I've always been a thin girluntil i turned 15 what i ate caught up to me etc. But i'd never been bothered by it until quite recently my boyfriend of almost a year1/2 walked in on me in the shower and told me i look pregnant which i'm not but i'm now extremely self-conscious that i can't enjoy sex with him because i'm araid of what he thinks. Help.

How you feel about yourself will impact how comfortable you feel with others, including your boyfriend. You can try talking with your boyfriend to explain how his comment made you feel. Be honest with him that you are now self-conscious about having sex. Consider your weight and how it is making you feel physically and emotionally. Living a healthier lifestyle of a balance diet and regular exercise can help you maintain a healthy weight.
