    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...

    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. =

    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.

    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...
