As many of you have pointed out to me, I have body image issues. When I look in the mirror I see twenty extra pounds.
I take diet pills, I fast, I throw up, I exercise.
And yet I still hate my body.
My hips are huge my thighs are thick my butt isn't toned enough. I'm on the verge of just stopping eating all together but I decided before I do that I would try one more avenue...
I want to love my body, so my question is for anyone who has body issues: How do you love your body? How can you change your perspective on what you see in the mirror?
I'm 5'7ft and 135lbs
What I'm asking is how to fix it?

Your self image comes from your own perspective. You have to love yourself. Ask yourself this; Would would you Not love yourself/your body? Do you feel as though your a good person? There has to be some conflict there, and only you, yourself have an answer. I Have been there and it was more about my attitude and perspective than my actual body, but at a time I did not like the person I was.
I can only speak through my very own perspective, because it is the only one I see. I feel that I life a worth while life, support my family and friends and do what I think is right. I think that I have a lot to offer to someone. I love myself, I don't feel egotistical saying so.
Anyone can validate that you are a physically beautiful, Although with a negative attitude, It won't change a thing. Because you don't believe it yourself. There are super models with that problem. Its 100% mental. If you want to change it, its simple. Be a positive person in all aspects of your life. Do the right thing as small as it may be and be true to yourself. I know you may think that is a general answer, but its that simple. By doing something like helping a charity, helping a stranger, just being a helpful individual to mankind is something to be proud of and emulate. Smile whenever you can, take little steps until the little changes become one big change. I hope that helps.2
