I'm confused about my body image right now. I have always been skinny. Never thought about my weight growing up. Never had a relationship with food. Age, life and kids caught up with me and I was shocked to discover how big I was. I was not that big in my head. So now that I have lost weight I'm so worried I'm going to get fat again and not realize it.

I would rather have a good plan today than a perfect plan two weeks from now. - General George S. Patton

Only recently have I realized how pretty I am when I look in the mirror. This has motivated me to want to lose weight so I can more confident wearing pretty clothes and make-up to accentuate these qualities. I think looking at how lovely my daughter is becoming, and how much she looks like me when I was younger/healthier/thinner, makes me see the beauty in myself more. Yes, I know...much more than three words emoticon

This may sound strange, but I still think of myself as thin. I haven't been thin in over 8 years, but I am continually surprised when I see myself in the mirror at how overweight I am. Then when I realize how big I have gotten I get all depressed and what do I do? I start munching. As a nurse who was trained in diet and nutrition you would think I would know better.

And we know that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord.

I see someone beautiful in the mirror, but feel disappointed in myself. I know that I am big, but don't see it in the mirror. How backwards is that. I just want the inside to feel like the outside. I am so confused.

On the inside I see a beautiful ,loving, and outgoing person

On the outside I see a person who is changing slowly but surely, I see my potential, what I will be with work, and I see determination!

At least today I see those things lol, they could change at any time!

Wow Chanook, I envy you.
This is my first post on this team. I am an older lady new to sparks. How do I see myself. I am an over weight older woman that needs to get control of herself. I do not seem to have any energy or desire to do what it takes to be healthy and the best I can be. I am also ungrateful for all that I have or I sure wouldn't feel this way. I just feel like a loser most of the time.

Be Happy, Terry

Wow, this story sounds so much like me!! I was heavy as a young teenager, then during high school I lost alot of weight, but still felt "fat"! I was always trying to hide behind baggy clothes. I realize how silly that was, because the baggy clothes that I was hiding behind were a size 7!! Boy, I would love to be able to wear that size now. I sure wouldn't be hiding!! Now that I have gained alot of weight, I feel disgusting and ugly all of the time. I actually get mad at my husband when he tells me that I am beautiful or sexy, because I feel like he is lying to me! Good luck in your journey! emoticon

I have a very distorted view of myself and it has changed over the years. When I was young I would see my reflection in a mirror or window and I saw a very ugly and heavy girl, and I wasn't heavy at all. Then there came a time where I would see my reflection and I was shocked because inside my head I felt thinner. Now I just see nothing but ugly. I know I'm starting on a new path to something better, but I still fight that reflection and all its negativity daily.

My husband says I'm beautiful, but I don't feel that way and haven't in a long time. The C-section had made those feelings much worse and I'm hoping that somewhere along the way I can find my way back to feeling good.

Trish, I feel that way too. I'll be exercising and thinking, "Man I smoking! I rock this bellydance/yoga booty ballet!" And then I look in the mirror and I just cringe.

The only good thing is that every week I see a smaller and more healthier version of myself jiggling away. So while I'm not exactly the hottie I see in my head, I know I'm doing my best and healthiest to get there.

I used to REALLY hate my body which resulted in a lot of self-hate and you know, it didn't get me anywhere but depressed. God knocked some sense into me at one point and now I am:

1) amazed with what my body is able to accomplish - even when I carry those exta 10. I gave birth to twins, another baby (6 years later), and currently, I can run over 9 miles at a time if I put my mind to it!
and 2) I realize that my body was made in the image of God and I am uniquely wonderful in his eyes. Every part of me is loved by God in the same way that every ounce of my children is loved by me. Nobody else's opinion matters!

I have a very distorted imagine of myself, I think I am thin like the person in my head. But when I look in the mirror all I can see is a middle aged fat woman. The negative comments immediately jump in my head and I turn away so disgusted at my true image.
