Self esteem / Body image

I have poor self esteem regarding my body at the moment. I've lost a bit weight over the past three years but I still think I can stand to lose more. My parents and friends think I am at a perfect weight now and make comments about how "skinny" I have become.

Problem is, I don't feel any different. I look in the mirror and still see a fat, ugly person. I don't understand what my boyfriend sees in me, and honestly, all the compliments he gives me about my body haven't made me feel better, instead they have made me feel more self-concious. Because now I know someone is actually looking at my body! It makes me very uncomfortable.

With summer on the way I'm going to have to wear less clothing and it's scaring me because I don't have the confidence for it.

It's bizarre to me, that I can look in the mirror and see someone fat, ugly and unattractive, but my family/friends/boyfriend don't view me that way.

Has anyone else had a similar problem? Is there any way to deal with it and somehow change the way I see myself?
