I’m 17 and I’m in a dilemma. Should I lose weight?
I’m healthy and I accept my body. But after a friend of mine said to me “you shouldn’t gain any more weight. Actually, you can lose a bit” I started being a little self-conscious. Usually I don’t want to think about it much since I have an anorexic past but I’m not so sure anymore.
I’m 157 cm tall and 55 kg
