Strength and Empowerment Dec 16, 2016

I've struggled with weight my entire life. By the winter after high school graduation, I weighed 195lbs. This was mortifying to me. Within 5 months I lost 60 lbs. by doing cardio 6 hours a week and "eating clean." I was skinny! But I hated my body composition: flabby stomach and arms, no "toned" appearance.. and the weight loss never stuck. I regained and lost 15 lbs. for probably 3 years before I regained almost all of the weight due to my dietary and exercise lifestyle being unsustainable.
I Am Human and I Love Life Sep 21, 2016

I have struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I have been anorexic and bulimic. Even at my age of 54, I still suffer bulimia. I do not even know why I do it since I am not losing weight from it anymore. When I did lose weight from vomiting, my skin became very loose. I seldom do this anymore, and I am trying something a bit different. I have purchased the portion control containers, and I do believe they are helping me realize that I do not need to eat so much food to survive. Food is fuel. We eat to live, not live to eat! We should anyway!
Feelings of Lightness and Possibility Mar 5, 2016

I've been overweight since I was around 9, and had been obese (thanks, depression/alcohol abuse!) since I was at least 23, but despite being bullied about being The Fat Weird Kid, it's never bothered me much.  I think on some level, I'd maybe gained weight intentionally, as a way to armour myself, to have a convenient excuse for not participating in stuff.  My body was always sort of an afterthought at the best of times, and a minor inconvenience at the worst.
I Have Stopped Listening Jan 21, 2016

I have struggled with my weight since I was a little girl. I started gaining weight rapidly when I was 10, now 14 years later I'm still gaining weight.  After medical conditions, I have decided that once and for all I'm going to do something about my weight. A lot of people always say to me that I'm fat, ugly and some times even useless, BUT I've stopped listening to what they say. The only person who can judge me is myself.
Most Amazing Thing Dec 30, 2015

I was an anorexic for a little over 8 years. It was diagnosed the summer before my 6th grade year--no one really knows when it started originally. I have been a recovering anorexic for 6 months now and have gone from 80 something pounds to 130. I want to be happy, to feel ok in my skin, but it's always hard. Even my boyfriend, who I got healthy for, can't make me feel better about my body all the time. I found this site just today, in the worst week of insecurities I've had in a long while. And after the initial shock and crying fit, this is the most amazing thing I have ever seen. Thank you so much everyone, you make people like me see what beauty can really be even in ourselves.
I Do Not Need the Guilt of Being Human Oct 7, 2015

I'm 5 foot 7 and 10 stone again. I'm only 18 and throughout my short life I've always had problems with myself and my weight. I've been 6 stone and 12 stone and no matter what I am I can't stand my body. My biggest critic is myself and I know my ideal weight is directly in the middle of that, but I care too much about what people think.
I Need To Do This For Me Oct 7, 2015

I will be 26 this friday. I started gaining weight my junior year of high school, my senior year I got married and pregnant. I didnt really care about my weight at the time but when I became pregnant with my son I started to worry. I have had depression for a long time and it became worse when I had my son. I was home all the time with the two kids and found comfort in food. I was having trouble in my marriage because of my low self esteem. I was obsessed with losing weight yet didnt do anything to do it.
The Depth of Beauty Sep 15, 2015

I became self critical of my body when I was 7 or 8 years old because I felt I was too fat. I dealt with these feelings all through middle and high school and for a few years after. I felt that the fat on my body was something to be ashamed of and that it made me undesirable both as a lover and as an individual. My concern for my weight and eating habits seemed to consume me at times. I eventually began binge eating and then forcing myself to vomit around the age of 15. I did this fairly consistently for about 3 years. My body image issues overlapped confusingly with my sexual attraction for women.

30,000th Image Milestone
On Monday I was excited to discover that MyBodyGallery had reached another milestone: our 30,000th user-contributed image had been uploaded. I'm the person tasked with reviewing every single image that comes through our submission interface (there are several reasons we have to screen all images prior to making them live, including…ahem…what you might guess—let’s just say this non-puritanical website admin has seen some things that garnered a formidable blush!). When I saw this upload I was incredibly pleased to see that this momentous image was typical. Completely, utterly, almost boringly typical.
