Yes, I Am A Girl, But...

There is so much pressure to be thinner, prettier, better, better, best! I am not thin, or even pretty for that matter. Having little fashion sense my daily wear is usually jeans and t-shirts. I'm not much to look at, being very overweight, with small breasts, and thin, mousy brown hair leaves most people wondering if I am a dyke.

Flipping through the pages in magazines or through the channels on tv and all I see is gorgeous girly girls. They look so put together and confident. Their shoes and accessories match their outfit to a tee. Hair that is full and smartly styled.

Helena Rubinstein once said, "There are no ugly women, just lazy ones".
I've also heard, "There are no ugly women, just poor ones".
They both hold a lot of truth in my world. Not that I am lazy as much as I don't have a clue where to begin. Make up and hair styles seem so time consuming and that's hard with a two year old running around.

Sometimes I see women who are larger then me and think, "that's a pretty jazzy outfit she has on". Typically I figure it looks nice on her mostly because she has larger breast then me and shrug it off.

I'd love to feel like a woman for once!

Really its harder being a guy

You are self conscience of your looks. You hide behind the baggy clothing like a mask. Once you realize that everyone around you sees how great you look not what you see in the mirror you will start to blossom. One of the most attractive attributes of a woman is self confidence.

First thing: Do all you can to get skinny. Men love to bang a skinny chick. It's not fair, but it's true. The good news is that you can do. Wake up early every morning do your exercises. If you can get to a gym and get a personal trainer, that's good. But if not, get a P90X DVD and stick to it. You'll get skinny before you know it. While you're doing all that, focus on makeup. See, makeup is relatively inexpensive, so you can try different colors and shades until you find the one that is right for you. You'll start to see you makeup sense come together as your weight comes down. Then you'll be ready for some cute outfits, and it'll be easier since all of the cute clothes are made for skinny chicks. Get the cute clothes. Want to write more, but I gotta go. Anyways, you get the idea.

i have a few suggestions hun if you would like

I am open to any of them!

do u ever wear makeup

Sometimes, I am not really that knowledgable about it all though. Try to avoid it so I don't look like a clown.

do u ever wear feminine colors?

I guess, yeah. Although much of what I have is grey, seems safer to just own grey.
