    @SpecialSundae:

    I have my days. When I am fully clothed, and my hair is styled, then yes I am happy. Afterall, I am not in bad shape or anything.

    When I am wearing a bikini, with my hair all messed up, then no not really.

    But overall, I would say there is definitely room for improvement.

    I am! But it also requires a backstory:

    When I was in high school, I was a size eight and I hated it. I honestly thought I was obese. In college, I met supportive friends and Fiance and learned to love myself at a size 12. I lost about 20 pounds after graduating because I wasn’t eating cafeteria food, and I’m back to a size eight. I feel like I have a second shot at being this size and I’m loving it this time!

    With close that fit well, yes.

    In fluorescent lighting butt naked. NO! lol

    but that is thanks to lingerie magazines and airbrush that has me self conscious of every nook and cranny. I feel like I’m bred to believe theres always more to be doing to improve!

    I’m a healthy size 8 and proud of it. 🙂 I’ve had weight issues in the past and am happy to be physically eating normal portions and feeling good about the way I look. It took many years to get to this point though!

    I’m not miserable, but I’m not necessarily happy either. I gained about 60lbs in the timespan of about 6 months due to a combination of being on the pill and moving in with Fiance. I went from a size 6-8 to a 12-14. I’ve now been at my current weight for about a year and slowly accepting the size I am now. I’m not short (5’6″-5’7″) but I have very petite bonestructure and I know this isn’t a normal size for me. I’m not healthy at this weight. I’d like to be a healthy weight again.

    I’m happy but I’d like to lose weight.  I just feel I need to tighten it up but I’m not unhappy with how I currently look.

    Clothing sizes are weird.  When I graduated college 20+ years ago I was a perfect size 12.  I was okay with my size then.  Now, 2 kids and 20+ years later I am about 7 lbs. heavier than then and somehow I’m a size 8!  How on earth could this happen?  I’m absolutely thrilled that I am only a few pounds heavier than I was before kids but obviously clothing sizes don’t mean anything.  When I wear certain clothes I look pretty good.  Some clothes don’t look so great on my body type.  When I look in the mirror, naked or otherwise, and even with gravity doing its thing, I’m good!

    If my pants button and my Fiance is still attracted to me, I’m good! I just want to be healthy.  Every woman looks different in the same size.  I know I need to lose a few pounds, but I am by no means obese.

    I’m happy with the way I look because I know I’m healthy. To me, it doesn’t matter what weight I am, as long as I know my body is as nourished and strong as I can make it, then I’m happy!

    Now, my facial skin on the other hand…LOL. Can I get a skin transplant, please? I have acne like a teenager. Not cool.

    Yes, but it has taken a LOT of work.  Not the diet/exercise/discipline kind, but learning to treat myself well mentally and emotionally.  I used to be really obsessive about healthy eating, to the point where I wasn’t eating enough and keeping myself hungry and on a perfect diet was my life.

    Learning to love and accept myself (and others… I found I couldn’t stop judging myself if I was judging other people’s bodies, too) was MUCH, MUCH harder work than staying away from sweets or exercising every morning and requires just as much maintenance.

    I have always had body issues- for reasons stemming from how I was treated growing up to general society’s ridiculous and impossible standards.

    But now I am a curvy size 8, my husband loves it, and I am happy with that.

    Absolutely not!  I’m around a size 8 right now and out of shape and it depresses the hell out of me.  I think it’s a mental issue for me, though, because I can remember trying on clothes when I was 5’7 120 pounds and starting to cry because I thought I was fat.  I’m rolling my eyes at my past self right about now, wondering why I was such a crazy bitch.
