Baby steps at embracing it...

So I saw in facebook THIS post from one of my friends and I instantly clicked over, because anything to do with body and embracing it... I'm ALL over because I want to know the secret.

No, really... I do.


We've discussed this before, but I think the verdict still hasn't come in.

SO- then I click over to THIS site:

And fell in love with this girl from her VLOG... she loves her butt and boobs! Can we say green with envy???

Plus she's super hawt. So I get it.

Anyway, I thought I'd join in since I'm trying to change my thinking on the whole body image thing.

So... without further ado.

What I LOVE about my body.

I love my eyes.  Does that count?  It's on my body.  Baby steps people... baby steps.

I also love that my body was healthy enough and my pregnancies were incredible enough to have these beautiful children.  Does that count?  I mean it's about my body.

I also love my Collarbone. I think I appreciate them more now that I broke one of them. But I don't have a pic.

Okay that was theraputic.

I'm not sure it even counts... but like I said, I'm taking baby steps.


Kristina P. said...

Those definitely count! I remember after I lost a bunch of weight, how excited I was that I HAD a collarbone.

T said...

hello! you didn't mention your great smile and teeth!

baby steps are good. I have cute pinkies - that's my effort for the day.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Kristina P-HA! I totally get that!

T--Your pinkies are the most adorable things EVER! :) Thanks at smile and teeth. :)

Malea said...

And you have these amazing pair of legs that never stop. Your kicks were always gorgeous. And since I'm a butt person I look at everyone's, all ages, sex, creed, color. Great butt on you, girl.

Que said...

Now, lovin' the collarbone thing??? That's hot (and really funny)!

Barbaloot said...

I'm glad you said your eyes, cuz if you hadn't I totally would have thrown that in there. But you did leave off the smile---like T said.

Cherie said...

You do have amazing eyes - they are so big and blue - very very pretty.
It is good to love your body and yourself. One thing I have noticed more and more over the years is that A. No one is happy with their body. (Even those little skinny butt women!).
B. Everyone has flaws and gets rounder as they get older. Just facts of life.
C. Life is too short to worry about it.

I'm off to look at my collarbones now!!

Jessica Stier said...

I love your jaw line. You have a fantastic jaw line.

Momma Sunshine said...

It's important to remember that your body doesn't define you in any way. It's just the vehicle for the important stuff. So love it! Love all the amazing things that your body can do...because without it, you couldn't do anything. :)

Mama Belle said...

Love it! And, I always thought you had beautiful eyes too.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Malea--Since you and T. and Barb are the only ones that know me in Real Life... THANK YOU! Please come by and tell me that every day. Especially the butt comment! Boo-ya! :)

Que- LOL... and it's totally true. You just don't appreciate the beauty of a good collarbone until you break it and make one not as pretty :)

Barb-Hey...remember the gap in my teeth!!!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Cherie- You are SOOOOO right at life is too short. Which is why I'm concentrating on trying to overcome my sick twisted idea of myself. It's just so difficult for me for some reason. But you are right... nobody really loves everything about them self... unless they are male.

Jessica- gah... now THAT is nice to hear!!!

Momma Sunshine- "It's important to remember that your body doesn't define you in any way. It's just the vehicle for the important stuff." THat should be my new mantra when I look in the mirror. Thank you for that.

Mama Belle- That says a lot coming from you with your HUGE beautiful eyes!

Candice said...

Handy. I love your eyes too! And your freckles.

Candice said...

Handy. I love your eyes too! And your freckles.

Jeannette said...

That second photo is GORGEOUS! Your eyes are beautiful. I love your hair too, so vibrant!

Elizabeth said...

Okay, I have blue eyes... but your eyes are BLUE. Like BLUE-BLUE! I would love to have that color. You're very pretty.

Jennifer said...

I think you're adorable! Your eyes, smile, cheeks, freckles- so beautiful! I also like your hair color & shine! :)
You look young & healthy! Keep up whatever you're doing!

Andrea said...

I think you're totally cute (and hawt but I don't wanna say that too loud ya know?)

I don't know if anyone really truly loves their body. But having a positive outlook and self-image is really a good thing. So get there and then you can teach the rest of us how to do it!

Mom2zqb said...

Your eyes are beautiful! I lover your hair. I found you through the mommyologist.

The Mommyologist said...

You are absolutely GORGEOUS!! Seriously, with your eyes, smile, and hair, you could be a model!

I also love that you talked about loving your body for your pregnancies, etc. I think that sometimes women forget just how amazing our bodies are and all that they are capable of.

GREAT post and I'm so happy that you found me and linked up!!

Danielle said...

I think this is a great idea. Your eyes are killer, but you already know that I think you are beautiful!

DCHY said...

Baby steps, huh? That's a good way to go. Better not fall down. ;)

From Tracie said...

Eyes definitely count...yours are amazingly gorgeous!

I would add to that your smile. Beautiful!

Alex said...

I can't wait to see my collar bones again!

You look great.

The Urban Cowboy said...

Shoot woman, you need to stop worrying about all that crap, and concentrate on feeling good.

BTW...your sexiness does shine through your smile, and eyes. You really exude hotness in that last photo!

Plus you're a red head...I'm just sayin.

Garden of Egan said...

I love how you are embracing your bod.
Your eyes are great.
Your dimples are outrageously darling and they should be against the law.
You have clevage.
You are the nicest person on the planet.
The End.

Kristin said...

Those most definitely count. You also have amazing hair and a wonderfully expressive and beautiful face!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Candice--Thanks... we've discussed that freckle thing before.

Jeanette-Thanks-I'm just happy I could come up with something! :)

Elizabeth--Hit the light just right on them and they come out pretty vivid... but they are normal blue otherwise! But thanks! :)

Jennifer--You are welcome here anytime... and you must repeat all of that each time you stop by! ;) Thank you so much. I am actually do stuff for myself to help me feel better about it all. Glad you noticed!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Andrea--Sounds like a plan @ getting there and letting you know. We may be gray by then, and that's a totally different river to cross! Who am I kidding, I'll never be gray ;) Well ditto at hawt... it will be our little secret! lol!

Mommy2zqb-So glad you came by! Thanks so much. And I love how you said "lover" I do that all the time. was it on purpose? Cause I do it on purpose so just wondering :)

The Mommyologist--Thanks for the model comment! Gah, that high might last me like 2 hours!!! I just loved loved your video. We would definitely get a long.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Danielle-- Yes you may have mentioned that... but you're still prettier. :)

DCHY-lol--I'll try not to! ;)

From Tracie- Thanks. My smile wins me points sometimes... but I did write about the gap in my teeth that are it's demise! lol :)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Alex--Is that you in your avatar? I can see your collarbones from here and they are sexy! What are you talking about!?

TUC-I kNOW I KNOW... hence the baby steps... I'm workin on it okay! :) I sense sarcasm at the last photo exuding sexiness... I love being a red head... just sayin.

GOE--I believe you took my nicest person on the planet award... I'm pretty sure of it. Okay, I use to hate my dimples with a passion, but I do see the beauty in them now that i'm older... they keep me young :) Love ya girl.

Kristin--WOW... thank you. This has been a great start to me coming around on this whole body thing I think.

And you have cute dimples and freakles. Love the thought of emracing my body. Actually doing it is something else. Still need to write about that for you!
