I am confident in who I am. I know I am overweight. I also know my personality far exceeds any negative outward traits.

I take pride in my appearance. I still dress up for my boyfriend of five years. It's fun getting "all dolled up" for my special someone - every day, not just for special occasions.

I care about what I look like. When I exercise I'm not so pretty, sweating and dressed in my exercise clothes. But I know exercise is a means to an end. And that makes me feel confident. So while I exercise and don't look so pretty, I still have confidence in myself.

I may be bigger than a swimsuit model, but I'll bet I have just as much confidence as she does.

Confidence is very sexy, don't you think?

    YES!! I sometimes have to give myself a "you can do it" confidence pep talk before an event. Occasionally it's fake till you make it. Put on an air of confident you and before long you are there.

    Confidence is a difficult thing to have for many people, of any size. Believe it or not, a lot of models are severely self-consious and totally lack confidence. I used to know a woman who was a print model. Her outward 'confidence' was a complete sham, used to draw the attention from men to get free drinks and maybe a one-night stand, but she couldn't handle being with them much longer so she'd destroy any hope of a relationship. She was so stuck on herself (she has a mental health disorder) that she couldn't see beyond any one moment. She hated a lot about herself and her life.

When someone can be confident and have self-worth without an overblown ego, it is a rare and wonderful thing to behold. Be true to you and love who you are while you reinvent your outside self to match your inside self.

  I love what you're saying...just stay confident like you are no matter what and you'll be just fine. And you have a boyfriend of 5 years, I think you both think that confidence is sexy, way to go!!
