I Hate My Body

    Repulsive.

    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'm so over this body positivity trend.

    I've gotten past my chubby thighs, and the way my arms look fat in strapless tops. I've come to realize that even with a stomach that says "I had a baby three years ago and I'm too lazy to take up yoga" I like being able to feel my hip bones and ribs. I don't like the way my...

    I hate everything about my body.

    I diet excessively and mercilessly purge when I eat too much, even though I know it doesn't help. I'm a size 8 to size 10 jeans, 5'0 tall, and 144 pounds. I gained 20 pounds in the last 6 months, and I don't know how to stop it. I'm trying to work out, but my body and time isn't...

    I cannot believe I'm doing this,

    but-here we go, talking about my insecurities..| First of all, weight. I'm too ashamed to even say how much I weigh. My height, 5'8, I'm okay with. My face-**** I hate it. I have the weirdest face. I can't even describe it. I'm chubby yet I'm not. I have smallish eyes and a...

    I'm losing weight, but it all just feels like a

    slow process. I know I'm getting thinner, but I still despise everything about my body. It's all I can think about all the time. I want to be stick thin..

    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...

    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...

    Im 15 years old and weight 47kg.

    I'm underweight and I hate it. I feel like a walking skeleton. My muscles are so weak. And my bones "breakable". I am so scared of people judging me. I have absolutely no confidence. And I can't talk talk to boys, because I'm so afraid of what they think of me. I blush, if I...

    I'm always afraid I won't be fit enough.

    I run, I tell people its for health but really it's to punish my body for being so ******* hidious. I've ran so long one time I passed out. doctors say it's like cutting yourself. I hate my body and want to punish it, I want to run away from it. I wear a fake smile and just keep...

    Trapped

    The title says it all and I'm sure, if you're reading this, that you feel the same way. I feel trapped in my own body- like the beautiful girl that I feel on the inside is not what I see when I look in the mirror. I'm 6 foot 2, and likely still growing, as I'm only 18. I have no...

    Well I hate my body. I was bullied pretty bad

    of being over weight. But one day I realized I need to do something with my self so I exercised a lot. I lost weight but I still hate my body. I would compare my self with other girls. It got to the point where I didn't want to leave the house so people don't look at me. I would...

    Mainly my effing thighs.

    I hate them with a passion. And I hate my stomach so very very much. And the combination of these hates makes me insecure when wearing almost any pants.

    Please Change The Way You Look At Yourself

    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...

    This is one of the rare moments

    that I will talk openly about my insecurities. We probably heard a lot of people who've said they hate their body or they are unhappy with how they look. You are probably one of them too. Like you and the others, I dislike my body as well. Uneven skintone, dark underarms, my...

    how we will look, talk, the place we are going to grow up, etc. We grow up with all of our relatives telling us: "Oh, how handsome is this boy" or "how beautiful is this girl". We grow up with the idea we all are beautiful. But at the same time, we see other kids also judging...

    I Wish I Looked More Like A Girl

    I don't like the way my face or body looks. I too have a very masculine body. I am flat-chested, have a wide waist and I 'm short. I think my facial features are very masculine as well. I look a lot like my father. I just wish I had soft, feminine features instead of hard manly...

    Everything was okay until “she" walked in.

    As I watched her cross the gym floor, my stomach sunk. I could feel burning jealousy course through my veins like acid with each heart beat. You know this girl. She is the one you watch from afar with a strange combination of jealousy, self-loathing, and begrudging admiration...

    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 weigh around 121 pounds

    and I'm 5 foot 7/8 or so. I'm fine with my height, it's the weight that's the issue. Eating more is not the answer, from my diet and daily activities I should be 300 pounds. And I'm too self conscious to go to a gym, maybe if I had a friend to drag me along. My hair sucks, it...

    Hate My Body

    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 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...
