Can't Stand It - August 14th 2010, 12:33 AM

I think about my weight all the time... I'm not that bad, but I've gained double digit pounds in last few years. I have love handles and I think my arms look bad... I just feel so bad about myself. It's probably not as bad as I think but I just feel like people look at me and say "oh she's fat." I don't have the drive to lose weight, everytime I try I just ended up giving up. I've went a few weeks on a diet and working out. It got so bad, I was so unhappy. I felt very restricted and I had to stop because I just couldn't take it. I'll even pm you a picture if someone wants.

Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

I wish I had advice to give you, but I feel the same way about myself... I don't like the way I look, but I don't have the motivation to try to lose weight :/

But you're not alone, don't worry.

Holly, I will say it a thousand times if I have to, but you are beautiful. Pretty too. You can't see what you really look like, but the rest of us can (and I have seen pictures of you, so I know what I'm talking about.) It's not about dieting. It's about taking care of yourself, eating right, exercising, and having a piece of cake occasionally. It's about being healthy, not about being tiny. You don't need to lose weight, you are fine just the way you are.
