Aspiring Fitness.

Anytime I have expressed my desire to do exercise to my friends, the one question I’m always asked is, “you’re small, why are you trying to lose weight?” or “are you trying to fit into your dress?” I know we all get some reactions based on what people think you need or don’t need. Some…
