Tv program dating plus size women
"To be at Fashion Week in New York and they are actually doing a curvy fashion show is just mind-boggling to me.

"Going into it, I knew it was a TV show, I knew it was a weight-loss show and I knew it was a dance show, but I didn't think I was going to learn so much about myself through the process," said the 23-year-old Duque, a contestant on the new show "Dance Your Ass Off."
