I was thinking about this today and realized I have greatly improved on this. I still have a ways to go, but I feel much better about myself than I used to. Things like going to so many places and turning in applications, calling the managers, wearing shorts around some people, actually looking up when I’m walking instead of staring at the ground, all of these things are part of my new found confidence. 5 years ago

I am learning to live in abundance. I have lost the weight I wanted to lose and I got an exciting new hair cut. More importantly, I have learned that loving oneself is a daily job and takes just as much work as any other relationship. I deserve at least that much! 5 years ago
I looked in the mirror this morning and for the first time in a very very long time I didn’t think I was fat and no one would love me… I don’t really know what I thought but I do know that I smiled and I don’t think I have ever smiled in front of a mirror… I just felt good about myself this morning and I love this feeling!!! 6 years ago
So, I’ve been studying myself lately trying to become comfortable with who I am. I had a long drawn-out cry about it last night with my husband and I realized so much. Being able to get all my frustrations about myself out in the open really helped me understand who I am in a lot of ways. I always felt like an outsider because I don’t drink alcohol or go to bars and I generally don’t have anything in common with anyone I know, and am always doing my own thing and not following the croud. This results in me spending a lot of time with myself. Anyway, for a long time I felt like there must be something wrong with me because I did not fit in, but after my outbreak of emotions last night I’ve realized that it’s okay to be different. It’s okay to be who I am. I guess I held a lot of guilt with me because I am different and I thought my husband secretly wished I was someone else. I’ve found that is completely not the case.
My advice for anyone trying to complete this goal is GET IT OUT! Get out loud anything you are thinking. Find someone to just listen to you cry and scream for as long as it takes and the answers will come to you eventually. This really worked for me I am truely okay with who I am now. 6 years ago
I don’t think I can really accomplish this. There is a couple of people that does make me feel great, but then there is the rest that keeps pushing me down and has been doing it forever. 6 years ago
I am very proud of myself and everything I do in life. I have looked into my life and seen the many things that happened that caused me to not have self confidence.
People seem to think that Fat people have to be sad and unhappy and depressed. They think that losing weight will make them happy and feel good.
It doesnt work you just find something esle you hate about yourself. I have learned to work from the inside out.
I did things that made me proud, discovered things. tried things, accomplished things. that is what made me feel good about myself.
Not my dress size.
I now have a online magazine going into its 4th year for size acceptance and empowerment.
I do many things for other organizations and for individuals.
I am a 3 year member of a womans support group and i am also a speaker for this group.
I have worked on myself and continue to. You never stop you just keep going.

Hello, I have no pride, I am not prowed of anything about me, I have lot of things, and accomplishments to be proud of but I hate myself and there isn’t even a good reson to hate myself. I don’t think I am worth anything, or desierving of anything and anyone, I just suffer from depression and down right self hate!!! and I wnat to change that. I suck and hate myself so much I even want to kill myself to. It has gotten real bad and it needs to change. I have to love myself before any one else can love witch makes it worse.

Since I lost a little bit of weight I was able to wear clothes that made me feel good about myself but that isn’t enough, I need to feel good without the help of material objects, I’ve been doing alot of self reflection and I feel I need to understand myself before I learn to love myself. 6 years ago
I have always had a serious problem with this. It’s just who I am, but every since I met my boyfriend, it has gotten a little better. 6 years ago
