I didn’t think this could include health! Then instead of boobs etc. I would either get new lungs (Because asthma) OR a new immune system (because deadly food allergies and chronic hives etc).

I feel bad even typing this out because there’s so much I wish I could change that realistically I think just changing one thing still wouldn’t make me overall happy with my appearance! But I guess if I had to pick one—I’d say my skin. I have eczema, and some pretty deep wrinkles for my age—I’d get rid of those two things!

Oh that’s easy.  It would have the lead singer from the now-broken up band Augustana wrapped around it.

Currently I’d change my sensitive cervix lol. I’d tell it to toughen up! Been bleeding for almost 2 months of my pregnancy and it’s quite scary. Thankfully I only have maxxxxxx 10 weeks to go but I’m over being so anxious! 

 

Aesthetically, I have really wide hips and my weight gain is usually my tummy so I’d love normal size hips and an smaller gunt lol

Mainly just that I wish I could keep weight off/stick to a particular weight without having to manage it so carefully. I run a lot so have to eat more calories to compensate, but whenver I fall off the running wagon I just keep on eating the same amount lol. 

Even though there are things I’m not a fan of about my face I’d never actually get surgery. It’s just too much of a headfuck to me for my face to be a different shape. I WOULD, however, like constant fake eyelashes and my eyebrows filled, it just seems like too much effort.

I’d like to have slimmer legs. They are disproportionately thick for my body.

If it’s one thing I think I’d probably grow hair out of my head I think, it’s not imperative but I would appreciate it.

Everything. There’s nothing pretty about me. I’ve only been called pretty 4 times in my life. However if I had to stick with one thing it would be my yellow buck beaver teeth.

I used to want a breast reduction, but these days I really like my DD’s.  I’ve had 4 kids and 3 c-sections.  I’d love a tummy tuck.  But I’m afraid the recovery is miserable. 

I wish I liked more vegetables and less sweets .  It would be easier to eat healthy.  Losing weight is so much harder as you approach 40.

i had a very pronounced bump in my nose, so i got a nose job a few years ago. spoiler: still not in love with my nose from straight on, because i didn’t want to change everything and stop looking like me but in profile i’m stoked. no more bump! and i had a 10lb baby at 16 that positively wrecked my stomach so i’m getting a tummy tuck this summer. thrilled my surgeon does drainless ones, because drains are a nightmare. i expect similar non-perfection improvement. 🙂

but if i’m being honest the thing i’m most insecure about is the fact that i always had such lovely thick hair and over the past few years its really thinned out and i’ve lost so much of it up top that you can almost see through to the scalp if i’m not careful with how i style it. if i could snap my fingers and have my old hair back i’d gladly give up my tummy tuck in trade.

Something I could change realistically – my nose. I have a bump that makes it look twice as big and profile shots are a nightmare to look at. 

Something that is completely unrealistic – my height. At 5’3 I really shouldn’t complain but at my naturally set weight and right in the middle of the bmi scale, I’m obviously nowhere near overweight but I’m not the petite, dainty type either and that’s the look I like on myself most so I was (TW) struggling with anorexia for about 4 years. It’s not a pity party but for me it was never about being “not thin enough” but rather “not tall enough” – I’d lose the weight to elongate my stubby arms and legs, so I always felt I’d deal with body image better if I was even an inch or two taller. Realistically though it probably wouldn’t change a thing I just need to work on loving myself. 🙂
