    I know this is going to sound horrible

    but sometimes - okay, most of it - I secretly envy anorexics. I know, I know - it's a **** thing to say. I've struggled with my weight most of my life, going on one crash diet after another. I just wish I had the strength to stop eating all together

    Body Image Versus Everything Else

    Even when people say that, "you should be you" and "don't worry about what others think," it's impossible to ignore external standards of beauty. It's ironically weighted heavily too -- physical beauty will give you greater benefit and will be worth more than any other factor of...

    I weighed 120 lbs. We went fishing with his boss and coworkers. As I gained weight his boss said to him that I was gaining weight and my bf told me. When I saw his boss I said thanks for being honest I'm tired of people lying to me. Great motivation.
