Hello fellow Amazonian woman. Got your message. Thank you.
It's funny about the whole "big boned" thing. I was always told that too and thought of myself as "big boned". But as the pounds are coming off, I'm realizing that I have kind of a medium frame. It's really a trip to try on a size "medium" in the non-plus sizes and have it fit perfectly. Single digit pants are cool too.
I think, looking at old photos, that I was really carrying a layer of subcutaneous fat around with me, well distributed everywhere on my body so it made me look more linebacker-ish. Bra straps don't dig into my shoulders anymore. Now those shoulders don't look so "big boned".
I wish you well on your weight loss quest. Please let me know if I can help.
