I'm not gonna lie, I am chubby an after actually taking a photo of myself and seeing it is making me incredibly ashamed. I've seen other photos of plus sized selfies of people on this site but they always seemed to be covering themselves up or have something distracting looking to make them look "better" or hide what they actually look like without all the fancy-smancy get ups. I have no idea what this question will accomplish, it will either destroy my confidence or make me feel a tad better about my body. But I'd like to know what it is you guys think, be polite please.

I've got good news and I've got bad news.
The bad news is that it doesn't look very good (It doesn't look very bad either). The good news is that you can wear fat well and be much sexier.
To wear it well you need to build up a large musculature. I mean not he-man bulges or anything, just get it to where it's noticeable. That will change the shape of your body, some of your fat will be burned but most will not, and what's left will spread out subtly.
It's either that or just a little bit of resistance training and a BOAT LOAD of cardio and going after the fat. But that's very tedious and tends to come back later unless you do a lifestyle overhaul.
You can get started with squats and push-ups, if you don't have access to equipment. Push-ups exercise a LOT of muscles from head to toe, including your core.
As for your confidence, take this for what it's worth:
If you campaigned me the way men campaign women, you could smash on this, the way you are now. Probably on day one if you were pushy.0
