Many women, after giving birth, usually gain weight. This is also due to the fact that metabolism slows down when we reach adulthood. Our pre-pregnancy weight and figure is somehow difficult to achieve especially if we have babies and or children to attend to. Somehow, we shy away from exercise and dieting, as we also need to be healthy for our children and our family. When we do, the tendency is we also add numbers to our clothing size. Many women end up wearing plus size dresses. But nowadays, full-figured women and ladies receive equal treatment; and the society now see them as assets and beautiful in their own ways. Clothing manufacturers have also made trendy plus size clothing to cater to women who are plus sized. Some women too order for custom made plus size clubwear.
It is a good thing now that in our figure-conscious society, plus size women are no longer the inferior group. Many groups have launched programs and various activities to help plus size women gain back their confidence and be treated equally in the society where they belong. Being plus sized does not mean that you cannot do the things you used to when you were still slender and slim. It is just a matter of how you bring and carry yourself, your self confidence should speak for you, no matter what size you are.
Our “mommy” group has a new project, it’s how to keep fit or lose pounds. A couple of moms started this on our Facebook group because they think that it will motivate more of us when we know that we’re not doing it alone.
I know it’s not easy to find plus size clothing back home. When I was still working there, that used to be the most common problem for my friends who’ve exceeded the “average” size. Most malls have limited choices and honestly, most of them don’t even flatter anymore.
Though because of technology, shopping for plus size jeans is much easier because even though the stores are in another country, my friends back home can just pay a little extra for shipping for clothes that know will really do good for them. Gone are the days that they only bought clothes because those were the only ones on hand. The world is now their mall and I’m so happy they’re enjoying shopping more now. But from what I heard, some of my friends have trimmed down a lot so I’m sure they’re no longer looking for plus sizes at the present.
I’m happy that our group started this project. Even though I’m not plus-sized yet, it can definitely help me just be fit and maintain my current weight and body. I know there’s a bigger chance of sticking to this program because I have friends who support me 24/4 throughout the world.
