Taylor Swift Knows What She's Talking About…

by Kate

If I could change something about my body, it would most likely be my middle section or my hair. I am a muscly kind of girl, the kind built for cold weather (half my family is from Sweden and the colder parts of the Netherlands) so I'm not fat just kind of sturdily built. The thing is, I'm currently working on being more positive about myself. I look at myself in the mirror every morning, and I tell myself I look good, no matter if I believe it or not. After awhile, I start to believe myself. My friend is 5'2, 107 lbs, works out almost every day, eats healthy meals, and is convinced she's fat. I'm 5'3, 137 lbs. The doctor says I'm right on track. Whatever.

Now, my friend is extremely self conscious and I guess it doesn't help that we have three friends who are literally sticks. Double zeros, the whole nine yards. They're naturally that thin, and they eat cheeseburgers like you wouldn't believe. I can't eat donuts without feeling guilty. We can't compare ourselves to each other, because we're all so different, and that makes a lot of sense to me. One friend's a stick, and another friend has larger hips. I'm in the middle. I don't have curves.
Taylor Swift knows what she's talking about. Being 15 sucks, totally. I don't wanna preach or anything sorry if I did, and having the media mess with us with giving us screwed up images of beauty is NOT fun.
But at the end of the day, I tell myself it'll be okay in the morning (it usually is) and that I'm beautiful.
Now to wait for a boyfriend…
