    being "exposed"
    rwood1987 posted:
    Hello everyone,
    I currently live with my boyfriend of 2.5 years but have had been self-conscious/had body image issues ever since I hit puberty. Needless to say, I have avoided the issue at hand which is that I still feel uncomfortable being naked in front of my boyfriend. When we are intimate, I want the lights out (always) and even though I know he has seen me naked, I prefer we have the lights off. I know positive attitudes could help, but I don't know how to constantly feel good about my body. I work out 3-4x a week, I eat better, I'm 5'3" curvy and was an early-developer with 34DD chest. I always feel the need to lose weight but dating a pastry chef doesn't help in that department. If anyone could help me figure out how to not hate my body and to enjoy being naked with my boyfriend it could greatly help out our relationship. Thank you in advance.
