I can't tell if it's just my body dysmorphia, or if I actually just look heavier for my weight to height ratio. I am 20, 5'5, and fluctuate between 115-118 lbs. I keep seeing girls on social media that seem so pretty and skinny, so it makes me feel increasingly self conscious. Anyone have tips on how to feel less self conscious about how you look? I need to get out of the habit of body checking as well.
I keep getting more and more self-conscious. I recently lost a few pounds and I don't know why. I don't think I ate any less then I had been prior. I am afraid to gain it back now because I feel like I look chubby. I'm 5'5 and 113, but I am normally 118. I feel good knowing that I lost some weight, but I know I shouldn't be. Any tips on how not to be anxious about my weight going back? I used to have an eating disorder from age 12-18, so I am afraid of falling back into old habits.
