Pick My Brain If You dare

Venture into my crazy life w/ 2 boys!

Here are some models before photoshop (they can remove bones showing and such with photo editing)...


Yep, I think I'll keep my fat ass, thank you! LOL


But seriously, all joking aside. What is with our wanting to be super skinny, blond, and "prefect"? There are so many different kinds of beautiful. No one likes only one kind of woman. We're all shapes, sizes, and colors for a reason. It's these sort of ideals that made my sister sneak diet pills, skip meals, and puke in order to lose weight at age 11 and fr many years until she realized she was beautiful no matter how she looked (she was deathly thin for awhile btw). If we were all one race, one weight, or all had only one style...can you imagine how boring it would be? I imagine it would be like living in a word or black and white with no color. Here are a few things I personally find beautiful (not to say other things aren't)....Please feel free to post a photo of yourself or something you find beautiful in the comment section below =}


Of course nothing more beautiful then a other and her child, IMO

If you need help, here's a hint, I pretty much just googled photos of women to find these.

Ok now mamas, let's see what YOU find beautiful!


...Just wanted to post out this is NOT a post hating on skinny girls! There are many women who are naturally thin (my mom has been  under 100lbs most her life no matter how much she ate to try to gain weight). This also isn't to promote unhealthy eating habits (over eating, ect.). All I'm saying is all women, all shapes and sizes are beautiful and we aren't all naturally one size. Some are wired to be on the thinner size, some on the thicker plus size side, and some in between.


Added for just a little humor :)

Awesome post. 

My DH and FIL are alwyas hollering at the TV whenever one of the Victora Secrets commercials come on that the models need to eat a damn cheeseburger already!

great journal post :) I think the most important thing is to be healthy inside and out (mentally and physically) and to be comfortable in your own skin -"own" who you are and love yourself-then your real beauty shines through.

i honestly think that beauty is in the eye of the beholder... as for me. i have a very warped perception of what beauty is. i had a father who would pinch my "love handles" and call me a heifer... I have been on Atkins now for 2 months almost, dropped 22 lbs but still see a fat blob when I look in the mirror. I am 5"8 160 and officially a size 8-10 but see a fat ass in the mirror staring back at me... the top ladies are wayyyyy to thin but i don't see anything wrong with victoria's secret ... i wish I looked that way hmph, in time I suppose

I used to be very self conscious until one day I realized that ya I have a few stretch marks and a little left over baby fat from being pregnant but I have the most wonderful 7 month old son. So I decided to rename my stretchmarks "tiger stripes" and just laugh when I see photo's of me when I was a teenager (and also extremely thin)  and think hey I thought I had it good then... now look at how blessed i am!

What makes me sick is that even skinny girls don't look like that (or SHOULDNT) I weigh only 98 lbs when I'm not pregnant (I weigh 113 right now at almost 21 weeks) and my thighs touch! You have to be seriously starved and emaciated to look like that.

Thank you. I've been having a hard time lately, a car accident has put me mostly out of commission, unable to work for almost three weeks and even now on light duty, (no lifting over 10 pounds, even my kids, and the eight month old is 20lbs!) and I have gained 15 pounds. Add to that that ALL my sister in laws are itty bitties, and my husbands family reunion is coming up (cousin joined weight watchers because at 5'6" she was a size 3, all tiny women too) and I've been dreading it. I was big before the accident, trying to lose weight, and now this set back. I saw the Marilyn Monroe one, and started to cry, because even though my husband tells me every day he loves me and I'm beautiful, I don't believe it. How could he love someone as fat as me? My bil's and sil's, I've heard them basically questioning my husbands sanity, they've taught their kids to say catty things to me, they've all commented that it's a "shame Jericho wound up with someone so fat"  and that he "could have done better in the looks department." His brothers tease him, and his reply is, "at least my wife doesn't look an escapee from a concentration camp." Seeing those models, then seeing the Marilyn Monroe pic, I don't know, but it meant a lot to me. Thank you.
