What's the ugliest part of your body? Anonymous 3951[Reply]

Let's sent it some love!


I'll start: it probably is my knees, they're fat, are slowly becoming wrinkled and have a hump above them. One of them is square shaped because of surgery.

I love you knees, thank you for supporting my body and carrying me around!

I've giant pores on my face, all brown and super visible. I also have skin tags/bumps (1-2 around my eyes, more on my body). And a lot of moles/sun spots/beauty spots/whatever you want to call them.

On the plus side, I don't get acne very often, and I get complimented on my skin tone.

back.jpg

The skin on the back of my torso, from my back to my lower back. I wish it were smooth and gorgeous, but nah, it's hairy, and has acne. Moisturizing body wash and using a lot more lotion seems to help, but I wish I could actually make it go away. I don't deal with acne of this sort anywhere else on my body, so idk why tf when designing my back God decided to go ham.

I have a short neck and ugly shoulders.

I have the same issue. I've switched up my skincare routine to involve more exfoliation on my back and I've started using a salicylic acid lotion on it too and I think it's improved a bit since I started about a week ago. I just hate how gross my skin looks back there. I want to it to be soft and pretty but god had to strike me down and foil my aspirations of feminine grace. Now I have to spend money to try to achieve the same beauty other girls have naturally.
I get acne on my face still too despite being almost 20. fml

Twerking for Sport Anonymous 4406[Reply]

Is it all just a meme?
I get that twerking is probably good cardio like any form of dancing, but does it really do anything as far as toning the booty is concerned?

I guess it's as good cardio as any other dancing, except DDR.

Anonymous 4421

No, muscles need added resistance in order to break down, and then grow more in mass. Unless you're doing squats, twerking does nothing for it.

Very tall for my people(Japan) at 188cm
Sometimes wish I was 5'0 but my legs helped me a lot in track and field events and its a somewhat fun social dynamic.
It limits the amount of guys that are interested most definitely. Eh more guys are looking for a casual fling with a tall girl than a relationship in my local experience
Some girls like it, girls I was involved with seemed to like me being so much taller than them

It's hard to find guys my height or shorter that aren't extremely insecure about their height.

Tall, I'm 5'10.
>Do you wish you could change your height?
I'd be willing to give literally everything to be shorter.
>Does it even matter that much when it comes to dating?
I've never had a bf.
>And for guys, do you have a preference?
Most guys are shorter than me and even if they happen to be taller then they might still not like tall girls. I've never had anybody be interested in me, therefore I can't afford to be picky.

i'm 154-156 cm
i like being petite tbh
i have my entire identity ingrained in being the "smol one" and sometimes i think it makes my anorexia worse because it's been ingrained in my head as a child that i'm the "skinny, petite one," so i have to maintain that image

It doesn't we reach peak bone mass around 20-30 years of age and it's downhill from there on. We do recover bone but it's just slower than the rate it is getting destroyed.

I never wanted kids until I met my husband, and even then I was in a state of self-denial for a LONG time. Apparently years of telling everyone you don’t want something makes it difficult to be honest with yourself about suddenly wanting that thing.

How has your experience been so far?
What do you appreciate or find rewarding in being a mother that was lost on the younger you?

>>How has your experience been so far?

It's easier than I thought it would be. Mine aren't particularly easy (though thankfully not particularly hard) kids from what I understand. There are some moms who act like it's all rainbows and butterflies and there is no such thing as a bad moment. Other moms seem to feel like their kids are a burden, but I think those are women who are just complainers in general. My experience has been in the middle; not exclusively good times but an overwhelmingly strong net positive.

>>What do you appreciate or find rewarding in being a mother that was lost on the younger you?


It's weird; my self concept hasn't quite yet changed to "being a mother." Like in my head I'm still the same woman I was at 20, adamantly against having kids. But I have two and my husband and I want at least one more. I think knowing that he wanted kids but wanted to be with me more than having kids, and telling me that he'd be with me no matter what, it showed me that having kids wasn't going to be a price I had to pay to society. It wasn't going to be something I "had to do." Once it felt like less of an obligation and I was confident and secure in myself as not "needing" to have kids to please anyone else, I slowly began to realize that I never didn't want kids, I wanted to not be told what I do or don't or will or won't want.

Not wanting kids was a form of rebellion, and once I was my own person, the need to rebel dissipated, and I was able to see the pros and cons in a very different light.

We're encouraged as women to ask ourselves why we do want certain things, but we're actually discouraged in my experience from thinking critically and deeply about why we don't want things.

Anonymous 6972

I don't hate kids at all, but I never felt the drive to have them. I know I'm the weird one, since it can be said the whole purpose of life, romantic love, attraction, etc is to have children. Still, I don't see the appeal and it seems so alien to me.

Cellulite Anonymous 4499[Reply]

Anyone else suffer? I am not even overweight but the back of my thighs look like shit.

It was at it's worse as I lived this insane hermit hikki lifestyle which is when most of it happened. Since being more active it reduced but can never go away.

What are some advices to minimize it as much as possible. What exercises would you do for the upper back thigh? My biggest fear is that all the exercise I am doing won't fix anything.

I hate that I feel confident looking at myself front on but seeing myself from behind it all falls apart.

it's literally a scientific fact, but you do you boo

>>6875

everything I said is written clearly on the pubmed articles I linked, as well as on the links you provided and any other review article you could randomly choose from. I'm not going to keep spoonfeeding you. No one is making fun of women for not having cellulite, that doesn't happen anywhere except inside your tiny, empty head. You are just mad because you're not getting the validation you think you deserve for lacking a feature that has been deemed unattractive but people are giving progressively less shits about. Anyway, I'm out.

Women have cellulite but it isn't sexual dimorphism, if it was people would look for it if they were trying to differentiate the genders between bodies, but most importantly if your first response to a woman saying she doesn't have cellulite is to start talking about women without breasts, uteruses, periods, etc it tells me everything I need to know, and if that didn't confirm it calling me a man because I was skeptical of this "scientific facts" with questionable studies


All I did was ask for the quote that said women everywhere all around the world from my link had cellulite with a legitimate study, because when I went back nowhere did it say all women all over had it, why are you getting so defensive if you don't care?

I started getting cellulite on my thighs and butt when I got into my 20s. It made me self conscious, until I saw all the girls around me had cellulite too.

Anonymous 6985

most women have cellulite. however, of course working out, cardio, and losing fat can reduce it significantly. it's perfectly normal though, and I'm sure no one else cares or notices except for you.

I'm a hypocrite though, b/c I hate mine too.

eating disorder thread Anonymous 4629[Reply]

eating disorder thread - its time for another

do you have an eating disorder?
which one?
are you attempting recovery?
how long have you had it?
what caused it?
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?


i have a purging disorder.
i kind of want to attempt recovery sometimes, then i see something like my crush looking happier talking to another girl thats skinnier than me, i think about how much better i could look/how i could compensate for my stupid ugly fact, and i think about the comments my dad gives me when i 'eat bad' even though im 19 bmi/skinnier than him (hes overweight, i think.) ive had mine since i was 13. i was a fat child growing up because my parents didnt know how to feed me, and instead of giving me healthy food they just called me fat/made fun of me. it disrupts my daily life heavily because i cant eat anything without purging after, and it just ruins my mood and has disrupted my health. ill be devastated if i go up 0.1 a pound

do you have an eating disorder?
yes
which one?
anorexia + binge eating
are you attempting recovery?
not really
how long have you had it?
6 years
what caused it?
my entire family had anorexia. my mother starves herself for as long as I could remember and so does my dad and sister. it became a huge family competition that no one really ever speaks of but we all feel it since we constantly ask eachother if the other person has ate to feel better about ourselves. its toxic as hell but oh well.
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?
all i ever think about is food and i spend hours and hours watching mukbangs and channels like amberlynn reid to motivate myself to not eat since i constantly crave bad foods. other than that, being constantly tired.

Anonymous 6929

>>6721
Very similar story here though while I didn't seek out help I ended up almost pushed into it by my school administration, rebelled and ended up recovering alone on my own. I still exercise a lot and limit what kinds and amounts of food I eat which is apparently a recovery no-no but I've been better for so long now, I'd say I'm really healthy now and truly enjoy food and my life and can deal with having a fuller womanly looking body and still often find it beautiful.

Looking back on my sick self is like looking back on another world. I don't know how I thought I was "happy" being so miserable, ill and weak and chained down. It's such a shitty, shallow way to live and waste of time.

Anonymous 6947

>do you have an eating disorder?
Yes.
>which one?
Mild restricting. Also terrible BDD and an unstable body image.
>are you attempting recovery?
Yep. I'm going to an ED clinic next week.
>how long have you had it?
Over 10 years.
>what caused it?
I gained weight in grade 7 and hated how I was bigger than all the other girls. I lost weight by exercising and eating healthy in grade 8, then gained the weight back in grade 9. I started to over-exercise in grade 10 and managed to lose some weight but I was still around 155 at 5'6". The restricting started in grade 12 and the positive attention it got me kept me motivated. There was intense guilt around food, under eating and counting calories. In university it got worse because of stress. Then it persisted through my twenties.
how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?
I don't enjoy food that much. I see it as a means to an end to keep me alive, something to be measured and controlled. I feel guilty for eating when hungry. I feel like I don't deserve to eat. Eating and food is such a preoccupation that I worry about it almost all the time. I'm terrified of gaining weight and I want to continue to lose weight. Since I start treatment soon, I've been trying to lose more weight so that if I gain during treatment I won't be as big.

diagnosed binge eating disorder, I'm actually thin though, and go through phases of restriction
>are you attempting recovery?
yes!
>how long have you had it?
4 years, I think?
>what caused it?
I've always been thin, but I was a ballerina for several years, and started restricting so I could be even thinner so I could have the perfect ballet body. this triggered some hardcore binging after a while and the rest is history
>how does it disrupt your daily life, if it does?
it doesn't disrupt it too much anymore! but before it kinda took over my whole life and pretty much my every thought was about food and my body.

Fashion and style thread!

Anonymous 6950

That was interesting to see different perspectives. I’m a size 6 and when I wear a bodycon, or anything tight for that matter, I always wear a thong because I hate how my but looks in regular underwear.

I don’t really have any particular style. I love goth and punk fashion but my wardrobe doesn’t reflect that lol

Anonymous 6951

After watching the video, I'm assuming this is bait, but I'm going to take it.

It was actually pretty interesting to see the different body shapes all the women had. Like their fat distribution and how the dress flattered or didn't flatter them. One of the really heavy women had a really nice body shape that lent itself to the bodycon image/style. But the women with Apple body shapes or huge bellies not balanced out by thighs looked awful
. Similar thing with the skinniest woman. The dress was just not flattering on her.
