Summer Fun For Plus Size Moms

Why do we, as plus size moms, continue to deny ourselves fun experiences with our kids?

Yes, there's always a chance someone will be rude and if that happens below are your two options for how you can react…

1. Allow that comment to swallow you whole and refuse to ever put on a swimsuit again.
2. Allow the comment to sting for a moment but quickly shake it off. That person is obviously just misdirecting their own insecurities upon you. Go back to having a blast with your family in the sun.

That's it! It's really that simple. The truth is only you can provide someone with the power to get under your skin. You're worthy of a pleasurable swim and your kids will cherish the memories you'll create together. Not to mention how much safer your kids are while within your arm's reach.
