Normal and body dysmorphic disorder are what come to mind now, the night I found this website.
I am crying because I feel normal. because I look at pictures of women who weigh what I did 3 months ago (210 lbs), what my general weight has been for the last couple of years (195 lbs) and what I weigh now (185 lbs).
Due to the media and social norms, a girl like me rarely sees others who look like me, especially in their underwear & swimsuits.
Out in public, you don't know if someone you think looks nice is the same weight or size as you.
I see myself and I figure I look horrible. I come to know I look horrible.
I see the women on this website and know they look beautiful. Maybe I can feel beautiful now too.
The My Body Gallery project needs real Women! We need your help to develop the project and build a collection of photos that will help more women see themselves more clearly. Upload a picture of your full body. Our photo submission process also allows you to block out part of the image to protect your identity, if you wish. Please note that you must be 18 to upload a photo.
