You've probably already heard of straight shopping: plus size gals shopping in regular size shops.This tunic was bought in my lighter days. I used to weigh 100 pounds lighter (yeah, I know sounds morbid right?) about 6/7 years ago. I was a size 40/42 (UK 12/14), sometimes 38/40 (UK10). Even back then I was considered a plus size girl. It seems so bizar for me now. I used to walk around thinking how fat I was (read: wrong, ugly, not beautiful). But in fact I wasn't fat at all. The irony of it all is when I gained the weight I finally started rejecting negatives comments of the outside. I started loving me for the woman I am. And I'm happy.
I'm not advocating to go now and gain 100 pounds to be happy. I'm just saying that being thinner didn't mean necessarily a happier me. I'm so glad I stopped punishing my body with extreme dieting and exercise. I treat my body with much more respect. Do I think I'm perfection? No, perfection is a myth. But if I had to change one thing I would want a better physical endurance. Other than this I'm fine.
