    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...

    I am so sorry but I am just tired of people

    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...

    Just recently I've realized I hate my body.

    . It's disgusting.. I hate myself.. Just the way I look disgusts me, everytime I look in the mirror I cry, Then I see other girls, and i just want to die, I just want surgery to fix everything, and the way society is now.. They expect girls to be perfect, I'm just done.

    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 don't hate my body entirely.

    I hate certain parts about it that I'm in the process of changing. But just to be clear, I do respect my body. I love that it works and that I have major health conditions that hold me back. The only thing wrong is how my mind thinks about it.This picture pretty much explains...

    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...

    and I have my days where I look in the mirror and hate everything I see. I can't tell you any one particular thing helped, but I can tell you what has helped me. I try to eat as clean as possible, but I let myself have indulgences. I work out, but I'm not obsessive about 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.

    It's now getting to the stage where I cannot look in the mirror unless it's to put my makeup on. Where I can only wear a small selection of clothing because if I try something else on I will get anxious. Like my thighs for example just seem abnormal, and my God when I sit down...
