Body issues....is it just me?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I hate my body. I've always had body issues, even though I feel I've gotten past them they still linger in the back of my mind. I was raised by a father who told me everyday i was too fat, my hair wasn't right, etc. I was always thin(105-110), and I went through counseling as an adult to deal with it. I've had 3 kids and some days I have a very hard time accepting the way my body looks....constantly comparing myself to other women. I can't stand to see myself naked because it disgusts me. So ladies be honest with me, i can take criticism just please be kind about it. Am i being overly critical of myself or does every womam feel like this at some point or another?

My mom would call me all kinds of names growing up like bitch,assholes etc. She had issues and it wasn't my fucking problem. No one is perfect BTW. I notice beautiful women and I know they're not perfect. We are all different and thats what makes us beautiful. You are beautiful op.

Thank u, i completely understand, it took a long time in counseling to realize my father was the one who had the problem. Even now though i still hear that little "you are never gonna be thin enough" in the back of my head.

So what if you're not thin? It's your body and your choice to be how you want to be. There is no perfect body. When you have that thought in your head, immediately do something you enjoy. Read a book, garden, go for a walk. Don't let those thoughts run in your head. Shake them off and think of other important things. Good luck.

Thanks. It's like a diesese, I see myself in photos and think I look great but when I look in the mirror all I see is a fatass. It's really really stupid.

I think every woman on the planet belittles herself in the mirror and we all need to stop.

I was a size 0 at 5'7 and still felt fat and uncomfortable in my own body. You look great, but I understand where you're coming from.

I agree with this.

you are very pretty from the neck down. But your obvious lack of self esteem is unattractive. I mean you posted a pic of you in your underwear to get approval from a pack of wolves. It screams needy.



I have a Computer, a vibrator, & Chocolate..Why should I leave the house? ;-)

Omg yes thats exactly how i feel. My counselor told me some people have body dysmorphic disorder which is basically where they might weigh 100 lbs but see a fat person in the mirror. My issues aren't quite that bad but I am still extremely critical. Unfortunatly now days we live in a society that teaches women a thin body is the only beautiful body.
