    I don't want to be really thin

    or anything. I have a nice shape and all (or at least I've been told that), it's just my stomach. I'm overweight and I have a gut. I want my stomach to be flat, that's all I ask. I want to feel confident wearing a two-piece swimsuit or wearing a skin-tight dress. I even have...

    I hate feeling those rolls of fat glide through my fingers. I hate how clothes look on me. I feel ugly. I always promise to work on my body issues, but then I feel inadequate and angry at myself. Next thing I know I`m bingeing on beer and potato chips.

    Omg Fat

    I have done everything except lipo to get rid of belly fat, and because of a disorder I have, nothing works. I try to accept myself the way I am, and make peace with my belly, but it is SOO hard to do when all I can see in the mirror is FAT.
