Hey, I'm 5"4 and about 110 lbs, I wouldn't mind being 100 lbs and hate the way I look.
I like your site because it says I should be comfortable with myself whatever my size, but on a bad day this just says to me that chubby is beautiful and that I need to gain 100lbs or so just to be beautiful, like I would ever let myself get like that anyway?
What I'm trying to say is this, for me, is both inspirational and damaging. But as much as i would love to lose weight, I would also give anything to be as confident as the wonderful people on here. In conclusion, you are doing a fab job, and I may disagree with this site sometimes but it's therapeutic to look through and
Love from a bulimic x
I usually only take photos from the neck up so no-one gets to see my body when they look at my photographs. I feel really inspired looking at all the photographs on this blog and every single girl I've seen on here, has been beautiful. I can see me submitting a full length photo of me soon. :D
i totally understand this story.
that's why i hate eating out or eating with friends because i feel like they look at me like saying "you are big enough, you shouldnt eat anymore"
and i feel like total shit.
even in my house i dont like people watching me eat.
i hope one day i can get over it.
With time, you will.
I, Deanne, was once afraid to eat in front of people. Fear they would judge me for eating too much. But now, I chow down wherever, with whomever. Big girls gotta eat too! <3
I am so different than I want to be because of my lack of self confidence and my shame of my weight. I'm not huge but I feel like my life is hindered because of my shame. I'm not the person I want to be. I don't dress the way I want to, in the style I want to, because I feel like I don't deserve to. My body isn't nice enough to. I have sacrificed friendships, jobs, parties, things related to college, and becoming my true self because of my mind constantly telling me I don't deserve these things/I'm not good enough for these things. All because of my weight.
Okay. So this is like the only place i felt comfortable posting this.
So there is this woman, who is like an intern in my english class. She is the absolute sweetest thing ever. But she is quite a big woman. 350, 400 lbs. The dudes in my class are such assholes to her. Always laughing when she walks around and things like that. She just looks so helpless. The other day, she was tearing little pieces of a cereal bar apart and eating them. She had only eaten like a fourth of the bar when one of the guys was like "what, are you not gonna share?" before he could even finish his sentence she was practically begging him to eat the rest of the cereal bar. He denied of course, because he was only saying anything in the first place to make a smart ass comment. Afterwards she just sat there all quite like and as figured didn't finishing her food. I know it doesn't sound like much. But if you could have seen this womans face, like the last thing she wanted him to do was think she was greedy or something. It was completely horrible. I knew exactly how she felt. She only wants these kids to accept her. She only wants to be normal, she wants to be able to eat a fucking cereal bar without some jerk off kid judging her. I knew exactly how she felt. I was in her place so many times. I don't expect any of you to really understand this fully, or care, and this probably seems like nothing at all. But I had to tell someone.
To think that people still act that way, is absolutely horrible. I hate that something like that happened to her, because nobody deserves to be treated that way. One day, the people who do those sorts of things, will realize they are in the wrong, and will pay for their actions.
All the girls on here are absolutley gorgeous and have amazing bodies, i just wish i could have the confidence of some on here and the courage to even show who i am, but i feel so uncomftable with my body. In my year at school there are so many stick thin girls who walk around complaining about how "fat" they are, and it makes me feel so bad about myself, i'm one of the biggest in my year, but i didn't think i was that big untill i compared myself to everyone else. But this page is amazing and again like i said, you're all beautifulx
It all comes from confidence and being comfortable with yourself. We have all been there, where we haven’t completely loved ourselves. It comes with time. Don’t give up, one day you WILL realize that you, too, are so beautiful.
