a question

how tall are you, how much do you weigh, and how do you feel about yourself (self esteem)

at my skinniest i was 155, my fattest 185, and after baby.... a whopping 235... im 220 now and 5'3 but i still have the self esteem i had when i was 155! i dont know why, i think i have an over inflated sense of self worth or something, maybe having to do with me being an only child and i was SPOILED ROTTEN. what about you ladies? no bashing, i know im fat you dont need to tell me this, but i still have good self esteem! do you?

  • You sure that is youre weight? I don't really believe you you look thinner than that to me in your pictures.
    Anyway I am 5'6" and I am of the older generation, I will not reveal my age, but you can think I am whatever age you want and i will let you.
    I am working on my self esteem, but I think I look damn good.

  • Im 21 5'4" weighed 185 before baby 205 at 40 weeks now about 175 after baby. So doing pretty good. Self esteem comes and goes depending on the day. As long as I dont look at myself naked in the mirror Im ok.

  • yeah true i dont look at myself naked in the mirror often :p

    and about not looking like i weigh that much, my face is a lie... it never got the memo to catch up with my body so its not as fat as the rest of me, i dont have any pictures showing my body (except the pregnant ones).

  • I am 25 and at my thinnest I was about 140lbs. I am 5'4" and after I had my first child I had gotten up to 209 and back down to 163. With my second I got up to 228 and am now 209 lbs. I still have self esteem and I always will. However, when I see older pictures I do stop to reminisce, lol.
