So yesterday I visited Melissa Lion and I noticed that she had posted a picture of her bum. And I told her that it made me sad because I’m a really a big wuss and didn’t have the courage to do something so bold.
And so then she visited me and asked me nicely to post a picture of my bum.
And then I visited her and there was this post.
I started to get a little misty when I read what she wrote about all the self-loathing we do and how we should focus on our pretty parts instead of how much we hate our bodies and I thought “what the hell? I’m all in.”
We took several pictures, my butt and me.
We thought maybe we’d use this photo of my butt wearing jeans from a couple of weeks ago, but that would be taking the easy way out.
So we went to the panty drawer which was a challenge because it’s late in the week and we haven’t been keeping up with the laundry.
I’ve always felt that Bridget Jones and I are kindred spirits, so I figured I’d try her scary stomach sucking in panties worn by grannies the world over.
But ew! Not a good look for Renee Zellweger, not a good look for Crissy.
So we tried these, and they were okay. And we decided to go with them because like we always say, if you’re gonna go, GO BIG.
So we did.
I extend the challenge to all of you to take a picture of your favorite body part, allow yourself to see what your husbands, fiances, boyfriends, girlfriends, or lovers see in you, and post it on your blog, or in the comments section here. Hell, post it on your refrigerator if you want to, but do it.
It’s time we start loving our bodies and being proud of the prettiest pieces of ourselves.
