*looks thoughtfully at previous post*Hmmmm . . . I know exactly how you feel. :? I am actually big-boned. My stomach looks kind of weird to me, but if I was skinnier, my ribs would stick out so far, that it would look like I was too skinny. My butt is really big, and so are my legs, it drives me nuts! But of course, all my friends say (as they are required to) that I am not fat and that I am really pretty. Sometimes, it gets on your nerves, you know? But, I suppose it is nice to have people supporting you.

In our era, it seems like girls don't even know how think well of themselves anymore (myself included, sometimes). We just label ourselves as "too fat" or "ugly" or "too skinny" along with so many other negative things. I know it sounds really corny and cheesy, but is it too much to ask to feel comfortable in one's own skin?
I'm going on vacation!!! I will be gone from the 9th to the 21st and will be in sunny SC. I'll keep an eye out for silver volos, but they're owners would probably have to be inside. :P

I'm not fat, but when I tell someone my weight they never believe me. I told a lady at a blood drive my weight, and she said "No way. You are so tiny." I'm not tiny in the least, but I definitely don't show my weight. I'm rather...ample up top and I have a wider frame. Whenever I get weighed, they always guess I'm about 20 pounds lighter than I am. And it's not muscle..haha.

I don't like my body at all, though. Even though I fit into a size 4/6/8 here in America, my stomach is always bloated (due to the PCOS I have.) I also really have to watch what I eat because if I don't, well. I will show my weight. My senior year in high school/ my first year of college I lost about 20 pounds, and my parents thought I looked way too thin, like unhealthily. This weight would probably have suited someone else, but I have a wider frame. I have gained it back, but I'm unhappy whenever anyone talks about food. I have issues with it, and used to have a border line eating disorder, and get upset when people talk about weight. It's kind of an issue in my family. I'm trying to relose some of it, but it's hard because of my PCOS which really screws up the way my body handles food.

Luckily I was put on medicine recently that's helping a ton, but I think it's going to take me awhile to become happy with how I look. Everyone tells me I look fine, but ... it's still going to take me awhile.

I'm the same way. I don't like to talk about food, and I loathe talking about weight. Especially my own. I'm slender, and I've always been so. But I had issues in the past, and unlike yours, my issue wasn't borderline, it was severe. So yeah, that topic is like, forever off-limits for me. :?

I'm like over weight, but I'm not obsese. I'm big for my age, but when I was growing up, I was the tallest, and now I'm probably the shortest. I'm about 5"4 and like.....I dunno, the scale is like Jacob imprinting on Bella scarry and so I think i'm about 179 pounds. I wear like 16-14 size pants but mostly 14 now. I'm trying to control and loose weight which him doign well with Tennis and stuff.

That's how I feel a lot of the time. My body style seems really irregular to me. I have a bit of a stomach but I'm a bit larger chested, and the style of t-shirt I wear usually minimizes that fact, so people consider me thinner than I am.

Does anyone else have really toned legs but then bigger thighs? Because if someone just saw me from right above the knees down they'd think I was someone completely different. It bugs me that my thighs are like that though.

I'm REAL self concious about my weight..
I was bulemic all through tenth grade.. I've never told anyone :(
The summer before tenth grade I went down three sizes in less than one month...
I'm not proud of it, but once I start I don't know how to stop. And my mother is always bothering me about my body and my weight :x

I'm 5 "8 1/2 and weigh 9 stone which I think is around 125lbs. I wear a size 8 uk (4 USA) but I'm really unfit and am not toned at all. I do no exercise apart from pe. I have a flat chest and no bum and no matter how much I eat I dont put weight on. I hate it because my joints, particularly my wrists, knees and elbows are horrible and skinny and I find it repulsive. My goal for the summer is to tone up and gain some muscle weight.
