Usually. Once in a while I have a bad day but for the most part I'm happy with myself.
I try to avoid mirrors from my chest down...lol..
My belly,rear,and thighs...oh my:)
Quoting ShellLea:Usually. Once in a while I have a bad day but for the most part I'm happy with myself.
It depends on the day and the mood I am in. Today I am feeling okay and getting ready to workout. Tomorrow I may feel fat and gross and bloated. A lot of my perception comes from my childhood and trying to quelch those feelings of not being pretty enough or thin enough...I totally feed off of compliments; so I used to try and fish for them from my dh; but now I don't bother much...it takes too much effort. Overall though, I think I am average...brown hair, green eyes, 5'6", 135 lb, etc...just very blah.
Yeah, it does depend.
The inside feelings reflect on the outside- everytime.
No I've never been happy with what I looked like. But over the years I've learned to somewhat live with it. I have no choice. Besides we never see ourselves as others see us. A few weeks ago we had friends over and the wife was telling me all kinds of compliments and I'm thinking "UH!? really she obviously sees something I don't see"
I have always been very self confident and really love the way I look. My husband thinks I'm a bit vain,lol, but so is he. I'm happy with myself whether I'm at my ideal weight or nine months pregnant.
I have come a long way when it comes to my image. I have dealt with body image issues in the past, especially as a teen. Now I have good days and bad days but I don't obsess like I used to.
