I heart my body

I read about the "I heart my body challenge" at Simple Pleasures. At first I wasn't sure if I wanted to do this or not and then I was like, "Yeah, I can do this!" I chickened out yesterday so let's see how today goes. Days like this I wish my blog was set to private.

I heart my left leg (or legs in general) because even though they are two different sizes (drastic sizes) and my left knee is full of scars, they still hold me up and I still have them. They tell a story and build character and I will learn to embrace that!










I will also begin to heart my stomach. It was home to my two babies for almost 9 months and it is mine. I used to have a very flat stomach, but not anymore and that is okay. To have that flat stomach I wouldn't have my two beautiful daughters and so once again it has a story and character. I'm not 17 anymore, that's for sure.





If anyone is interested in this challenge, follow this link.

And, no laughing behind your computer screen, I can still see you!

You are very brave. I am not in a place where I can heart my body right now.

You go girl. I am also not at that place yet but I am always amazed and fascinated by those that are able to do that. Of course if my belly was as small as yours I might heart it after all. LOL

PS: I can not help but watch Ghost Hunters and other shows like that. Most of them are so fake but every once in awhile you find one that makes you think hmmmmm? And I need the adrenaline jump that I get when something makes me jump. LOL Shark shows do that to me too.

YOu go little lady, you have the cutest little belly. YOU are so brave, I have been trying to decide what i would do, hmmmm still thinking

Janice said...

I know.. maybe I will spare you all and not do my belly, maybe I will do the two tatoos that I want gone, but have to remember why I got them in the first place.... maybe tomorrow I will do it. Tune in tomorrow my friend, it might be a good one.

From where I sit, that belly still looks more flat than not. I admire you being able to love those things about yourself.

Give me a few months, then I might gain the courage to be like you!

That is an awesome way to think of your stomach.
I still do not think I think I am as brave as you.

You are brave, but then you look good, me on the other hand would break computers across the world if I posted myself.

Courtney, You are so right about both your leg and tummy! What a neat challenge! I wish I was as brave! (((HUGS)))

And I am so sorry for being a comment slacker! I have been so busy. :o)

You're a better woman than I. I read about this challenge to and thought about doing, or about a second. Maybe one day I'll be able to post my oh-so-less-than-perfect body on my blog. But it won't be today.

AZMom said...

BRAVE girl showing off your belly!!! I don't have the guts to do that!

Good for you though!! You should be proud!

Jen said...

I would never be brave enough to post a picture of my stomach online!!!

I consider my tummy laden with "battle scars" and I'm proud of them!

Carey said...

Good for you! I tell myself the same thing about my stomach, how it was home to my 4 kids, and I would do it all over again to have them here...etc.etc. It makes me feel good for a little, then im right back where i started..feeling fat and hating how nothing fits.
