    people say they hate their body

    but they really don't understand what it's like to have a very bad and truly hideous body. my body is just absolutely terrible, that's just it. there's no better way to describe it. like at least if you're big, when you take off your shirt in front of your partner they see...

    I've always hated my body.

    I'm 18, 5'5, and instead of my usual 115-120 lbs, I'm just a tad heavier than I'd like to be (still..at least I lose weight fast) but no matter what I do I just don't think I'll ever be happy with myself

    I've never been skinny

    but I used to be so much smaller. My daughter ruined my body. I can barely look at myself in the mirror. I really don't deserve to eat given what I've done to my figure.

    I have battled with loving my body

    since I was young. I was always bullied for being fat and in middle school and high school I battled with an eating disorder. Looking back, I see now that I was fine, I was beautiful. I don't feel like that now. I hate my body. I am covered in ugly scars that won't allow me to...

    My body disgusts me and

    for most of my life I've been comparing myself to other females thinking of how attractive and well put together they are, then there's me, an ugly sack of fat. I want to love myself but after so long of hating myself I don't know if I can. :'(

    What I see in the mirror physically sickens me

    sometimes. It makes me want to vomit. I hold an undeniable hatred for my body. I can't even bear to look at myself sometimes.

    Sometimes, when I take the time to admire a

    really pretty, curvy girl I wish that I could be lovelier. My bra size is 32A and I weigh 95lbs, 5'4. I guess I am petite, but my shoulders naturally hunch a bit. Sure there are others my age who are as small as me, but I am lanky and gangling compared to them. All I can do is...

    for bras today for an agonising hour of torture. I put loads of clothes into the basket. When it came to trying the bras on I completely broke down. As I stared at my reflection, all I saw was fat, ugly horror. I felt sick just looking at my reflection. I cried, silently while...

    I feel very uncomfortable sharing.

    I hate my body, and I hate myself because I'm unwilling to change it. I know that if I lost weight I'd find something new to hate, but I also know I would be much healthier and probably at least a little more confident. I'm not particularly un-confident, except during sex...

    For as long as I could remember,

    I have shaken, sometimes it isn't as bad as others, barely noticeable to others, although I always feel it. Its so bad that if I had a drink and it was full and I went to set it down, it'll end up over the counter as I have shaken it so it spilled. I can't hand someone a drink...

    I really do hate my body. Every time I look at my nude body in the mirror I'm disgusted by it. I'm a tall girl, 5'10, so I have a big body. My body is "thick" or "curvy" as some people would say but I just feel that I am fat. I feel my stomach, arms, and thighs are too fat. I...

    I used to hate my body with a passion. I hated my pale skin, my face, hair, body shape, small boobs, pale "fat" legs, hairy freckly arms. But I'm starting to change the way I look at myself. Genuinely thinking you are ugly is a really horrible feeling. I used to hate looking in...

    times people have assumed that I am 18+. I'M 14!!!!! I'M A FRESHMAN!!!!! Just because I'm 32F, doesn't mean I'm an adult! My sister has the perfect body. Pretty, petite, and curvy. I would trade for her body in a heartbeat.
