    Sometimes I Just Can't Stand Myself

    Some days I look in the mirror and think I am beautiful... but most days I look and feel so ugly I want to cry. When I think of how I look all I can see are my flaws. My lack of abs. My muscular legs. My fat arms. My lack of a defined chin. my nose ... I could go on and on. But...

    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. =

    BDD

    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 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...

    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.
