    Ok, well i think this probably is a very frequently occuring type of post.

    Anyway, i'm female and i'm 16,
    Sometimes i'm getting ready to go out and i think i look OK.
    Then i look back on photos and realise how DISGUSTING i actually looked, and the other day i saw my reflection in the mirror of this shop and i just thought, omg, could i be fatter or more ugly??

    I know this sounds incredibly self absorbed because every other girl my age probably feels the exact same way.

    I'm not the kind of person who believes that appearance is something that matters too much anyway, nevertheless i'm generally a very self conscious paranoid person, i always have been, and i don't feel comfortable within myself unless i feel like i look decent. I like to feel good about myself and the only way that happens is if i feel comfortable with my appearance.

    Anyway this extreme selfconsciousness has got so out of hand that i feel too paranoid to go to the gym and everything and its ridiculous.

    I'm about 5ft 5/6/7 and i'm 10st. Realistically, i know i need to loose quite a few pounds (I put on 1st over the gcse period). Its just that i'm not a naturally skinny person and i would hate to look like a stick. I've generally been , not happy, but satisfied with my weight, but recently every day all i think about is how obese and ugly i am!!

    I've always been around a size 10 but recently i've been more of a 12 =/
    anyway sorry to ramble, help tho?

    Try your best not to worry so much. From your height and size you don't sound that fat but if your not happy a balanced diet and exercise is the way to go. That way you can loose fat in a maintainable manner and get healthier. Its not easy but it will get you to your goals

    Maybe you could supply us with a pic?
    To be honest, though, I bet you're just as pretty as every other girl (if not moreso; some really attractive girls seem to think the opposite, who then proceed to ruin their image)

    it's perfectly normal to feel a little hung up about the way you look , everyone has things about themselves they dislike , we all go through it .

    just focus on the positive things and don't let it get out of hand , if it's really getting you down see your gp .

    Stop being so mean and harsh on yourself , and stop being so negative. it can't be that bad , you're more beautiful than you think , if I'm right size 12 isn't obese is it. And no one can help you but yourself , hit the gym or something , go for a jog ?.

    Confidence is the difference between a happy or sad existence. You need to master it. It's possible for everyone.

    How about you do something about it?

    Complaining on TSR wont make you lose the stone you gained.

    Just to reassure you that the average size for British women is 14/16.

    Your BMI is also ~22, which is perfectly normal as well.

    Seriously, don't worry I personally won't judge a girl on her weight unless she was really overweight (which you're not).
