I have a couple more t-shirt pictures I'll be using but this week we're taking a break from that. Another Suburban Mom wrote a post commenting on the ideals of "realm women" stemming from the ordeal about the "plus size" model showing her less than toned belly in Glamour magazine recently. She then came up with the idea to do a "Flaws" HNT this week and invited other people to join her in displaying something we wouldn't normally show off for HNT.
I find the subject of flaws to be an interesting one be the physical or the non-physical flaws. In this post, I'll only be touching on my physical flaws. In thinking about what to do with this post, I came to realize that for the most part, I'm okay with my physical self for the most part. The flaws that bother me most aren't things you can physically see or touch. The idea here is pictures though so in thinking about the things I'd like to change most physically, I wound up feeling rather silly admitting to the features I find flaw in. Flaws are so subjective though. I can look at something and see plenty wrong with it but then my boyfriend, a friend or someone comes along and finds me silly in my thinking. They see the same thing and don't see a thing wrong with it at all. Along with the subjectivity of it, we're also usually our own worst critics as well. I know personally, no one is harder on me (about any and everything) than I am on myself.
I know a lot of people would post a picture of their stomach, thighs, legs or hips. I'm fine with my stomach. I like my wide hips and am proud of their shape. I like my long legs with my muscular calves just fine too. I'm okay with my feet. I'm happy with my arms and hands. I like my cheeks. I like my lips. I like my back. I love my boobs. I pretty much like most of my body honestly.
So what do I consider flawed? I do have a few things I obsess over.
I made a slideshow of all the pictures of body parts that I find flaws in.
The first one is my forehead. I think it's the thing I am most self-conscious about honestly. It's huge to me. Which is why I like to wear hats a lot and keep my hair layered so I always have shorter strands to brush over my forehead.
The next four are shots of my nose. I wish it were smaller.
The next one is my neck. I prefer leaving my hair down and around my shoulders. I HATE having to pull my hair back because that leaves my neck exposed.
The next two are shots of my ears. I know, who considers ears flawed? Me. I think as a general rule that ears look slightly odd. I used to get teased for having big ears by kids in school when I was young and I still think they're too big. I like having my hair down to keep my neck from being exposed but also because it keeps my ears covered up too. Plus, I just look better with my hair down, lol.
The last two are pictures of my ass. It's shapely, since round is a shape but I really wouldn't mind it being smaller. Some days, I'm okay with my ass but most days, I'm wishing it was less out there, lol.
