ok so i started seriously working out like two days ago after like trying for a week and then going three without doing anything, and i'm starting to notice new stretch marks and i'm v sad. plus my uncle joked about the backs of my thighs and my butt from the time we went to the beach and he said something about how it looked like "three dogs fighting for some food" when i was walking away, and i seriously sat on the floor and wanted to cry. i'm not sure why i'm typing this out but i'm v upset🙃
(pt.2, same anon w the uncle and stretch marks) but at the same time my body shape is weird, like my friends make me feel bad for saying that i feel self conscious because they say i’m too skinny to be, but i’m really not the thinnest and idk this is my only place to turn i’m sorry ;-;
you know what, everyone has stretch marks, and your uncle sounds like a douchebag
you’re allowed to feel self-conscious, but please do not feel like you’re not normal. stretch marks, ‘weird’ body shapes - no matter your size - it’s just a part of being who you are.
make sure to take it steady where it comes to working out - don’t push too hard too fast or you’ll get discouraged
you’re beautiful, and i love you a lot
