I was just listening to a clip of Beautiful and it got me thinking.
Every single one of you I have seen a picture of is gorgeous, and I know Tom and the boys tell me they think I'm "pretty/beautiful" but Ive never felt that way except maybe twice, when I was much thinner.
Do you think you're attractive? And I do NOT mean in that conceited I'm the best stuff on earth crap, I mean do you actually think your pretty?
I've always had SUPER low self-confidence with my looks. I can go on and on here listing the bad things about my looks that I always focus on. But then I thought I can't be the only one who feels poorly about their appearance.
So....what is apart of you, that you think is perfect as is?
This may be strange, but I actually love my nose and ears. They are just well proportioned.
And like I mentioned in another thread, other than the saggyness I actually am happy with my boobs as well.

I honestly don't think I am at my age now.. Need to loose a bit of weight.. I thought I was when I was in my 20's..
My favorite features are my eyes, they are light brown and almond shape and my hair because my hair is so full. I have a few grey hairs and my friends all tell me it's pretty gray.. Don't know what that means cuz it's icky to me..
Nicole - I'm happy with my boobs too.. My boobs change with my weight.. When I'm at my perfect size, they are size C and when I gain a bit of weight they get bigger, up to a DD.. DH does not mind.. lol
The past 3 years or so is the first time I've my own skin for the first time since I was a kid. I'm not afraid of what others think about me to the extent I used to be. I used to hide who I was because I was afraid people wouldn't like it. Really silly looking back. The fact that I'm just me right now, I think is beautiful. It makes it easy to look in the mirror and be happy.
I grew up to be confident with myself and love the skin I'm in.
I do think I am, But I am not a vain person.... I feel like I just have good genes bc my mother and grandmother are gorgeous in my eyes
I do feel however that Ive BEEN a lot prettier than I am now... I feel "sexier" now that I am older... but I had a better figure, and better skin when I was younger.
I think Ive grown into my face more though....
I have days when I feel prettier than others, but for the most part I feel pretty in general. Sure there are things that I wish were better, but that's a dangerous road to go down and so I just focus on being happy with what I have. My identity is not in my looks, (insert bible thumper) it's in Jesus. My entire focus has shifted in the last year. Not only do I have more love for myself, but I am finding it easier to love others who in the past I would have completely written off.
