Hello everyone I am new to the group. I am here because I have horrible negative body image - have my whole life. My brothers (I have 4) and my father tormented me about my weight all through my childhood which lead to anorexia as a teen and now obesity as an adult. I have only just this year begun to do something about it . I have been exercising and eating right and have lost 25 lbs in 3 months. I have a very supportive boyfriend. He loves me no matter what size I am and helps me lose if that's what I chose to do. But I am constantly beating myself up over my ugly body. If he compliments an actress I get hurt and think he wishes I looked like her though he says he doesn't. We watch a lot of movies and I am always comparing myself to those beautiful women and it makes me ill to look at myself after. I used to be so beautiful when I was anorexic I sometimes wonder if I should go back to that though I know that was wrong. I feel I am in constant battle with my body image. Anyway, thank you for this group.

That the...
