You can love your body at any size. The concerns you have about your body, about how others perceive and judge you, and how you hate your clothing are all things that you can change just by loving yourself. Yes, it's possible. Losing weight may or may not change your attitude about yourself. There are plenty of women at a healthy weight who also hate their bodies and feel judged by others. Hating yourself and punishing your body by attempting various diets is not the path to happiness.

Love yourself. Nurture your body by feeding it healthy foods and having treats - yes treats - in moderation. Do you like eating rice cakes? If you do that's fine but don't force yourself to eat diet foods just because they are diet foods.

Love your body. You don't have to think it's perfect, you don't have to like everything about it, you just have to be okay with it.
