    Body Image

    Often I'll compare myself to skinny women I see and actresses. I think I wish I could look like them. I admire how clothes look on them. I have water weight and fat is stubborn thanks to medication. My husband tells me I'm lovely every day, so sometimes I wonder if I worry too much about it...
