Fat?

I think I'm fat. My thighs almost touch when I stand up! I think it might be just me but I know I am fatter then most of my friends. I don't want to be fat! I can hold all of my stomach fat in both of my hands. I don't know how much I weigh, I really want to know though so then I can know whether or not I am fat. I am super insecure and don't like wearing bathing suits because then I look fat and ugly. I am also shorter then all my friends and look so ugly, and like a baby. No matter what I do I am still ugly.

              Love, Star

Hey @Star23

Thank you for opening up to us about how you're feeling about your body. Can I ask, how long have you been feeling like this for? I find it interesting because at one point or another, we all have a more positive view about how attractive we feel, and then suddenly, things start to change, and it can be really helpful to understand what happened to make you start viewing yourself negatively. What do you think? Speak soon.

I think I really started  to feel insecure in 4th grade,  after my family moved to an island. I wasn't considered "short" in my old school, but here I was short and not as slim as most of my friends. I have continued feeling like I'm fat ever since. Also, when I started sixth grade I noticed I was shorter then all my friends, looked like I belonged in fourth grade, and was may more flat-chested. Thank you for replying, I figured nobody ever would.

Hey @Star23

Okay, so from what you've said, it sounds like entering an environment where you were different in height led to you starting to think this way about yourself. Is that fair to say? I guess I'm wondering, although you aren't feeling good about your weight, are there things about your appearance that you do like? If so, would you like to share with us? 🙂

I only like my hair, it is a copper-y color and moderately long. I would say my face isn't too bad but it is really babyish.

Hey there,

It's great to hear about some of the things that you do like about yourself 🙂

I'm wondering, for the next 15 times you feel bad about yourself, why don't you try reminding yourself of a few things you like about yourself and see if it makes you feel any better? It can take a while, but if we keep on doing this, we can change our perspective from negative to positive. We are in complete control of how we view ourselves and our self-esteem, and doing something like this can really put you back in the driver's seat of your confidence. What do you think?

I am sure that you look beautiful!! Maybe try telling yourself positives about what you like about yourself? (You can talk to me if you feel like you need someone to talk to!)
