My Body Stories
I have recently been speaking with a friend of mine about doubts. Specifically relationship doubts.
I’m in probably the healthiest happiest relationship I’ve ever been in. But he’s not someone I would have picked out of a line up. And my doubts stem from our sizes. Specifically, my size.
I was a very self concious teen (like most girls are). In highschool I weighed at most 180, size 14 pants, XL shirt, and 32D bra. My girlfriends always told me I looked nice, but should lose weight if I ever wanted to date a great guy... my guy friends told me that I was pretty, but would never be their type unless I weighed 20-30lbs lighter.

A recent study found that 95% of non-eating disordered women overestimate the size of their hips by 16% and their waists by 25%, yet the same women were able to correctly estimate the width of a box.
