list of positives, list of negatives

Today, instead of being negative about our bodies and ourselves, let's be positive and critique ourselves less harshly. I know it's unrealistic to expect to be completely positive and have that "love yourself!" attitude all the time, but let's try to think that way today for once. :)

So I will make 2 lists, one about my positive traits, one about my negative traits.
You should make these 2 lists, also. :) 

5 Things I Love About Myself

1. My long, straight hair (past my boobs, almost to my belly button) that I think is beautiful, sometimes.
2. The gap between my thighs.
3. My ability to find cute clothes.
4. My strong love for the people in my life.
5. The fact that I'm reasonably intelligent.

5 Things I Dislike About Myself

1. Lack of hipbones showing.
2. My temper.
3. Lack of ribs showing.
4. I need more self-control.
5. All my imperfections.

Intake: 800 calories
Burned: 500 calories (playing tennis! Very exhausting, but I loved the workout.)
Net: 300 calories

I weigh 106 pounds now!!! Down 4 pounds from my SW, 11 pounds away from my GW. I'm getting there. 95 pounds, here I come!

Anonymous- I think dance is beautiful! Dancers are so graceful and strong, and I admire you for dancing. Thank you so much for your comment and good luck on reaching your GW! I'm positive you can do it.
Maddi- I've never played softball, but it sounds like a great sport and an amazing workout! Thank you so much for your kind words. :)
Sofia- Dancing is gorgeous! I love ice skating, but I'm not very good at it. I'm sure you're amazing at both. Thanks for your comment!
GraceyJ- Thank you so much for commenting! :) I'm definitely going to put thinspo on my phone.

Thank you for reading this post! I love you all! I hope you have a very good day and that you love, or at least appreciate your amazing traits, today. :)


  1. This is such a great post. We are infatuated with the negativity of our lives, constantly pointing out our imperfections, that we forget the good things that fill our lives <3 Thanks for posting this.

  2. I'll try this! Whenever I blog I usually point out my own imperfections... It'll be a nice change to blog about the stuff I like about myself!
    Thankyou! ^^

  3. Wow! Very good idea!! I love it :)
    "The gap between my thighs.", I would like very much to have it :(
    "My strong love for the people in my life.", this is one of the most important thing in our lives, :D
    "The fact that I'm reasonably intelligent.", great!! You are intelligent as well as thin (106 pounds, CONGRATULATIONS!): you're a real and perfect princess :D

  4. 106! congrats! you can do anything you set yourself to!

    I'm split on the "love yourself campaign"-
    on a good day: I love almost everything about myself, especially the imperfections
    on a bad day: I hate even the things that are undeniably good about me

    I'm jealous of your gap. I think that's real success.


Don't be shy, leave a comment. :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!
