Body Image

I have been a nudist for many years and totally embrace the nudist way of life and thouhts etc which is one of the reasons I love the way nudists are. However I have not participated in social nudity for some time, partly as my familydont agree with it, but also I have gained some weight and dont particularly like what I see. I know that being nude amongst others we dont notice bodies/shapes/size etc, but it has become an issue for me. I am even embaressed to puta photo on here of me. I am now running which is positive and am starting to look for local nude swims etc, but just wondered what others thought. I am really keen not just to be a home nudist only any more and really want get social nudism back in my life.

Imagine if you spouse, or child, or anyone that you really loved said something negative about their own body and the words you would use to try to raise their self-image. Now, just put your name in place of theirs, stand in front of a mirror nude, and say those words to yourself. I know it is always easier to see the beauty in others than in us, but everybody's body is beautiful in it's own way.

Nobody is perfect, that tells you something about your body probably is that most complexes have and less would have to tell you nothing.Nudism is not of perfect bodies, and if you like something does not change it but if you don't change be happy and enjoy life and what you want to do! hugs from Madrid!


Nadie es perfecto, aqul que te diga algo sobre tu cuerpo probablemente sea el que ms complejos tenga y menos tendra que decirte nada.
El nudismo no va de cuerpos perfectos, y si algo no te gusta cmbialo pero si no cambia s feliz y disfruta de la vida y de lo que quieres hacer!
abrazos desde Madrid!

I also spent 20 years hating my body, and one day I just thought to myself 'you're not that bad'. I went on a diet, lost a few stone, bought some tight clothes and I felt amazing. I have put on and lost the weight a few times since, but I still wear tighter clothes and feel great.
I know I don't have a good (naked) body, but when I'm with a fellow nudist, I feel completely relaxed.
I now realise that fixing my body isn't the main issue, it's making my mind love my body (If that makes sense)

I think many has big problems with their body image - and I am pretty sure that naturism can help on that problem.
Some US statistics that might break your heart:

  • 42% of first-third grade girls want to be thinner.
  • 81% of 10-year-olds are afraid of being fat.
  • In the past decade, hospitalizations for eating disorders increased by 119% for children younger than 12.

I am back plugging away with exercise and diet and will try to get the confidence to eventually post some pictures and become certified as well. Thanks for your comments and being open about it.

Every single person hasinsecuritiesabout their body, when I am nude, I feel liberated knowing that I am hiding nothing and at that point I realize I don't really care what other people think about me!

As I have gotten older,and the job has become more stressful,I don't exercise like I should,so I have a bit of a gut.But I am not going to the nudist venues to win a fitness contest.I am going because I love being nude in the great outdoors,with other folks who love it as much as I do.That is the great thing about nudist,we accept everybody,no matter what shape they are in.I love the freedom of being able get naked and get rid of the stress that everyday life brings.

I have traveled all over this great world of ours and have noticed that the United States is by far the place with the most people over weight. not sure why I think some has to do with all the fast food places we eat at. most other countries don't have them or as many as we do. Just eat smart and exercise some. But don't let this put you of from being a nudist.

Living on 7 acres is our 7-acre fitness plan. I think living here, keeps me fit. With a bad back, I can exercise in the pool for a little bit. Looking foward to a little warmer water.

I think you ought to have a good body image. If you don't like what you see, change it. It will require work. All good things do. I think I look good except a few extra pounds in my gut. I am working on it. Even got a sunburn today doing it.
