    I have always been told I have a pretty face or a lovely personality and all those other wonderfully insulting comments that people think they are complimenting you with!

    But today....I decided I am beautiful, not because I have lost alot of weight which appears to make you more socially acceptable but because I am me! :D

    Are you?

    Yeah Kat - good one

    I think it's being at peace with ourselves that makes us beautiful.

    Wow, made me think there Kat! Like you I was often told I had a pretty face, but knew it was really because they couldn't find anything else to say.

    I feel happy with myself at the moment and am loving developing a new me in terms of clothing style. I can see my eyes shining back at me in the mirror and I have a great smile. But the best bit is my hubby's response. He is clearly very, very delighted with my new shape and look:flirt2:. He definitely makes me feel beautiful.

    But, do I think I'm beautiful. Well, yes I do! Your post made me really think about it. Thanks!

    Ohh great thread Kat.

    Well I've always had a high opinion of myself looks wise.....lol. I always felt sexy, even at my heaviest, and I've been fortunate enough throughout my adult life to be told a lot that I look great, but for all that, what makes me feel beautiful is me. I like myself as a person, I think I am warm, kind, loving and caring, and that to me is what makes me feel beautiful........ohh and finally accepting the stretch marks on my tummy....:D

    I have always liked myself as a person. I always try to walk in peoples shoes, and try not to make quick judgements. I have always been told (mainly by my mum lol) that i have a nice aura, and a pretty face.However, I have to say, I have never descibed myself as beautiful. Im starting to feel a lot prettier as Im getting slimmer. Maybe one day I wont feel 'embarrased' to call myself beautiful.

    hmmm
    have been thinking about this all day

    i know i want to say yes - as its the right thing to say everyone is beautiful in their own way, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder etc etc but i'm not sure if i really believe it!

    i think i'm nice

    i am a nice person inside and i look nicer now on the outside - but the word 'beautiful' doesn't sit well with me!

    I'd have to agree with Daisy - I just don't think I would ever consider myself "beautiful". Not because I have low self esteem (quite the opposite :p) and not in a "woe is me" type way, I just don't think I am. I don't think I am unattractive, I'm actually very happy with how I look (now), I just wouldn't choose the word beautiful to describe myself :)
