What about love?

I just had a birthday, not a milestone, but I'm getting up there (44 gasp-jk).  I've been working out with my T25 at home, I like the results, but I found myself reflecting on the things I think about my body, even while working out. I realized, I'm not always very nice to my body or about how I look.  I reflected on the conversations I have with other women, friends, etc. and when I stop to think about it, a lot of us let those little negative jabs at ourselves pop out without even thinking about it.  So when someone comes along to say otherwise, we feel compelled to slap the compliment away.. like "Lana, you look so pretty today" and Lana's reply is "Oh, I just threw myself together this morning, no biggie".  What the heck is that?  How about just say "Thank you"???  You look pretty, damnit! Many of us are so hard on ourselves about our bodies and how we look as we age.  I am at times.. I don't like the dark circles under my eyes, but I get compliments on my blue eyes all the time.  Where is this disconnect?  Why do we negate our worth?  Oh, don't deny it, you've done it too.  We'll tell you we know that we are beautiful, inside and out, we are proud of our accomplishments, the working out, the healthy eating and then knock ourselves down about our tushy not being the "right" size, or having bigger hips than we want ...
