You shouldn't compare yourself to anyone! Everybody is different.

Judging by your picture you're not fat at all. Maybe you have body dismorphic sydrome(er maybe the name is wrong) which is where you think you are ugly when in actuality youre the opposite. kinda like the people who having multiple cosmetic surgeries because they never feel good enough. Tyra or dr phil did a show on it. i can send you a link if you want.
Believe me i'd kill to look like you have your skin body ect. Wish i looked like you, then i could get a boyfriend.

*hugs*

I know how you feel. Even when I was at my lowest weight (which I now see was practically skeletal), I could have sworn to you I was as fat as I am now.

Even now, sometimes I can see myself as thinner one minute and massive the next. I'm not talking about a slight pudge, I look in the mirror and I appear to have gained a stone in the course of a few hours.

It's difficult because I never can know or accept which is the real body staring back. *hugs* I don't know if you have this, but I also have serious issues with body symmetry (I am convinced the right half of my body is fatter than the left, for a start). I wish I had words of advise, but I just wanted to let you know I completely feel your pain.

I am guilty of comparison. When I get off the train on my way to work in the morning sometimes, I think everyone around me is super slim or if they are not, they seem to have really good taste in clothes. It is one part of me that I need to recognise. When I start to lose control of things, I feel down about my body. I mean, to have some taste in dress would be good! but I f****g hate clothes shopping with a passion. not because of my size. I always have. I will never be a shopaholic because it is too much work! When you feel good about yourself - and that doesn't have to mean your life is rosy, your body will look better too. I know that much because I generally do feel good about myself. There are times when it is a struggle though...

Constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position.

Because you see movies, music vids, read magazines, and most of all you are bombarded by advertising. All advertising has the same intent; to make you feel dissatisfied....'but if you just had our product, things could be different, you could be like the gorgeous happy sexy people you see here using our product.'
