The lady did not realize the brilliant responses she would get from her fellow redditors. One man a former marine by the name Savagehenry0311 says:

“I’m not mansplaning or trying to discount how you feel but I’m offering a perspective that might help. Believe me I know what it’s like to dislike your body. I got zapped in Iraq and got some unsightly scars. I struggle to accept that I’ll never be as physically capable as I used to be. It sucks sometimes.
