What makes you feel great about your body?

April 30, 2009

At a recent discussion group meeting, I asked the participants to write down their answer to the question “What makes you feel great about your body?”. I suggested an activity, a pose or an outfit as possible responses, and this is what I got:

Dancing – any kind and any time and anywhere

– Anonymous

Sleeping in my underwear
Solo dance parties in my room
Eating what I want to eat – even if it’s cake for breakfast

– Carolyn

From Britta:


I feel great about my body when I walk around just wearing my sports bra (and shorts…) after exercising

– Anonymous

I like how I feel after a good swim or bike ride

– Chloe




When I’m wearing my favorite jeans and a tank top

80’s dance class!

– Anonymous

There are two related things that make me feel really good about my body – wearing dresses, and shopping for dresses.

– Jill


(wearing my) purple v-neck tshirt (and) olive colored skinny corduroys

– Hunter

I like looking the mirror at the gym when I do shoulder presses and seeing the muscles in my arms lift heavy weights above my head.

    wearing great clothing.
    lately I’ve been noticing that I feel much better about myself when I emphasize my voluptuousness, instead of wearing things that make me feel “skinny.”

    Bustin’ moves.
    Flipping my hair.
    Milk and cookies.

    Brushing my hair – or when people I know like stroking my hair! (People I don’t know stroking my hair, that just makes me feel creepy about everything)

    Going for a hike
