You ladies have absolutely no idea what i would do to be "fat". It's not that i'm deathly skinny (i have a 21.3 BMI) but it's because i'm tall and i look even skinnier. I remember one summer i went on this weight gain diet. I ate nothing but honey nut cheerios and bananas. I gained about 20 pounds. I was ecstatic.

This is why when I was a young girl (11 years old) kids had fun of me cause I was a bit fat. This thing sign me a lot. I know that I have a good body, proportioned and absolutely not fat..but I do not have a good relate with food and sometimes I'd like to be better of what I am..even if I do not need it. I am happy to have the chance to say this to you girls, because no one generally understand.

that pic is spooky - but yeah, I think everybody is at least sometimes body-conscious. it just depends, sometimes I love my body, sometimes I don't, and it's the same with my face...

Reading these comments made me very sad, especially seeing people who are taller than me and weigh less than me are saying that they are fat/unhappy/want to lose weight! Whaaat! I am 5'6" 130 lbs and happy with my weight because I am healthy and strong, I work out almost every day and I am vegetarian. I can't even imagine weighing less, I would be way too skinny and probably sick. I don't care too much about the numbers on the scale/my pants anyway because it's more important to be healthy than to weigh less. This is a very sad set of comments to read. It shows that we as women need to stop picking each other apart.

I'm always thinking about my body. I hit puverity away before most girls so I grew up with a negative image. "You're too busty" "Where are you hips" "Your sister and you look nothing alike. I guess you are the brainy one." However, my first year of college made me realize how AWESOME I am. lol I love my body, I actually found out I got the "perfect" ratio, the only all the bombshells have. The only things I wish I could change is my stretch marks and my bust. BUT I LOVE ME!!!

I'm overweight and a little self conscious but I could be a lot worse. It really depends on all the people I'm going to be around. I know that I can wear clothes that make me look great.

i am body conscious, but for me, at least, it's a positive thing... i love my body, but i feel like i'm able to take stock of the state it's in without it being a traumatic experience. like everyone, i have good days and bad days, but i feel very lucky that my good days far outnumber the bad ones. :)

of course. well, i'm born Japan, where every single girls are under 100lbs. it's just so crazy. i'm 5'1, and 110lbs, people does call me fat. i can not find jeans that fits me, i get frustrated when i'm around japanese girls. i'm so happy i'm in US cause i guess i'm normal size for my height, not FAT. i don't think i can live in japan :(

I'm 5'9 and 115 pounds and I'm Really self conscious. I feel fat almost everyday. After reading all these posts it seems most people feel the same way I do. I helps to know It's normal to feel this way but I wish everyone felt better about themselves.

Reading these post have somehow made me feel worse. I'm 5'4" and 135. I wear a size 4/6 so in reality I know I'm not huge, but I'm still 20-30 lbs heavier than the rest of you. I swim and lift weights but that doesn't change anything to me. I never had a problem with my height until I started getting into fashion. Now I can't move or buy anything without thinking about that.

I'm skinny and I hate it. I'm 5'8" and 135. I hate going shopping because i can never find jeans that are long enough. My legs are very long, which most people love but i hate it. I'm small on top too, but i got a butt, so it's okay. No matter how much i eat i gain only abit of weight. The sad thing is, it goes to my belly.

I'm very happy with my body, I won't lie I do have fat days or too short days (I'm only 5'0 foot tall) but I do embrace my petty figure as much as I can. I think that is all about loving what you got and if you really don't like something instead of complaining taking action.

A lot of days, I am unhappy with the way I look. I feel flabby and hate certain body parts despite knowing that at 5'4 and 104 lbs, I could never bee considered fat. I'm working on it, but considering that I was anorexic years ago, I wonder if I'll ever be able to look at myself objectively.

I'm more comfortable with myself than what I use to be when I was younger. Not completely, but better.

I'm extremely body conscious. I'm overweight and weirdly proportioned. If I could lose 50-60lbs I'd be really happy.
