This was the original image for FBG! You know, back in the day.

This post is part of our FBG Birthday Week celebration! Check out all of the special four-year birthday posts and huge giveaways here!

Last year for our birthday, we shared our thoughts and yours on what it means to be a Fit Bottomed Girl. We also gave a top-10 list of signs that you might be an FBG. This year, we thought we’d mix it up with a fun, interactive fill in the blank. So, we hit up our Facebook page and Twitter to ask readers to complete this phrase: “I knew I was an FBG when ____.” The answers? Simply awesome, hilarious and touching.

    I had to get a tetnus shot at the ER after I crashed my mountain bike. The ER tech on duty had to give me a shot in the butt. Afterwards, he told one of the doctors on staff the story about how this “ripped” girl came in all tore up from a crash and when he rolled her over, she was ripped on the back side too! I just happened to know this doctor and she relayed the story to me while laughing
