The results are in! Many of you participated in Fit @ Heart’s Love Your Body Challenge, which encouraged everyone to find one thing that they truly love about their body. Once something was picked, each person was to give a reason why they love this particular part of their body and had to the choice to submit a photo as well. This whole subject of loving your body came up upon viewing a clip of Victoria Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio giving her reason on why she loves her body. Her answer? Because it gave birth to her daughter. Her favorite body part? Was it her amazing legs, her flowing hair, or her perfectly toned stomach? Nope, she chose her hands. Why her hands? Because she can play the piano for her daughter. It is very reassuring to see a beautiful model pick something endearing to love about her body. While living in a world of constant stereotypes and certain expectations to meet, we women often pick out our flaws before we see the beauty that we all truly behold. Below is a list of all the readers that participated in the Love Your Body Challenge. It is beautiful to see these women celebrate their bodies and truly love something physical about themselves. These women did not pick something to love about their bodies based on someone else’s opinion, but rather their own. Check out all of the readers below and see what they love about their body.
“I love my freckles! I used to resent them, envying instead the smooth,
tanned skin of what seemed like EVERYONE around me instead of my pale,
spotty skin… and I am even middle eastern! What happened?! But now
instead of viewing them as a flaw, I love that they make me different.”
“I love my legs because they are strong and withstand all the pressure I put on them.”
Sometimes we never realize how much we are blessed until we take the time to notice. Instead of taking a challenge in order to examine ourselves to point out our beauty, let us daily take the time to admire what God has given us. Rather than focusing on the flaws that we see in the mirror, let us focus on our individuality and the time and effort that God put into creating each and every one of us. Who knows, a so called flaw to you may be beauty to someone else.
