The blogosphere thinks I'm ugly...

A few months ago I started getting press and now I'm what you'd call perhaps a "public figure," though a minor one. The problem is that I "read the internet" and come across comments about me being ugly, unattractive, etc. I'm letting them get to me...

All this despite having a boyfriend who calls me pretty and generally being somewhat successful. I guess I was always a little insecure growing up as a "fat kid." As I got older I lost weight and started feeling good about myself, but now I'm feeling dragged down again.
It makes me empathize with all the female writers, actors, and other personalities I've seen called ugly over the years...I don't know how they handle it.
What is the best strategy for not letting this get to me?
