Thanks for your very honest post.
I can understand how seeing other girls with what you see has having perfect bodies, would make you feel insecure.
Those girls probably are dissatisfied with their so called perfect bodies.
The sad thng is that I am much older than 16 and I don’t know many women of any age that like their bodies . I find this very sad.
I am pleased you are not influenced or pressured by social media.
bodies come in all shapes and sizes and if your bmi is ok and you are healthy then that is good.
I can see that because of weight gain you hae seen changes in your body you don’t like.
I did not like my body at 16 and now looking at photos of mysself then I think I look quite healthy and I wish I could tell my 16 year old self to like my body and not worry.
I do know it is not easy when you have put on weight.
I am wondering if there are parts of your body you do like. ? Maybe you have nice feet or strong legs , just think one thing you like .
Thanks for writing this honest and relatable post.
