1. I wasn't the most popular girl in school by any means.

2. It's a huge change for your body. You don't even want to look in the mirror after you've had a baby, because your stomach is just hanging there like a Shar-Pei.

3. Even I don't wake up looking like Cindy Crawford.

4. It's become another dimension to who I am. I don't think Sports Illustrated is going to be wanting me. But who cares? I'm at a different place in my life.

5. When you are getting ready to become a mom, being in love with someone just isn't enough. You need to think about whether he would be a good parent and raise your children with similar beliefs.

6. It's important for moms to have alone time. However, that's the first thing that goes on a busy day. Fortunately for me, because of my job, I have to find the time to do it. At least that's the way my mind sees it.

7. But I try to steal other moments. Sometimes I get up very early in the morning and enjoy a quiet house and cup of tea before the craziness begins. Other times, I'll take a quick walk on the beach. You can find peace in a few minutes.

8. Having children really changes your priorities.

9. The thing I like about my body is that it's strong. I can move furniture around my apartment. I can ride my horse... I can play basketball. It's a well functioning machine.

10. They were doing a full back shot of me in a swimsuit and I thought: "Oh my God, I have to be so brave". See, every woman hates herself from behind.

11. Richard doesn't really like me to kill bugs, but sometimes I can't help it.

12. In the studio, I do try to have a thought in my head, so that it's not like a blank stare.

13. Most of the reason I work out now is not for the external - it's for how I feel. I find working out gives me more energy. I started eight days after he was born.

14. I don't have to try to be perfect at everything.

15. Not that I believe you can have it all: I believe you can have it all, just not at the same time.

16. I always knew I wanted to have children.

17. I like to work. The self-esteem and satisfaction that I get from working makes me a better person, which makes me a better mom. I feel lucky because I have the luxury of working only one or two days a week.

18. Nobody in my family ever thought that I'd a be a model.

19. Watching your husband become a father is really sexy and wonderful.

20. I don't think makeup is rocket science or a cure for cancer.

21. The face you have at age 25 is the face God gave you, but the face you have after 50 is the face you earned.

22. I don't waste as much time at work because I'd rather spend it with my kids.

23. You start out happy that you have no hips or boobs. All of a sudden you get them, and it feels sloppy. Then just when you start liking them, they start drooping.

24. My breasts are beautiful, and I gotta tell you, they've gotten a lot of attention for what is relatively short screen time.

25. Our sex life has been ruined since the arrival of our first baby. We can't be so spontaneous because we don't want the nanny to hear us. We can't scream and yell like we used to.

26. Certainly Vogue was the total seal of approval, but Cosmo was up there. You had those and your cosmetics contract, and you were all set.

27. (Well, if you believed the media spin about) Monster, ... Hey! She's not just This Year's Blonde!

28. You know, I'm uh not very good. I might have a few tips for Michelle about how to model a watch, and hopefully she could give me a few golf tips.

29. I'm just so happy, because I can come home from a day on set and start posting on my journal, or if I have any energy left, I can turn my camera on and start having a live chat with people who are members on my site. Sometimes when I'm bored, I'll take a shower, put on my makeup and something really sexy, turn my camera on, and just give the people logged in a show they'll never forget. This is what I always wanted.

30. I have a simple, healthy life, which works miracles. I drink a lot of water, watch what I eat, and exercise. But I owe the quality of my skin to a cosmetic surgeon.

31. When you don't have anything interesting to do, you start thinking too much about what you don't have anymore. When you can appreciate fulfilling things like family, work, friends or the possibility of helping other people, you will have a focus. The list could go on.

32. I enjoyed my life, but I'm happy my times as a supermodel are over. I had a great time and a lot of opportunities. But I'm a mother. When you have children you see the world with different eyes, that's the wonderful thing about it.

33. For every thing you don't like about yourself, come up with something you do like....Once you start thinking in positive terms, slowly you'll begin to appreciate other things.

34. In my work, I've realized that "Cindy Crawford" is a product. I decide how to use that image. It's a business.

35. I've tried Botox, but it scares me. Plastic surgery is really scary, but as long as you dont use these things to change your face, I think its okay. If I put on a few pounds, it goes straight to my butt. Im sexy but Im not intimidating. I do have cellulite. So much of your life you spend trying to prove yourself, trying to make things happen, trying to get somewhere else. But then you get in your late 30s and 40s and realize life is pretty amazing right in front of you if you can just be present in it.

36. I feel like all those things I did over the years are paying off now. I never smoked, I didn't bake in the sun and I started taking care of my skin at an early age. I'm pretty happy with the way my face looks.

37. Among the abnormal conditions present in modern industrial society are excessive density of population, isolation of man from nature, excessive rapidity of social change and the breakdown of natural small-scale communities such as the extended family.

38. I'm fat, but I'm thin inside.
