What Makes You Feel Better About Your Body? - August 10th 2010, 11:33 PM

Girls, and guys if you want..

What makes you feel better about your body and self-image?


Geek? Nerd? More like intellectual badass.

Swim. Nothing boosted my self confidence like being in a bathing suit in front of the school and dozens of people I don't know. It may sound scary, and it totally was at first. But now I'm so sure of myself and my body because I know that I am in shape and people still accept me in a bathing suit.
Also, the choice not to wear makeup. I don't need to spend time in a mirror to look beautiful. I can just go out as I am.

When I can walk out of my house in the simplest of clothes. Jeans and a tank top or sweats and say I look okay.
Because there is a lot of times where I go out of my way to look nice but when I can just step back and be in those clothes with minimal to no make up and say I look good. Thats what makes me feel better.


Always remember to put your happiness first.

When I've been to the gym or something like that and not over-done it with the eating then I feel better about my body

Doing some excersize. Not for the sake of losing weight but it pumps all kinds of chemicals around the body and generally makes you feel a little bit 'tighter'
New perfume, new clothes. I have bad days all the time though and on those days its not even worth thinking about it too much. I often fall asleep with my hands on my stomach but on a bad day I'll avoid doing that at all costs.

getting my hair cut or colored.
or getting new clothes/shoes.
or even when I wear certain outfits, like my summer dresses.

Nice underwear It's an expensive habit

Having a hot shower and being totally squeaky clean - especially when I can smell the lemon bodywash afterwards

A good hairstyle, working out, and eating healthy. Sounds about right


You can lose yourself. Everything. All boundaries. All time.

And just when the sweet confusion is so intense you think you're gonna die... you kind of do.

Leaving you alone in your separate body, but the one you love is still there.

That's a miracle.

You can go to heaven and come back alive. You can go back anytime you want with the one you love.

My boyfriend.
His compliments always make me feel great especially on the days when I am wearing scruffy clothes, no make up and just look a mess.

My Mum's compliments make me feel good too, my boyfriend compliments me a lot where as my Mum doesn't so when she does I know she means it and it always makes me feel great.

When my hair curls nicely instead of frizzy, after I workout, when I get new things, and picture comments.

Right after I just get outta the shower, and I'm all clean and fresh.
When my jeans aren't super tight.
When I wear heels--they make my legs look nice, I think.

I'm going to sound very conceited but I'm not
Going to the gym in the morning, taking a shower and going to school considering my career is full of boys (engineering only 3 girls including myself) and everyone complimenting me.

When I have really nice underwear on.

When I'm wearing a really flattering shirt.

When I've blow-dried my hair out.

When I get checked out by cute guys.

When I feel comfortable in my clothes.

When I've eaten a satisfying, healthy meal.

When I've gotten exercise.

Doing exercise, especially very strenuous exercise e.g. climbing a mountain.

It reminds me that it is my body that allows me to do these things and enjoy them, allows me to LIVE, so why does it really matter if I have the boobs of a 40 year old whose had 3 kids or a slightly lopsided smile if my body WORKS?

Then other things like having my hair nice and having my eyebrows nice.

It's fine to have one.
It's fine to be proud of it.
But please don't whip it out in public and start waving it around.
And PLEASE don't try and shove it down my throat.

Re: What Makes You Feel Better About Your Body? - August 16th 2010, 11:24 AM

i dont really know, i feel great when i know ive lost weight though. when i used to go horse riding (sadly i cannot ride at the moment due to lack of money and horse riding is expensive!) i always felt great afterwards. i sometimes ride my friends horse when she invites me down the stables with her i ride her horse, but its very rare that i ride, once i have got a better job and am earning more money i hope to ride agian, also another thing that really helps me feel good about myself is bird watching just being out in the open in the middle of the country side with my bird books and a pair of binoculars and i will just watch the birds, i think its the things that you love doing most that help you feel good about yourself.

special events when i get all dolled up...it doesnt happen very often


The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows.
It is a very mean and nasty place and it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.
You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't how hard you hit; it's about how hard you can get hit, and keep moving forward.
How much you can take, and keep moving forward.
