    A couple of months ago I posted an experience

    stating how much I hate my body. Since then I have hit the gym hard and I don't know what you guys think but I can see a difference? 😁💪 I still hate my body and want to cry everytime I look in the mirror! But I'm making small positive changes - despite it being slowly it...

    Ugh, I hate my body so much.

    I don't feel attractive or wanted..  I've always felt this way since I was like 15, and no matter what I do I can't stop it :c I have and am on (currently) one of those diets where you don't eat anything for days, just drink. My mum always gets on my back about how it...

    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 am skinny, too skinny.

    . 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...

    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...

    Today's a bad day for me in terms of body image.

    I've been getting in shape so that kinda helps. But I still don't like the size of my pen1s. I have heard women talk about how they at least need an average sized pen1s to feel anything. I'm guessing that they figured every man in the conversation was average, but it just...

    see at certain moments when passing by a mirror. I'm okay with my smile & eyes & cheeks, I'm alright with my four dimples & nose. But one thing that lacks my favoritism is my body; I know I'm not the only one with this awful insecurity & I know I shouldn't think so negatively...

    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...

    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'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 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...
