Dear Diary,

I am usually very positive, outgoing, bubbly, sociable, and seemingly self confident EXCEPT in situations where there is a possibility that my enjoyment involves men engaging in conversations or asking me to dance.

I like working out, sometimes, but I find it difficult to stay motivated.  I am not crazy about my body shape either, which confounds my unhappiness.  You see, I am very apple shaped.  So if I don’t maintain a certain amount of weight loss, my shoulders and back fat get really huge. 

It is maddening! And quite the dilemma.


Unconfident with the opposite sex
