How many of us have body insecurities

I do.

But I’m going to look at myself every morning in the mirror

And remind myself

I’m okay

Positive affirmation

Brain wash myself

I’ve seen people even write affirmations on their mirrors or put sticky notes…

I normally always have self image issues…
Even when I was at my smallest, I still didn’t realize how small I really was. Later I had a couple people tell me I was too skinny when I was at my smallest🤷‍♀️

Even though I am pregnant and weigh the most I ever have, I honestly don’t feel too bad in my body right now.

You must hide it well, because you don’t look over weight in your pictures to me. :parrot::parrot::parrot:

I hate my belly. Even after losing a hundred pounds I still have a bit of a belly. Good news is I found some shirts that hide it so I just wear those all the time

I am happy I lost it. This past week I’ve messed up on calories. I’ve had about 2,000 a day and for my metabolism that means weight gain. I’ve got to stick to 1600 a day. So after Christmas, I’m going to buckle down and get back on track

When i was a kid i really disliked my own head (i thought it was far too big). When i saw the old Frankenstein movie i felt i was and looked exactly like the monster:

Later on I got more relaxed.

I know it won’t help that much, but according to the photos i have seen of you, you look good and have got nothing to worry about. I know it doesn’t work that way. If you are convinced that something is wrong, you have to change your own attitude and thats easier said than done,

Some of the clothes I currently wear are becoming loose fitting. Need a new wardrobe soon although my body is still big for my height.

I was ok with my weight for a long time but now it’s frustrating me. I need to lose at least 100 pounds

It’s possible. I’ve lost 80lbs.But you have to figure out what is causing your weight gain. Mine was due to my meds, I eventually quit the 2 meds that made me overweight, and switched to a new one that doesn’t have that problem.

I will be 63 on January 1st, and I still haven’t gotten over my insecurities about my body, which is bad, because I’m heading downhill physically. I need to be thinking about exercise and diet as things to prolong my life because there are things I want to do before I kick the can. I want to see Europe again. I want to see the giant Redwoods in the Pacific Northwest. I want to see Maine because it is where Robert Frost lived. To a guy from Oklahoma the historic ambience of Europe is engrossing.

For me clozapine which I’m on for my schizophrenia causes weight gain but that’s not the only culprit. I have a history of eating disorders. I’m no longer anorexic/bulimic but I do binge a lot.

I’m cooking pork roast. I want to put bbq sauce on it once it’s done but the sauce has sugar in it and because I recently realized I’m a sugar addict I should not eat it.

@Naarai I might break down & eat some tortilla and barbecue pork for dinner. I mean who watches what they eat during the holiday season? It’s just a struggle I’m going through. Don’t give up on me.
