Have an opinion?
I've definitely gained a lot of self esteem from putting on muscle as of late.When I was in a bad relationship a year ago, I lost a load of weight. Being of a slim, athletic build naturally meant that the loss in weight made me seriously sick. My self esteem was already in tatters from the way I was being treated, but to lose so much weight on top of it just felt awful.Not to play my violin, but I believe that people aren't very sympathetic or understanding when it comes to underweight people and the struggles that come with trying to regain the weight. Having a crazy fast metabolism, I've never been able to get above 4% body fat, even with a diet of 4X burger kings/mcdonalds/takeout every day for 2 months and it meant that I felt really insecure about being underweight. People dont really hold back about jokes about your weight as long as you're skinny and I did receive a lot of comments by people back then which would bring a tear to my eye at the time.
Back in my late teens/early twenties I played hockey and was in way better shape because of that. A back injury has only allowed me to spend a total of two or three weeks in the gym over the last five years or so. That injury has also limited movement. So, I've ballooned, and I'm probably the least confident I've ever been. I also don't know if that will change anytime soon, so I just do what I can and have been trying to limit my caloric intake.
I have definitely lost most of my self esteem (if I ever had it) when I gained like 2kg... my mom started teasing me about my thighs and I got self conscious about them whenever I wore shorts. 2kg isn’t even a lot... sigh
Yess when I gain weight
It hasn't bothered my self-esteem, just my budget for new pants.
Yeah same. I used to be hot then I got fat. Life happens. I’m still losing weight though so that’s good.
Of course I’m not happy about gaining weight, but it’s something I choose to live with until I decide to get in shape. It doesn’t bother me too much.
Yes , i loss self esteem but i learned to gain it back by goingafter the people who drove my self esteem down.
I don't remember ever having high self-esteem but putting on weight certainly hasn't helped.
Aiming for a 30' waistline (dropped from 38, currently at 33) and it has boosted my self esteem.
*33 my autocorrect is a pain.
Also- just discovered my device can do emojis.
I have gained some weight recently but I just remember to eat healthy and exercise
Well i am rather embarrassed sometimes since i am a skinny guy also not that tall, so sometimes people think i am kid :-(
I had the same problem when I was young. I had to change my clothing to look a bit older. It will serve you when you are older because people will think you are younger than your ge.
Yes a lot if self esteem. Because u did gain weight.
I get really sad if I gain weight.
Aging does a number on my head on and off.
But aging we can't do anything about weight we can.
Na myself confidence is still the same.
It’s certainly not helping. :/
I can eat much but I can't gain weight so I'm skin
