Like many before me, I wanted to commend you on creating such an inspiring blog. All my life, I'd been told by my slim mother that I was 'just a bigger girl', and had never thought any differently...until I met my boyfriend of 6 years, who told me that was ridiculous and that I wasn't 'big' at all--if anything, I was petite with curves. For so long, the biggest influence in my life had had me believe something that wasn't true, all because of society's views. I'm 5'1 and 38-27-39. Thank you.
