    I'm losing weight and want to lose more.

    My friend is saying that I'm almost anorexic but im still fat. I eat small meals and drink lots of water and exercise frequently. I see myself as being fat and no where near being anorexic.

    I've been feeling quite insecure about my body.

    I also don't like that I'm so insecure about my body because it makes me feel superficial since I direct so much of my attention on my body's flaws. Ugh, I'm tired of feeling this way. :((((

    I have anorexia and sometimes it's hard to look

    in the mirror and like what I see. Sometimes I feel too fat, sometimes I feel too thin.

    My father did a good job constantly reminding

    me how ugly I was. How fat I was. How masculine I was. How much I look like a man. Having broad shoulders, strong jaw, small breasts, short neck, and narrow hips. I'm self conscious about not feeling womanly. I guess because I was treated like a boy. I had to be strong for...

    I'm extremely insecure at how short I am,

    and how young it makes me look. I look like I'm a teenager and im almost 22. I'm also 5'0. I've heard many times short girls are cute, but it's still a huge insecurity I can't get over.

    improve my body, but I never feel that I could ever reach my goals... I don't class myself as fat, but I always wish I was skinnier

    after I gave birth, I no longer believe that my body looks good. And I think that was the main reason my ex husband lost his interest towards me.

    I am 4'11" and 100 pounds, so I'm thin and petite. In August I found out that I was 12 weeks pregnant. I was in love at first sight when I first saw my baby, because I was told I would never be able to conceive. My child passed away at 17 weeks on September 17. I've been in bad...

    I have recently developed another insecurity.

    I have inverted nip.ples. In my opinion, I never thought they were weird. They are a bit bigger than a quarter, very light pink, and it never bothered me that they didn't 'pop out'. In my world, that was normal. This was until my most recent partner pointed it out. Until he had...
