whoa, when did i get sexy?  
one of the things about living in japan is that i feel very un-feminine most of the time. japanese women are very fashionable, skinny, and pretty. even when i look my best, i often feel as though i can't even compare. but today i compared myself with...myself. and i've definitely changed a bit since coming here. maybe it's just that i wear more makeup, or i've learned to take better photos of myself ( i take a few on days where i think i look good for my boy back home). but here's me, side by side, a little less than four months apart. same sweater and everything.

i looked at these photos one after the other totally by accident, but it made me realize that maybe i'm not as static as i often think i am (i often think i look the same as when i was 15 or something). it's a weird feeling. still, i like that i'm starting to look a little better...it shows that my efforts towards improving myself while away from home, at least on a physical level, might be starting to work. it's very encouraging. now, to work on these thighs, hehe.

I think it's the hair! You do look gorgeous though. Mwah!

hehe, thanks. xoxo. i think my hair looks better now too, but i'd taken that first picture on the day i got my hair styled because i thought it looked really good. just a difference in perspective, i guess.

Not only do you look hot, but it's very interesting...
all of the changes are very subtle, but they add up.

yeah, the more i look at it, the less seems different...but there's definately something that makes it very different when you first see them side by side.

also, thanks ^_^

you have noticeably lost weight. i don't know that you needed to, but maybe you wanted to? the hair looks longer too, which is flattering.
Mellenabsentmammoth on October 18th, 2006 03:40 pm (UTC)
it's funny because according to the scale, i weigh the same as when i arrived here. but i think it's just redistributed itself. my thighs still need some toning though, that's for sure. i do actually want to lose a little weight, i weigh more than most people imagine...at the same time, they tell me muscle weighs more than fat. so i don't know if maybe i am losing fat and gaining muscle tone elsewhere. blah blah blah.

and thanks, i like this length right now too. i'm gonna try and do more with my hair in the coming months...
