I don't how to describe how uncomfortable. I just dislike how I look in general.

Not very I guess, It makes me have little confidence with women.

Why for who?
For me, I just grew up being called fat, being teased, being a loner.
Granted I lost most of the weight, and I've been told I look better.
But old habbits die hard.
I still refuse to take a shirt off outside of my own house.
I still hate how I look.
And I will always slouch when I walk.
I know deep down I'm in better shape physically now, technically, but mentally I'll always be this way.
Everyone has their scars to bear, and that is one of mine.

And as for confidence with women, I have none.

Personally I dont take off my shirt only with close friends and family I dont feel confident in appearance to take it off anywhere else but time heals all eventually. I still have tons of time to attain the fit body Ive always wanted most people do.

However with me I think it's a bit more mental.
Actually with everybody it is, whether they are happy or not.
But I think even if I was chiseled with a 6 pack, I still would be unhappy and uncomfortable.
I'm comfortable enough to take/post pictures of myself, but even so, I could take 40 pictures before I post a single one.
And no, it's not about "angles" it's just, either I hate that I didn't smile, or I hate my smile, or I think my eyes look angry, just little things that add up to a huge dislike.
I guess that's the best way to describe how uncomfortable I am

I'm fine with it, but I put effort into it and the clothes I have to wear are kind of awesome

Honestly I've never seen this as an issue, and I don't mean to dismiss it for others, but I can't see how it happens? So much of self-image is under your control.

yes i used to be fat as well, im pretty fit now but still slightly uncomfortable taking my shirt off. i figure nobody cares how your body looks as much as yourself and as long as your in decent shape nobody can say anything.

Very, but only because I work so hard at it. When you love to run, swim and play outside these things translate. That and being on the forced frugal side of living produce and non-fatty foods are pretty cheap. I do miss eating meat though.

Yeah thats true I dont think I look to bad but I want to look better. Its very true though nobody can put u down if you feel in decent shape personally I dont look that bad as ive been told but I still wouldnt just parade around shirtless at the beach I only feel comfortable with friends or family really.
