I Am Plus Size

I'm not 'losing' weight.

I've 'lost' weight.

I've lost weight as a byproduct of what I have gained, the realization of my self worth and wholeness...independent of all else. 

I don't know what the future holds, I might lose weight or I might gain weight but to me it doesn't matter.
 
It's not about the weight for me, not three years ago, not now, and not ever again. 

I don't fit in a society's box. 

I am a  size 16, heavy weight and I'm healthy and fit.  I could prove it, but I don't need to.

I am free and happy and have a relationship with my body I will hold up proudly as an example for my children and for every woman the will listen to me talk. 

I enjoy my fitness practices...most days I can't wait to go to the gym, or trampoline or yoga mat. 

I don't have cheat days or cheat meals....I eat what I want,  when I want to.  The trick is,  I want to eat food that makes me feel physically well. 

God made me.....and he made me good....so amazingly good just as I am.

Why in the world would I fight to change what doesn't matter, when I have everything that does?

FREEDOM became available in the moment that I chose it.  I choose it NOW. and NOW. and NOW.  Every single moment.

I love this big and beautiful body of mine, even with all its stretched out skin.  It serves me so very, very well.  It can do what I never thought it could.  It has  took a beating, and come back again...so loyal...so ready to respond in the moment that I listened. 

I AM PLUS SIZE.....I am big and full of passion and hope for a world where we are free to be all that we are.  Where our relationships with our bodies are joyous and full of wonder and constant growth towards our possibilities.  A world where true health, in mind and body are role modeled for our kids, so that one day a generation will forget "not being good enough" ever happened.

Great post. Everyone keeps asking me what my goal weight is...and you know what, I don't have one. I have goals that I want to meet (for example, some physical challenges I want to be able to do) and that will be the test for me. I love the freedom of NOT being on a diet but rather leading a healthy lifestyle. Again, great post I can relate to!
