Eyes, Hair, and a Weight Gain

I'm not typically one to talk about my appearance, but I've been doing a lot better when it comes to my confidence, so I wanted to take the time to document this new found confidence that I've developed, while also giving a bit of an update about how my hair growing process is going. 

Not to brag, but I think that my eyes are my best feature. When it comes to the things about myself that I'm self conscious about, my eyes aren't one of those things. My eyes are a sort of dark gray/green color, and I have some of the longest lashes ever! Okay... I may be bragging a little bit. When I was home over Holiday Break, I went to get my eyes checked to see if I'd need a different prescription of contacts for this year. When I was there, I found out that my eyes stayed the same prescription and most likely were going to stay the same for the rest of my adult life! How exciting is that?? My glasses are going to continue to work for me when I want to give my eyes a break from my contacts because my vision isn't going to get any worse! My doctor said that I could look into Lasik Eye Surgery if I wanted to, but I don't think that I can because I have an astigmatism on the inside of my eyes. Oh well, I'm perfectly confident wearing my contacts and glasses! I do prefer contacts, because they help me show off my beat feature!

Now, on to my hair! I've been growing it out from my Pixie Cut for the past several months, and to me is seems loads longer than it used to be! Even though I think that it looks nice, I think that it's the "Justin Bieber Haircut" from 2010. I try to refrain from doing the hair flip. However, even though it looks very Justin Bieber-esque I won't let myself cut it. At the moment, I've been longing to be able to french braid my hair! I think that's the length that I'll grow it out to and keep it out for a while. The only downside is that I can't french braid my own hair... Sad, I know! but my hair is really fine, which makes it hard to hold onto, especially when I'm trying to do it myself. I've been trying to thicken my hair by doing all sorts of DIY remedies that I found on Pinterest. So far, none of them seem to be making any sort of a difference.

About the weight gain... Surprisingly enough, it hasn't bothered me. I didn't know that I had gain any weight until I went to put on an old dress that's more form fitting and it didn't fit. All of my other clothes fit just like they always have! I haven't gained 15 pounds, I walk around too much and do yoga too often to have gained that much, but I did gain about 6 or 7 pounds, which I can mainly see in my hips. However, I'm a naturally curvy person, and I've recently come to terms with the fact that I'll most likely never have a thigh gap, so I'm perfectly happy with my super curvy, kind of chunky appearance even though I originally never wanted to gain any wait at school.

All in all, I'm really happy about my vision, the appearance of my eyes, how quickly my hair is growing, and how my body looks despite the weight gain. Being this happy about myself is really weird to me, because it was such a huge issue for me for the longest time! This just goes to show that anything is possible. I never thought that I would be happy about my appearance until I lost a majority of my weight and had the perfect hair that always looked awesome.

What about yourself are you the most confident? What do you think your best feature is? Let me know!
