on the other hand
this may be shallow of me to say (i swear i’m not trying to be) but i feel like 90% of my depression problems would be solved if i was good looking and wasn’t depressed about my weight and appearance and shyness problem(s)
i keep waiting till all thats over to go get help but
days like today i don’t care about anything and can’t get any work done, so i don’t know
I hope you don’t mind me making a mini-post out of this :)

Why is that shallow? You are speaking the truth! :) That is how I felt when I was reaaaally heavy. Most sane people are miserable when they are carrying extra weight and don’t feel good/confident about themselves. At least you can admit that. Instead you have these fat acceptance cheerleaders trying to turn it around and say they are the ones that are fine and thinner people are the ones that need to cater to them. Nope. Never gunna happen.
It wasn’t until I addressed why I was overeating (emotional reasons) and cut out processed foods and started exercising more, that I started to feel better about myself. Even though there were some weeks when the weight just wouldn’t come off, my body and my mind just felt better. I’m telling you, there is so much garbage in the food we eat, it is ridiculous (Anyone seen Food Inc?).
I’m not sure what you would describe as a shyness problem, but I realized that even though i was smaller, I still wan’t outgoing as I thought I’d be. More confident, yes! But still a bit shy. I think it actually in the interests of bw to be less crass, loud, vulgar, etc, like unfortunately most of us are and instead be a bit more reserved, light and feminine. Either way we draw attention to ourselves. One just happens to be a better way of doing it :)
