I just wanted to start a post (might already be one, but who even knows)about all of us young women and how totally freaking AWESOME our bodies are. I am a biology student, and I am shocked and awed everyday by things that our bodies do for us!
I love my body. I'm 5'6', I weigh almost 145lb,and have some reasonably newly acquired curves [Smile] I work with horses, if I was tiny, my body would not be as able to do the things I love with it.
I love dancing and running and riding horses. I also love enjoying something else my body was meant to do, sex. I love the way whoever I'm with enjoys my body, and I love enjoying their body. OI have endometriosis, which is a condition where your uterine lining grows outside your uterus. So, even though my body hurts me, and somedays I wish I could have a different one, mine is perfect the way it is <3
Let's hear it for all of our gorgeous, lovely, bodies, that do all of the things we love to do so well!

Lauren :)

I am 20 years old and i am also a biology student! Our bodies have such a great organization with every process. I absolutely love it.

I am 5'6 and my weight is 120 pounds. I am severely allergic eggs, so that takes out a lot of food from my diet. Sometimes I feel like I can trust my body. All the allergies and sudden paranoia about my throat closing up takes a lot out of me. But its the greatest feeling when you realize that you're okay. I also used to think i was pretty stupid when i was younger. i never used to do so well in school. but once i realized how good i was at bio, i realized that i can be something and be smart. So i've worked hard from there. it made me think about how the brain really works when you start to form goals. The sudden urge and hunger for happiness and success really makes you work hard and your brain open to lots of new things. regardless of my allergies and carrying benadryls, claritins, epipens and my hate for organic chemistry messing with my brain, (need to take it to fullfil my bio major!) i still and always love my body [Smile] [Big Grin]

I'm quite content with my body as is. [Smile]

I am 5'7 and weigh 135 lbs. Based on the overall structure and appearance of my physique, I would say that I am a mesomorph. As such, I have large bones, am muscular, and carry most of my weight on my torso. I think that I may be heavier than many of my peers due to aforementioned factors, but I don't care. I'm very healthy, and that's all that matters.

I also enjoy the fact that I can dress in a variety of styles and still look good. Due to my full breasts, I go well with clothes that emphasizes the cleavage. Also, my lack of the hourglass figure and my broad shoulders means that I can fit really well into shirts from the male department. I enjoy cross-dressing on occasion. [Smile]

A toast to my body and its uniqueness.

I am 5'1 and 110 lbs, and I am very petite. I wear clothes that I like, regardless of whether or not they flatter my figure. I have always been very fit and enjoy rugby, roller derby and running. I also ride horses and have an 18hh WB that I show in 1.15 jumpers, so I don't think being tiny has anything to with it! I love that I am small enough to ride ponies but fit enough to ride my giant of a horse.

I suffer from IBS and it makes my life very difficult sometimes. I feel stressed when I am eating in public or on roadtrips because I'm always scared I'll have an episode. It also makes me really tired alot of the time, and hard to put muscle onto my body because I have trouble digesting so many foods. I still love my body though, because of all the things it can do and the way it looks.

Freedom rise up for me
