Body Shaming is people's opinion and their outlook on how one must look like and you should not react to it. Rather respond in a more regulated way making them realise you are proud of who you are as a person inside out. And to come into that state of mind, where you don't get affected by people's judgements, you need to start working on yourself through healing and self work and also understand that the shame people are giving you is not yours. It's totally external. It's for their own pleasure and you don't need to take it to your mind. Hope this helps. You can check my recent post where I have shared exactly about shame and how i got past that. ๐Ÿ˜Š

hey Anonymous. one needs to be physically fit, not to please anyone but for urself. Being overweight should not be the reason for your insecurities . You need to accept yourself first only then others will accept you if you feel you are loosing urself trying to fit in... ask yourself what is it that you are doing that's creating discomfort within you ... identify and work on it.. good luck ๐Ÿ‘
Hello Thank you for sharing and you don't have to be sorry for anything. This is a safe and non- judgemtal space for you. I can understand moving to a new city comes with lot of adjustment issues and it's hard. I wil suggest talk to our mental health professionals on their live sessions so that you can talk about it more and will get the help you require

I'm very flat chested as well as underweight. I'm very insecure about my breast. I stuff pads in my bra just to look a little bit appealing. But, once my classmate asked me that "how come you became 28B from 26A?" This shattered my confidence and ruined my mental peace. What should I do guys?
Anonymousใƒป-5d
I myself suffered from this before! All the ladies in my family taunted me again and again on how clothes doesnt look good on me coz I dont have a fat ass and good breasts. It actually shattered me a lot but now I just ignore them. Ik I am better than them and thats enough
Hi there, I hope you are well. Your bra or breast size doesn't define you :) you may be genetically inclined to having smaller breast size which is absolutely okay. Just embrace it. - Also, try to gain weight in a healthy manner if you feel that you are underweight. - Include enough protein, nuts, seeds, dates, ghee, lean meat, eggs, millets, dairy and dairy products for healthy weight gain. - If you are looking for some advice on gaining weight, then you can book a one-one consultation with me. I shall be happy to guide you :) - Also, surround yourself with people who support you, encourage you, love you, respect you for who you are, and like you the way you are. Find support groups, and seek professional help if needed. Take care and stay positive โœจ you are worth it !

I'm a chubby girl. and I've always been proud of it. But I can't seem to accept my arms and it's folds as it is. One time I wore a gorgeous sleeveless outfits and got so many compliments but some also said, that I've got really big arms. It really affected my self esteem. How do I deal with this???? @Intelligent_Rocket_0277

Practice self-love and self-acceptance by repeating positive affirmations about yourself. Focus on your strengths and the aspects of your body that you appreciate.

Ugh, lately family gatherings have been rough. Backhanded comments about my weight or appearance leave me feeling awful. How do you handle unwanted body talk from people who should be supportive? Feeling self-conscious and need tips for shutting down negativity and building confidence.
Anonymousใƒป11d
1. Shutting down comments is by accepting yourself & making humour out of it. They want a reaction but not if you handle it in a positive-funny way. 2. It's affecting your mental health then make changes in your routine and build healthy habits 2. eating high protien and lower carb diet (vegetarian cheapest option is kali masoor, soya chunks, moong badi, wheat gluten=chakki sag in rajasthan) & peanuts and eating 1 roti less & triple amt of protien) increase seasonal fruits for sweet tooth. 3. just join cheapest gym use 30 min treadmill on highest incline and walk on speed 4, take breaks when tired and atleast complete 8000 steps in step count. Progress will show in gluten, thighs, hamstrings, core in 10 days. Then with "strong core" try new HIIT, cardio & strength training like push up & weights. You'll thank me later for this tip. 4. For permanent shutting down comments by relatives best way is to transform your body for better and good. It hurts but also a reminder to become better.

I have been trying to accept my big thighs and not compare them to others, but my mom constantly keeps reminding me that I should reduce my thighs and go to the gym. How can I deal with these type of comments, because I really donโ€™t want thek to demoralize me.
Hello, I am Krisha Sanghvi a counselling psychologist! It's tough when those close to us make comments that impact our self-esteem. Remember, your worth is not defined by the size of your thighs. You can calmly explain to your mom how her comments affect you and set boundaries around body talk. Focusing on positive affirmations and surrounding yourself with supportive people can also help. If you would like to talk more on it and bring some emotional wellbeing, join my live session.

Body positivity is an empowering movement advocating for the acceptance of all bodies, regardless of societal or media ideals. This concept is particularly important for women, who often face intense pressure to conform to specific beauty standards. Women's body positivity is about embracing and celebrating the diversity of female bodies in all their different sizes, shapes, colors, and ages. It is about recognizing that all bodies are beautiful and worthy, and rejecting the idea that a woman's value is tied to her appearance. This movement aims to help women cultivate a positive relationship with their bodies, encouraging self-love, self-acceptance, and self-care. It promotes the idea that everyone deserves to feel comfortable and confident in their own skin, and that respect and inclusivity should be the norm. Body positivity inspires women to focus on their capabilities, strengths, and character, rather than their appearance. It sends a powerful message that beauty is not a one-size-fits-all concept, and encourages society to redefine its perception of what it means to be beautiful. In essence, women's body positivity is a celebration of women in their most authentic form, advocating for self-love, acceptance, and a healthier perspective on the female body.more
