well physically, I guess I would have to say my eyes; I love having bright blue eyes and it is the first thing that people notice about me.

Personality wise, my ability to make people laugh, I get such fulfillment from making people happy.

If you are 6′ tall then 190lbs doesn’t seem bad AT ALL to me. I’m glad you were able to give yourself a pep talk!

I LOVE that my body is proportional. I am overweight, yes, but everything is evenly distributed. If you asked me if I’d rather stay the same or lose 40 pounds but have a different bone structure, I’d stay the same.

I really like my taste in men.  (HAHAHA  I made myself laugh at that one!)  Honestly though, my Fiance is pretty much perfect.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

In all seriousness, I really do like myself.  I like my freckles especially.  I also have a very loud, contagious laugh that I love.  I get complimented on my smile frequently, so I’m learning to love my crooked teeth as well.

I like this post.  ๐Ÿ™‚

The best thing that I love about myself is that…… I am CONFIDENT in every aspect. 

I do not let what others say about me change nor affect me. 

I feel as though I can either:

1. be happy with all that I am or

2. be miserable with all that I am not. 

@MissHelen:  Congrats on purchasing a home, purchasing a life insurance policy and on your wedding.

I love that I am brutually honest. I NEVER play head games.

 

Physically – I LOVE my back. It is very muscular and solid.

I love my hair! It’s curly and kind of auburn/red/brown, and I think it’s gorgeous. I also really like my legs – not because of how they look, but becuase they’ve carried me through and out of lots of garbage in my life. I like my hands because they’re cute!

I feel like I could have written a lot of this – I am so huge into intuitive eating, body acceptance, positive body image etc and very pro-feminism and understand how detrimental all this body hating is to women.  Yet there are times when I get on a scale and freak out because I’m near the top of that range.  Which is EXTRA dumb because I intentionally lift weights to gain muscle mass.

Also, if you’re barely over your BMI range, it may not affect your insurance at all.  The last time I looked at an underwriting chart, it said that the best health class included BMIs up to 27 (or maybe it was 29… it was definitely higher than the medical chart).

Anyway, I really freaking LIKE my body, despite it being pretty different from the feminine ideal.  When I flex my arms, you can SEE where those extra pounds went!  I can do tons of push-ups.  Everything about me looks solid and tough and defined without being so cut that it looks body-builder like.  I have run into guys twice my size at full speed and popped right back up again. Form AND function, and on most days screw it if girls aren’t supposed to look like this or have this many pounds per inch.

I love my figure! I have curvy bits that go in and out and I love that. Just so long as I look at myself from the front so I don’t see my muffin top ๐Ÿ™ I also love my legs, I feel like I just discovered them before the wedding – I’ve had a lot of self confidence issues – and I wish I broke them out more often before then!

I like my smile, my eyes, and my wrists/forearms. Haha, I know that last one is weird, but they’re slender without being too skinny and I’ve just always liked that part of me ๐Ÿ™‚

Edit: this is an awesome post! Such a great idea.

I love my collarbone!  It really makes me feel feminine. 

I have worked very very hard to be able to look in the mirror and see myself as a beautiful human being.  I used to really struggle with that because all I saw was a size 12, 14, 16, 18, etc.  I used to trash my body, and just try to ignore the reflection in the mirror.  Then 1 day it clicked.  I started eating healthier, exercising and being kind to myself.  It wasn’t about the weight loss, it was about being kind to myself.  Now I can look in the mirror and I see a girl who is beautiful, and most importantly, a girl who cares enough about herself to try to maintain a healthy lifestyle. 

I think it’s so important for each and everyone of us to love our bodies and take care of them.  I love this post!
