odd one out .

i've been struggling with my self body image for a while now. i'm only thirteen years old, but ever since the fifth grade, my body image & appearance has been something that i'm not comfortable with at all. i only entered junior high last year, which was a huge step for me. after a couple months into it, i started feeling the pressure of having to be pretty & having to look my best all the time. to me, personally i felt as if it was like a competition or something. i mean, i look at my friends all the time & they're all just so beautiful & skinny & thin. most of them have boyfriends & i know why. i feel as if i am ugly, fat, & overweight. i don't know how to feel good about myself at all. i don't know how to eat right. i feel as if there is something completely wrong with me. please, can someone please just help me out here. give me some ways to feel better about myself or some different ways to lose weight.

the best advice i can think of to give you is to talk to your parents and/or your doctor, or your school counselor.

Tips to feel better about your body
by: Anonymous

Your not the "odd" one out i felt the same way at your age. I started to run a cuople times a week and go to the gym from time to time i started to lose weight and feel better about myself. Do dont anything too excessively it could hurt your body. Just try to eat healthier as well not so much candy and soda, more fruits and veges and water is important as well. I am sure you are beautiful as well. Just because you arent stick thin doesnt mean that you arent. Curves are just as beautiful if not more.
