HNT...Not! (099/365)

“When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance. The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will."

TIME: 7:48 AM
PLACE:  Bathroom mirror

Time for another self-portrait!  It's been 90 days since my first self-portrait, so I decided I needed to do it again.  Lucky you!  Since January 9th, I've gotten a tattoo and lost about 20 pounds. (I'm not sure if you can see that in my face or not, but posting a full body portrait is not a bridge that I want to cross just yet!)

HNT is an acronym for "Half-Nekkid Thursday".  For those of you who wish to know more, you can read about it here with guidelines here.  Today's participant's links are in the comment section of Osbasso's blog post today.  Be aware, some folks do get more than just "half-nekkid" LOL.  So if nudity bothers you, DO NOT click the links!  (FYI - I didn't comment and am not a participant.)  My opinion?  The "nekkidness" doesn't bother me at all.  I'd love to participate in that way, but alas, due to current circumstances, it wouldn't be prudent.  I do think that many of these photos are amazing.  I mean, I had a hell of a time just taking this picture and these folks can get very creative.  And be honest, who doesn't enjoy getting accolades about how attractive you are?  You may now commence praising my beauty.  *gigglesnort*

Congratulations on the weight loss! Getting healthier is far easier said than done!

I'd say most - if not all - of your Project 365 photos qualify as HNT - at least in the way it was originally intended. Some have taken it quite a bit further than its moderate roots.

Monica - I've noticed that some of the HNT folks are going "retro" the first of the month. I really enjoy those photos.

Christina - No, it's not. Thank goodness for digital cameras and that delete button! LOL

bentonflocke - Thank you!

Sujomi (SuzyH) said...

ETW - I'm almost down to my wedding weight...the only problem is that the distribution of things on my body aren't quite the same! LOL

Susan - I love this particular quote as well. It is very true!

Mari - Congrats to you too! We'll both be rocking those swimsuits this summer! ;)

Oz Girl - Each time the light comes in the bathroom in the morning, the Rod Stewart song, Maggie May, comes to mind "The morning sun, when it's in your face really shows your age." LOL

breanna - Thanks sweetie!
