|re-created Nike ad|
Why would I go through all that trouble? Because I can relate. Thankful that I've grown up in a milieu where the size of my butt has always been a big +. However, I have been in company where people were very self-conscious about it. Seeing this ad was refreshing. As I work out, I'm finding that many of my clothes are beginning to fit differently. A bit more snug around my butt and thighs. I'm ok with that and have adjusted my "hip target" accordingly. I'm not trying to be the skinny mini I was in college, but a rounder, healthier me. So I've embraced what's changing for the positive and continue to work on the areas I know can be better.

Last week, for the first time since I've had my daughter (April 2011) I went to purchase a dress and felt it "lay" in a way that made me feel great! My journey continues even as I push myself and the workouts get harder. I have a goal. It's up to me to love my body at every stage.
