I'm just a fat gal with a blog and an opinion. Well, lots of opinions.

Rad Fatty Alert: WithoutScene!


Biased, much? Perhaps, but I also like shining a light on people doing really good and heartfelt work. And WithoutScene is doing just that! You may know her from her posts over at or my inaugural podcast. I think I’ve even linked to her new blogs once before, but fuck that…I want everyone to know what she’s doing because it is kicking my ass regularly with its goodness!

BadassFatass: Not only one of my favorite blog names ever (because it truly is), but also some really great stuff! This week she posted a newsletter she wrote for a friend’s niece and is sharing it with all of us here. It was so good I was left teary-eyed, no lie! I think it is so amazing that this may turn into something more. Because seriously? There just aren’t a lot or enough (are there any?) positive body messages out there for kids and teens. There just isn’t! And I think she really set the bar high for how this could be done. I so look forward to more on this endeavor.

FinessingTheFuckYou: Another fab name, right? Oh man, I love a good “Fuck You” and she does, too! Today’s post really struck me though. She addresses the stereotypes of fats and food and shares her own inner struggles with saying “Fuck You” to the moral way of thinking in regards to food. She so inspires me, even when we’re both too busy doing our work things to chat, that I had to make something for her birthday. Okay, well, I had wanted to make it and then conveniently her birthday was last month so it all worked out! Ha-ha! But I gave her a special kind of “Fuck You. ”

Please, check out her blogs and keep an eye on ’em because writers/bloggers get inspired by their readers and commenters and I know she has so much more to share with us!

    I loved the newsletter. God, I wish someone had given that to me in about the ninth grade. It would have changed everything.

    You are such a fab friend. Thanks for the shout out. I’m glad if this newsletter can help any kid out there, even if after I posted it, I thought, “Oh crap, I put some personal stuff in there!” Ha!

    Also, I love that you posted the Fuck You that you gave me. Seriously wish you could have seen my face when I opened that. <3ya
