    And realize your inner value. Other people are not always better looking or more intelligent. Don’t compare yourself to other people. Basically learning to love oneself is the only way.

    i have also had isues with my body and the way i look for years. i think its pretty common for lots of women and i am no different. i also have to confess to posting suggestive/sexy photos on certain sites, and after initially having doubts found that i liked the comments i was receiving. it did feel empowering knowing that (at my age)  was still able to appear attractive to the opposite sex. not sure if others feel or have done similar?

    I havent posted anything of myself but a student my son knew via collage wanted models for his art work he needed people of every age and background weight height etc to pose naked ..

    I was 40 at the time and thought if I dont do it now I never will.. It was art not porn and I got copies of the photos, one of which I had enlarged on canvas and it hangs on my bedroom wall..

    I don’t think it likely I would pose naked either but, being more into painting, I think more of that than photography. When I was in school I did pose, clothed, for the rest of the class to draw. It’s rather boring just sitting in a similar position for a long time. Good experience which I don’t regret but to do so naked? That said I am flirty at times so it’s not unlikely that I could get very suggestive but not nude.

    I wouldn’t pose nude myself, either. But – that being said – it can be a way to celebrate one’s body and show off the model’s assets. I do also think it can be uplifting to see the real human body: real women have lumps and bumps and photography disguises them and makes the models appear false. Because NO ONE looks like a photograph in real life. Not unless they’ve spent hours and hours preening themselves. And who has the time at 8 in the morning when the kids have to be driven to school? Again, no one looks like a photo in real life.

    There are ways to feel good about yourself: you could write a body image journal and could praise other women for their fabulous new shoes or their qualification. That type of thing.

    And: NEVER insult yourself or put yourself down. Learn to love yourself and your body.
