I Hate My Legs

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 95 People

    Due to genetics, my legs

    and calves are disproportionately larger than my upper body. Despite being 5' 1", running extensively, and weighing 113 lbs, I literally have 15" calves. I have a skinny upper body, which is why friends or guys I have liked feel shocked or even disgusted when I wear shorts or...

    My Journey To Acceptance

    I did it. I’m so proud of myself. I’m an 18 year old girl so I’ve pretty much had every body image problem in the book. I’m fat, my breasts aren’t big enough, my teeth aren’t straight enough, my hair is dead and lifeless, my stomach is too big, my feet are too wide...

    Short....

    I'm quite happy with my body, apart from my legs. They aren't long enough. I'm quite tall, and when i was a bit younger they seemed to be longer, but now they are looking shorter and I hate them! They aren't too bad, shape wise, but I just wish I had more length to them. I think...

    I hate my legs. Always have,

    probably always will. They look so fatty, especially on the back of my thighs. They're so pale, no matter how much sun they get, it doesn't tan. They look horrible. And all I ever wear is jeans now.

    I Loathe Tree-trunkish Legs

    I like those gams in the community icon, if only they were mine:P My legs almost never fail to elicit a "do you work out a lot?" because they're so muscular. Not just thighs but calves as well. They've also been called daikons, tree trunks, chunky, thick, big, and I...

    I Like the Shape

    The shape of my legs is ok, I just need some colour on them. They are so pasty right now, I try fake tan but I look orange. I don't want a natural tan though because skin cancer runs in my family and it's just not worth taking the risk. I hate showing my legs
