    I Wish I Knew Why I Hated My Body

    I have never been happy with my body from an early. I would call myself ugly. I can't bear to look in a mirror some days. I am slightly over weight but nothing that is a health risk or impossible to get clothes for. Because of my weight I have stretch marks but these stretch...
