    I read an article in this months slimming World magazine and it was saying about how we always talk about the things we dont like about our bodies: you know the usual "Ooh i hate my big belly" or "my boobs are too droopy" that sort of thing? Well the article said to stand naked in fornt of a mirror and find things you do like and to focus on them instead. So I thought it would be a good thing for us to do. Heres my bits:
    1. I have lovely skin, its pale and freckly but almost flawless. No stretch marks even after having 2 big babies. Its soft and strokable.
    2. I like my eyes, big and blue and not many wrinkles around them yet either.
    3. My hands and fingers are long and can look quite elegant.
    4.I have ginger hair and love it, even though its not as vibrant as it was in my youth.
    5. I love the fact that I have a waist, even being many stone overweight doesnt change this. Having a waist makes me feel very womanly and curvy. A good thing!!

    So there's mine. What do you love about yourself?

    What a lovely positive post!

    1. Strangely I like the fact that I am short!

    2. I like my eyes, they are a sort of bluey grey

    3. I like the tops of my arms they have a curve to them which gives a nice shape

    4. I have been going to the hairdressers regularly and trying to take better care of my hair and consequently I think it looks pretty good these days.

    Oooh, a great, happy thread! Can I play too? :)

    1) I like my blue eyes, I've been told by many people I have "caring" and "gentle" eyes (whatever that really means :p )

    2) I like my smile and white teeth

    3) Now I have a jawline, I love it! :cool:

    4) I like my broad shoulders, especially now they look broader thanks to my waist being much smaller! :)

    5) I like my calf musles, thanks mainly to carrying around such weight all day every day they are nice and toned! :D


    Hopefully I'll be able to add more as the year/weightloss progresses!!!

    What do I love about me:

    1. I love my hair (when it's long) it's thick and strong and can withstand colourings and perms.

    2. I love my lips and smile - I have lovely lips - not too large or too thin. They carry lipstick/gloss well. I've been told by many people, including strangers on the street that I've a beautiful smile. Something I tried to his when I was younger because I have very crooked teeth.

    3. I love my hands / nails - my nails are a lovely shape and length. My hands compliment my nails ;)

    4. I love my breasts - I don't ever want to lose them. They are a lovely round shape and I like the size of my nipples - not too big not too small. TMI sorry!

    5. My height - in some ways I like being tall, it has enabled me to carry 10 stones extra of weight very well and much like Happe - maintain a waist. I've never been afraid to wear heels. I think I am able to wear clothes well because of my height. I love the idea of looking stunning and turning heads when I walk into a bar ... a big tall woman looking drop dead gorgeous. I just don't like the automatic intimidation people feel by me because I'm tall.

    6. (cheeky I know) I love my ankles and wrists because they aren't fat .. they're small.

    Thanks Happe for a great thought provoking thread.

    Been in a poody today, so kept reading this but not been able to reply before now.

    1) I like my face. Not traditionally pretty but I have a nice face, a good smile, and pretty eyes

    2) I like my hair - well how versatile it is, cos I can put all sorts of extensions on it! :p

    3) I am a curvy person - even when I have lost weight, I still have the junk in da trunk and it suits me!

    4) I like my hands - long, large, capable. They hold my babies safe, and what more could I ask for?!

    5) I have a big heart - fat or slim, I don't want that to change.

    1) I like my eyes - sometimes they look brown, sometimes they look green and sometimes they have a blue hue.

    2) I like my skin - it's smooth, babylike, and acne/spot free.

    3) I like my hair - it's long, thick and suits my face well.

    4) I like my nose - it's small and cute.

    5) I like my mind. I think in a unique way (IMO.) :)

    Smaller portions
    What a good idea! Loving every1's posts, here are mine...
    1. My eyes, they are big and are good with all different types of mak-up, and they change colours between, brown, hazel & green depending on what I'm wearing
    2. My mouth, although it's HUGE! My teeth are naturally straight and my lips are a nice shape that frame it
    3. My hair, long and brunette, but a colour that many people comment what colour dye I use and they are shocked when I tell them I've never dyed it in my life!
    4. Although it's large, my body is in proportion, so I hope when I've lost the weight I will keep my shape but just a smaller version
    5. The bottom half of my legs, from below the knee down, toned from playing hockey since I was 9yrs old.
    Keep it up all x
