I did a minimalist search and found nothing. I know it's probably been done before, but seeing how this is the internet, I can't see a reason not to have another one.

Let's face it, I'm fat as hell. 5'11, 245lbs. Normally I don't give a damn, but with the school year circling back around it's gotten me thinking about my self image.

When I was a freshman I was fat as hell (there seems to be a pattern). I remember being a freshman and saying, "Doesn't matter now, I'm gonna lose a lot of the weight with age and be normal when I'm older."

Well, it seems like I got older and the fat followed me. I had expectations of myself and I let myself down. I was the fat kid in elementary school, I was the fat kid in middle school, I was the fat kid when I was a freshman, and now I'm gonna be the fat kid as a junior.

It feels like I'll be the fat kid forever.

I've recently been biking a lot and I've quit drinking sodas, but it hasn't done anything yet. I just feel like crap about the way I look, and it really doesn't help me socially, or in any way for that matter.

Anyone else feel like shit about themselves? Anyone know how to deal with it?

I have HORRIBLE acne. For the second time. I had it before, and it went away last school year. And now it's back in full swing again for the new school year. I'm back on the medication I was on to get rid of it the first time, but last time it took four months. I'm sick of it.
ok, yeah. my name is silly because I signed up when I was 13.

What medication did you use that took 4 months? >_>.

In any case, TS.. just try doing some exercising. I started playing soccer (I actually quit recently), skating, and just going out more and I became less fat .

i was thinking about bein a douche but i wont

if you realy feel that bad about how you look then change it

theres no rule that you have to be fat

i would say play a sport while goin on a diet
ur coaches will give u motivation and the diet will help u loose wieght

but it wont just happen overnight you gotta work at it

and as for low self esteem its hard to not care what ppl think but if theyre not assholes it wont matter

good luck man

Yeah, it does blow pretty hard. I've pretty much given up on any chance of finding a girlfriend or loosing my virginity in high school.

Yeah, hypothyroidism can be the cause. They checked me for that when I was 13. Wasn't it. I did get a laugh out of it though. The asian doctor came out and said with the most outrageous accent: "We testa your thyroid...You no have thyroid problem...you just plain fat!"

My mom was PISSED, but I thought it was hilarious, so she let it go.

Holy **** do I ever sympathize with you TS. When I was in high school, I was the same way. I hated life! I hated going to school, it was so hard.

Now, 23 years old. I just finally kinda got used to being the big man. It actually helps me in social situations now, I'm kinda like the Chris Farley of all of my social groups, like friends, family, work, whatever. But holy **** was high school hard.

One day, you'll just find a way to accept yourself. For me, it was a combination of finding a job I am really good at 3 years ago, and finding a woman who accepted me for me. I still work at the job, broke up with the woman after 2 years. But she and the job really just got me comfortable with me and my looks, my skills, my everything. Don't give up man. Just take everything life gives you and use it to your advantage.

Same goes for all of you. The trend in this thread is youth. You will accept yourself one day. You aren't even living life yet, as sad as it seems. You think you have so much going on. Just wait. When real life begins, you will be guided in to accepting yourself and you'll be happy. Those that don't... they make medications for that I guess.

Try Differin .01% (if it's really bad, up it to .03%) every night. Use Neutrogena Oil-Free Acne Wash morning and night, and also use Noxema at night.

Worked for me, in 2-3 months.

Man, that ****'s brutal. My friend was on it for a while. My acne was bad, not bad enough for that. I just have to take antibiotics.

My self-esteem used to be REALLY low. It started when a gf I had dumped me cause I couldn't make out. That pretty much destroyed my self-esteem within itself, and it didn't help that she was cheating on me with 8 (literally) other guys. I was pretty bad for a long time. So bad, that for the first 6 months with my current gf, I was completely paranoid that I was doing everything wrong (even though I wasn't). But I finally realized that if she was going to dump me, it was going to be for my constant whining and bitching. And plus, my gf was a huge help. She made it a personal mission to "fix me" as she put it. Luckily she was very patient and was able to deal with me for that long. As of today, we're still together and will be celebrating 7 months on August 14th.

Sorry, didn't mean to spill my guts there. My point is TS, that if you (at the risk of keeping up the broken record of advice) if you keep on with diet and excercise, eventually you'll get somewhere. Or you could have some sort of revealation. Or find someone who could help you out of the pit you're in. It will get better if you just keep trying. Don't give up.

Dude, I feel your pain. I've ****ed up my last 3 relationships. What you need to do is not date anyone (hard though it may be) until you find someone you really like and connect with. That's what I did and it's worked great. Just don't steal them from your best friend. I made that mistake on accident. He got really pissed at me and now he doesn't talk to me. It's not my fault that my gf moved on to me!

At the moment I cannot trust anyone. All of my "friends" have betrayed me and broken my trust. I initially thought that it was my fault.
But no, they are just all dickheads and lack sensitivity and have no idea about privacy.
They are losing me, I'm not losing anything.

All my problems are caused by me being 100% honest about myself and others. I always leave myself open and all people do is take. I help people I always get hurt from their mistakes.

Everyone in here that has low self-esteem, so do I sometimes. I guess the only advice is that you need to keep at it and stuff fixes up and if stuff does go wrong its not always your fault.

^^^ to the guy above me. I just did the same thing as you by accident. I am going out with a girl and I didn't know my friend liked her, now he won't let me open my mouth without him insulting me.

My life is slowly turning around to bite me in the ass. Everytime I help someone, it backfires. I get bit in the ass because of THEIR mistakes, not mine, theirs. I have acne on my face that's rediculous. NOTHING gets rid of that ****. I'm fat, not too fat as to where I cant put off that I'm muscular (I do have muscle, just a layer of fat covering that ****) but even still, I've been told I'm cute by girls, that I'm the both the funniest and nicest guy they know, but I've never had a girlfriend. And the closest friend I've ever had is moving in a week. My life ****ing sucks.

I honestly dont know why all of this has to happen to me, but I really dont care, I've learned to deal with it myself, I dont need or want help...

EDIT: And to stay on topic, anytime I start feeling like ****, I just start playing guitar with my amp up on a high volume. Music is really a cathartic for me, just playing guitar for a while can eventually get me into a state of mind where I don't really care about anything at all. It feels like there is nothing, outside of the room I'm in jamming, there is absolutely nothing. For the time I'm playing nothing else exsists. It's weird...but it can help me out.
