Eat. Eat wholesome healthy meals 3 times a day.
The other day my room mate said something amazing to me, she said I helped her improve her body image issues in regards to happy eating. In other words, not living up to somebody else’s expectation of your body.
Wow. That’s incredible. Especially when I didn’t think I had done anything. Especially when I look back on my high school self and see how horribly I treated my body.
I always thought I was a third party looking in on bulimia and anorexia and extreme diets. I thought “how could anyone be so stupid?!” and I didn’t realize I was right in the middle of the problem. I am by no means a skinny girl, during high-school my BMI was “obese” and my idea of “diet” was no breakfast, an apple for lunch, and half a portion for dinner.
I didn’t lose a single pound. In fact, I gained weight because of starvation mode. I was 5”2, 162lbs, and starving. Sometimes I would go through periods of extreme fitness to try and slim down, and sometimes it would work. But it wasn’t long until my hunger kicked in and a month later I was right back where I started weight wise.
Then I went off to University, and I realized this is what my body is supposed to look like. I’m not an awkward gawky blob shaped teenager anymore, I’m a woman with hips and boobs and tummy. And the more I ate, the more people became attracted to me, and the healthier my body looked. it wasn’t until I started eating that I lost 10lbs.
That isn’t to say I over ate, or ate junk food. I made healthy delicious choices for myself, and when I skipped a meal it wasn’t because I felt fat, it was because I wasn’t hungry.
I’m 21 now, and only 10lbs lighter than the 162lbs from high school. This is my body and I can’t change that unless I’m willing to accept constant fitness and dieting. But you know what? There are much more important and incredible things I can be doing with my time.
So guess what body? You’re an old boot but I love you.
Can we talk about this?
this man is so ridiculously good looking.
When I told my mother I saw benedict cumberbatch at TIFF this year, she told me I should have ripped my shirt open and shoved my tits in his face. yes. wisdom. yes.
A short film about the power struggle between two sisters and their entanglement with psychosis.
One of my best friends directed this film, and she’s almost done. I was on set assistant directing/gripping, and I can confidently say it’s going to be stunning. Check out her indiegogo, and see the teaser she uploaded! (support female directors!)
Denise : a Supinfocom graduation movie, coming in 2014
Denise is the story of an obese young woman, going on a hiking trip to Easter Island. Despite her obvious problem, she decides to walk through the island, and enjoy its beautiful landscapes and mysterious statues. Denise is a journey towards self acceptance and achievement.
Hey guys ! I realized recently that I kept telling you that I had a lot of work on my graduation project, but I never talked about it here on tumblr ! So here we are, Denise… I wrote the first script on my own almost 2 years ago, as well as the first concepts. Then, I had the chance to work with the best classmates I could ever wish for, so we’re now 6 working on Denise, co-directing it and trying to make the movie as beautiful and moving as possible !
So yeah, the original idea was by yours truly, and because of it, I’m the lead director, but I’m also in charge of all the visual developement and concepts annnd.. lead lighting artist. Yup. total dictatorship going on here !
This movie will be done entirely in cg, with Autodesk Maya, but we’re trying to stick with the 2D look of the concepts I did ! And let me tell you it’s definitely a challenge >.< !
I AM SO FREAKING STOKED FOR THIS. YOU ARE AMAZING.
