Welcome to the FAT-FREE Zone!


I know it is hard not to criticize your own body. Believe me! But we are committed here not to talk badly about ourselves, how we look. For that reason, please don't write in calling yourself fat or ugly. We don't want to print those comments. Everyone has times like that, but we think that it makes things worse, not better, when you to talk yourself down.

Can you think of one or two things you like about yourself or how you look? I can - I'm funny and I have nice hair. Try it. Some people will feel uncomfortable like you're bragging. But REALLY, if you don't like you, who will like you?!

If you've never seen the videos our friend Emily-Anne posts over at her YouTube channel, We Stop Hate, now is great time to view them. I also like this quote that Emily-Anne had on her Facebook site today. It's good to remember to be kind to yourself, too!

Be kind right now and say something nice about yourself. If you feel too funny doing it, have a friend say something nice about you and you say something nice about her.

Think pink!
Jemma

This is a random song I made up this moment: It

When you are feeling down, and you are feeling blue, just say these words, and you will will be glad you do!

Words:
"I love me, I love the world, I love me, I love the world!"

A few years ago I used to stand in front of a mirror and pick out the flaws
Ridiculous I know. But now I've grown up so I can actually say yeh I am pretty yeh I am clever
It's good to be proud of yourself girls there's no point living your life changing who you are
So don't pick out the bad thinks make noted of the good things and believe me your on the track of sucsess

I used to pick out my flaws too! I still do sometimes but hardly ever! Its hard to live in a world where the "Perfect Girl" is flawless and fake. I'm going into grade 7 next in like 3 months and I have to learn to be condifent to be me. So should everyone else! Pick out atleast one good feature, (for example: Great hair, White teeth, Good fashion sense, Clear skin, being kind-hearted) You will feel more confiednt in no time!

I have insecurities. Everyone does. But I made a promise to myself one day that I would spend the whole week not looking in the mirror or saying something bad about myself. I failed the first time but the next week, I did it! I didn't say one bad thing about my appeearance or personality and didn't stop and look at flaws in the mirror once. Give it a try! It will totally boost your confidence! <3 Emma

There is no such thing as a "perfect girl" if there is, than they're fake.

I think I look better when I smile. I am perfectly imperfect. If someone was perfect, would they be smart? Or is smart considered nerdy? Therefore, there is no such thing as perfect, it is totally opinionated.

I'm a gymnast too! But I'm only 4'11 and a half. It's not that I haven't grown, though. I have more of my mom's genes and she's only 5'3 and a half.

@Kendo Hahaaa I see another Onedirectionfreak! It's good to know that our boys are getting more attention. I love one direction. I want to be best friends with Harry, eat Extra Special Special K with Louis, got to Nandos with Niall, play guitar with Liam and sing with Zayn! Actually I would like to sing with all of them :) As for the insecurity, I have to admit I'm a little on the fat side, but i completely ignore the fact and focus on my great features! My eyes, clear skin, singing and playing piano are my talents! And That's What Makes Me Beautiful! :P

I think that I have a beautiful body and nice hair and I am a great friend. I am also funny and have my own sense of humor and am a good writer. I think my eyes are pretty and my lips are too. I don't want to be anyone else because I love being me and you should too!

Hey there!<3 As Jemma said: There is absolutely no point calling yourself ugly!!! For all you girls who are on diets, NEVER EVER go into eating disorders! Doing these things just harm you more and more: Physically & Emotionallly:(
I want everyone who is reading this to wake up in the morning and say:" I am beautiful, no matter what you say; I'll trust in myself, anyway!!"
I've done it! Have you? Trust me, it brings up your self-confidence and self-esteem!

Hugs*
