Default What is your idea of an ideal body?

I decided to start losing weight at the beginning of the month. Since then I have found one way to stay motivated is to describe where I want to end up. I imagine the ideal body looks different to different people. Even at the same weight a person's body composition can vary. So this gave me the idea to start a new thread on the topic: what is your idea of an ideal body? The phrase I keep repeating to myself is "fit and lean". When making food choices I ask myself if it is consistent with that mental image.

In a few words, mine would be "no excess". I don't like bulging muscles or fat rolls. Too much of either is unattractive to me.

I would like to be between 150 and 160 but I want to be muscular and curvy, too. Fitness model type. We will see.

Striving for that "ideal" body, might not be the best choice.

I'd love to look like Cindy Crawford. But dang, I'm to short!

At my current weight, that I have maintained for several years, I still have a bit of a pot belly, due to having huge twin babies, and being genetically destined to have a pot belly, and I have big boobs.

I've had the big boobs forever. I really hoped that at this weight they would shrink. No such luck. I'm top heavy.

However, all of that is ok! I have fantastic strong arms, I have great muscular thighs, I also have not butt! Flat as a pancake.

I've come to terms with all of it. I will always be top heavy, but that's ok. I will always have big ole "man" arms, I love them! I will never have *booty*. That's ok!

I chose to love the body I have, and not fret over some unrealistic, photoshop dream of the "ideal" body!
