    People tell me that I look fine, and that my body is how it is supposed to be. But, I just don't feel confortable in it. I know I shouldn't criticize my body, since there are people with real problems(missing body parts, discapacities, etc). I just can't help feeling that I have...

    I feel so alone with bulimia, I have told 3 people and no one understands or even knows how to react, they just seem sacred or repulsed by it. When I first started trying to loose weight it was a choice but now I cant stop thinking about weight and food, I really wish my friends...

    I don't hate it as I used to.

    But I still don't like it. All I got going for me really is my face and hands. I really admire woman who has beauty all over like Halle Berry. I'm certain after a big weight loss I'll like what I see when I'm naked. Its a slow process but it is sure.

    My body is horrible. It's functional for the most part, and for that I am grateful. But strictly aesthetically... it's disgusting. I'm trying hard to whip it into shape, but it's taking a looong time to see any results. I loathe the way my body looks, and it affects almost every...

    I don't mind being chubby

    but what I don't like is my hersatism. Idk if that's how it's spelled. Does anyone else have it? I have thick course on my neck, belly, lower back.... And... My butt. I shave/wax it but it comes back. I always try to make sure it's dark or I'm partly covered up when I have sex...

    I hate it. Always hungry, tired, angry, sad. No control with food. Binge, purge, starve, work out. It never ends. My body will never be good enough.

    A Lifetime Obsession

    I've never liked my body.  I grew up the ugly girl.  Not the fat girl, just ugly.  Ugly hand me down clothes, ugly haircuts my mom would give me, crooked glasses, unibrow, the works.  Maybe my weight was the only thing I could ever control about my appearance.  I don't...

    I feel really insecure with my body.

    I think that what I have is called hirsutism but I'm not sure. It's hard for a 15 year old girl not being able to wear shorts or tank tops when your friends are wearing that. I've tried shaving but it doesn't last long and I'm scared that waxing might hurt. Having this problem...

    I'm too skinny and everyone says skinny shaming

    doesn't exist yet I'm too skinny and I try to gain weight but I can't. I'm not even THAT skinny. I'm a dress size 4 and pant size 2. "Are you even eating?" "Real women have curves." "Men don't like skeletons." Sometimes I like the way my body looks but after these comments I...

    I don't and it really doesn't matter at the end

    of the day. It's there so I just have to live with it. Plus it's not like someone is going to see me naked. Nor am I ever going to be in a relationship that I'll have to be concerned or care what others think of me.

    I don't like my body.

    I think I'm a bit fat.. I exercise every evening to get a flatter stomach and less round hips. But I still see no difference. It's demotivating. I'm searching for someone to exchange pictures of my body with, someone who likes my body. Someone who helps me to keep doing those...

    Why can't have a flat tummy

    and skinnier thighs like other girls? Instead I'm fat and ugly. I get jealous whenever I compare my body with other people and it makes me feel small and well....ugly. I sometimes cry myself to sleep at night because of this. My parents say that I'm not fat and that I'm healthy...

    Some would say I'm perfect, got the nicest body in the world. Sure it looks good in clothes. But naked it looks horrible to me. I refuse to wear lingerie that has thongs because my butt is hideous. I truly hate my butt. I've lost some weight and now its even more pancake-ish. My...
