30 Bananas a Day!

At the risk of sounding incredibly narcissistic, does anyone else....

.... find themselves constantly touching their super soft, baby-bottom skin... in public? Or catching a glimpse of your sunkissed complexion, bright eyes and just flashing a huge smile into the mirror? Staring in awe at the precise balance between bone structure and curvy muscle, thinking: "damn, the human body truly is a masterpiece!" ?


Maybe? Kinda? No? A little bit?

It's not that I consider myself exceptionally good looking or anything, but woah! Lately I just can't help notice how amazing the physical body looks/feels when the interior is in top shape. When all the conditions are right again. Especially when recalling the lifeless, crocodile-skinned, twig-limbed, puffy-eyed days. Throw in the fact that I feel giggly and exuberant for no particular reason- because it is just lovely to be alive- and voilá.

"Nature made beauty paramount with health....you can't beautify a corpse in the making."

Anyone else in Bananaland madly in love with themselves, or am I just vain and insane? :D Do share

Good for you!  You're still falling in love with yourself! Isn't that what we do with others...notice their physical beauty??  You go girl!  


It's funny you posted this Steph..

Two days ago I was in the bathroom right about to get to bed. As I was walking out I glimpsed at the mirror and just started laughing.. "Look at 'dis motha****er! I love this guy!"  XD

If we can't recognize our own beauty, we can never recognize it in others.

Much much love to all the beautiful people! =)


:D I can't help but recall Vicky's comment about you looking like Buzz LY... "I'd @#$% him!" ahahah you're beautiful inside & out fo' sho', Rob

Yes and that's what I love so much about the lifestyle- I don't look at myself out of vanity, I'm not checking for imperfections and comparing my reflection to those of the people around me.  I like the way I look after an entire life of feeling the exact opposite, and it's nice to not avoid the mirror.

It's also cool when people comment on how nice my skin looks.  Finally getting that "raw glow!"  It's nice to hear because we all put a lot of work(I use the term "work" loosely) into our health, here.  We've earned this confidence and the compliments that come with it.  

So it's not really about the way I look so much as how I love the way I feel so accomplished every day.

you reap what you sow. celebrate, we must! ;)

wow, congrats, pretty lady! keep rockin' it :)

I am sharing your experience !  what you guys say for me too , this is wonderful and i think its a HUGE topic about Loving ourselves and Liking ourselves which is gratitude for this mysterious wonderful gift (what we call life)

to stop trashing ourselves both from sad foods and from sad self thoughts is   well beyond words  it is something wonderful to experience .   

great that we can see here we are not alone and its happening to many many  and many more people

rawk on!  i love me i love my experiences i love my physical body i love where i am at and others to share 

thanks to fruit and who makes it

what is we are Loving ?    is it health itself ?  loving health ?  healthy organism loving organism 

Estefania, what an awesome thread. I love how you just "went for it." A+ for originality. :D

And yes, sometimes I feel like that. NOTHING wrong with appreciating your accomplishments (or god given awesomeness) :)



Thanks for the honest thoughts Steph! Love it! Golly!!! I did hear Vickie mention Rob resembling Buzz but not the last part!! Haha that's great! 

As a kid my mom would always catch me gazing at my own reflection in a window or mirror behind her.(instead of listening to her!) Ha, can't say I have changed much. Although it is a balance and a practice. For instance in the am when I  feel svelte and toned I will strut around in barely a thing... but in the evening with a tummy 6 months pregnant I don't feel called to the beach! 

ahhh the belly stretch at night is so amusing! and after some Zzzz's, like magic, its gone :)

This post and threads are awesome - thanks for the smiles. I just know how much I feel better and naturally right I feel eating this way . Not 100 percent but pretty damn close . Big kids to you all and thanks for sharing xx t
