I like the curve I have from my waist to my hips. It's smooth and fun to touch, like I'm petting myself.

I like my hair. It grows like mad. I get it cut once a year around my shoulders, and at the end of the year it's down to my buttcrack. Plus, it's thick and dark black. And I'm excited about the few grey strands I've been finding. I also fantasize about "shearing" my own head and making a coat for myself out of my own hair, and it'll be technically vegan!

I like my legs. They're pretty smooth. They have very fine hair so I don't wax or shave them. Once I sugared them, and when the hair grew back they looked kinda hairy... I decided to just let them be and they went back to being the fine-haired legs I love.

I like my shoulders. They're not too broad, and not too narrow, plus they're pretty toned from all the downward dog poses I do.

I like my hairy armpits. And my hairy cooch. They make me feel like a natural, wild woman.



Thanks for this thread, boober! :) It helped me feel happy after feeling pretty crappy today (the rain, and coughing endlessly... So painful.) Oh, and your mom is really awesome.

I love this thread.

I like my lips. They are big yet fit my face well.
I like my waist. No matter how much weight I gain or lose, it's always defined and I love that.
I like my eyes. The color and shape.
I like my small wrists.

I always grew up thinking I was fat, even now I think that some days. So it's good to remind myself of the things I do like about my body. Sometimes just reminding myself that my body functions and functions well makes me feel better. I've especially been doing that more recently. This past year, I've had two doctors tell me I was "deformed." Whatever, my body works and looks well despite "deformities" and not being cookie-cutter pretty.

oh man, I completely forgot and I never did mine.
-I like my hands, doubly so now that I have had the threat that I could loose dexterity and feeling. I appreciate what they can do for me.
-I like my hair, It is wild and curly and mostly unmanageable, but I do love it.
-I like my breasts. Man, having boobs is great. I like that they bounce when I walk down the stairs.

i love this thread! i need to do this more often.

i like my legs. they look hot when i wear heels and even though they have some bad scars from a car accident, they make me feel alive and strong when i run in shorts.

i like my collarbone. not sure why, i just think it's a really interesting and lovely body part.

i like my eyes. i guess they're technically hazel but sometimes they look like three colors at once.

Also, you guys can post multiple times about multiple things, it doesn't have to just be 3, and once. You could have a day where you are really loving your legs and come here and post about it. That would be not only acceptable, but encouraged.

I like that my hair is unmanageable and messy. I think it expresses character.
I like my lips and their ability to be gentle.
I like my dirty calloused feet because they tell a story of where I've walked.

I like my hair, it grows really fast and is naturally dirty blond, I like the dreadlocks I have underneath from never brushing it...

I like my legs, they are getting ridiculously muscular and make me feel like I could run away whenever I want to, I also like the way they look in short shorts.

I like my tummy finally after years of hating it. I can see my abs again and like all the little muscles around my ribs.


This is a good idea! I like reading what people like about themselves.

I like my big blue eyes-I get a lot of compliments

I like my collarbones-they make me feel somehow elegant and 'lady-like', especially when paired with a great strapless dress

My boobs are small and cute, and I love the way my boyfriend kind of marvels at them

And, I'm gonna go there and say that I like my vagina and all of its surrounding parts

I love my curls and that since my hair does what it wants, I never have bad hair days! Going natural was one of the best decisions I ever made. I look at my old photos now, and I look so different!

I love my legs and butt. My husband says I'm as obsessed with it as he is, but I gotta say, it's great!

I love my hands. I have very long, delicate fingers.

I also love the way my dark brown eyes have a ring of black around them, and although it gets me in trouble sometimes, I love how expressive they are.

I used to think I had weird non-existent eyebrows, but I'm glad I don't feel the need to tweeze or wax!

I need to do this, such a long week and I've been so down on myself lately for no good reason.
I like my arm and leg muscles. I'm tiny but I'm pretty strong. Can do a mean set of burpees.
I like my shoulders.
I like my smile and the way I feel when I genuinely smile, slightly crooked bottom tooth and all.

My eyes aren't particularly special. But they're big, and sometimes wide, and a decent shade of brown. And sometimes look like they're looking in slightly different directions. I kinda dig them.

- I like my over all size. I'm not tall but not short either, just somewhere in between!
- Something is forked up with the pigment in the skin on my left arm, and it gives it a really cool pattern on summer.
- I like my natural hair colour, it's dark brown.
- I like my waist and the curve from it to my hips.

This thread really gave me a wake up call, I need to start loving my body more!

I like the curve of my calves when I am wearing jeans.
I love the birthmark on my left leg that looks like a faint tea stain.

I have been thinking about this thread since it was first posted and it has taken me until now to think of something. Thank you for this thread because those two things make me feel better about myself, even if only a little bit.

This thread is nice...and also challenging, because for each nice thing I like, I immediately discredit it by thinking of 3 negatives to deflate it.

But....focusing on the positives are important...and the more you focus on what you like, I believe the more it changes your mind about things you may not like as much.

I LOVE my eyes. People always compliment me on them...they lure people in.

I love my hair color....People always think I dye it, but nope...its naturally this perdy!

I love being tall....and the way skinny dark jeans with sexy heeled boots make my legs look long and lean.

This was really a struggle for me, I'm glad I made myself do it. :)

I like my small wrists. No matter what my weight is, my wrists always stay tiny and I like how fragile they look.
I like my calves. They are shapely and have a nice sweep to them
I like my collar bones. I feel like they look nice when I'm wearing something strapless, which ins't that often, but still.
I like the finger nail on the pointer finger on my right hand. It somehow seems way nicer than my other finger nails. I don't know why.
I like my delts. When I flex I see muslces there and I think they look nice.

This is great.

I love my tiny wrists
I love my oddly boney tiny feet
I love that I'm kinda short and a head shorter than my boyfriend.
I love my eyes
I love my hair and how I seem to pull of anything I do with it.
I love the random freckles I have. One on my thigh, one on my boob, one on my hip. and two on my forearm.
I love my silver tooth (saved baby tooth with a root canal) that when I smile people notice sometimes and go "OMG YOU HAVE A SILVER TOOTH!"
I love my stretched ears.

I like my fingers, they are really bendy and freak people out.
I like my beard. It makes be look like an awesome hobo and I will be sad when I have to shave it off.
I like being short. There is less distance to fall when I trip over.

I like my height. Sometimes, I hated being "tall" because short girls thought that I was a freak or something (I'm 5'6'', btw).
I like my eyes.
I like my bellybutton.
