Hi, typically I go by Sombra on most places, but it was taken. So you can call me Shadowynd, Sombra, Shadow, or Ookami (okay the last one is random but makes sense...just take my word for it).
I've wanted to lose weight for a while. Not necessarily for health reasons, but because firstly, I'd love to wear some better clothes. And secondly, I'm a huge anime fan and would love to dress up/cosplay as some of my favorite characters at conventions but I don't think that anyone I'd dress up as right now would look good 'cause of my size...plus the less I weigh, the less fabric I'd have to buy.
I do hope to learn a lot on this site.
Interests/Hobbies: Anime, Art, Drawing, Singing, Watching Dog Shows, playing Stepmania (on my laptop), DDR (I need to play this more)
Movies: Princess Mononoke, Paprika, Detroit Metal City, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro, The Lion King
TV Shows: Soul Eater, Saturday Night Live, Home Improvement, Spongebob Squarepants, South Park
Music: I love most music except most country, death metal, and gangsta rap, but I love Japanese pop, rap, hip-hop, etc. the best. Some of my favorite artists are Crystal Kay, Flow, Home Made Kazoku, Diggy-Mo, Origa, Heartsdales, and more.
I've been reading you blogs. Don't censor yourself. It's your blog, your outlet. I admit, mine is self centered and probably not helpful to anyone, but it's MINE. I use it to vent A LOT. Sometimes it's just fluffiness.
Everyone has their reasons for dropping weight. Mine were not health related. I was textbook healthy. Low blood pressure, cholesterol was normal, no real issues that could be "helped" by losing weight.
I saw myself in a picture and hated myself. Lots of issues with that, but it is true. Still have issues with that. I wanted to look better and I feel that I do.
The reason I want to up my lean body mass = I can eat more.
That being said, I just don't like hearing about people talking about doing things that WILL make them unhealthy. Acceptance of who you are, what you are is important. If you don't like something about yourself. Change it or shut up.
That wasn't directed at anyone, but just how I feel about things sometimes. Just wanted to say that not everyone on here is completely driven by the "being healthy" mentality. I am a little, but mostly vanity.

Let others be GUIDES,
You are your own unique person.
After reading your latest blog, I just wondered if there was anyone who you looked up to.
You've got a lot going on in your head and in your past. But don't we all? We all either learn to supress the bad in our lives or dwell on it. Child abuse, bullying or worse. But you have a heart with noble ideals. That's what you know is right and worth stiving for. GO FOR IT.
Be your own kind of beautiful. That's all you can. Finding out who you really are is going to be the challenge.
