After living my childhood as an overweight kid, I've finally reached a healthy weight. I'm 5'1 and weigh around 120. Some call me tiny, but I still see myself as large. I typically wear an XS, sometimes a small, and a 2 or 4 in pants. I do exercise (ballet mainly) and tend to eat okay. I think the issues I have with myself is that my legs are larger than I would like. It's due to genes so I can't control but it still bothers me. Even still, I have issues with every piece of my body. I have become more accepting of myself, but the insecurities are still there. I frequently find myself talking down about my body. Do I learn to accept myself as is, or continue making improvements?

I'd like to say, it's honestly up to you. No one should tell you whether or not to accept who you are or tell you to keep changing your flaws. Hating parts of yourself that can't be fixed is a nasty and hard habit to deal with, believe me I know. I as well was 160lbs (5'6) and I got made fun of a lot. I decided to lose weight and now I down to 125lb, I may still be unhappy with parts of myself but I've come to realize that I'm beautiful and it's not because I ask people if I am or wait for approval from other people but it's because I am who I am. Be proud of what you've been given because I assure you that there's probably about a million girls who wish they were you.2
