Yoga is not about becoming slim or beautiful. It is also not about trying to be 'cool' or 'hippie'. It is, in fact, about making peace with your body type and learning to not give a damn about standards of beauty that are not set by yourself! Yoga is not competitive; quite the contrary, in fact. It is the life-affirming realization of perfection in imperfection; the feeling that one is complete as they are.
