A few years ago, I was the most miserable person you could imagine. I was overweight, suffered from extreme anxiety and depression, and had horrible self-esteem issues. So when I met my husband, I couldn't believe he was actually interested in me—it was the best day of my life!
Today, I'm happy to say that I've lost 100 pounds, am finally enjoying life again, and my marriage has never been better! You can read all about what it's like to be married to a larger Muslim woman here!

Some people think that because I am a slim Muslim girl, I must be easy to control. But that is not true! I know what I want in life, and I won't settle for anything less. Marriage is one of the most important decisions you will ever make, so it's important to do your research. And that's exactly what I'm doing.

It's time to get over yourself and your ridiculous list of must-haves in a partner. No one is perfect, so quit being so picky and give someone a chance. Maybe you'll be surprised at what you find.

In the Muslim community, there is a lot of pressure on women to be slim. If you are overweight, it is seen as a reflection of your character – that you are lazy, undisciplined, and lack self- control. This is especially true when it comes to marriage. Many men will not even consider marrying a girl who is not slim.

And when we do start looking for a spouse, we're often encouraged to find someone who is stable and has a good job. But what if we don't want to settle? What if we want more out of life than just a husband and two kids?
