How body confident are you?

Ed_Ed_ Posts: 422 Community Manager
We've been doing a lot of work recently around how we can help people improve their body image and we have created this quiz to help people work out how positive or negative their body image is. Why not give it a go and tell us below what your result was. 

Also, a challenge to improve our self-worth, tag someone else on the boards and give them a compliment about something other than their looks. This can be a good way to remind ourselves that so much of us as people are the qualities we have that can't be seen. 

we tried this on instagram a few weeks ago and it was really awesome to see so much positivity on social.

    That link doesnt give me a result. But i dont think some of those questions show you body confident you are. Like i like clothes shopping cause i like being trendy tbh lol but don't like my body. And if spend long getting ready could not have confidence same as spending short time. I used to be more body concious when i was younger. I used to pad my bras lol.  Cause i used to really cared about being flat chested now i just accept it. When eating disorder is bad then i hate my body so much that i feel so agitated to be in my own skin. But i wouldnt say my eating disorder is bad atm but still care about my body but care more about my face atm. Like i think my whole face is not symerrical. And my jaw line is not the best. And my whole face shape i wish was different. And dont like my nose and my eyebrows. And wear make up in attempt to change it but yeah cant really change the shape of your facial features 


     and @Ed_ you have a warm friendly personality

    I have horrific body confidence. I always feel uncomfortable with how I look and always dear judgement. I try to avoid mirrors because I just pick myself apart. If someone makes a compliment I literally don't know how to respond or accept it. I very much try to hide in social situations because I fear what people will think of me because I look at myself as fat and disgusting and my ears are too small, my hair to frizzy etc etc. I don't have a partner out of fear he will hate my body.

    I hate it and Every time I try to work on my body confidence I end up in tears and even more uncomfortable with myself.
