Growing up self-obsessed with my looks and relapsing into an unhealthy lifestyle

As a teenage girl I always wanted to look my best. For any girl around sixteen, a lot of time is spent in front of the mirror trying to look pretty. I would often get in trouble with my mom when she caught me stealing her makeup or her perfume. At the time my mother was very much against me using any makeup. She said that I did not need it and that I should forget about looking pretty and instead focus on my studies. I however continued with my self-obsessions and this continued even when I joined college.

I knew that I was pretty and that my tall shapely body was much more attractive than other girls. I however did not know how much this was an asset until I joined college. In college, being pretty is a huge plus and one can quickly become a superstar simply due to their physical appearances.

When I joined college the boys were immediately all over me. During the first few weeks I was quite naïve and I was confused not knowing what to make of all the fuss about me. Luckily I had good girl friends who helped me evade much of the attention from the boys and they also gave me some guidance on how to go about the whole issue.

I was able to avoid the lure of the stardom that college provides for pretty girls and I was able to concentrate on my education. This did not however mean that I stopped trying to look as pretty as possible. Now that I was in college and away from my mother I had the freedom of using makeup as much as I wanted. I became an expert at making myself look good.

Apart from using makeup I also developed a skill for dressing up. In college my favorite attire was leggings as I knew these best accentuated my shapely feminine body. I also found them comfortable. I had several pairs of leggings all of different colors and design.

Apart from, dressing up stylishly and appropriately using makeup for my face, I also paid great attention to my physique. Much of my beauty was due to my physique and I was worried that I would grow fat and spoil my appearances.

As such I paid great attention to what I ate. I also enrolled for yoga classes which I used to help me burn up calories and help me from getting fat. Overcoming my appetite was often a challenge and I sought different ways of helping to control my appetite. I used natural foods such as apple cider and white tea to help me to manage my weight.

During the time in college I managed to maintain a pretty trim figure. However, after college when I started working, I could not just keep up the strict principles. Today I am hardly the shapely beauty that graced high school. I no longer do physical exercises and I have become obsessed with junk. No wonder I no longer get lusty glances as I walk down the road.
