I am really insecure about my body escpically in the summer, im not thin but I'm not fat. I have tried working out but it never helps. I hate going to the beach or even swimming with people that aren't close girl friends. I really wish I could go to the beach and swim with guy friends knowing that they don't think of me being fat. Whenever I go to the beach all I see is skinny girls in bikinis, and I am not looking for a guy but it makes me feel bad when guys see really pretty girls and then look at me because I know they don't think of me the same way. I always wear swim suits that cover my stomach and my legs but I still feel insecure, do you have any tips to think better of myself?

Hey babe,

There must be a reason your workouts weren't giving you the results you wanted.  You have to give your body time to show the change.  However, for that to happen, you must be eating well too. 

As far as feeling better about yourself, it's all about what you want to do for yourself.  If you want to lost weight for boys and not for yourself and to be healthier, the weight will cling to you like no other.

You need to adjust your reasons.

The best way to do that, I think, is to make over your mind first.  Find all of those qualities that you love in yourself and point one out everyday when you look at yourself in the morning.  Acknowledge everything good that you already have and it will be so much easier to make it even better.

After all, is it easier to finish a sculpture when you think that it's still a pile of clay?  Or is it easier when you think it's an amazing creation that only needs a few edits here and there?

im not allowed to wear short shorts; how do i convince my parents to let me wear a bikini? im 13.

Hey Girl!

Don't approach them by saying "but all my friends wear them!!". They'll think you only want to wear one to follow the crowd. Explain to them why you think you're mature enough to sport a two piece. Assure them you won't be in anything that shows too much skin. Why not go shopping together? You can get something both you and your 'rents are comfortable with.

So i didn't have stretch marks, but now Ive started running and working out a lot since i joined my school's track team and i have them on the inside of my thighs. Is it possible that me losing weight could be the cause? my mom says its just from me growing but i dont think so.

whenever I click enter on the quizzes it just loads but then doesn't do anything

Hey girl,

We're sorry for the technical difficulty going on with some of our quizzes, it should be fixed soon!

alot of girls i have the question: what exactly are strech marks? well, it is juts when the skin streches. if your pregnant, the skin streches to cover the bigger belly. most girls who have boobs have them there too. the skin streches over to cover it all. if your overweight,,u probably have them on ur belly too.

do stretch marks mean you have or are expecting a baby?

Hey girl,

You can get stretch marks from pregnancy, but you can also just get them from gaining weight.

Um don't mean to bother you with this but when you said *white* scar-like scratches on your skin it kinda offended my friend and she's Hispanic and well the scar-like scratches on her skin aren't white. We both lOVE reading GL but could you please be more careful on how you word things?

MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD how do you get rid of puberty marks? they're like stretch marks but they're pink, girls get them when they grow too fast. I have them on my hips and upper thighs, the cocoa butter isn't working.

Hey girl,

If the lotion's not helping you out, you might want to visit a doctor or dermatologist to get a professional recommendation on how to fix them!

I am in track along with training for cross country so I run around 24 miles a week,along with other activities when I hang out with friends, and I try my best to eat right, BUT I STILL HAVE VERTICLE STRETCH MARKS ON MY THIGHS. They are very light but it still makes me really upset, I don't understand what im doing wrong!

I have a weird tooth that needs to be pulled, but the dentist said if I could lose it in a month, we would cancel. I'm really afraid to get it pulled, but I can't get my tooth lose, it won't budge!! Any advice?

Hey girl,

If it's not coming loose on its own, it's probably best if you leave it to the dentist. Don't worry, they'll give you medicine so it won't hurt!
