    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...

    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

    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.
