I wanted to try and show the many facets of being curvy and living a happy and full life;ultimately, just being at PEACE with yourself. I struggled for years, but I’m finally at a good place mentally and physically. I work out, and am focusing on toning up some areas, but am no longer miserable with myself. I found the key was to not focus on the clothing in a smaller size, but on the clothing in the size that flatters my body. It sounds silly, I’m sure, but it changed everything. Don’t buy size to “motivate” or bribe yourself to fit into it, get the real deal!
I was also told that “California is no place for you, you’re not stick thin, you’re gonna be miserable!” and well, let’s just say they were wrong. I fit in just fine. :)
Weight: 196-200 (your weight fluctuates every day! never focus on that number!)
Size: 14-16 (depends on the brand)
Height: 5’7 1’2”
