Heavier & Happier…

Michelle Gibson, a full figured woman who runs circles around her thiner counterparts, teaches 10 classes a week to full figured women.

Well it’s March 1st ladies, the last 2 months have flown by and it’s time to start shaping up to fit into the beautiful bold prints that are going to be around this spring/summer.  Before you know it, May will be here and you’ll realize you haven’t shed those extra pounds from Thanksgiving and Christmas.

I found this inspiring article in the Washington Post via Facebook a couple of days ago and thought it was worth posting. You’ll understand my post title once you read the article.  One of my many reasons for starting a blog was to help women no matter who they are feel good about themselves.  In my opinion, everyone is fabulous whether you are a size 4 or a size 20, it’s all about how you carry yourself, and more importantly are you healthy?  Being thin, does not instantly make you fabulous, or gives you an instant ticket to good health.  In the same token, being overweight is not good for your health and as you already know can lead to various problems to your overall well-being.

Dress appropriately for your body type, no matter what size you are, there is no excuse for being sloppy with your appearance.  You never really see articles posted in newspapers/magazines where they show real women working out, most print ads show size 4 models without any body fat lifting weights… yeah OK.  This article demonstrates the fact that you can be fit and agile no matter what your size and real women do work out.

Please take the time to read this article, it really is a good read and start your workout regimen NOW, even if it’s only walking for 30 minutes 3 times a week, every little bit counts.

Happy reading and work that body!
