What I love about me

July 19, 2007

I have just been reading several weight loss blogs for the past hour, and I was saddened to see how many people are beating themselves up, hating something about their bodies, feeling like failures, etc.

I’ve been there, and I honestly can’t say how I got out of that space.  I go there from time to time, but now it’s brief visits — most of the time I live in a much nicer place, more accepting.  I am FAR from perfect.  All of the negative things I could say about myself are probably true on some level – but so are all the positives, and that’s where my focus is.

So, just to put my mind in a better place (and then take a break from the computer!) here are 5 things I love about me, and forcing myself to limit to the physical :

  • My eyes – my eyes are unique, on first glance they look hazel or green, but in fact they have sapphire blue rims and gold irises.
  • My lips – are full and fleshy and great for kissing.  I don’t need any of those “lip plumping” glosses – my lips are naturally pouty
  • My legs – are strong and well-proportioned, able to take me long distances
  • My boobs -(ok, this is harder, I could also list what I DON’T like about them)… are ‘voluptuous’ and give me curves and femininity, and are quite sensual.
  • My fingernails – (yes, 5 was difficult!) are healthy and clear, strong, well-shaped and help make my hands look nice.

Whew, once I got past my face that was not-so-easy, but I think it is a good exercise…  I’d like to be able to say something positive about every part of my body… maybe in the future.
