How do you feel about being what society considers "fat"? I used to hate my body which just seems to get bigger with every child I have. Time to stop being ashamed!! This is me this past weekend:

I was crowned Queen in the 26-40 age category in the Kings and Queens of the Crown beauty pageant. I beat a bunch of "skinny chicks". All 3 of my daugher's were also crowned Queen and my son was crowned Prince.

Queen is first place and Prince is second.

So yeah, be proud of yourself and your body. Thick is in!!

I just wanted to ETA that this is me this morning (before I brushed my hair and got dressed) getting ready for a meeting with a potential client. I took it for another thread.

Of my girls, my 5 year old is chubby. The other 2 are within the "norm". I didn't post this as a "I got a crown because I'm fat". I posted this to show that society as a whole is paying less attention to the weight aspect.

Although my 5 year old did beat out more than any of us. There were 27 children in her age category.

Being overweight is nothing to be proud of if it endangers your health.

if you and your children are healthy though, then shake what your mama gave you!

I find it amusing that the crown has an apple on it. Ya know, fruit ? that stuff we eat for health and to maintain a healthy weight....An apple crown , in a post about winning a beauty pageant despite your, um, larger size. Isn't that quite ironic?

Congrats.
