Are you seriously upset by the comment? She gave me a look that made me nervous and reach for my mace, when I told my girlfriend she was plus size like it was a curse word.” It doesn’t define who you are” I said  just what size clothing you wear.

I know women who will scream to the gods that they are not full-figured because they don’t shop at Ashley Stewart or Lane Bryant. Ladies it’s ok. Do you know how many woman secretly wish they could be a solid 8 or 10?

I was once a size 22 and through hard work and determination I lost about 100 pounds and was a size 10. By hard work I mean faxing, emailing and phone calls to my insurance company and by dedication I mean trusting the doctor who removed half of my stomach. I cheated, I had gastric bypass surgery in 2009 and I did it not because I hated my fat self. I did it because I was unhealthy and at 26 years old couldn’t walk my son to school around the corner without running out of breath.

I know women who are the size I use to be  and they have a clean bill of health and are exercise goddesses, women who participate in runs, do yoga and eat healthy. They are just plus size women. So I paid my deductible and went under the knife for my health and I’m still a size 12, still Plus Size (PS). I’m a happy, confident and oh so beautiful plus size lady. Girl embrace your size 8, you just made it in to our exclusive PS club. Lucky you!

MY WAY!

What’s on my mind…. I really want to write how I feel on my blog and not what I think people want to read and since I feel like people are going to read if they want and scroll past if they want I’ve decided I cannot please anyone but myself.

Having a discussion with a woman I admire for her ability to leave her job and start a business with her husband, we were discussing my blog and what people want to read. She went in on truth, that people want gossip and drama and such. My stomach started to turn as I thought about what I needed to do and how much I dreaded doing it and then I said. That’s not my thing, I can’t give ya’ll gossip and drama every blog not even most of the blogs that ish plain tires me.

I really just want a plus size platform.  I want to bond, supply jewels of creativity and knowledge and create with like-minded women. I’ve decided to give my blog my raw thoughts. My only concern is am I proud of it. Read, Scroll Whatev’s….. or comment and let’s get it.
