You go Girl! You are right. Just because you are not totally stick thin does not mean you are not beautiful! Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Seeing yourself for who you are on the inside, not what you look like, will really change you. Keep up the good work, beautiful!

If someone teases you, and says you’re ugly, maybe it’s because they’re feeling the same way about themselves; most bullies only emerge from jealousy.
Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes; for some, it’s on their face; for others, it’s in their behavior; remember to always look for it in both places, because it’s there!

It may sound crazy but I am 12 years old and I am a bulimic. I came here and I am now on my way to overcoming this disorder and stepping out into the world again! Thank you!!

Hey Maya,
I’m 13 and I think I’m really fat. But what I never realized is that all of the popular girls are jealous of me, even when I’m jealous of them.

P.S. YOU GO GIRL!!

God Bless,

Maya December 10, 2011 at 3:06 pm

Well, I am still in the process, but I finally round up the courage to tell my mom, and she monitors everything I eat. Unfortunately, your body can’t tell what a normal amount of food is after you eat normally gain, but the first step is telling someone!

Mags July 9, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Maya is right. The first step is to tell someone! Whether it’s a friend, teacher or a parent, they will help you overcome it. Also, accepting that you have a problem and being willing to change is another crucial step. You have already said you want to change, so you’re on the right path! Keep it up, Cara! You are Beautiful!!

I love this website! I found out about it when one day at school I was going to the bathroom. I walked to the mirror and saw a post-it note. I read it, and it was an inspiring note and said operationbeautiful.com on the bottom. I want to keep this up, I think I am going to start doing this everyday at my school, and leave them everywhere! Not just on bathroom mirrors, but everywhere! It really helped me see that I am beautiful. I am 14, an average weight and I just always thought I was so fat. Because I compare myself to my friends all the time! And I used to always think oh your too ugly he probably won’t like you! But now that i have seen Operation Beautiful I see that I am not and that everyone has beauty! Thank you so much!

Honestly, I know how you feel. When I was only 11 I hated myself and everything I stood for. I gagged myself constantly to remove the meals I had eaten to make myself “beautiful” I can say I wasnt anymore beautiful than the filth I flushed down the toilet. Be strong, for even if it doesnt look like it, there IS a light at the end of the tunnel

And so we did for about a month, we would write quotes on he post its during math and in lunch we would tape them all over the bathrooms. I didn’t know that something similar to what we did existed until today, seeing this wonderful site (:

My mother was the only one who told me how beautiful I was. My mother died a few months ago. Everyday I struggle with the question every girl asks herself. Am I really beautiful? I know that I am in my head, but in my heart I cannot say I feel anything but horrid, discusting, and ugly. I feel that with the stereotypical “woman” who are slapped up on billboards, us young women have nowhere to turn but to the models who shamelessly place thier plastic bodies for all of the young, insecure women and teens who strive to feel beautiful. This post-it notes idea is one of the greatest Ive heard in a long time. It is a subtle but beautiful way yo catch us in our busy day to stop and think about our reflection, but with an optomistic view. Thank You to everuone who is fighting against the norm to be perfect!

Melissa January 3, 2012 at 2:43 pm

I completely agree with you Abigail. Society is part to blame for giving girls and woman an idea of what beautiful is and if you don’t look like this them you will be alone or unwanted. I to have self esteem issues and I used to just ignore them so I wouldn’t have to deal with it but all that does is just build up. This year I am determined to make things different :) I don’t know how but hopefully I will find a way

I used to hate the way I look. But one day I saw this video on YouTube, and it literally saved me. I was feeling so bad about myself and my writing, that I just wanted to quit and never talk to anyone again and just curl up in a corner and cry. Then my friend sent me a link to the video. It wasn’t an operation beautiful one, but it still brought tears to my eyes. I went to the mall the next day and saw one of these sticky notes. If I hadn’t of watched the video, I probably would have kept my head down, and not have even noticed it, but I did and it made me start to except myself. To this day I still haven’t found that video, but that’s alright; it came to me at the right time, and I will always think of it. So, this is why I want to try to participate in this as much as I can. Maybe just one note could remind people that no matter what there race, skin colour, sexual preference, or religion is, THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL!

Beauty comes from the inside not the outside. I have been overweight almost my entire life. I have been put down by so many people, people I don’t even know. What hurts the worst is when it comes from someone that should love you and lift you up not hate what you are and put you down. My father has said on more than one occasion that I am fat, that I would be pretty if I just lost weight, and that no one will ever love me because I am a fat slob. For a long time I believed him. After years and years of putting myself down because I wasn’t good enough for him which automaticly made me assume that I wasn’t good enough for anybody I finally realized that I have so many wonderful people in my life that love me for who I am inside and out. It was only just recently that I came to discover that I don’t need to please anybody else but myself. If I am happy whith who I am It shouldn’t matter what other people think! I still have problems with the way I percieve myself offten. I know that someone out there loves me for who I am though, And I am here to tell all of you that someone out there loves you for who you are! Don’t let the world get you down because you are all beautiful people, who are here for a reason! God bless – Brianna

I know where you’re coming from. When I was a little girl, I was the skinniest and tallest kid on the school playground. But once I hit 7th grade, when everyone started to tower above me, I had just moved back into my hometown, and all the teachers there would stress me out, plus the girls who used to be my friends made fun of me a lot for being ugly. So I would sneak extra food with me in my room, putting on 20 pounds in just 3 months! All 8th grade I was bullied for being fat, even by my mother. I’m almost done my freshman year, at 5′ 1″ and about 145 pounds, with my 11-year old sister just 3″ and 5 pounds shy from me. Earlier in the year, I was about 150. But since I became vegetarian a month and a half ago, I’ve noticed I lost a few pounds. I’ve even gotten my belly button pierced because of my new found confidence. You’re right, no one should listen to other people (like I did, my mistake) and we should just be pround of who are :)

For the very first time today, I saw operation beautiful sticky notes in all of the girl’s bathrooms at my school.

Hi everyone, i am not over-weight, but i had severe acne from 4th grade to 9th grade. i had to go on accutane, and i have a lot of acne scars, as well as emotional ones. but remember, no matter what it may be that bothers you about your apperence, you are beautiful! because when it comes down to it, its what your heart says. not how you look. :) <3

I was raped when I was 16, called a slut by classmates who believed the rumors my rapist told, and my relationship with my parents was torn apart by the incident from my high school days, I am now 20. For a long time I did believe that I wasn’t worthy, that I was as worthless as I was made to be, and certainly the faulty views of rape where… victims become continually victimized if they talk about it did not help…. but… I -AM – beautiful, I may have been abused, but I refuse to let myself continue to be a victim. I am beautiful, I am loved, and I am worthy of respect. <3

Hi everyone. This isnt my real name. Today I had a physical and they weighed me and it said I was 104.6. I was freaking out. I’m only 11 turning 12 in 22 days and I already almost as much as my sister. My sister weighs about 107 because she is underweight. She’s 17. I thought that maybe it was my phone because it’s pretty heavy and belt and they didnt tell me to take off my shoes. That was about 2lbs. Last time I weighed myself, I was 97lbs. I was feeling so fat today and when I sat down I looked at my rolls and I just wanted to cry. I’m very insecure about myself. Society has made me feel like I’m not good enough. I tried to fit in with the cool kids one time but I failed. I believe that everyone is beautiful but when I look in the mirror, I have to look away because I dont like what I see. I feel ugly all the time. I have acne and oil all over my nose. My doctor said I should use proactiv but my mom says it doesnt work. My mom says I’m beautiful,my friends say I’m beautiful. I dont see myself AT ALL as beautiful. I asked my mom about a million times if I was pretty or gorgeous or if I could be a model. She always says yes but I feel like she’s saying that because she’s my mom and it would be rude if she says no. It’s the same with my friends. I just found this website when I was looking on Google “how to make yourself feel beautiful” and I found this website. Hopefully I can feel better about myself. Because I WANT to feel good about myself. (My name isnt even close to Jane :D)

Reply

Caitlin August 9, 2012 at 7:59 am

Try not to compare yourself to your sister – everyone comes in different shapes and sizes and that’s perfectly okay. Google ‘different body shapes’ to see how we all weigh different amounts because of our shapes. The most important thing to remember is that health is the key. Your sister isn’t healthy if she’s underweight. Being healthy means you never get sick, your hair is shiny and you probably won’t get acne! You feel good from the inside out, too because you know you are taking care of yourself. Maybe you can talk to your doctor, mom, or a teacher at school about how to be healthy?

PLEASE READ I KNOW IT IS LONG BUT IT IS WORTH (WELL I THINK SO)
Now that I think about it I believe deep deep down I knew about Operation Beautiful because me and my friends had and still have this saying it is “Everyone’s weird in their own special way” which to us is similar to “Everyone’s beautiful in their own special way”. The reason we liked this saying is because at my school being weird is good. We believed normal is boring which is not an insult because to us noone is normal so noone is boring. We would and still will walk around calling each other weirdos as the other person replies with a genuine thank you knowing this as a very good thing. This little thing we would and still do gives every person we call weird self-confidence. I think we have our own little version of Operation Beautiful. Our saying has got out and more people know it. It sounds like something Lady Gaga would say and I am proud we came up with this. I want everyone to think about your life and see if you had or have your own mini version of Operation Beautiful. I will continue our and your version of OB proudly forever!!!!!! Ps have not started yet but soon will ? Remember everyone, You Are Beautiful and different/weird in your own special way!!!!!!!

You were never behind another, you are the first one at the line. Hear the crowd shouting your name. A song with a great melody dancing your heart away. Thinking about the others is the sign of peace and cherishment. Don’t feel insecure, bring the good stuff and share it to others. Don’t look down, look up. Look outside and you see the world smiling at you. No matter you’re gay, all a lone and different. You are the priority. You are who you are….

K, I’m asking the universe for help AGAIN. I read the book and felt more mad than inspired. I’m 43. Lonely and depressed. They say “the answers are within” and that “happiness comes from within” but I look in there and there’s no happiness. I have worked very hard all my life to be grateful for simple things like my legs, sight, air and all the things one has to survive. But survival isn’t enough. I’m sorry but its not. I want to be happy. I want to “live” and feel “alive”. As the days of my life continue to pass unchanged, I become more bitter, more discouraged, and more cynical. Just saying” I’m going to change my attitude and the cup is now half full now!” is a total crock, iv done it 100s of times. I wish my suffering would end.

Everyone says that what’s on the inside doesn’t mean anything when it does it…Your type of personailtys or how you treat people!! People shouldnt have to feel inscure about them selves and yet… people pick on people that feel so inscure about them selves.

i work at the boys and girls club and it’s kind of sad to see and hear little girls worry too much about what others think, i constantly hear thern say that they are ugly or too fat. my hair is always a mess and my uniform isn’t flattering at all so i really don’t look that good. whenever i hear them say a negative comment about themselves i tell them to look at how beautiful i look today. they usually giggle and forget what they said so i guess that’s a good stay, today i wrote “i am beautiful” on a piece of construction paper and taped it to their restroom mirror, hopefully this will improve their self-esteemand make them realize that they truly are beautiful

Do not cheat on yourself, then you are disrespecting your individuality. Just hurts the way you say it and hurts the way your parents see it. Just look at the mirror, deep inside of you, and you’ll see bunch of sparkles in your heart.

I am 18 years old. I’m 5’6 180 lbs. That is my real weight not exaggerated to make me skinnier. Usually that isn’t huge but I have very broad shoulders and a hips. I have had issues with my weight for many many years. I stopped eating at one time, I made myself sick and my mom saw what I was doing and made sure I had dinner every night. I’ve grown out of that now, I am hoping to enter the Air Force in three years after my bachelors degree to become a doctor, I do not have a lot of self-confidence which is why my life is harder than it has to be. I date guys who don’t really love me because I don’t see myself worthy. I have been told I am pretty but I have never seen more than a second of it myself…. sincerely working on my confidence

My name is Maria and I am 10 years old, I am 4’4 and 62 kilos, I am completely and utterly disgusted by my weight, everyday my weight tortures me, seeing beautiful girls pass by with daisy dukes and short tops, It makes me feel horrible. Knowing that wearing that would attract unwanted attention. I self harm and i’m not proud of it. Two weeks ago my mother signed me up for the gym, I absolutley hated it, and only lost 5 kilograms within 2 months. I tried to starve myself but ended up stuffing my face within 2+ hours. Yesterday a boy from my school told me I was beautiful and kissed me on the cheek. I pretty much exploded. I started crushing on him :) I feel much better about myself. Oh, and remember YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL NO MATTER WHAT! :D
