Welcome to Big Girl, Big Adventures!
I’ve been larger than other girls my entire life. I was the chunkiest little beginner ballerina on stage. I remember using a ladder to start on the uneven bars in gymnastics because my instructor couldn’t lift me to start. I was the last person to finish the “mile run” in gym class. I was the biggest girl on my High School Varsity Swim Team.
I was always aware I was bigger than other girls. I just never realized it mattered.
All of a sudden I was afraid of trying new things in fear of being “too big.” I wasn’t used to that feeling. I needed to live my life like there was no such thing as “size” again.
I’m just a Big Girl…looking for a Big Adventure.
