Well then, you are picking the wrong kind of clothing. =0)

Seriously, I can totally relate. I used to go clothing shopping and pick out all kinds of things and then leave without buying any of them. Something that helps me now is taking someone that I trust. They will tell me honestly what they like or don't. My husband really is helpful in this way...I always feel sexy when he helps me shop. Even if it's just a pair of jeans.

As long as you keep telling yourself that you hate yourself, you won't like what you see. Telling yourself that you are a work in progress and loving you for you will help you see past those things. Love sees the inside. That is the important part and once the inside is looking good, the rest will shine from the inside out.

Hi. Just being any above a 12 is hard to find. I have just started to sew again. I found some material a a yard sale so now 2 sixes bigger hope to have enough material to make a tope and a pair of slacks. That will take a LOT of material but I got to do something.

Well you gotta believe someone...why not someone who says nice things about you? That works for me.

I was looking though my wardrobe today and I need to get the sewing machine out and do some repairs so I can make what I have last and still look decent. I understand the $$ thing. I often go to Kmart when they are having the seasonal clearances. I got some cute little tanks for a couple of bucks and that always makes me feel good to have a new shirt, even if it just cost me $2. We also do the Good will. My husband has better luck than I do, I am still not a size that is easy to find there, but I will be. So I keep trying.

Often I skip the whole retail store thing. I do a lot of my shopping at thrift stores. Sometimes it can take some careful "digging" in a thrift store but I feel it is often worth the extra care. Of course you have to be careful to get only the nicest clothes with the longest life expectancy possible, but slacks for $3 and button down shirts for $2, you can't beat that unless it is for free.

I used to feel the same way. i was 303 lbs, 5'2 and 50 years old. I hated my body. Then I began to change it. People now say how great I look 85 pounds lighter, but you know I am the exact same person I was, just more self confident. I got a CD called Skinny Songs and one of them says, if you didn't want me then, you don't deserve me now. Your true beauty is within and anyone who does not see it doesn't deserve your time. Ray is absolutely right in what he said.

First of all you're looking at yourself the wrong way. Start by looking at yourself on the inside and if you like what you see there, you are taking the first step to doing something about the outside. I can't say that I am severely overweight but I could stand to lose a few pounds but that's not going to make me any happier if I am not happy inside. That's what I focus on. I would like to do something to gain hair but if I stay away from mirrors I can think of myself as a chia pet. You can work on your weight one pound at a time. It will be easier with friends including the friend that you make with yourself. If I can say or do anything to help, please "friend" me. Welcome to our community/family.
