Why Do I Do That?

Practically everyday of my life some way some how I get told im beautiful, pretty, gorgeous, sexy, hot, ect... and most times when I look in the mirror after I do my hair and make up I feel that way, but some times I still feel like I could look better if I changed some things. not that im going to. other times I feel like I need to make a change to my body. I hate that I feel this way but I don't have the money to change my life style. what can I do to feel more confident in my own skin. I mean I look at these big girls and they love themselves and I look up to that. I want that confidence. but the only time I had that confidence is when im looking the way I like to picture myself, not skinny but more toned I guess. the last time I was like that was before I got pregnant. now I cant get back to it. and I feel like im stuck. do I settle and be unhappy or what because idk how to get back to the way I used to be.

Unfortunately the media always depicts "perfection" as the norm, but it really isn't. We are all beautiful in our own way. See yourself as a beautiful person, and hopefully you will grow to like who you are.

50 pounds. Awesome right, i was so depressed i wanted to kill my self. Fast forward to now, i have gained 20 back. You just have to be happy girl. I dont know how, still working on that.
