I was reading this article tonight about fat bloggers and came across a link to this pledge. What a beautiful thing! Regardless of your size, if The Shape of a Mother moves you, this pledge likely applies to you. So take the pledge, pass the link on, and then leave a comment here stating one (or more!) positive things about your body. As for me? I love my wrists – they are graceful and delicate-looking. I also love my legs – they are strong and they carry me daily so that I can run after my active kids.

You know what? I’m a closet self lover! :D I actually do think I am attractive, even sexy. And I have had 4 kids in 6 years, am almost 10 lbs overweight, stretch marks, and vericose veins! I would like to be a little lighter for health reasons, and set better eating examples for my children, but on a whole, I like my body. I have pretty eyes, curvy hips, a cute smile, full breasts, nice skin, gosh… Im going to start sounding conceited here soon! But really, I appreciate my body, I am all woman, I am strong both physically and emotionally, and this body gave me an entire family. Whats not to love about that?
You know, I think that brings up a good point. When women don’t hate their bodies, we’re shunned for, like you said, sounding conceited. So, essentially we’re damned if we do and damned if we don’t.
Bless you, Amanda, you are sexy!
OOPS! that should have said ” I am almost 100 lbs overweight”, not 10 lbs! :D either way, I still love me…. and so does my kids and Hubby. Hey, my sons think that I am the most gorgeous woman in the world, what do I care what someone else thinks?
i love my long legs, swimmer’s back, blue/green/yellow eyes, size A breasts, small wrists and ankles, and long neck. i love the whole thing, actually, but especially these parts.
I have great hair and a nice bottom. I think I have nicely shaped feet and hands. And I do actually like my stretchmarks – I think they’re a nice addition!
I love my hair and my skin. I was forever trying to be tan in my teens, but I’ve embraced the sunscreen for healthy skin. I look better pale anyway! I’m with Amanda – almost 100 lbs. overweight and trying to see beyond that.
I like my eyes. I like them even more because my daughter inherited them from me and its quite and amazing feeling seeing them in her. I also like my butt, its round and sticks out nicely in pants. :)
I work out and eat balanced meals. I wiegh 145 and am done feeling bad about that!!!! So what if my stomach has stretch marks!!!!!
