Big Girls Shouldn't Eat

I've always been a little bigger than my friends were. I am trying to re-learn the whole body appearence thing. I may never really be 100% comfprtable with myself...but I can try.

Weight is simply a number.<br />
Honestly, what matters most I think, is being able to look at yourself in the mirror and being able to love what you see. If it's hard to do that, then think about you're favorite features. Start small. At first the only thing I liked were my eyes...it pays off, and eventually, you'll be so secure with yourself, it negative thoughts won't even cross your mind....anothing thing to remember is....I hate how I look when I wake up in the morning...my hair is all puffy, and my eyes look like that of a basset hound, but I know with a shower and 10 min prep I look fabulous.

At age 11 that would have been tough no matter which way you look at it. I can relate to you now, though. I am 5'3" and weigh 209 lbs. It's a constant struggle, but I have learned not to care so much about what others think, but how I feel about myself. Being older helps with that too, I think. In a way, I am fine with it because being divorced and available for a relationship again I want someone to love me as I am for who I am. I don't want to lose weight, get in a relationship, end up gaining it back, then have my partner lose interest. That was one of the many problems I had in my marriage.

Picture this.... Me, 11 years old...200lbs. 5'3'' <br />

You can only work with what you got..<br />

Honeslty I am more comfortable with my self now then ive ever been.<br />

Im 17, 5'5', 198lbs and you know what I think i pull the thick girl thing off pretty damn well

I have been on the heavy side since getting married 22 years ago. It doesn't help that I have hypothyroid. Believe it or not, I have never been able to adjust to it, especially when it comes to buying clothes. The only thing that prevents me from completely liking myself is my body/weight. It doesn't help that my looks are average at best. But being heavy/fat does not mean we cannot be beautiful, or at least feel it. I have one friend, in particular, who has been an inspiration to me. She is much heavier than I am, but she really knows how to present herself beautifully. She is one of the most beautiful women I know and has the personality to match. I have learned that, instead of focusing on how "bad" we look, we need to focus on how to use what we have in a beautiful way.

Im short, and have always struggled with my body image. When I was younger I had a lot of puppy fat and others used to tease me about it. This lead to a food disorder. I wont give details, but through my teenage years I got skinnier and skinnier until someone actually noticed. <br />

They got me help and support straight away, and now Im trying to put weight back on. <br />

I admire you for trying to get comfortable with your body-image, just remember it's your body. And when your happy, others should be too.
