Hawaii here I come!
I have always been slim but I love to eat drink and be merry. I gave up on the flat belly idea in my fortys I'm almost 73 now. After giving in to the inevitable I named my belly Virginia. I figured anything that close to you needs a name. Blessings for your Hawaii trip.
just read this now and THANK YOU. I gained some weight in the last two years and summer has shifted from my favourite season to i-need-to-hide-my-body season. Thank you for reminding me that it's ok and not to obsess over it. I'm going to buy a bikini now :)
so good so resonant ❤️❤️❤️❤️ if i read this at 15 it would have done wonders for me & im happy it exists now
We're all about the body positivity! It's not always easy but I think you really captured the thought process that happens. 👍 our webcomic is about a skeleton and a baby ghost so our dynamic with body image is a bit different but I think that helps us address it!
I totally relate to this and I’m so glad you are embracing the bikinis! Have so much fun in hawaii! -- you deserve it ❤️
Fantastic way to tackle such a vulnerable topic! Thank you for this post!
Enjoy your trip! (Thank you for your honesty!)
So sorry have said that stuff to hurt you!
Great post, Lian! You’re awesome! Hope you have a great trip!!
Have a great trip!
Have so much fun! That vest trick will definitely work!
AWESOME post. The body issues continue for women, no matter what age, color, size. Enjoy the body you have!! I have to tell myself that all the time. Celebrate its capabilities.
And enjoy the Big Island. I live on Oahu but Hawaii is my favorite to visit. The volcano is awe-inspiring and a drastically different landscape than you'll find anywhere else. I also love the far north end of the island--up in Kohala is the birthplace of Kamehameha I, lots of cool archaeological sites, rugged coastline, big views and few people. Wishing you a great time!
Have the absolute best time in Hawaii!!! Asian parents can be so blunt when it comes to bodies-- I totally feel you 🥲. Your abs are also alive and well, they are just chilling under a nice blanket of insulation 😌
Yay! Have fun and swim near turtles!
Have a marvelous trip! You deserve it! It’s been a rough day, but that second to last illustration genuinely made me smile. Thank you. 😌
Thank you for such a vulnerable post. You are not alone! I hope you can set all your fucks down and truly enjoy your trip. Your work is fabulous and you deserve fantastic self-care time. :)
