What do you feel is the difference between your attitudes/behaviors and those of someone who has normal insecurities about her body?

Most of my friends are insecure about their bodies, in a normal way, so I'll use them as examples. They tend to go on a lot about their weight "oh i'm so fat... look at my fat thighs..." & then start a 'diet' [healthy eating, no chocolate, water, no fast food] which is usually broken within the first day. They tend to say they'll do something about their weight, then never do it. Whereas my attitude to losing weight is that if I want to lose it, I'll do it & not just procastinate about it. I also tend to keep my "im so fat..." type whinging to myself, because I don't like drawing attention to my body. (I hope that answered the question...)
