    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 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...

    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.
