I struggle everyday with my body. I eat healthy and I work out everyday and I actually know proper ways to work out- or so I thought I did. But I keep seeming to get fatter everyday. I don't even want to see my friends because all I can think of is how much better they look and how unfair it is. It's not just the fat, it's the overall pictures. I'm not the fat chick with great breasts- nope! I'm tired of people lying saying it's in my head because it's not just what I see other people see it to. It's not fair and I have no idea what is left to do.

Try this, I want you to take a picture of yourself in a swimsuit or underwear or something form fitting and revealing. I want you to tuck that picture away. Then I want you to focus on your diet and exercise. Then once ever 30 days or so take another picture. Again, hide it away, but label it. Then after 180s I want you to look at all those pictures. You will see a change.
The problem with us seeing our own body image is that we see ourselves everyday in every way. Other people may not see us more than a couple of hours a day a couple times a week. So they can see the changes that you do not see. The only way to see these changes for ourselves is through photo graphs.
I wish I had taken more photo graphs. However, I did take my body fat percentage. That helped me see progress. Remember, grass will grow. However, it appears to do nothing if you just watch it and have nothing to compare it too.
