TQC, will you talk to me about your body image problems? For those of you that have had body image issues, has this impacted your life negatively in any way? I've personally went through a phase several years ago (during weight gain) when the weight made me actually anti-social. I just didn't want to be "seen in public." It heavily detracted from the quality of my life during that period of time and sadly, a lot of it was just psychological.

I have a friend who is convinced that her legs are fat and that jeans make them look worse. Today she put on a pair she had recently bought to "demonstrate" this - I felt that the fact that her jeans were a size 2 (she's around 5'7) should have been objective evidence enough for her that her legs are fine. But when I pointed this out to her, it didn't really seem to impact anything. How do I convince her she looks fine?
