I see these threads worried about shoes, or how gross spandex makes them look, and I'm amazed at how many people feel they are expected to be eye candy for the general population. I mean, get real, If you were meant to enchant the general population, then you would be paid to. I am a large, opinionated woman, and I get my best responses when I live my life to the best of my ability, not when I am obsessing about my apparel or body type or philosophy.
My advice to all, including myself - is to get over yourself, no one is thinking all that hard about you or your clothes - though we all think getting fit is quite commendable. So, carry on, and do what you love!!
