Me in the gym on vacation! Dedication? Maybe 😛 

I have embraced that I will possibly be plus-sized for the rest of my life, or at least by society’s standards. I have been on this health kick for almost a year now, starting in June 2014 when I was cleared for activity after having my daughter.  It has definitely been a roller coaster, but after trial, error, quitting and just pure out frustration, I am on the fast track to dropping weight.  Now, I have really started to dig deep into what I would like my body to look like, and how I would feel.  I have come up with the conclusion that I love the way my body is shaped, and I would like to be more solid (muscle wise) and have a smaller midsection.  I have big hips and a big butt, and I actually love those two things about me.  I have somewhat of an hourglass figure, so I want to keep that. Because of this, I realize that I will always be considered a “plus-sized” girl.  And I have finally realized that I am ok with that!
