More and more women seem to be chasing after the perfect body through diets or plastic surgery.

Are you comfortable in your own skin? Or would you be happier if you can gain a model's body?

I am quite happy with the way I look. It's scary how people seem to torture themselves just to look 'more beautiful'. My roommate has been on a diet for nearly three months now and she has managed to lose 10 kgs. Yet she is not happy. All she's eating these days are fruits and jelly. She won't even touch red meat anymore because of the calories. I guess the positive thing is she hasn't attempted plastic surgery.
I am not beautiful, but I think I can be quite pretty on a good day. I never go to any effort to make myself look more glamorous though - I don't wear make up and I only wear jewellery on special occasions. I am happy enough with my appearance, but I wish I weighed less than I do, even if it does not show.
I'm pretty happy. There are things I'd like to change of course, but I recognise that these are very small things (such as toning up a bit, or hair that looks less frizzy) and ones I could quite easily fix if I bothered, so I consider myself pretty lucky.
Yes I could lose a few kilos, but the older I get, the less focussed I am on how I look. I am grateful that all the parts work and that I am healthy.
I am very proud to say I am quite content with my appearance. My looks are by no means perfect and I do have occassional desires to fix this and that. But I am happy with the way I look.

In light of the rampant insecurity amongst many in relation to their appearance, I am very lucky to feel and admit that I am beautiful.
No I'm not happy with how I look, and feel sad that I don't look in the mirror much these days.

I would love to have a few things done...

I would like my teeth fixed, so I can smile again.
I would like the flabby neck skin gone.
I would also like to have my lips back..........no idea where they went?
A few less pimples on my face. Otherwise I am very happy in my own skin.
A few years ago, I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. At the time, I was super thin and thought I looked great. I didn't know it then, but it was because I was malnourished from my undiagnosed illness. As I began to get better, my body shape changed pretty drastically. It was difficult to get used to, as I had to throw out my entire wardrobe, change the way I dressed and buy different sizes. And because of the nature of the illness I wasn't yet feeling any better, so it all seemed pretty bad.
Fast forward a few years, and I have a new body I barely recognise. I could easily be critical of it, but I love my new body. Know why? Because it's the body of a healthy person. I know what it's like to be sick yet look 'ideal', and be healthy and not 'ideal'. And believe me - a healthy body is the most beautiful body in the world.
I'm pretty happy with the way I look. Of course, I'd love to lose a few kilos, but I'd probably just start to exercise more intensely if I decided to really do it - would never consider plastic surgery, I hate operations and hospitals!
Not happy with the way I look - I hate aging. But I wouldn't actually get surgery or even lasik. I just go with the mature avoiding mirrors.
Not really. I think I can make significant improvement to look better, but I find it hard.
Fairly! I'd like to change a few things, like being more toned, so I am trying with my exercise regime. Wouldn't mind being a bit taller, but hey, that's what heels were invented for!
I used to be fairly happy until I had an accident and now I am not so happy.

I am happy with my appearance dressed, as I am slim and look OK, however undressed I have to say, "is not a pretty sight" due to injury.

Yes I'm happy with my appearance
Happy with way I am, & what I have.
The main thing is good health.
Define 'appearance'. I'm fairly happy with my body now - with diet & exercise I've accepted that this is pretty much as good as it's going to get.
However, if I had a sh*tload of cash I would be off to the plastic surgeon in a flash to change my face. Having been told my whole life how ugly I am, it would be nice to have it changed. Though, like my body, I have come to terms with it and just don't look in the mirror much and NEVER EVER have my photo taken.
Heck. Where do I start? Few people are perfect and I'm certainly no oil painting but would never resort to plastic surgery or botox. Makeup can provide assistance to enhance what you have but as I'm older now, apart from moisturising my face, I rarely use makeup. The one thing I would change if I could would be to drink more water daily as I grew up so my skin wouldn't look crepey.
