Love Your Body Day 2011!

Today is Love Your Body Day and Ashley over at Two Eyes in the Mirror has asked all her followers to do a post about why we love our bodies or how we learned to love them! To be honest I am never good at writing meaningful blog posts so this is a little hard for me, but it is definitely important for me to do this post. Society has put too much pressure on girls, and boys, to be perfect.  But the thing is, there is no such thing as perfect in the way that society wants us to think.  We are all perfect in our own ways. I am short, with man shoulders and sometimes I wish I had a smaller chest, but I wouldn't want myself any other way when I really think about it.

I have slowly started accepting my body for what it is and I embrace my shortness.  It means that I can wear super tall shoes and not be a giant, but I can also wear flats and be proud of being a shorty.  When I was younger, until I was 17, I did gymnastics and that stunts your growth and puberty so I never really had a chest until I stopped, it has taken me a long while to get used to the fact that I now have more curves but I am starting to get used to it.  It does mean that I cannot wear certain kinds of tops [I don't like showing too much] so I can't really wear v-necks or deep scoops; but I don't really care for those anyway so it works!

Some things that I LOVE about my body are my legs and awesome hair and my butt. Do you like how I made that last bit smaller, it feels a bit weird to say it, but I really do enjoy my tuckus, it looks lovely in jeans ;)

So no matter if you are tall, short, skinny, normal sized, flat chested, not flat chested, have big eyes, a big butt or man shoulders EMBRACE your differences and love them! They are what makes you, you! 

Why do you love your body?!

  1. true, you can wear huge heels without looking like a giraffe!!


  2. This is such a good idea - it's all about appreciating yourself and finding things that show off your assets!

  3. Great idea, love this initiative!
    Take a look at my blog, and if you like it follow me, I’ll be waiting for you!

    Cosa mi metto???

  4. You did an awesome job writing this! Great job! Yes, we need to embrace and love what we have. Once you understand your body type, it's easier to shop. You know what to embrace and what to stay away from.

  5. Yeah! Hehe, I like my body better every year. Sometimes I wonder what the hell was wrong with me before that I didn't! Oh, and you do have awesome, awesome legs... as much as I obviously love my body, I would rather have your legs (except um, long enough to fit with the rest of my body since I"m like five inches taller than you) ; D

  6. i think a lot of women feel weird about talking about what they love about themselves in general. kind of sad, but true. i love reading women talk themselves up, though. so good for you!! you should love your butt! =)

  7. I didn't know that gymnastics stunted growth but hey short gals are cute (I'm only 5'3"!) Yay for loving your butt- I love mine too!

  8. Excellent post! It's so important for us to embrace what makes us different!

  9. great post!

    Much love from the SABO SKIRT girls!

  10. Such an awesome idea. I love my small feet! Hahaha. It's true though.

  11. You should totally love your butt! I wish I had one! My daughter Kayla has one and I am so envious, lol! Heather

  12. I'm short with man shoulders too!! I was a gymnast too!! Loved reading this. Especially since my struggles are exactly the same.

    Thank you,

  13. What a great idea for a post!

  14. All my life folks have told me hoew great it is to be tall (I'm 5'9) but I don't know. Now I'm okay with it but through adolescence it was hard. Imagine towering over everyone like a giraffe! Then if I wanted a tall man I really had to hunt. You're right about wearing stacked heels. I've seen women pile their hair and stand on 5-inch platforms to get a longer, leaner line (if that's what they want) and it works!

  15. This is definitely something I struggle with! I love my body from a year ago, but I can't say I've given it much love lately. Need to work on that!

  16. Good for you! Great post! I love Ashley's idea : )

  17. Excellent post!!! I actually love my hair. :)


  18. So glad you took the time out to write this! Love it! And yeah. YOUR BUTT ROCKS. YOUR BUTT IS AWESOME. YOUR BUTT IS BEAUTIFUL. Sing it loud, sing it proud, sistah. ;)

  19. i really like the idea of your post.
    and your header is so awesome!


  20. Too right- once we love our body and are confident and comfortable about it, our whole oulook on life will change.

  21. i love my body because it's the only one i have and so i need to treat it like a temple with good food and exercise :)
