Embrace Your Body Week 2010

I almost missed out on this but the fabulous and stunning DaisyGal of Kir’s Corner put her post up yesterday. To quote both the Mommyologist and DaisyGal…

The Mommyologist is doing something so amazing this week. It’s Called Embrace Your Body Week 2010!!!The MOMMYOLOGIST says… “Too often as women, and in particular, as moms, we look in the mirror and put ourselves down on a daily basis. We make comments about our bodies such as, “My thighs are so fat.” ”I wish that I could lose my belly pooch.” ”I hate my cottage cheese ass”, and so on and so forth. Let me ask you a question: How do you feel about yourself after you make those derogatory comments? Like shit, right? Well, Embrace Your Body Week is about getting rid of all of those negative remarks and accepting and being happy with WHO YOU ARE. Right now. At this point in your life…no matter what your shape and size may be.”So in order to participate and CELEBRATE my body, here as I am CELEBRATING my 40th Birthday year (Yep ALL YEAR LADIES!!)

I adore my eyes. I love the color. I love how sometimes they
seem really green and, other times, they look more hazel.
I love how expressive they are and
I love how they sparkle when I really smile.
Yup, I have to admit that I adore my boobs.
They give me a wonderful shape and are
pretty damned incredible.
My mouth has an incredible shape. I love the classic
bow shape. But, even more than the shape, I love
that my mouth allows me to speak words of
encouragement, love, and support.My hair rocks. I adore the curls and I think the

purple color is pretty damned fabulous.

So, what do you love about your body? What makes you feel pretty and sexy? Celebrate the many shapes of womanhood with us.

    I love this. You look stunning. Your eyes are gorgeous. You forgot to mention how awesome your hair is too right now. What a cool color. What an amazing project.

    I have to participate because I hate my body. Thank you for sharing this!

    Kristin,
    I like the way you did the embrace your body challenge – with closeup photos of the parts you like. Very effective because:
    I could really see your gorgeous, expressive eyes
    Your stand-out & say hello breasts
    Your shapely lips
    and your curly hair – couldn’t really tell the purple part on my computer. Cherry

    Your eyes are gorgeous! What a fun post and project. I really enjoyed seeing the photos. My husband had purple hair right before we met. You would never guess that now if you knew him because he’s a quiet engineer, LOL!

    I love this. This is an awesome idea! You are lovely and I love those lips. Your lips remind md of when I used to sketch. I always try to sketch the lips of my art just like that. I couldn’t always get it, but I love yours!

    Let’s see.

    Oh NO! Isn’t it awful that I’ve never really thought about this before and now that I’m looking at me I realize I’ve not really liked much of my body since I was a child. I will have to work on that.

    That is hard to admit too…sigh.

    I think this is a great project to participate in! Everyone needs to take a minute and think about the things they love about themselves every once in a while!

    Great pictures! That’s a wonderful way to highlight and show off everything you love and everything you embrace.

    My favourite thing about me is probably my hair. It’s a lovely shade of red and I’ve always gotten compliments on it so it’s something that’s always made me feel good!

    Yep, it is correct. We put ourselves down on a regular basis.

    You look great…I was smiling at the boob-shot.

    And I love the purple…I know you got it before you went for BlogHer…read through your previous posts!

    This is fabulous! You are bee-yew-tee-ful my friend!

    Ok… umm, what I love about my body? I will admit there’s not a whole lot.

    I am really digging my hair these days. It’s gotten really long and it’s super thick right now. I also love my eyes… dark blue, with a hint of green at the edges (of course they’re hidden by my glasses all the time). That’s about it. 😉
