I see all these stars on the cover of magazines what went to diet and have become skeletal. When I looked in the mirror in high school all I would see was fatness compared to them and I would hate myself, but now I'm starting to feel more comfortable in my body. It's not something overnight, it's taken 5 years to even start to like my body, but each day I accept that this is who I am and that I'm not meant to be 5'7 or 5'8 and only 100 pounds. I'm 5'6ish and 118 and I'm not going to diet and be anorexic/bulemic to fit a Hollywood ideal.
