More To Love teaches plus size women how to learn body-acceptance and end dieting for good. 

"You're not THAT fat."

Rachel Estapa

"You're not THAT fat."

I've heard it from people smaller and larger than me. And every time I hear it, I want to shake the person and say "Seriously!?"

Even from some within the body acceptance movement, I've been called not large enough to speak to body image or plus size issues. I guess because I straddle the size threshold I must have no clue what shame or stigma feels like?

One minute I feel like I belong.The other, like a stranger in the own space I thought would welcome me. 

Throw my love for yoga and fitness into the mix and I'm a paradox! 

Both don't understand..."what side is SHE on?!"

I've spent my whole life trying to find a place to belong. And you know what? I've realized the ONLY place I belong is right in my body and in the MTL community I've created. 

I'm not going to apologize for my body, for what it can or cannot do, what it looks like, goes or doesn't go through. 

My body is RACHEL sized. That's all I know. I'm home.
