Do Tell: What Part of Your Body Are You Most Insecure About?

No matter how beautiful or perfect you may think someone is, I can almost guarantee that they have their own set of insecurities just like you and me. While the female body is a beautiful form no matter what shape or size, it's really all about the way you feel inside in regard to how you look on the outside. And even though it's commonly just in our heads, most women I know have at least one part of their body that they wish could be smaller, tighter, leaner, prettier, or just plain different from what it currently is. Sound familiar? If so, do tell, what part of your body are you most insecure about?

legs. it'd be nice if every part of them was thinner. skin. being short makes any weight gain look like more than it is. birthmark on forearm.

Two things: my legs and my skin. Both have bothered me since middle school and no matter what I do I don't like either one. I don't have acne at all, I actually have really dry skin, eczema and under eye circles. My main problem with my legs is that, although I am fairly tall, they are short for my body and are where I hold most all of my weight... and not in a pleasant way! Not to mention that I am possibly the only person I know who bloats in their thighs. Sigh.

My body shape. I'm like a pear shape that's flat in the back but round in the front. I'm flat on top and in the back, but my stomach is poochy and I have love handles. I have really wide hips, so my ass is just wide and flat. I also have saddlebags that I can't get rid of. I'm underweight but still a pear--it sucks.

I hate the fact that I get adult acne. Luckily it's not that bad...I can go for months without it, but then it will stick around for months. It's usually just a few, but it's like those huge things that start out as uncomfortable lumps and turn into spewing volcanoes. I also have tons of scars all over my body from when I had chicken pox when I was 14. I especially hate the ones on my bottom lip. Oh, and my undereye circles. So basically my problems are with my skin. Which is funny, because some people have told me I have great skin and I laugh. I guess it's just because I'm two inches from the mirror when I'm looking at myself and they're not that close. I'm surprised no one else has mentioned skin.

My boobs and my tummy. My tummy is where all my weight gain goes, it's flabby looking at the moment and not a lot I do is budging it! Ah well, if perseverance doesn't overcome this issue. I'll settle for being flubby. I also have issues with my boobs, since my boy told me he'd like them bigger (to an unreasonable size. Freaking F! hell no!) I've though they were a little small and a little flat. I'm a C and thats not puny but..

My teeth. My legs. My ass. Oh, like every woman then... Not my stomach though. It remains reasonably toned when I gain weight because I'm a pear shape.

My abs/stomach. That is were I gain weight and deal with a fatty layer. Ugh, I hate it since it makes me look out of proportion with the rest of me. I also don't care for my face right now; dealing with acne. Yeah, I'm definitely insecure.

My legs, but especially my thighs.

My stomach. While I'm kinda proportionately fat all over, I'm most dissatisfied with my middle.

Thank you Jude!!!! :D I love running even if I don't do it as much as I should, so that will be good for the aerobic part.

My tummy and love handles have to be the worst, they seem to blob out not matter what I do. My fiance tries to make fun of my butt (it has dimples) but I think it's cute and perky, and the dimples just mean it's got personality. Besides, it's cushy to sit on!

My leg, and part of my butt. I have port wine stain and I hate looking at it. It covers my whole leg and half of my ass.

Muirnea, I swear by backwards and forward lunges, as well as plies. But in order to tone and slim, you'll need some fat-burning aerobic activity as well.

Um thighs and hips thighs always seem fat to me and it's like there is no exercise that tones your thighs (any ideas?) And I don't like my love handles even though they aren't that bad and I have wide hips. I actually LOVE the Keira Knightley/Audrey Hepburn look, not that anyone is bad or anything if they don't look like that, everyone is pretty in their own way, of course! That look just happens to be my favorite. I agree with others that that look is elegant and beautiful, so I wish I had thighs/hips to fit that look, lol. Oh and I agree with lawchick: "it just seems like women appreciate different types of female bodies more than men often do. I know I shouldn't base how feminine I feel on "what men think," but that's tough!" I'ts like women appreciate beauty so we see the beauty in any kind of body and men only appreciate sexuality, which is scientifically just one kind of body, one that promotes youth and baby making abilities. :/

My thighs. They're big, which I don't mind terribly, but it's the cellulite all over them that I absolutely despise. I could work out all day long and it will still be there. It comes from my dad's side of the family because my mom (and everyone in her family) doesn't have an ounce of it!
