Struggling to Accept My Body (Anonymous)

I have had two beautiful children, an 8 year old and 4 year old. I'm 34 now and I feel like since my second child and since hitting my 30's my body is much different then it used to be. My breasts are much less full and perky and my stomach will never be as [...]

True Story (Anonymous)

True story: I hate seeing myself in photos. I'm the heaviest I've been in my life and this beached whale look is not cute on me. I feel like a huge aching blob most of the time. Today while cleaning the bathroom I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and thought, "damn, I [...]
