My Body Gallery

http://www.mybodygallery.com/

I was playing around on MyFitnessPal and stumbled across this site.  For anyone who hasn't seen it, it's a collection of photos of women of all shapes and sizes.  I sort of love it.  I feel so much more "normal" in terms of my size and it's nice to see women embracing their beauty.

What's your favorite part of your body?  Would you change anything if you could?

Re: My Body Gallery

  • I love my feet no matter what.  They're little, they're cute (IMO, I know some people hate feet).  When I'm "in shape" I love my back.  It's strong and muscular and looks hot, without being manly.

    The only thing I would really change is that I'm one of those genetically "blessed" women that has cellulite no matter what I weigh.  So I wouldn't mind kicking that to the curb.

    My favorite part of my body is my legs. I walk a lot, so they are really nice.

    The only thing I would change would be my boobs. I like them, don't get me wrong, but for my body size (5'4, 135-ish lbs), they are a bit too big (DD, at least), and they'll just get bigger when H and I have children. I will probably had a reduction at some point so I don't have back problems.

    ETA: I'm already uncomfortable with them half the time. I can't sleep how I want to or wear cute clothes. And don't even get me started on the leering men. I don't like feeling like a piece of meat.

  • SEWF you measurements sound like a human Barbie doll! :)

    But I hear you on the back problems.  I'm taking a week off work to help my sister when she gets her reduction.  She was "overly blessed" like you!

  • I like my lips, eyes and hair (on the rare occasions that it's done).  I'm also told I have nice cheekbones, but I I don't really know what that means.

    I pretty much hate everything else, but that has everything to do with my weight at the moment.  I am back on Weight Watchers and actually seem to be sticking with it this time, so hopefully that will change in a few months.

    Celles, do you do WW online or go to meetings?  I seriously considered doing it online but decided to just track my calories on My Fitness Pal because without meetings/someone to hold me accountable, I think I'd fail :(

    <div>Barbie's measurements in real life would be almost impossible. She'd look like some of those pictures of extreme corsetting. Don't get me wrong, I like my boobs, but big boobs aren't always a good thing. I get leered at by creepy men so often that I wear baggy shirts most of the time, especially at work. I'm an Assistant manager, and it's hard asserting authority to difficult male customers if they are staring at my chest all the time I try to talk to them.</div>

    That shiit pisses me off.  I've been followed in stores countless times and hooted and hollered at.  And the thing, is the guys act like we should be so privaledged(sp?) to have them treating us like meat.    Gross!

    ETA: I don't really see you as complaining due to body image.  More like you've been subjected AND big boobs do make certain activities a lot harder to do and can really cause a lot of back pain.  I totally hear you on that!

  • I love my shoulders and, as weird as it sounds, the space where my abs go down to my pelvis. I've always been very flat and toned there, although that my be changing soon lol.

    I hate my thighs. I hold most of my fat in my thighs and nothing works to make them not touch or not have cellulite. Even in high school when I was riding horses 10 hours a week, running 6 miles a day, doing Tae Kwon Do, lifeguarding (so swimming 1 hour a day), and running cross country.
  • That sucks

    They don't have my body type in their records

    Guess I'm a freak
  • -oot- there was only one in mine. And that girl looked way better than me.

  • I'm not a freak.

    I'm 5'8" and 120 lbs

    That's  NORMAL
  • Ha oot- Im 5'9" and +/- 130lbs

  • I love that site...I feel way better about myself.

    I love my legs...they are very muscular, which I don't love BUT I have no cellulite at all and when I work at it a bit, I have no fat on my legs at all.

    I hate my midsection. That is where I carry my weight...like the lovehandle and belly area. For me, that area requires a whole lot more work...I more or less have to have very low body fat for it to look lean...which is difficult for me to do.

  • don't get me wrong, I have some fat on them right now...but I don't have any cellulite.

    Also...I have the flattest ass known to man. I hate hate hate it. If I were going to get implants it would be in my ass cheeks because no matter how many squats or DLs I ever do, my ass will still be flat. When I lose my love handles it looks a tiny bit nicer, but never bigger.

    Thanks SEWF.  I don't see it, but I do appreciate you saying it.  :)

    Sherr -- I do Weight Watchers Online, but I use the word "do" loosely because this is only Day #3 back on the program.  I did it successfully a few years ago and lost 50 lbs. in about six months.  It works if you can make it stick!  Unfortunately, I didn't, so over the course of two years I gained everything I had lost and then some.  And I didn't have the motivation to try again until very recently.  (Anna deserves 100% of the credit for inspiring me, too!  Thank you Anna.  <3)

  • Pretty cool. I'm still not any happier with my body though after looking at it. Oh, well. I hate my stomach. Even when I only weighed 100 lbs I still had a small tummy. I don't have bad cellulite on my thighs, but it's definitely there. I do really like my smile. I also love my boobs. They can be a major pain in the ass (32E) but there are very nicely shaped and everything.
