I’ve been a dancer since a young age, but it wasn’t until I hit puberty that I was told I need to stay thin.
I was around ten and my teacher repeatedly told me that I shouldn’t weigh more than 108 pounds.
It’s been put in my head since a young age that I need to be thin to be successful.
I thought having a negative self body image was okay since I was a dancer.
When I got to middle school it was harder because I wasn’t as petite as my classmate’s, and I was a lot taller.
I still have to look at my body everyday in the mirror and accept that I’m not going to look like the rest of the petite dancers.
I still have a bad body image, but I’m slowly making my way towards accepting myself the way I am.

I hope one day I can love myself enough to start eating again, like some of the lovely and brave people on here. I’m a 6 foot, 130lb male, who’s been diagnosed with anorexia athletica as well as chew and spit syndrome. Everyday I struggle with feeling as though I am too fat (as well as my occasionally bad acne cysts). I know deep down that I’m not fat, however, I feel as though people will value me more if I remain emaciated. I hope that one day I can have the security to pick up a fork and stop this self-destructive cycle once and for all.

this is me. last year, I really liked a boy in my science class. and one day, he sat near me and looked at me. He said “Wow, she looks just like Becca. Same glasses, same hair color… she’s flat chested too!” then he sniggered and turned away. That whole year I was self conscious about how skinny I was. That boy wasn’t the sole reason, but it was the straw that broke the camel’s back. This year so far has been hard as well. A so called “friend” of mine made fun of my chest on several occasions. Twice in front of our friends. But now, I’ve decided I LOVE myself. I found this blog, looked through it and saw that slam poetry about Nash Grier’s video. I decided, yeah! I love myself. I’m accepting who I am, what I look like. I’m a perfect image of myself. And the next time someone looks at me and tells me to eat a cheeseburger, I’m going to flash them a smile and tell them I’ll have to squeeze it in with the delicious meal I have planned later. Your chest size has nothing to do with your inner beauty - the only kind of beauty you need.

Things may be hard for you right now but commit to loving yourself and you will in no time, it gets easier i promise.

I’ve never done this before and don’t really know what to say. But I’ve always been insecure about my body. It’s recently gotten really bad and I can feel myself slipping into past habits (disordered eating, self harm, but I won’t go into those here).
I’m just searching for some positivity. I see so many beautiful people on here that are happy with their bodies and I just wish I could be one of them.

Hey guys! My name is Kimmy and I’ve struggled with my body image for a very long time. It’s a terrible feeling & it’s a feeling I continue to battle. I love this blog, because it is so inspiring to see so many beautiful women and men embracing their bodies and loving themselves without hesitation. I recently read a quote by Oprah that summed up the importance of self-love, self confidence, self-worth, and self awareness:
“Step Away from the Mean Girls……and say bye-bye to feeling bad about your looks.Are you ready to stop colluding with a culture that makes so many of us feel physically inadequate? Say goodbye to your inner critic, and take this pledge to be kinder to yourself and others. This is a call to arms. A call to be gentle, to be forgiving, to be generous with yourself. The next time you look into the mirror, try to let go of the story line that says you’re too fat or too sallow, too ashy or too old, your eyes are too small or your nose too big; just look into the mirror and see your face. When the criticism drops away, what you will see then is just you, without judgment, and that is the first step toward transforming your experience of the world.” 

This quote speaks to me on so many levels. I have stretch marks, I have cellulite on my thighs, my arms jiggle, my tummy rolls when I sit, and society tells me that all of this, somehow, makes me less desirable, less valuable, less beautiful, less of a person.
Although it is nice to want to be fit and be healthy and look pretty and wear nice clothes, it is NOT cool to put down other men or women because they don’t meet societies standards, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, it is not cool to put yourself down or buy into other people’s petty criticisms of your body. It’s YOUR body & I think it’s time we all took control of our bodies and redefine “beauty”.

This blog really has helped me with my self image. 

My boyfriend and I broke up. He cheated on me. I felt worthless  and not good enough. I asked was wrong with me he did that? I loved him and I struggled to get over him. I fixated on my body being the issue. 
I don’t like my body and my weight goes up and down but seeing these women, no matter how they look saying they feel fabulous inspires me to try and love myself, even when i feel others can’t.
Thank you :)

This beautiful and intelligent girl wrote a very inspiring poem in response to Nash Grier’s video “What Guys Look For In Girls”. It shows just how ridiculous and harmful society’s standards of beauty and perfection are. It delivers an important message that more people need to hear.

I wish every person felt as free as I feel.
The good news is every person can.
5 years ago, this blog saved my life. Now I’m returning the favor.
You are not pretty, ugly, fat, gorgeous, skinny, or curvy. You are so much more. You have a functioning body that is alive and a brain that is thinking. You have ideas, aspirations, opinions, compassion, and strength. You can love, hate, empathize, and feel. You can connect with others. You can learn and teach. If you can love others, you can learn to love yourself. And once you do that, you will be absolutely free. Because once you love yourself, no one can tear you down ever again.
But how? How do you love yourself? That’s a harder task. You’ll need to let go of your need to be accepted by others. You’ll need to let go of the media’s ideal of beauty, because no one can achieve that (nor should they strive to). You’ll need to let go of your need to be seen as perfect by the world. Just be like Elsa and let it go! 
If you hide behind makeup like I used to, try wearing less and less each day until you feel comfortable going without it. Realize that no one around you cares what you look like, and even if they did, you don’t exist to impress them. Makeup should be used as an art, not as a shield. 
If you obsess over your weight like I used to, realize that if you’re unhappy with yourself now, you won’t be happy when you’re 10 pounds lighter either. There will always be something about your body you can “fix.” Instead of changing everything about it, accept it as it is. Love it as it is. Then think about what will make you happy, and exercise or diet in a healthy way if that’s what you want for yourself. 
If you think clothes and beauty products will make you happy, they won’t. Not on their own. They can enhance your life, but they won’t do shit if you don’t have a healthy mindset to begin with.
Don’t let anyone control you. Don’t let anyone tell you what is attractive and what is not. Only you can decide that for yourself.
If you want more help, then I want you to get it. I will never hesitate to answer any questions or talk with you about your self esteem, or body image, or anything in between and beyond. Just shoot me a message.
I’m proud of everyone on this site for taking the first steps towards freedom.
And remember: you aren’t beautiful. You are more.
