low self esteem

Postby yglee » Fri Oct 21, 2005 4:58 am

believe it or not I am only 65kg, size 6 or 8, depending on the designer, and my self esteem is at an all time low. Everytime I look at myself in the mirrow I just shake my head. Its ridiculous. I try to convince myself that everything comes in time, but how long does it take! :cry:

Hi Yglee,

Sometimes our low self esteem comes from not what is in the mirror but what is in our heads.

Maybe a new hair style / colour or Facial would lift your spirit. :D

thanks for your comforting words. I truly believe what you said. I took a few moments and looked at my life and determined what I have known for a long time. I am in a very stressful personal relationship that affects me in more ways than one. Until I fix it or remove myself from it thing are not going to change for me. I have some work to do. Thanks again.

Nobody (and no body) is ever perfect. Even the most gorgeous "perfect" supermodel can suffer low self-esteem. Funnily enough, finally accepting the fact that i'm overweight and that I need to lose weight actually helped me seperate my body from me. My body is overweight, but that doesn't impact on who I am. I'm me, and I'll be me, whether I put on 300kg or end up skeletal.

Does that make any sense at all? Am I dribbling s**t again?
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Unfortunatley when you are overweight nobody wants to see that there is actually a person in there that has feelings like everone else. :(

Being abused as a child I know that I have used my weight to hide behind because I didn't want anyone to find me attractive.

When you finally decide to come out of "hiding" and start loosing weight it is amazing how your much self-esteem and confidence improves. :D

Re: self-esteem

Until about 5 years ago I was between 55 and 60kg. I had a little tummy, but that was all and I always moaned about my tummy. Now that I'm 86kg I know what fat is. I wish I could get back to the 60kg. I'd be a very happy lady and would stop complaining about my fat tummy. I've now accepted that no matter how much weight I lose I'll always have it. I once got down to 48kg (i'm only 154cm tall) and still had the tummy!

With this in mind, all I want to concentrate on is getting healthy through good old unprocessed foods and exercise.

I feel that everyone has some sort of self-esteem problem. I've got a good friend who has such a good figure, but she can't stand her thighs, she's always exercising to reduce them. She doesn't have an ounce of fat anywhere else. She needs to accept that this is her and she may never lose it from there, especially considering how skinny she is.

As was mentioned before, even models have self-esteem problems. LOL.

Hi Pam,

Take a look back on your life thus far.

Note down everything that is an achievement, everything in your life you can be proud of: any awards or certificates, any great photos you've taken, a painting you've done, a meal you cooked that everyone marvelled at, kids you've helped raised (or are raising) that are happy and healthy, a good looking pet, a plant you've raised from a seedling etc.....

Take photos of what you can (ie dont rip up that fantastic plant just so you can nail it to a wall inside) and put these things in places you'll see them every day. This will remind you that you are a good person who can be proud of many things. Mind you, the day I could get even a weed to grow, I think rip it out and frame it - a green thumb I have - not!).

Strangers only see the vehicle that your soul is riding around in and unfortunately judge you on that. That's their loss and not your concern. You'd be a nervous and physical wreck if you spent all your time trying to show everyone that there's more to you than the outside they see.

YOU know the real you and congrats to making a decision to put your physical body in for an overhaul so that it will allow the real you to enjoy all the things in life that you want for a long time to come.

One of the worst scenarios of this with me is when I have tried on some gorgeous shop-dress, like the proverbial 'little black number'...and I just want to cry.
