So there's been a lot of negativety going around about bodies/s_xuality/appropriatenss and I feel I added to it by responding to it--so I would like to do my part in fixing it. Please don't post in the boards with the angry remarks and keep bringing them to the top--that way they can go away! YEY! HOW ABOUT WE ALL POST WHAT WE ABSOLUTELY LOVE ABOUT OUR BODIES!!??

A wonderfull inanner! I was thinking something along these lines yesterday. I am plus size and I like it. I do get a little envieous of thinner woman, but in truth I am happy. I would love to lose wome weight but if I don’t, so what. I am a mom. I am more happy with my body than I was before I got pregnant. I have mentioned before I am one of the lucky ones who are back to my prepregnancy weight. Actaully I am lighter than that. I lost weight the entire time I was pregnant with my first. My doc was not worried cause the baby was gaining and I was "plus size" anyways. I did gain about 6 lbs the last two weeks but I had already lost 15, so that put my total weight loss at like 9 lbs. Then of course once I gave birht I droped another 50. I loved it. I gained a bunch of that back after I found out I was pregnant and then lost pregnancy number two. I was very depressed about it, even though it was unplanned. When I got pregnant again soon after I stayed pretty constant. I would lose a couple lbs and gain a couple. By the end of the pregnancy I was up 6lbs. I lost it all after birth in the form of baby, plancenta, and water. I was back to what I wieght after my first pregnancy. I was lucky enough to not fit into my pre pregnancy jeans cause they were too big. But I was still a bigger person. I don’t mind my unflat tummy and streatch marks. I earned them gosh darn it….I am a mom and I am proud of it! I am happy with my body. Or at least happeir than I have ever been. But there are those moments when I long for long thin legs and skinny arms, and some smaller b___bs would be nice too!

Thank you EmberBaby for saying the thread is nice--and asking me too..(; I love that I am healthy and able to do whatever I choose to do. So what if parts of my body does not completely look like media perpetuate stereotypical/objectified images)--why does it need to be? Who am I pleasing? My husband can't keep his hands off of me as it is---have concidered rolled up newspaper and pepper spray..any ideas?

I am 56 lbs lighter than I was prepregnancy and now am a skinnyminny, lol. I like being tiny now and I am a lot more confident because of it! I used to wear a size 15 jeans and now I wear a size 3-4. So I love my body in general now, which is quite the change for me.
