requesting thoughts on my irregularity - September 21st 2013, 07:04 PM

So, my body is pretty unproportionate. My legs are literally twice the size of my torso. Legs are 41 in, torso is about 19. I'm not worried about this problem when I'm wearing clothes because I can sort of hide it, but what about when I take my shirt off or tuck in my shirt? At school, it's required to tuck in my shirt, so I think you guys can see my problem. I hate looking like this. I have been trying to elongate my torso by doing yoga and other stuff, but there is a certain point where that won't help anymore. Do i just live with it or what?(btw im turning 17 soon, and I'm a male).Thoughts appreciated.

Hey there.

Remember me? I just posted a message on your profile!

As for your question... I am not a doctor by any means so I wouldn't take my word as law, but everyone has different body types/shapes and almost all of them are completely normal. It's probably just your bone structure. While there are the stereotypical body types for guys, the reality is that there actually isn't one "right" way to be.

You're probably right that yoga would only help to an extent. If you feel self conscious about it (and you don't need to be) or are concerned that a medical issue is the cause, then I recommend that you speak with your doctor. They can give you some advice and probably ease your concerns.

Above all, though, try to just be happy with the way your body is. I know that this is a lot more difficult than it sounds and that it takes time but it's worth it in the end. You deserve to feel confident with yourself, and you have nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about.

I hope this helped a bit. If you need anything else, feel free to let me know.

Thanks for your advice divergent . I just saw my doctor a little while ago, so it would be a while for me to ask him in person. Last time I went, my doctor literally told me, "your body sucks". I guess I'll live with it for now.
