    It'S Not Me

    Somewhere in my youngest years, I was maybe around five or six years old, I realised that something not only "wasn't right" but was outright terribly wrong. I knew what it was then, and I still know it, and to some extent, I just ignore it most days.  But some days, and some of...

    Ought To

    I'd like to be happy with my body, but when you're fat it's kind of hard, ya' know? And that's why I gotta keep my weight under control. That and a positive mentality ought to do the trick.

    I Just Want To Be Happy

    All my life probably after the 2nd grade, I've been overweight, and of course you get teased for that when you're in school. Especially in high school, that becomes your identity. I was 18 years old and decided to lose my weight, and did so successfully, I went from 265lbs to...

    Fat And Lazy

    I don't buy into the "big is beautiful" movement. It's a sham. I am clinically obese. Let that be the first fact stated in my explanation. The second? Those of us who are overweight? We're not healthy. It doesn't matter how or why I got this way. Teaching me to love my body...

    Someday

    I haven't always hated my body, but having a baby and gaining 60 pounds when you were already trying to lose 20, has changed that.  I might have had tiny issues with my body before that, but not to the point where I hated how I looked.  I have lost the 60...

    I've Been Trying.

    In the last couple of years, I have moved a couple steps ahead. I went from HATING my body and obsessing over it, to not thinking much of it. Thats a step. Now the next step is to accept my body the way it is, and be happy looking in the mirror naked. I do not want to be ashamed...

    Somewhere the Choice Was Made...

    I can no longer remember the day life changed for me.  I have always had body image issues.  Mine led to life with anorexia nervosa.  And, the point in that, is that no matter how thin you are, how little you weigh, you are never thin enough, never light enough...

    My Body, Undesirable

    I love men. They are amazing. Why am I saying this here though? Most women seem to love men. But I doubt any woman would want to step into his shoes for her lifetime. No, no woman would want that. I admit, people have given me compliments on my looks before, people say I'm...

    Have I Ever?

    I remember being 6 years old and finding fault in my body. I wanted parts of it to disappear - I was simply too much. My negative body image quickly transformed into odd eating habits when I was 11, then a full-blown eating disorder by the time I was 14, and at 17, doctors...

    Should Accept

    I'm 21 years old and I just had my son 3 months ago. I've always had thick legs, but they used to be muscle. I've lost everything that was toned and even though I pretty much look the same size, my weight is definitely not the same and it eats away at me. And now I have stretch...

    I really don't have anything to complain about. There's nothing wrong with the way I look. However, sometimes I have a hard time feeling comfortable in my own skin. Some days I look in the mirror and think to myself "is that really me?" It's hard to explain. I'm not looking for...
