My Perfect Body

Frugalista Blog My Perfect Body

Here I go, taking off my clothes again for my blog.

I know. But bare (bear?) with me!

We are flooded with images of amazing bodies and then even when sometimes a body is not so amazing, there’s a barrage of comments to follow that are cruel and degrading. Sometimes from ourselves, sometimes from others.

As we put ourselves more and more out there- especially in the land of YouTube and social media, the scrutiny becomes even more so.

I wanted to show folks that even though I try to put my best face forward, the one with good lighting, a smooth complexion and an angle that maybe shows my jaw better than it looks in person;  that I’m absolutely flawed in many ways physically, and I’m okay with it!

Stretch marks, cellulite, jiggly arms. Hey, it comes as an entire package! But this isn’t about me, it’s about all of us and our daughters and our sons and that imperfections sometimes come from perfect circumstances.

If you want to know what I’m talking go ahead and watch my video and then embrace your own #myperfectbody.

    I find your third nipple very cool. I’ve got a crap ton of skin tags under the boobage. Good for you for making this video!! Sharing the crap out of you.

  2. This made me tear up. You are amazing and brave and I love you for posting this. I wish I had had a role model like you growing up. I look back at pictures of myself and I wonder why I thought I was so gross and ugly. My body has done amazing things and I think I can finally be proud of it.

    Thank you for this! I’m from German descent too (thanks, Mom!) and my arms are pretty fleshy! But you know, I’m at the same height and weight as you, with the same exact weight goal and after years and years of marathon running, my foot/ankle/knee decided to call it quits for awhile but my stomach still enjoys marathon eating. I’m trying to stay within a reasonable caloric range, but I still feel all flabby and flubby. I’d love to just be happy with who I am and how I look. I’d love to be thankful for not dying from Melanoma in 2013 and despite the nasty scar on my shin, I’m alive and healthy.

    I’m working on it. I truly am. Thanks for your encouragement and openness!
