Muscles that “Pop” –Can you get them?
by Kayla

You know what I mean? You see a women, she has angles, muscle cuts, and definition popping out everywhere! Then you wonder, “could I actually look like that?”

Take Teresa Tapp for example. Every time I am with Teresa, I admire the angular cuts of her body.  You can see the muscles activate and move and it looks beautiful! Then I see me, — rounded and padded looking.

It’s not that I’m fat, — not at all. I just have a rounded-ness to me.

Even when I weighed 20 pounds less than I weigh now (yes, I’ve really been that thin), I did not have the chiseled look that I love.

The more people I work with, the more I am convinced that not everyone can look like that.

Honestly, I think it has something to do with our personalities and the energy that we live our lives in… it is a part of our nature and the way God made us.

Women like me have a cute, round and fun look to their body. They look amazing just like that!  In fact, my husband has said that he always thought that I had really pretty shoulders because they are round and smooth.

Other women may have a longer, more elegant look… smooth and graceful. They are fit, trim and beautiful, — but not extremely defined.

Still others are like the angular, cut woman.  They would look good on the cover of a fitness magazine.

Then you have the angular in a different way. Not with many cuts, but more lean and symmetrical looking.

Have you noticed this about women? Did you see how each kind of beauty is beauty indeed? 

When I took Carol Tuttle’s "Dressing Your Truth" course, I had no idea what freedom I would get from understanding and appreciating the different types of beauty. I can go in the mall now and see a huge poster of a woman with flawless skin, and not feel a twinge of “I’ll never be beautiful like that” because I know I won’t, and I don’t want to be.  I love being me!
You know what?  These different body types are addressed as other names…Ectomorph, mesomorph, endomorph, and any combination of those. The bottom line is, you won't look like anyone but you.  

Have you ever wished away some part of you?

  1.  Absolutely, I have wished away lots of parts of me! I don't know any women that don't.
    Growing up during the "Dorothy Hamill" supershort hairstyle fad (I don't look good in short hair) then the Farah Fawcett feathered hairdo fad, I really hated myself because I couldn't do those styles. Trends come and go but the damage stays around long after!
    I'm still fairly new at this "liking myself"  and I struggle with it alot but here goes. I'm learning to be comfortable in my own skin, thanks to your encouragement, because it's the only one I will ever have!
    I like my curly hair
    I like that I'm short 
    I like that I have brown eyes

  2. I used to hate being tall.  Until I got to college, I had never met another woman taller than me. Now I have a daughter that's 6 ft. tall
    Now, I can say I enjoy being tall.
    I love my green, cat-shaped eyes.
    I like that I am relateable.

  3. I love my hazel eyes ( hubby said they are what he fell in love with first)
    I love my thick, healthy strawberry-blonde hair (just wish it was as blonde as in my teens)
    Love my sincerity and that friends listen because they know I care (a childhood friend just ordered the T Tapp breast cancer survivor set to revolutionize her health and manage lymphadema)
