I am me. I love me. And I love my bum!


As quoted by Trinny and Susanna!

Thought it would be a great topic of conversation. And not just for us women, any men can feel free to join in too Happy

What do you or don't you like about your body? What would you change and why? I think we should love every part of our body's, but I also know that us women can be very insecure about certain aspects of our body. Let it all out on here guys!

But remember, as Baz Lurman once said, "Enjoy your body. Use it every way you can. Do not be afraid of it, or what other people think of it. It's the greatest instrument you'll ever own."

That's really spot on.
As I get older (now 30... arrgh!) I really notice that I get lots of niggles and that bits of my body are beginning to wear out... for example I can only run 4 or 5 miles at a time without my left knee giving in... or I can't lift things up on to a high shelf at a certain angle before my back goes.

It's really true... make the best of what you're able to do whilst you can and don't be put off doing things because of what you imagine people might be thinking of you.

Thanks for that Fast Eddie! I'm beginning to feel aches and pains already and Im only 22! Surprised I can understand how hard it is though for us girls in particular, to really appreciate your body. When we have so many "perfect" women shoved in our faces through the media. It can be quite upsetting, but we've just got to remember that 99% of the time, when we're seeing in those women aint real!

Yeah, I saw this program that Alesha Dixon was presenting about image re-touching in magazines and on posters - it's astonishing how tweaked all the images are before they get into the magazine - not just taking away spots and dimples but dropping stones off a person and increasing cleavage by about 2 cup-sizes.

Nothing it what it seems and all it does is make everyone more insecure about themselves... and the only way to make yourself look better? BUY the clothes/ make-up/ shoes that's being advertised.

I'm getting so cynical! Scared

Hear hear Trudy! You're so right. It's sick! What people who buy these magazines need to realise when they see these 'beautiful' women, that it is all fake and no one can look as perfect as that. Everything is airbrushed and it is so wrong to think that is the way we should look. Sick!

Well I am happy with the way I look, I eat veg and fruit an fish and I LOVE choccy, I do callanetics or yoga (cant run, wont run, not even for a bus) but I laugh a lot, and Im convinced thats why I do not give a damn about the bit of extra flab round the middle, I look just fine to me and thats what matters. Not interested in what the mags say I should like or what celeb is doing what diet. By the way I have been doing callanetics for the last 20 odd years it keeps you supple and toned, and coz you count the tiny moves you make you clear your mind of all the nasty work thoughts we take home.

Callanetics is an all over deep muscle excercise, good for backs great for the tum ( works well if you dont eat choc or carrot cake, an even if you do its still damn good)keeps you real supple, and calm minded. It was devised by a lady called Callan Pinckney who has spinal curvature (is that spelt right?) I came accross a video in 1985ish (arggggg) and being doing it ever since. She was in her early 40's and looked a lot better toned than me as did her mum who was in her 70's. You can get her stuff on dvd but you have to check you get the right zone coz otherwise you wont be able to play it. Google her name, and have a look on amazon, honest I swear by this. Its quite difficult to explain what you have to do, but sit ups are not the hard slog we used to do. I been doing it for a year or ahem 3 and I dont seem to have the back or knee probs that a lot of my younger workmates have.

I love lady bums in all sizes, but preferably not too small. I had a girlfriend once that was VERY skinny, and it felt like a childs (might) and wasnt sexy at all
