View Full Version : What's your favorite thing about YOU
05-23-2007, 10:25 PM
I was running this morning and I looked down at my thighs and just enjoyed how strong they were getting me through this run. Now that is not the usual thought I have about my thighs, so I thought to myself, ok "what do you like about yourself?" So play along--but no positive/negative comparisons--eg. compared to my rear my arms look great :-)
My favorite body part: My strong thighs because I can backpack/hike, plod forever. I have a nice long back. I actually have a pretty collarbone :-)
My favorite personality trait: I am an optimist--I always hope for the best. I am practical--I expect only what can be delivered. I am resiliant--I bounce back after adversity and figure out a way to make it work.

I've got really bad eyesight, but that works to my advantage... it makes me look much thinner...so I love my eyes. God Bless you Astigmatism.
I like my nose. Straight, not huge like my mom's and not squat like my dad's, just a nice straight nose.
Personality trait- I'm funny. I like being funny, I like to make people laugh. Especially at inappropriate times.

I'm happy with my overall body. Not in looks, but I like to think that I'm pretty strong because I can do things like OP, backpack/hike, plod forever, carry loads. Even in this pregnancy, I'm happy can wear Dora on my back when I need to. With her that comes to pretty close to 200 lbs (did I just admit that?)
Personality trait - I can give pretty hard feedback in a very diplomatic way without diluting. Years of teaching in a girls school, I guess :-)

fav body part: my eyes, they're an unusual slate blue color up close, but i like that when i wear any shade of green, blue or purple they pretty much look that color.
fav trait: mmm, that's harder. tennacity maybe? - once i set a goal or identify a problem i usually see it thru. i like my creativity too.

Hmm, let's see. I love my upperbody. It's very well proportioned and up until my second child I had phenomenal breasts. Even now that the old girls are saggy, I still like how i look in strapless and sleeveless tops. My thighs and saddlebags are a different story.
Personality trait: I'm very organized. I have a very strong self-esteem and generally like myself (thanks mom and dad). Most of the time I"m upbeat and can find humor in most situations.

My favorite body part: probably my lips, if I had to choose. Or my upper arms.
They are fairly toned from carrying around my son. Too bad I can't carry my
son using my booty.
My favorite personality trait: I have 2 favorites. (I like myself, can you tell??)
I think I'm a fairly funny person. I also love to make people laugh at very
inappropriate times. (Kristen, we could get ourselves into some serious trouble!)
Unfortunately, my sister and I were laughing quite hysterically all the way through
my grandma's funeral. I tend to laugh at funerals. Not sure why.
And, my 2nd thing I like is that I am honest. I will always give you an honest
answer. Sometimes, you might not like what I tell you but I will never give
you some BS answer.
My fav body part: probably my legs. They've always been strong with minimal labor at keeping them so, probably from years of clogging (dancing), which never felt like work. I also like my eyes. They're on the small side, but really oddly colored. (Quite a few people believe that they're yellow.)
My fav personality trait: hmm. That's harder for me. I don't know how to write what I'm meaning without sounding kind of stuck up, but I don't mean it that way. I have an abaility to bring people together around me. I don't always feel like I'm an important part once things are going strong, but usually I'm a catalyst in bringing people together in the first place. Does that make sense?

Ooh, good post. We all need to respond.
My favorite thing about myself is my rockin' little body. LOL I look the same now as I did before I had kids, even when I'm naked.
>I'm funny. I like being funny, I like to make people laugh. Especially at inappropriate times. GOTTA copy this one as my favorite personality trait word for word.
Also, I'm open minded. Come one, come all, just as you are. I won't judge ya, and I really like that about me. :)

"I look the same now as I did before I had kids, even when I'm naked."
I need to quote you right back...
I look the same way as I did too... saggy boobs, fat ass, bags under my eyes.... H-O-T-T.

You also have a good sense of humor!

While I cannot hope to compete with your brilliant random threads, I suppose pounding the pavement for an hour can do all sorts of things to warp my little brain :-)

The best part of these replies is that being a mom obviously breeds a great sense of humor--how else would we survive?
My favorite one is the idea that my body looks the same and after....I guess I will add that to my list of "Why it's a good idea to have kids at 40". By then your body is so shot, that the after baby body won't make a difference. :-)
