Your Body

You’ve found your Fairy Godmother and she wants to know how you would change your body if you could. Would it be your belly? Something unrelated to childbirth – like your nose? Would you change nothing? Share your wishes in the comments below.

UPDATE: I am closing comments to the entry now. Thank you for your participation!

    They don’t bother me all that much anymore but I could do without the stretchmarks! I also never minded having small breasts but after having my daughter they are even smaller and kinda deflated looking, so I guess I would like to have some nice smaller c cups lol.

  • Ashley Monday, June 7, 2010, 12:02 pm

    Oh, and I’d like bigger muscles… but I can do that on my own without a fairy :)

  • eilsel Monday, June 7, 2010, 12:29 pm

    i’ve never had “perky” breast, and although i’m happy with the set I have, i’ve always wondered what it would be like to look in the mirror and see them saluting me =).

    I would love for the fairy godmother to fix my diastasis and take away the 2feet or so of extra skin hanging on my on my stomach. It makes me feel like I have no core energy,even though I am very active and otherwise fit. It really bothers me..So what do I do? Clap my hands 3 times and turn around and she will grant me my wish? Come on fairy godmother…I don’t ask for much:) <3

    My Skin! I have eczema and no matter how skinny or shapely my legs are there are scars and sometime still a rash and people do look (or maybe I just think they do :). The rest I’m getting used to! (thankfully my little girl is so far eczema free!)

    I would change my legs. I have two sisters who are both thin, small-breasted and have legs that go forever. I got the odd genes (from my mother’s side) and I’m curvy, very busty, and mostly torso with little short legs (even though I’m the same height as both of them). I did ballet for 12 years and always regretted that my legs are so short.

    Other than that I can’t really complain. I wish I were not so out of shape but I can fix that on my own…

    I don’t mind so much the stretch marks my babies have left me with, they are proof of the hard mothering work we started as mothers. Those who don’t have them though are still lucky. I would change the sag around my belly and the excess weight around my belly. All that only goes with exercise though I suppose.. my boobs sag a bit and one is bigger then the other but they did before pregnancy..doesn’t worry me too much and they for my bubs so as long as my boobs make them happy :)

    Until I read Becky’s comment I was going to write that I would erase my caesarean scar, but for me also it is a powerful reminder of a how such a special mooment in your life can be linked to such a dark one. In lieu of the scar, I would one day like a breast reduction and lift!

  • Jessica Monday, June 7, 2010, 3:30 pm

    My saggy tummy skin. Luckily, I am thin enough that I can “tuck it in” to my jeans, and If I wear a bikini I can hide the sag pretty well with good posture. My breasts are no longer full and supple due to four years of breastfeeding (2 kids) but they are old friends, so I’ll keep them. If you spend enough time around other women in swimming suits, you start to realize that everyone has flaws, even women who have never had children. At age 32, I have pretty much made peace with my body and am grateful for what I do have. Now Fairy God Mother, about those new clothes I’ve been needing…

  • Kristina Monday, June 7, 2010, 3:49 pm

    For a long time, I would have said that I would change my nose. But over the years, I have become attached to my royal appendage. Now, the only thing I would change/get rid of is the hair on my legs/bikini area. Really, if she could just do away with the hair on my bikini line, I would be happy. ;-)

  • Tracy Monday, June 7, 2010, 3:50 pm

    my list is a long one……. the stretch marks from my armpits to below my knees, extra skin, 70 pounds (from 2 pregnancys and depression), ingrown hairs on my bikini line and legs and armpits, acne, by boobs to bounce back to where they belong, and cellulite. I would really like to be happy with me and not compare myself to the girls in the magazines.

  • Kiara Monday, June 7, 2010, 4:00 pm

    My Weight, at least 20 kilos. I wouldn’t mind it so much if it weren’t for my daughter, i can’t keep up with her she is sooo energetic. There’s also the pain that comes with carrying it all and the low self image that i don’t want her to pick up.

  • Tina Monday, June 7, 2010, 5:16 pm

    I have a few things I would like to change. Like many of these women they wanted to have the ability to love their bodies and I would love that. I’m soo sick and tired of being insecure about my stomach that has a bit of extra skin, my boobs that have lost fullness and are small, my butt that I feel is to small, my legs that I feel are too skinny and white :|| I just want the fairy to grant me the feeling of loving my body for what is it is :)N being confident..oh how much i’d love to be confident :)

  • Sharna Monday, June 7, 2010, 5:19 pm

    I would ask for a few things. Mainly… my teeth to be in good condition again. Visually, they are straight enough, a little stained, but fine. I have cavities and a fear of the dentist. Would be brilliant if they would be fixed. The cavities got so much worse during the pregnancy.
    I would also like to lose weight and have my skin tighten. I am ‘obese’ so there is definitly a need.
    And scars, Im more self concious about my scars from scab picking then my scars from selfharming years ago.

  • Amy Monday, June 7, 2010, 5:43 pm

    I wish I had nice slender ankles and more muscle on my calves. I have never been able to wear a pretty little dress and heels. They are always hidden under tights or boots. I am a slender person who eats right and exercises but no matter what I do these things never seem to change.

  • Autumn Monday, June 7, 2010, 6:36 pm

    i would change my boobs, i would like them to be smaller im a DD and Before i had my children i was a B i would like to be a B cup agian and Get a lift job they went down hill

  • Lauren Monday, June 7, 2010, 6:43 pm

    I would want her to get rid of the dark circles under my eyes. I am young and they make me look older and very tired. I won’t go out anywhere without putting concealer on them!

  • Apryl Monday, June 7, 2010, 6:46 pm

    Honestly? I would just want my pre-Depo Provera (which I was on between my first 2 kids) metabolism back. I would love the extra energy and before that, I had to eat like a horse to not be severely underweight.

    I am very overweight now. I don’t like that, but I have accepted it. I wouldn’t want a magical fix to get rid of all the weight. Just to have back the ability to do it myself.

  • Roxy Coble Monday, June 7, 2010, 7:01 pm

    I would ask to get rid of my saddle bags! I have had them all my life, and after I have baby girl #2 I am getting them sucked off of me!!!

  • Amber Monday, June 7, 2010, 8:02 pm

    I’ve always said I’m happy with the way I look, I bounced back very quickly after giving birth, no stretchmarks on my belly(a few on my butt but I kinda like them)boobs are still perky and my skin is still tight. Then I went to the beach this past weekend and all of a sudden I felt ashamed of my looks. I’m not tan, my back has acne scars, my freshly shaved armpits still look hairy…blah blah blah. Please fairy godmother help me to look past these little things and be happy for the way I am, my daughter and husband love me no matter what. Use your magic on someone who has real problems.

  • Christina Monday, June 7, 2010, 8:41 pm

    Just tighten up my tummy skin a little…

  • Brittany Monday, June 7, 2010, 9:34 pm

    I would just want the stretch marks on the backs of my calves to magically disappear. Oh, and the scar on the back of my thigh that I got when I was 9. Then I could wear short and skirts and not feel terribly self-conscious. I love my stretched out belly and breasts because my gave them to me. I gave myself my calf stretch marks because I ate too much and didn’t exercise when I was pregnant with my first. That is all!

  • Maria Tuesday, June 8, 2010, 4:25 am

    I want to be thin, really thin, and be able to eat wahtever I want wothout worrying about weight.

  • krystine Tuesday, June 8, 2010, 5:08 am

    I have roughly 140pounds left to lose until Im at the mid point of a “healthy BMI”. Thats how overweight I am. I dont want to lose that much though, and I would never ask for it to just happen, because unless I was given the ability to never gain weight again, having that amount of weight dissapear while Im sleeping wouldnt teach me how to get there or keep it that way. I would ask the ferry god mother for the ability to smile. Something so simple that I struggle with every day, that my oldest (nearly 4) is starting to notice that mummy is sad alot.
    But cosmetically, I would want her to give me the ability to say no to the food. And a good metabolism!
