Niecy Nash Loves Her Jiggly Parts

Do You Like Your Jiggly Parts?

Dancing With the Stars has been a catalyst for many celebs to lose weight or develop healthier habits; Kelly Osbourne lost 25 pounds while on the show and Jennie Garth went down a few jeans sizes. But Niecy Nash told Life & Style Magazine that she loves her body just the way it is and isn't looking to the show for weight loss.

"I like my jiggly parts . . . I like my curves — I don't have a problem with any of it, and my boyfriend doesn't either! It's more about the inner transformation for me. I want to become better and stronger and more fulfilled as a person, and I can do that with a little wobble in my booty, honey!"

I find Niecy's body confidence inspiring, especially when many women — including celebrities — struggle with insecurities over the way they look. I also appreciate that she's trying to send a positive message to women who might be watching her on the show, telling Us Magazine: "I don't have a plan to conform to Hollywood at all! I like the thickness. I danced tonight for every girl who's not a size 2."

I'll even cop to it and say: I am not always 100 percent happy with my jiggly parts. There are some days when I wish I was tighter and more toned, but that's part of the reason I work out. I don't feel like this most days, mind you, but I do have my moments. Tell me . . .

i love my thick butt, hips, and thighs! who wants to be a wafer anyway? the majority of men are not attracted to stick-thin women. they don't look like women, they look like prepubescent boys. as long as you eat healthy and exercise, you're doing the right thing.

Niecy Nash is one of those unique women that has a natural sexiness about her and carries her weight well,meaning she doesn't look fat just sexy.

Yes, I do. I'm with Tlsgirl -- I love them when it comes to my bosoms (and my bottom, to balance out the bosoms).

yes, I love soft, jiggly parts, there's something so comforting and feminine about them. One of the hardest aspects of trying to gain weight through a healthier diet whilst keeping up with my love of exercise is that nothing is soft anymore.

I like the way my body looks, but I'm always working on it for my health. And yes I also looove my jiggly parts (lol) and so does my boyfriend. I used to hate my heavier thighs and butt, but ;) I think they're awesome now.

We're females, we're supposed to jiggle, right? Women are fleshier than men, so of course we're not going to have EVERYTHING toned. It's one of the things that separate us from men.If you eat right and exercise regularly, then your body is what your body is; it's not worth obsessing over or hoping to change. Also, when I began to exercise, I started missing my junk in the trunk (it was nice having a portable seat cushion).

I made peace with my jiggly parts long ago...mainly because every woman in my family is jiggly in the same place, which means I'd be fighting against genetics. Genes: 1 Me: 0 ...gotta love the genes.

I think certain clothes would look better on me if I were a little more toned overall, but my "jiggly parts" tend to get more attention from guys than, say, my nice toned calves. As long as other people love my body the way it is, I do too... if I were too jiggly to land hotties I'd be forced to reconsider :)

Only if it's my boobs. Everything else needs to stay still.

I don't like jiggly parts personally, but I LOVE that she is embracing herself! There is really nothing wrong with jiggly parts in general as long as you're still healthy.

I don't think they're mutually exclusive. I love my body the way it is, but I'd like to see less jiggle in some parts as well. I don't obsess over it, I just see it as a nice side effect from my healthy living ;)

I work out and run to banish my "jiggly parts". But I admire her self confidence, it is inspiring. She might find that with all that training and dancing she will become more toned without even wanting it.
