There are a lucky few of us who believe that we have the perfect bodies and can wear anything we want. More power to you if you are, but I am not one such person. Knowing I have work to do, I sometimes motivate myself by imagining the sassy outfits I’ll wear or the bikini that I’ll run across the beach wearing while I splash in the surf under the sun, or the skin-tight dress that I’ll wear to a big party that doesn’t exactly exist yet. You know, ridiculous, yet reasonable, things like that.

But then I see things like the new Nicki Minaj video and I almost feel happy that my body does not belong in a butt-crack bearing catsuit. I realize that my new-and-improved body fantasies might get me into a slinky dress or bathing suit, but I don’t think they’d get me into a g-string thong on television. I’m not here to judge the choices of women with so-called “bangin’ bodies” (I’m no fan of that expression but “fit” doesn’t seem to cover it), but I just can’t see myself doing all of this hard work just to end up walking around half naked. Then again, I say this many pounds and perhaps a pair of butt implants away from looking like a video girl.

What would you do if you had a “bangin’ body”?

    I have a bangin body but I also have enough self respect to know that it’s not like a debit card I can whip out and use. I can’t request anyone respect me if I’m using my body to get me things, so the answer is…nothing. I’m just enjoying it because I’m not my body for what it is.

    Not to toot my own horn but I have a banging body and I usually cover it up…gets too much attention sometimes and I’m more than my body. I just posted the other day on twitter “more than my cake and a smile.” I embrace it at times though…my dresses are typically fitted but when it comes to work and school…I definitely go for loose fitting clothes because I don’t want to give the wrong impression. It is definitely a gift and a curse!! #teamhipsthighsCAKE !!! LOL I don’t use it to get anything from anyone though…I make my own money and I pay my own bills… #teamDegreeskeepmewarmatnight #teamindependent lmbo
