Thank you. I love that show.
We are our own worse critics. There are so many people out there who are not happy with themselves. There are the skinny but sad ones or as you put it "normal" but sad ones....."normal" but happy ones...fat but sad ones...fat but happy ones.
Society ...culture...the media, has always been taylored towards the "normal" sized people. We are all meant to believe that "normal" is to to be skinny. That only skinny people can look hot, sexy and fabulous.
It's still a long road but , the shift in the paradigm is starting. Beautiful is not just limited to the "normal" stuff we've all been used to.
If a person is not happy with who they are , then no amount of weightloss, dietpills, liposuction, skin whitening, trips to Vicki Bello and pretty clothes can make them feel any better about themselves. We can't rely on these outer sources for that. We can't give up on ourselves, we have to stick up for ourselves because no one else would.
It appears that you are content about yourself because of your weightloss. I'm happy to hear about that. Good for you. We all can be beautiful and fabulous regardless of what size. I'm sure you are still the same beautiful and fabulous person, with or w/o the extra pounds. Thank you again for your insight.
Anyway, back to plus sized fashion , check out this line from Ashley Stewart's summer collection and I think another designe whose name I don't know and I am so sorry
