Selfie Saturdays Week 27

* submission for Elena's Selfie Saturdays and Rachel's show {off} your shot *

here is one challenge that has little to do with photography and a lot to do with self-esteem. I hate being fat but I don't think I'm ugly. so I've to get use to myself the way I am now. I only got fat because of the medication I've to take (wrote about it here) so I'm not used to me this way (and I already lost 30 kilos/ 66 pounds). I always feel fatter when I look at my photos than when I look in the mirror! would love to know what do you see?

hello dear Ana
I see kindness and great spirit. I love your eyebrows, they are so expressive. I see FUN. a few months back I did the selfie thing and wrote about it on my blog. I had great troubles with my camera timer and focus so that more often than not I wasn't even in the photo! or it was terribly out of focus. but I had a blast. you're beautiful Ana. don't doubt it.

Vejo um sorriso lindo e uns olhos que brilham.
Para além disso, vejo um cabelo fenomenal e uma pele excelente.
Para além disso, vejo uma pessoa cheia de força e vontade.
Um beijo enorme, Ana.

I see eyes that have a tremendous sparkle in them which means....there is alot of life, fun, vibrancy and maybe a bit of mischief in there! I also see a beautiful warm and friendly smile. That is what I see from this photo BUT...from all the photos you take, I see a creative soul with an amazing eye for beauty and creativity.

Dear Ana

Quite a challenge to do this selfie thing. I wouldn't like it myself.
But this blog post is about you :) :) :)

I see a very expressive face and a very creative and charming woman, with twinkling eyes, a beautiful and natural smile, a strong and special charisma ... A woman with courage and strength of will, living a creative life and sharing the beauty of it with a lot of people who love her as a person and because of her artistic realizations. A woman I adore because of her journey, her initiatives and for many many more reasons ... x

Eu vejo uma mulher maravilhosa e uma excelente amiga, linda por dentro e por fora ;)

Debby said...

Your photo brings a big smile to my face. I love that you posted it. I always enjoy seeing you! I see your beautiful spirit, oh my does it shine through - and it has absolutely nothing to do with body size or shape. We are SO much more than that. (That said, I so struggle with body image as well... thanks for putting a voice to it).
Big love.

Sofia Morgado said...

I see the Ana i met in the past, the strength, the joy, the smile, the creative eye... Things may have changed... You are wiser now but what I see is warmth, lobby and that sparkle in your eyes that everybody's talking about! Your inner child surfaces. You ARE beautiful! :)

Ana Eugenio said...

I used the lollipop to give me confidence! lol :) had to have something funny to make it less serious. thank you dear Debby :) wise words my dear. xoxo

Ana Eugenio said...

Stacia said...

I see friendly brown eyes and some intense dedication (30 kilos already, wow!). Keep it up!

Ana Eugenio said...

thank you dear Stacia :) now I'm stuck, it's harder to loose weight at a certain stage. I should go to a gym but I honestly don't like it. tried twice and only lasted two months each time. don't like the music, don't like the mirrors, don't like the public showers. get tired of it.

i see gentle eyes and hands, almost childish like innocent without malice. :)

Ana Eugenio said...

thank you dear @Tereza that is really very sweet :) felt good to read it. I guess you're right about the childish part, I'm 41 and everyone thinks I'm younger.
