    Somedays Are Better Than Others

    Sometimes I feel like while I'm not crazy beautiful, I am "okay-looking". Being "okay-looking" is a good day. Then sometimes I really am disgusted with myself and how I look. And instead of trying to work-out more or take better care of myself I just kind of sleep or mope around...

    I'm Working

    A great deal on my self-image. I try to see myself as attractive. It's a long, difficult road I hope to get to. Maybe if I see myself that way, someone special might too. :)

    Always Ugly

    I have never been one of the beautiful girls growing up. I used to be anorexic because I thought that would make me pretty. Until this year I never wanted to eat until the start of this past fall. I gave up and started pigging out. I gained almost 20 pounds since then and now I...

    Wish I Was Gorgeous....

    I have always hated the way I look. I am 28 but look years younger and used to be a gymnast so have a boyish figure. I feel that this contributes to me looking less womanly and more childlike. I hate having no chest and am seriously considering a boob job. I have no photos of...

    Seems Impossible Compared To My Sisters

    I go back and fourth on this.

    Some days I am duly happy with how I look, but most of the time I can only pick out every imperfection real or imagined. I tend to think poorly of myself in general and self self sabotage. When I'm happy with myself I feel on top of the world. I wish I could feel that way more...

    People always tell you you're fine the way you are but everyone says that. My opinion is that if people actually thought that about eachother, then why do people still drool and obsess over the "pretty' people?! "No one cares unless you're pretty or dying.." and sadly that...

    When Is It Going to Be My Turn??

    My whole life I was painfully shy, chubby, and didn't have any friends. In 2000, I met who is now my husband, online. It's quite obvious that the only reason we're still together is because it's easier than splitting up. After he joined the AF, I steadily gained quite a bit more...

    All I Reallt Want....

    My self esteem depends heavily on how attractive I am to boys. When a lot of them hit on me I feel pretty good, for about a nanosecond until it fades back into the deep recesses of my dark low self esteem. And it seems that no matter how many senior guys stare at me walking down...

    Enough surgeries to make me look pretty. And even if there was, I would. End up looking like Michael Jackson before he passed away. They say if you don't look cute, that You gotta face for the radio. I don't even have a face for radio. 😂
