How Do I Love Thee Body, Let Me Count the Ways...

Today is Love Your Body Day! 

Love Your Body Day is sponsored by NOW Foundation and today I am participating in the NOW Foundation's Love Your Body Day Blog Carnival...

How Do I Love Thee Body, Let Me Count the Ways....

I am a 50 something menopausal women who just happens to love her body just the way it body is not perfect, nor is it suppose to be.

I do not want to have a cookie cutter figure...

I'm an apple and that's OK!

 My body is not a size 0..I am a size 22 and that's OK!

I am not pretzel thin and that's OK!

My body is beautiful just the way it is and that's OK!

With me...what you see is what you get...
I don't have to be a super-thin super model
I don't have to weigh 95 pounds soaking wet
I don't have to lose weight to please others

I am woman, hear me roar...
I love my body and I will not be

Remember... your beauty is not what you are, but who you are....

    Awesome! My body is strong and healthy and beautiful, even if I'll never be on the cover of Cosmopolitan (and really, would I want to be?)

    Love this, love you, rock on!

    Okay, how's this for irony - my word verify came up as "portly" I kid you not!

    WOW what a great post! I look forward to the day when I can say what you have. I love the "remember your beauty is not what you are, but who you are..."

    I am with Bev, I am strong. I walk and walk and walk, and still I have curves. I still have the odd moment, but I agree, we gotta love all of ourselves.
