Sometimes I get days, where I just 'Feel Ugly".. not anything makes me feel better. It does not have to be a certain time, instance.. I just feel UGLY! I am sure men and women go thru this, does anyone have any tip to make us feel "un-Ugly"? What do you do?

I never ever consider myself as ugly. Sometime a person will tell me I am cute, I say thank you, but I don't see what they see. I feel I am fat sometime even though I have lost weight.

When I have my "Feel Ugly" days, I try to set some time aside just for me. I go and take a long hot bubble bath, put on some "sexy clothes" and make up. It also helps me if I take the time to do my nails and hair also. Usually by the time I am done, I feel much better. :) I hope this helps a bit cuz I know it can be very hard to get "me time", especially when we have kids! LOL

Yes i also feel like that. There are times that I am feeling ugly already and yet i am very lazy to do things to cheer my mood. But when i have a bad days like this all i do is ask my friends to visit me to cheer my me up and boast my confidence. Confidence will bring out our beauty. So every time we feel ugly, just face the mirror and tell straight to the person ur seeing how beautiful she is.

I don't know. I do not feel like I am an unattractive person physically, I am happy "with my appearance". I just get ugly days, I don't know why, but I do. I feel this, If I feel "ugly" I look ugly, does that make sense? I may look great, but something inside disagrees with the outside, maybe I forgot to do something, feed the ct.. whatever... Not sure I just hate my "ugly " days, and sometimes I cannot get past that ya know?

I dont consider the "ugly days" i just have off days and I dont feel my best. I just feel like going home and chilling. But on those days just try to keep up your confidence and have a postitive outlook and be optimistic. I try to just be happy.

That's cool! I miss those days. :( Maybe it is me, but I feel I "have to be pretty" for my son, for my hubby (Hubby wants me to take "off days") but even after i have my days , I just don't feel anything but ugly, maybe it's because alot of things.. Gosh I don't know.. I am not insecure, I just have these "Days"

I dont think its that i feel ugly . its that i just dont feel as good about myself as on another day . it could be my mood , or something that has brought me down , or i could just be tired . Gosh , sometimes i know i have days where i look better and then i get bummed saying why cant i look the way i did the other day . Most of my days are oh no i feel way too fat , or look fatter, or gained weight . for the most part my weight has days it brings me down and that makes me feel ugly . i have lost and sometimes i still see that real big girl !

Yes i have this feeling quite often. I have always had low self esteem, and my hubby helped get me out of that rut yrs ago, but lately have been catching myself doing it more often. I have a new friend who absolultey hates when she hears that I am feeling this way. I dont usually waer make up because i dotn like it, but when im having these days i try to wear it and it helps a little, but not much. I wish i knew the cure for this but i dont, so i will keep eye on this discussion to see if anyone gives any good tips.

When I have my 'feel ugly' days I decide to spend some time with myself. I usually go to a spa and have a day of beauty. I change my voicemail to explain where I am and then shut off my phone. My mom usually takes my little girl for the day and then I pick her up in the morning. If I don't do that, I dress up and go out to dinner and a movie. The SURE FIRE fix for me is spending time with my husband. I definitely feel pretty then. Liv

Yup, i do sometimes. Specially on bad hair days,or another zit breaks out,or at times when i dont know what to wear. All i do is i put the thought at the back of my mind and just forget about it and i just go on with my day. You just have to feel and think that you are beautiful and it will radiate outside.

Sometimes if you feel that way, take time to do special things for you. A beauty treatment a spa at home. Just give yourself some pamper time or change your hair and make up. You can feel better just adding some new colors and trying a few new things also.
