    I voted other. My biggest insecurity is my small chest. I didn’t think that fit in with the other choices. I have tried to accept it for years but it is something I think about on a daily basis. I can’t help but be completely jealous of women who are my size except with a bigger chest.

    I voted “other” – I would say I’m most self conscious about my nose, because it has a bump on the top – you only really tell when you’re looking at my face from the side.

    Eh, weight. I gained ~60lbs (possibly more at this point) due to medication in less than 6 months and I haven’t been able to get rid of it. I feel like me in a fat suit.

    Had you asked before the wiehgt gain I probably would have said my nose and/or my teeth. I don’t like the profile of my nose and my teeth have shifted a bit because I didn’t wear my retainer.

    What an interesting question. I actually had to think about it, and feel really lucky that I wouldn’t count any of these as insecurities for me now. I weigh more than I’d to by about 12 pounds, but only feel insecure about that when I wear a swim suit (which thankfully isn’t often in winter!). I used to be really self-concious of my teeth and hair, but braces and years of practicing on my hair have really helped me feel comfortable with both those categories.

    I’m actually more insecure about sounding stupid when I make small talk. Is that strange? I just feel like I sound dumb a lot of the time! I don’t mind having actual conversations at all, but doing that piddly “talk about something irrelevent to be friendly” just makes me feel awkward. I wish I was better at it!

    Hm biggest insecurity is my chest – it’s uneven. One side is a C cup the other is an A.

    It bothers me, a lot. Boyfriend or Best Friend says he only notices because I point it out but he doesn’t mind and thinks I’m beautiful anyways. BUT it bothers me and that’s what matters. I’m uncomfortable in bras (can’t fit in As, more comfortable in Bs, gaping on one side in Cs)

    Other than that my skin more than my weight but it’s been clearing up since I switched BCPs!

    @KatyLovesJoey:  so i was sitting on the couch last night with my husband and we were talking about surgerys which led to me having to get my wisdom teeth taken out and my refusal to do so. This conversation led to genetics and how our poor children will most likely need braces. He had braces an expanders for 6 years (his teeth are really nice now) and i never had braces (my parents never wanted to spend the money) and while my teeth are crazy crooked or anything i def have some issues there that i’m self concious about. i have one top tooth that goes behind the bottom tooth (one of my k9s so you dont really notice too much when i smile) and he was making fun of me to the point i had my hand over my mouth so he couldnt see – he kept trying to see and i kept laughing so i had to keep covering it. eventually he gave up and left the room but it made me realize how insecure i really am about my teeth.

    My nose, haha! It’s hard to miss! I think I broke it when I fell on my face as a kid or something, I’m not sure, but it’s definitely got a crook in it.

    I love my body in general, my 30E boobs, my muscular arms and legs, all 120 pounds of me. I’ve really grown to love myself more as I’ve changed my lifestyle, started feeding myself good foods, and began working out regularly.

    It’s not something I would ever pay to change about myself or “get fixed,” but that darn lumpy nose is still a sore spot for my vanity. That and my crazy vampire canine teeth are really my only physical insecurities.

    I have had a myriad of skin problems my entire life. cystic acne, adult acne, rosacea, major eczema, hives, extreme paleness (I sunburn super easily), sun allergies, freckles (I used to hate them but not anymore), heat rashes, OMG the list goes on and on. oh, and now I am beginning to get my first wrinkles.  I should just live in a cave.

    my skin looks healthy and good right so I’m not self conscious about it right now. in fact, people tell me I have beautiful skin, but that’s due to the tons of work I put into it, and it is EXPENSIVE.  with my luck I’m sure more problems will arise. I wish I could get healthy problem free skin!

    @chancehere:  yes, when I saw this thread I was thinking personality, not looks. I am the most self-conscious about whether or not I am an interesting person.

    It’s interesting how with most women it’s weight/body image. I definitely am not the weight I want to be, but I’ve never beat myself up about it. I always just accepted that this is the body I have.

    I voted “other” though because I have a big insecurity: my ears.

    It sounds funny, but I cried about them so much growing up. They are really big and they stick out. I got called “Alfalfa” when I was little. I definitely grew into them a little bit, but they still stick out and look ridiculous. I hate them so much. I refuse to ever wear my hair in a ponytail or style that will show my ears. I will never cut my hair short, if I have to have my hair in a ponytail for working out or whatever, then I tuck my ears behind a few strands. I’m sure i always look pathetic but to me, it’s better than people noticing my “alfalfa” ears 🙁

    @janie-janie 

    I worry about not being interesting too, but I feel like that’s something I have some control over.  If I stay current on topics that are interesting to discuss, give consideration to forming opinions, and engage in the world around me as much as possible, then I’m doing everything I can to be a “personal of interest.”

    I think it’s the physical things that make many of us feel so out of control.

    Weight/shape – I’m not overweight, actually, but all the weight I do have seems to be in my ass and thunder thighs but none up top. Sigh. Plus I’m very tall, so thick legs are noticeable.

    Luckily, I typically don’t think about it too much – my husband is an ass man, thank goodness 🙂

    My weight is definitely my biggest insecurity. I’m a size 18/20 and most of the time I’m fine with myself but sometimes if I’m having a “fat” day or am wearing something unflattering I get really insecure.

    @KatyLovesJoey:Wow! I could have wrote that exact same post myself a few months back! I’ve always had crooked teeth and always felt that’s all people saw when they looked at me.  I decided to take the plung and get braces (also with the support of my FI). Now my teeth are pretty much straight! I’m just waititng for the day they come off so I too can smile at every person I come into contact with! I am beyond excited to finally take pictures and not be self consious about it! I can’t wait for my wedding to be able to finally have a beautiful perfect smile! Now if only I could redo my engagement pictures ha.

    I’m sooo excited for you! You are gonna love it! And your gonna be so beautiful with a perfect smile to match! Good luck!
