But the first time that I felt self-conscious about my body, I was very young, probably only about 4 years old if that. I was at a swimming lesson and we were all lined up along the edge of the pool. The swimming teacher walked along the line-up (true military style lol), stopped when he got to me, tapped my tummy and told me to hold it in Then when I got home, I looked at a photo of myself (which my parents still have on display btw) and noticed that my tummy was poking out and the top I had on was quite tight around that area.
So from then on I guess I just felt how different my body was from other people's, and that it was somehow not good enough. And have always felt aware of every little bump and bulge (even though I am the only one who can see it or feel it)
