10 Plus-Size Fitness Influencers You Need to Follow

Big girls being healthy, fit and fun!

For a long time, there was (and, well, still is) this stigma that plus-sized women are lazy, unhealthy and unwilling to exercise.

And...that's just not true. Personally, I love working out (when I can fit it in between writing, feeding myself and behaving like a functioning adult, that is), and I've reclaimed the word "fat" and proudly say it to anyone who asks.

So, I like filling my social media feeds with women who don't just inspire me, but look like me too. Because size does not equate to beauty and/or health — and should never be a metric by which we judge anyone.
