    Hey guys, so a major goal of mine this year is to become completely comfortable with my own body as it is.

    I'm hoping this thread can be a place where we can share the positivity, and talk about the things that we do like about ourselves, rather than the things we don't.

    If you feel that you struggle with body image, try posting just one thing (or more if you can!) that you like about yourself. Hopefully, with time, we'll be able to keep coming back and adding more!

    2017 is officially the year to start loving yourself:heart:

    I think this kind of thing can be a bit dangerous because severely under/overweight people get into the mind set that they are fine with the way they are, but really they are destroying their body and eventually themselves and other people's lives.

    I'll never be satisfied until I reach my goal stats. Even then I'll probably be within 10lbs of reaching it and I'd have already moved the goalposts, happens every time :lol:

    This thread makes me laugh, the thought that I am not perfect is what drives me, if I was happy to be a bum I would never lift, would have smoked weed rather than going to school and probably masturbate on trains.

    Who doesn't masturbate on trains? No other way to exploit the irony of a fappening on a Virgin train!
    Get a girl and go have sex on a late night train.

    My eyes are brown, like the colour of...dirt. What colour are your eyes?

    However if my eyes were two different colours that would just awesome. Preferably blue and green, something eye-catching but won't scare people away.

    OK, but what if, hypothetically, one were to purchase all the seats?

    In my opinion, because of social media and the constant bombardment of ads we are exposed to thousands and thousands of people who look a hundred times better than us. It is inevitable that some of us would grow self-conscious and start comparing our physical appearance with that of...whoever is trending at the moment. And I think body positivity might be a counter to that. However, we should all strive for a balanced diet and a healthy body in order to feel good about ourselves.

    Anyway, that's my two pence on the issue and I hope your thread works out.
