curvygirl community / your image of beauty is the average of every person you've seen



curvygirls are beautiful.


I'm so proud of my new community. Everyone is so friendly and supportive and so gorgeous too! I have the community moderating page set as my homepage, and I check the community before I even check my own journal or friends page. That's dedication, eh? I try to check every comment too, to make sure that there aren't any trolls. And it's definitely the fastest-growing community I've ever made, 69 members in less than a month.

I once heard (though I haven't been able to find any data on this) that your perception of beauty is an average of every person you've ever seen -- and that makes perfect sense. I know that the more I see curvy women, the more I find myself attractive, and the more I see my own image, the more confident and loving of my own body I become. That's why I always have my desktop set to a curvy woman or a photo of myself -- not out of vanity but out of a desire to shape my own mind and control what I subconsciously believe. And that is why I NEVER buy fashion magazines (except for that one about Ryan Phillippe and Reece Witherspoon's marriage, I admit I just couldn't bring myself to merely read the article in the store, it felt too much like stealing) or watch TV or allow myself to look at images of thin models. Because I want to find myself beautiful, and to do that I feel that I need to control what I see.

And for the naturally thin girls on my flist, join naturallythin -- they're the same sort of community, but focused on girls who are naturally slender.

I shouldn't buy beauty magazines, but I just tell myself they're all airbrushed anyway and look for new nail polish colors and make-up tips. Some times the clothes are all right looking though.

I don't think I am curvy enough, Kristen. Although, I have filled out a little more since that photo-shoot we did together.
belenen ══╣teasing╠══
so join naturallythin then! ;-)

P.S. when are we going to hang out? Are you free sometime this week?
genesiskenshin ══╣╠══
I am free on Thursday, during the day. Just message me on my aim account. Or give my cell a call. Friday I am not so much, as it is Doug's last day in town until Tuesday, and I would like to spend time with him ;) I maybe free one day this weekend, let me get my schedule and we will see. Next week, I am open tuesday, wednesday night, thursday, and friday.
belenen ══╣confused╠══
I don't think I have your cell number -- email it to me? We can probably hang out tomorrow (friday) if you're still free. ;-)

I never heard that before but I have to agree. It does make perfect sense. It's funny because for the past few years I've been surrounded by little cute noses and that has become my perception of a beautiful nose. However, lately I've been looking at a lot of bumpy noses and the more I look at them the more I realize that they give that person character... and my little bumpy nose looks less like a flaw (but I'm still going through with the plastic surgery lol).
belenen ══╣shimmering╠══
Well since your opinion of your nose is changing, maybe you should hold off on surgery -- you don't want to get surgery and then realize that you really liked your nose the way it was!
chillychilly22 ══╣╠══
lol yeah, I'm definitly giving myself ample time to back out if I need to
genesiskenshin ══╣╠══
Kristen, I don't think I fit into naturally thin either. HEHEHEHEHE. I am fatter than those pictures, have more curves than that, and weigh more. :P I think we can consider me normal, finally. :D Took me long enough.
belenen ══╣caffeinated╠══
let me see some photos then!
genesiskenshin ══╣╠══
Let me get Doug to take some photos tomorrow and I will post them then for you.

tis funny how i can look at these women and think, that dress looks really pretty on her. yet, i just tried on three dresses and wanted to vomit at the sight of me. so much that im scared about a wedding im attending in September, where i will need to wear a dress. to describe how i felt ill share what i told my sister, "i look like a sailboat"

ugh. very frustrated with my body. i have no idea how my b/f can look at me and say im sexy.

*pouts*
