I Hate My Body Because of Stretch Marks and Loose Skin

Since I was a young teen my weight has fluctuated dramatically. To be honest, I didn’t care about myself nor did I take care of my body.

I’m so much healthier and I’m quite proud of myself except well … even though I’ve had a dramatic weight loss, my body is far...

I of course am not really believing in that sort of ridiculous comment, so I try to...

Also, I’m genuinely overweight so afraid to discuss this with my psychiatrist in case he...
