream for weeks. Not that I expect it to work, but it can't hurt either. A good surgeon can fix that later. LOL!
Oh, and I see what you mean about 'angles', but I think you're drop dead sexy both ways, so *shrug*. If only we could all be as lovely as loverly Lanette.... :)

I think you look fantastic - not freakish one bit.
I miss some things about my old body - the smoothness of my arms and, well, the rest of me was a lot smoother too. My stretch marks are very obvious, like taking off a stocking full of runs and seeing how it droops. Good times.
Hahaha! I know what you mean. It was so strange in dance class last night. I was thinking "Wow, I look skinny on the surface, but I hope I don't take out my dance partner with my batwings." I'm still not ready for THAT much mirror time. I find I feel better if I just enjoy the dance and try to use the mirror less. Not that I hate what I look like, but I don't want to spend my fun time just all obsessing about my body dismorphia and all of my flaws.
Haha, you look so cute what with your freckles and all. Your features don't look freakishly large, but I can see what you mean about not having as much face. Maybe some lighter makeup would de-emphasize that?
I have switched to much lighter face makeup. I think I look even more wrinkled/deflated and pale/tired with less makeup.
I meant the make-up around your features. Don't get me wrong, you look fabulous darling. And I don't think you have anything to worry about, but if you think your features look "freakishly large" maybe lighter shades of eye-liner and lipstick would make your face look less like "face" and "features". I don't think it looks that way now, I think you looks like a beautiful young woman.
Except for when you look like an ugly old hag.
*shrugs* The makeup free look just isn't my style. When I see people without makeup I think they should put some on and they would look more attractive. I know that not everyone feels that way, but I do.
Oh, I know you'd never be comfortable in public without makeup and I wasn't suggesting anything like "make-up free" for you. And, yeah, everyone would look better with some make-up, but so woule everyone look better with some plastic surgery. It's just a matter of how much what you look like matters to you. And, of course, people always have differing ideas of beauty.
I don't think you can really compare makeup with cosmetic surgery since makeup isn't a health risk and can just be washed off, but I get your point.
I don't think makeup does anything besides make you look different, although it can make you feel better also if you like the way you look in it. For me, I feel more colorful, plus, I love glitter.
So true. Cosmetic surgery is the extreme for people being concerned about their looks. I'd say if you're THAT concerned, maybe a paper bag would be good until they can find the right surgeon?
I can't think that make-up is bad for you, but I do remember how young looking all those little old professing ladies looked and part of me wonders if part of that is because they never wore makeup? Of course, they didn't smoke or drink and had a generally healthy lifestyle. AND many of them were at least plump, some more than a little, and as you've previously stated, fat DOES fill in wrinkles.
I only remember how plain they looked.
Heh. Yeah, the bun brigade. hehehe
