Fat Fit

Today while scrolling through Facebook I came across an amazing photo gallery by Rebel Circus and I just had to share. Some say, never mind, MOST say size does matter. However, for the "Curvy Girls Who Nailed Yoga Moves" size is like age...nothing but a number. The gallery got me thinking about fitness vs fatness. Who says fat girls can't be fit? Yes, I know all about heart health and excess weight around the mid section and blah blah blah. But that's not what I'm talking about. For example in my younger years the worst day of my year, every year, was the mile run fitness test during gym. I typically didn't mind gym, in fact I liked gym, but on this day I HATED gym. Nonetheless, in order to pass I had to suck it up and run that mile. Every year, I barely passed the requirement but every year I wasn't alone. In fact one of the stragglers alongside me was the smallest, most petite girl in my school. Every year she was finishing right with me, if not behind me. Needless to say, the Rebel Circus gallery made me feel WONDERFUL about my BBB life and even reminded me of an important fact that I often forget as I struggle with my weight. That fact: health and fitness is not just about a size!!! 

Since I was inspired...I hope you'll be too. Here's the link to the full gallery and a few of the amazing yoga enthusiasts are pictured below! Eat your heart out 😁
