I typically don't respond to 'how do I look' posts, because, as you said, a lot of them just fish for compliments, but I can see from the pictures, and based on this 'magazine' culture we live in, why you might feel self-conscious.
The current portrayal of what men want in a female is so false - more false than many other things being said about male appreciation of the female counterpart.
Most men (literally most) would prefer a body-type like yours (wide hips, big thighs, slightly-pooched stomach, big butt) over nearly any other body type. Why? Because we're genetically pre-disposed to 'nest' with women that are fit enough to care for the child while we are away, but still woman enough to handle the man.
In fact, if/when you get to college, take Humanities class immediately so that you can see for yourself that the woman with a large stature and some 'padding' has been the body-type of choice for centuries, and it still is today.
Look at the paintings from the Renaissance era and you will CLEARLY see which body type was held in reverence above others.
In all honesty, you have one of the sexiest bodies I've seen in quite some time. Seriously - those thighs make my lizard brain go 'animalistic'. You are a stunning display of female beauty.
You have absolutely nothing to be concerned about and you should strut that stuff like a lioness looking for her lion king.
Okay, I'm done now. I hope this helps! :)4
