It really annoys me to see people with such great bodies, goin' around having great sex and being attractive to everybody. Yeah, I know I sound like some desperate dick who can't get any. But hey I'm gonna be honest about it.
So how many hours a week do you spend at the gym? How perfect is your diet? Do you at least have good teeth, skin, etc? Well groomed? Do you have a decent career you've worked hard for?

People love to complain about what they don't have, when in actuality there are tons of things they CAN change, yet dont!

No one is perfect, but seeing people complain about what they don't have and make excuses is terrible.

What you SHOULD envy in others is their work ethic if you lack it. Their self control with diet and drive with exercise and to succeed career wise.

Whatever is up with your skeleton, I can tell by your post that you are still not maximizing your potential in what you have. Get their first, and the longing for what others have will be much easier to handle
I saw a guy in the gym with muscular dystrophy lifting Dumbbells last Thursday. Is your issue that bad? Doubt it.

Jennifer Lopez.

My life would have been so much easier if I had her body.

Alas... I just have to keep on keeping on.

Disagree with that. Just because some people are thin or even toned doesn't mean they have a nice shapely body. Some bodies are just disproportionate and unattractive no matter how hard they work. Of course this depends on one's opinion on what a nice body is.

I can't answer it either except to say I don't bother anymore wishing for such things. I sometimes wish for better health, but even though I'm not good-looking and I'm an older woman, looks honestly aren't very important to me.

Of course! But I don't have a perfect body. I'm a little hippier than I would like, really short, and I have pretty big boobs. But I work out a lot to keep things toned and help me feel better, especially since I have a lot of health problems. But I don't fret about not having a perfect body. I won't ever have one anyway, and exercising and eating right does a lot for me.

I can't change my bone structure and it puts people off. So I'd love to know how you'd tell me to change that if you apparently think it's possible. I have an abnormally developed skeleton, like someone in a circus, and it's very rare. No change there.. and yes everyone I've met is totally put off by it. Maybe now you'll understand a bit more about why I feel like I do.

There's no known medication for the allergy I have. Seeing as I've had the condition years and you've only just read one of my posts, it should hardly need saying that I've already explored every possible cure/medication there could be for the condition.

I'm not ONLY interested in whether a partner likes it or not, but also my own satisfaction in it.
Then this is not about a great body in the traditional sense. This is about having a normal body. I can't imagine how you feel, but I'm sure it totally sucks. I had interpreted your post more superficially - like having big boobs or a thigh gap something. I hope science finds something to help you - in the meantime, you certainly don't need to feel guilty about not having a different body.
