    so, I am about 5'2 and I'm 155 pounds.

    I don't feel pretty, ever. I used to be a swimmer, so I was tiny. Now that i'm in college and I don't play sports, I gain weight more than I am used to. I hate my body and the way I look. I want to be skinny again.

    All it takes is one person to call you ugly

    and then everyone else who said you're hot and attractive and sexy doesn't feel like they're being honest. For me it's a bit of both. Some call me ugly, some call me good looking. Honestly I don't think I'm good looking. So I tend to believe I'm ugly more than I'm good looking...
