    I Am Overweight

    I've gained quite a bit of weight over the past couple of years.  Most of it was in a one year period while I was taking anti-depressants and hormones.  I ballooned up pretty fast.  However, my weight has stayed pretty stable for the past year.  I have lost 10...

    Tiny Little Flab

    I don't know. I can't say that I think that I'm fat, but I can't say that I am skinny either. I think I'm a little on the chubby side but people tell me that I'm skinnier than some other people. I don't know though. I can wear a bikini without it being embarassing, if thats...

    Sometimes I Just Can't Stand Myself

    So, what is the point in posting that I am fat in a thread about being not as fat as I think I am and therefore admitting that.  I don't think that I am not as fat as I think I am, that is the people and doctors around me.  I have recovered from an eating disorder which...

    I Make Myself Look Worse

    i always buy clothes that are way too big and bulky for me and make me look bigger than i am and frumpy.  the problem is that when i have clothes that other people say fit me well, i feel really self-conscious and just want to disappear. =

    Sounds Difficult..

    if you know that you aren't so fat as you think, you know it and so you'd have to not think of this anymore. But anyway.. I have the same feeling. I hate this little bit of fat I got on my belly. but maybe my thighs would look even fatter if I had a stomach like kate moss.
