I Hate My Body

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 10,675 People

    So... I went clothes shopping

    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 hate how I look. I hate how ugly I am.

    I hate my body and I wish I could do something about it without paying tons of money. I want bigger boobs, I want a little ***, an I want no fat. None.

    I hate every single inch of my body every day I

    cry and stress over it! I try not to care but I can't not! Everything would be so much better if I was confident I dread even leaving my house 😫 just wish I could have a nice figure face and hair so people would want me instead of my friends

    I can't stand my muffin top,

    stretch marks, thunder thighs, fat butt, small breasts, etc. I hate it all. I have tried almost everything from working out to diets and nothing seems to be working.

    My dermatillomania makes me hate it more.

    I have so many scabs just on my scalp and fingers and lips and I never let them completely heal. I have a few other places I screw up but they aren't visible often, like my chest, shoulders, upper back, and upper arms. I can't stand it. I can't just stop though. Ugh, why do I...

    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...

    I am not happy with the way I look at all. I hate my body so much, there are seriously times where I just want to take a knife to every imperfection I have, and just cut it all up and destroy it for good. It really hurts to look in the mirror sometimes... I disgust myself...

    . I have been my whole life and I ******* hate it. I weigh like 90 pounds, and I'm as skinny as a pencil! I try working out and eating a **** ton and nothing works! Even after I had my child I weighed less after I had him before I even got pregnant! I'm very self conscious...

    I loved my body, until I found out my boyfriend

    didn't. I don't understand what's wrong with me, and it's driven me to a point of dangerous self destruction.

    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...

    that don't understand what it's like to be unattractive saying "be confident and you'll be attractive." NO. Confidence enhances what physical beauty you already have. It doesn't create some if there isn't any. I'm taking a stand for, for lack of a better term, "the uglies". No...

    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...

    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.

    I have always been a too skinny girl.

    Usually flat chest and bum. It drives me insane that no matter what I do, how much I eat, I will never gain an appropriate amount of weight. And to make it worst there are people who like to point that out, not knowing how much it hurts me and how much I cant control it.

    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 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...
