October 6, 2014


Recently, I came across a post that blew me out of the water. Seriously it was the most disgusting combinations of words that I have read in a looong time.

Draft Card —

October 3, 2014

As you may have seen by now, two of our wonderfully talented and prolific Generals in the War on Fat, Angie Meadows and Dr. Deah Schwartz, are stepping down to focus on their own projects. They’re going to continue fighting the good fight by leading the charge in other theaters, and we look forward to our continued push toward victory. As a result, we’re looking for a few good fatties to fill our ranks. You don’t need to be an experienced blogger, just a voice and a perspective on life as a fat person. The process is straightforward, just check out our Join Us page to find out how you can enlist. [INSERT OTHER JINGOISTIC METAPHORS HERE]

When It All Ends, the First Ones to Go Will Be the Skinny People and the Habitual Grammar Correctors

October 2, 2014


There are times when I sit around and imagine that *all this* (the societal norms, the demands, the organized religion, the rat race, the status quo, basically western civilization as we know it) falls.

Amazing apocalyptic artwork of Yuri Shwedoff.

It all crumbles into a steaming dung heap of what used to be, leaving a lucky few remaining bastards holding all the cards and thinking about how awesome it’s going to be looking like a badass phoenix rising from the ashes of the end times.

Playing field, leveled.

Trigger warning: Discussion of anorexia and assholes who tell fat jokes.

Hiya Folks,
With the recent death of Joan Rivers, and many discussions around her type of insult comedy arising on the interwebs, I thought it the pertinent time to discuss an encounter with my favorite comedian that left a permanent bad taste in my mouth.

I’ve been a fan Craig Ferguson’s for about five years. I never watched him on “The Drew Carey Show,” but I discovered his late night show and fell for his comedy stylings during a time when I was going through deep trauma in my life. His silly antics, intellectual wit, and biting disregard for the go-to gags and lazy jokes of classic late night and other comedians always made me laugh, without fail. He was a storyteller comedian, weaving comedy into historical and everyday situations that everyone could identify with.

Weight LossFat PoliticsMy Boring-Ass LifeDiet Talk

This is my FFFinal blog post for FFF, and needless to say it isn’t easy for me to say goodbye. So you may notice a bit of rambling in this post because I want to try and squeeeeeeeze in as much as possible!

My reasons for leaving are entirely due to time constraints. There are just not enough hours in the day/week/month for me to sustain my private practice, my own blog, monthly schmooze-letter, family obligations, and the volunteer work that comes from my involvement in several professional organizations. This is not a new dilemma for me … I have had a refrigerator magnet in my kitchen for years begging for someone to please,

Falling out of love with Lane Bryant

Fat Fashion

I remember the first time my mom took me to Lane Bryant. It was the summer of 1988 and we were back-to-school shopping. I couldn’t believe there was an actual store that catered to fat girls and women. I was a size 13/14 at the time and for years it had been a struggle trying to find decent clothes to fit me.

Trigger warning: Frank discussion of weight loss surgery.

Confession time: a close family member got a gastric sleeve about a year ago. A very close family member, in fact. I see her less often now that we live in different states, but her physical changes are still evident. She has knee problems and her back took a major hit when she was younger. Now, after the surgery, she can do things physically she couldn’t before. She has more energy, she says.
