    My Legs and my eyes. I think I have nice shapely legs, even being overweight and I just like blue eyes. LOL

    As saggy as they are, I still really like my breasts. I know that they were used to nourish my children when they were younger. I wouldn’t change them at all.

    I’ve also always loved my hair (super curly and thick) and my eyes (green like my dad’s).

    I may not like the way my body looks all the time, but I can’t deny that every single part of it helped nourish and grow my children. That’s way more important than looking good in a bathing suit, at least to me.

    I love my feet, hands, elbows, shoulders, butt, legs, back, and much more! My list of things I love is far much longer than the things I would change. I love them because they are unique to me and make me a shape that no one else in the entire world can match. They flow with one another.

    I have always liked my eyes. They are hazel with gold. They are framed by long lashes that show up when I put mascara on. :)

    I LOVE everything about my body! Having my girls has made me so comfortable with my body. I love myself…stretch marks and all! I don’t give a rat’s behind about what other people think about the way I look.

    I love my mummy tummy. :) I love the stretch marks and the jiggly bits, and especially the scar tissue where I used to have a navel piercing, which stretched during pregnancy and never returned to ‘normal’. I call it my ‘tummy tail’ (it’s a little flap of skin).

    I also love my freckles.

    What society likes to call my ‘flaws’, I see as the bits that make me unique. The fact that most of them were given to me by my kiddos just makes them extra special. :)

    I would have to say my belly. Both pregnant and non pregnant. When I’m pregnant, it’s big and juicy and full of life. When I’m not pregnant, it’s flat and strong and sexy :) Yes, I have stretchmarks on it, but that’s part of having kids…

    I love my eyes. I love my breasts that have nourished all of my children so well and still look pretty good after it all. I love my hips… wide enough to birth easily and still curvy.

    I love everything about my body. I love the whole shape of it. Its feminine and curvy, its sexy, and I made life with this body. My husband loves it, I love it, Im happy. The only thing I complained about yesterday is the tone, I just want to smooth a few things out. But the overall shape of everything is great. =)

    My eyes (green and round). My hair (long and naturally blond). My ankles (which have looked shapely at everything I’ve weighed, from 120lbs to 210 lbs). My smile. My booty (hubby’s favorite). My calves. My breasts, even though they were never perky, because they’re large and they’re mine and I feel like they represent my womanhood somehow. The back of my shoulders. My skin. My eyebrows (they’re a good shape for my face LOL).

  12. Kate Says:
    June 8th, 2010 at 9:47 am

    I wouldn’t have changed anything about my body, but the thing I like most about my physical appearance would definitely have to be my freckles… or my hiney. I really like my hiney.

    I like that I am healthy and able. I like that my eyes always look the same no matter how old I am or how much I weigh. I like the curve of my hips when I’m laying on my side. I like that my hair grows so fast I rarely have time to hate a bad haircut.

    I like a lot about my body. I’m overweight, but it’s all proportional, so I look curvy! I love my hair, A few years ago I gave up hair dye and just grew it out all natural, now i look back and wonder why I ever colored it in the first place. I love how strong my body is, I can still pick up and carry my 4’7″, 75lb son when he falls asleep in my bed (and I’m 22 weeks pregnant too!). I love that my husband still finds me sexy after 17 years and 4 pregnancies. I love my skin, I can go for days without washing my face and never break out. I love my eyes, even if I’m terribly near-sighted, because I think I look better in glasses than I do without. I love my mind, and I love speaking it! I love being a woman!!! Most of all I love my heart. I have dear and wonderful friends and family, and I hold them close in my heart.

    I love my eyes and my legs also. I have big eyes and long eyelashes I put on some mascara and almost always get a compliment. I like my legs because although they are not skinny they are muscular, long and somewhat lean. I can rock daisy dukes even my neon colored pairs and still feel comfortable

    I find my stretch marks to be the most beautiful part of my body! They are the sign of my love for my husband, God & our family & I have earned every one of them! Plus I am doing my part to reycle as I have reused my stretch marks with each following pregnancy lol! Seriously, I absolutely love my stretch marks as they are constant reminders of the 4 little blessings that I had the pleasure of nurturing in my womb…especially since we were told that without medical intervention we’d never have a child…God is all powerful & proved them wrong! I use to hate the way they looked until one day I was crying to my husband about how awful they looked & he told me “You are beautiful! Those stretch marks represent your love for me & our love for each other & for our children. They also represent the self-sacrificial love you have for our family. You are very beautiful & I love you!” I realized he was right! Like Jesus said…”This is my body which will be given up for you…”

    I love my body, and all that it has done! It’s hard to pinpoint one thing that I love and appreciate, but I always get comments on my eyes :)

  18. Sarah Says:
    June 8th, 2010 at 10:25 am

    I like my breasts. They are small and have silvery stretchmarks throughout them, but I love them. Now I connect them with the two years I spent nursing my little girl- so many precious memories!!! :D

    My stomach.. it’s still the same as pre-babies, i was lucky i suppose, still toned and no stretchmarks but now it’s softer and the softness is what i love the best, the skin moves a little when i touch it and it reminds me of having my babies in there! the rest of me is a disaster zone ;) but my tummy is fab!

    I’m still working on loving my new body, but one thing that really surprised me about myself was that I actually like my stretch marks on my tummy. They are beautiful. Considering I dreaded getting them so much during my pregnancy, I’m shocked that now when I look in the mirror I like seeing them there.
    Parts of my body that I have always liked are my lips, hair color, eyes and hands. Honestly, pregnancy didn’t do a thing to my body that I didn’t like…I just don’t care for the extra pounds that I let myself gain during the pregnancy by not eating as healthy as I should have. But I still am comfortable with my body for the most part.

    I like my face and my hair. I also like my tiny hands and feet. My hiney isn’t so bad either :)

    The good thing is I like more things about my body than the ones I dont like. I like my lips, my hair, my hands and feet, and my legs. This might sound funny but I love my eyebrows (thanks grandma!) they look as if I have done lots of work on them and I have never touch them! They’re are picture perfect! ;)

    oddly the same thing I love would be the same thing I change, My 42DD breast…it would be nice to see what they would look like in an up right posistion but They are perfect for me. I love my lips and my curly hair too….

  24. Natasha Says:

    I like my eyes. They are really big and dark brown, and have the longest lashes. I like my nose – It’s not too big and has a nice shape. I like my wrists. I think no matter how thin or fat I am, my wrists always look feminine and pretty :)

  25. Stephanie Says:
    June 8th, 2010 at 11:45 am

    I like my legs….still in shape and look pretty good after four kids. I have pretty eyes…color and shape. My lips are nice to. Now the rest of me, not so happy with but I am working on it with my heavy bag and Jillian Michaels workout DVD’s and boy does she kick some tush:)

  26. Sarah Says:

    I’m still working on my self image, and at the moment it’s a stretch to find something I honestly wouldn’t change given the chance. I do, however, love my eyes and definitely wouldn’t trade them for any other color. Lately I’ve come to like my breasts more and more. They’re uneven and definitely not perfect, but they’ve nourished my daughter for ten months now. I love my breasts for giving my daughter such an amazing start to life, and they continue to do so every day.

    i really wish something had just come to my mind as soon as i saw the question but i really had to think. i guess i like my hands because they can hold my little boy, my husband’s hand, and my wedding ring. they’re capable, my nails are cute (weird, but i think they’re cute) and they’re probably the only part of my body unchanged by pregnancy (after the swelling went away). i wish i liked more about myself, right now i just can’t see the flowers for the sag/stretch:(

  28. Alannah Says:

    My eyes, definitely, and my smile! My slender, shapely ankles, and my ridiculously small size 6 feet (even though they’re in desperate need of some TLC). My hands, my nose, my ears. My shoulders. My breasts (which are now enormous, and kind of saggy immediately after nursing my son, but I love them anyways). My height – a statuesque 5’9″.

  29. Stacy Says:

    My strawberry blonde hair, freckles, and beautiful skin! :)

    I loved the way my breasts shrank after 14 months of breastfeeding my firstborn. Although they were a bit saggy and felt strangely “empty” I liked the smaller size (even though I was always considered to be a bit skinny I was a D cup before pregnancy). I am currently breasfeeding my 2 mo and can’t wait to shrink back from this “milky” E cup to a more backsaving C!

    And I also like my small feet and the curves my hips gained after I gave birth to my second child.

    my eyes and beauty mark….the only things that I recongnize.

  32. Sara Says:

    I love my round, c-shaped booty! After years of hating the fact that it was so big, I now have the butt other women covet!

  33. Colleen Says:
    June 8th, 2010 at 5:03 pm

    I like my overall shape. It’s curvy and fantastic with a small waist and great boobs (even if they drive me nuts sometimes, especially every time I have to cough up the money for a specialty-sized bra!). I like how my brown eyes have gold in them, and how my hair shines golden when the sun is behind it (even though, in general, I dislike my hair…the texture, the frizziness, the blah dirty blonde color). And I like the way my feet look, lol!

    I love my booty because it’s big and it gives my body “character”.

  35. Christina Says:
    June 8th, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    I like my strong arms that hold my daughter and do boy pushups…i like my thick muscular legs that carry me through my day and let me run and relieve stress(and look good in shorts and skirts). And I like my big curly hair that sets me apart from the societal straight standard. I also like my booty…firm with a little bounce!

  36. Mina Says:
    June 8th, 2010 at 5:45 pm

    I like my legs – they’re muscular and lean, and I’m totally comfortable in shorts or a short skirt in the warm climate where I live.

    My eyes have always been the most favorite part of my body.

  38. Brittany Says:
    June 8th, 2010 at 9:32 pm

    I love my facial features: my eye color and the unique dot in each of them, my full lips, my eyebrows. I love my boobs and my feet. I also really like that I have long nail beds.

  39. Kerry Says:

    My bum! It has always been shapely. I have always gotten compliments on it from a variety of people. I could lose a ton of weight and I would still have my butt and I like that.
