And she can understand why I think they're pretty. Because they are.

So why is it she can see the physical appeal and beauty of so many other BBWs and not her own? Do any of our resident BBWs go through this too? And if so, why is this?

LOL.. this is not a BBW issue. This is a woman issue. For me, when I look in the mirror I see the parts of me that men would consider attractive and would find me pretty/cute/etc. However, I know myself and I know my not so sexy parts and those are more visible to me than the sexy ones.

Think of it like this. Say you are making a painting and it is in a gallery for sale. People look at it and tell you, it is a beautiful painting and it is great, etc. Most won't see any flaws, very few see minor flaws but overlook them and still find the painting beautiful and amazing. (Sorry MattB I know the word is over used..lol) But when you look at it, all you see are the errors you made that make it imperfect.

It is just that want of being perfect that I think everyone has. It is what I call that "I wish....." factor. You know, the I wish my hair was straighter/curly/blond/black... or I wish I had wider/smaller hips, lips, boobs..
