pretty new to this site so I don't know if this has already been discussed somewhere, so:

anyone else on here who has been overweight/chubby and are now underweight? And if so, what struggles do you find yourselves grappling with as a result?
I had been an overweight child and then a very chubby teenager, then was at a lower normal weight for 3 years and now for abt 1 year underweight. And apart from the mental struggles (like never really believing people when they say you look skinny or always thinking you look fat) I also find myself being super annoyed with the loose skin. It's not an excessive amount but definitely enough to get me annoyed at my reflection.

Anyone else on here who has to deal with that or other things that don't seem to go away that easily?
Hope you all have a nice day!!

Though I’ve never been overweight, my face has always been naturally cheeky. Basically, when I smile, my cheeks would make me look like I’ve gained 20pounds. With that, I’ve been shamed for looking chubby-even though I’m not bodily large. On the other hand, when people look at my body, they tell me I’m skinny.

I don’t know what I am. What I have learned is that people are toxic and should honestly shut their mouths. Because of them, it’s going to be to difficult, but love yourself as YOU AND ONLY YOU.
