Hello I have some interesting questions I would like to present with you guys.
Since I am 16 my looks are everything, and they also have been an obsession of mine ever since I found out I was ugly 6 years ago. I work out alot but still can't get the muscle that 1/2 or more of the population has naturally. (men)
and can't get rid of that fat, no matter how I eat, I have been doing this for about a year to a year and a half. (with break periods)


For the first nine and a half years of my life I was skinny, then I got fat. With little to know muscle gain, yes I was eating alot and all the wrong kind of foods. But then around age 13-14 went on a diet, got "skinny" didn't lose the fat, lost all muscle though. I was 5'6 - 5'7 130-135 lbs and around 18-19% body fat. YAY! anyways there were people that were skinnier and wieghed more but the difference was they had MUSCLE! Also I have an incredibly low tolerance to cardio... ughh.

So anyways. I started to lift weights instead of just running and cardio etc. and eat better w/ more protein. so I look a little beefier, but thats because mostly I just bulked up my muscle with the fat on but still not even that strong. I dunno. but still with some fat, I was looking better and stuff but still in order to just get to a "wee" bit above normal I had to work out exponentially harder than my peers.

cool huh?



But I am aboslutley fed up with it so here are my symptoms, some doctors say its normal I might have to disagree. any ways symptoms are:

*abnormally small fingers, toes, hands(yes and that means the other thing too)
*small wrists
*low muscle tone, especially abs(well everywhere else too)
*gain fat

*WIDE hips or waist bones whatever
*small arms, forearms underside
*hardally any vascularity
*weak chin and jaw line

*haven't grown in a year and a half, since 9/2005
*white skin
*and an extra wrinkly face
*small face
*the outer half of my eyebrows are like half gone

attractive huh ladies? yah I am so sad. I dunno if I looked normal. wow. that would be the best! normal people should stop complaining. They have their looks and their health. thats all they need the rest should just be up to their intelligence and their imagiation and their set for life

I am perceived as normal just with *****y genes and ugly, so I get hardly any respect. looks is EVERYTHING especially where I live , gawd

anyways srry to be such a poorsport I am just tired of trying to make gold out of crap.

thanks for the help I guess I just finally broke down. :)

  • Its so sad to read your story you seem to have really low self esteem which is not uncommon in some one your age hormones raging and all. All teenagers feel this way even the so called good looking ones i have a 15 year old daughter who is really beautiful but she doesnt think so she thinks shes fat and will not reveal any part of her body to anyone she is so stressed that she is losing her hair which is dsperate for a teenage girl. I dont know if this helps but i just want you to know that you are not alone in feeling this way you seem to be doing all the right things and i bet you dont look half as bad as you think you must learn to see the beauty in yourself you seem to have a great personality and a good sense of humour let this work for you and be confident we women love that you know. to hear my daughter talk you would think she was a troll but she is incredibly beautiful and we tell har all the time but she wont believe it i guess its the same for you. hope this makes you feel better.

  • look up Ehlers Danlos syndrome...the wrinkly skin is indicative of it and it would explain some of your complaints - not a huge deal, but maybe an answer

  • Please don't feel like you are ugly, I'm sure you are very cute. Have you had your testoterone levels checked, it almost sounds like you have too much estrogen. Also have your thyroid checked. Sometimes when people lose their eyebrowns on the outside part their thyroid isn't funtioning properly.I know I can tell you this being 33, when I was 16 I too thought I was super ugly, too heavy, hair not long enough, not tall enough and so on. As we age we being to love ourselves more and our bodies do change for the better. I'm sure in a few years you are going to be super handsome!! I hope you can feel better soon! Stacy
