I can't help you at all with the Taylor guitar. But you have to have a guitar that is comfortable. If you don't practice is not going to a pleasant experience and, eventually, you are going to start dreading it.
I'm a smaller guy and just bought a 000 size and it is very comfortable. I love it and love practicing with it.
Good luck on finding something similarly comfortable for you.
