What Words Would You Use To Describe Your Body?

Poppy Patrizza asked an interesting question on Twitter this morning: "What would it be like to describe your body without using negative words?" Need a shot of body confidence? Read the responses!

"efficient", "strong", "useful". This is actually kind of hard. :/ tweeted Amber K.

creamy(i love my skin).... Soft(my "assets" are my fav feature). && strong! :) wrote RAEdeeohhead

And members are adding more positive body descriptions over on Facebook:

strong and flexible :)--Heather

I love that my body allows me to run and dance. My body is strong, capable, resilient, and SEXY! Embrace it all!--Sarah

Capable, fascinating, irreplaceable and essential :)--Karianne
