Checking In

Published August 13, 2010 by Fat Heffalump

Hi all,

Just a bit of housekeeping today, I have some posts coming up but life has been so busy, they’re waiting for me to get time to actually prep them up for you all!

A few little notes.

  • Please let’s not use the term “real women” in this space.  It’s a stupid term really, we’re all real, regardless of our body shape or size.
  • I have finally found what the problem was with my Facebook page, and by clicking the link over there on the right, you should be able to see it.  Come on over and “friend” me, I post heaps of links to interesting stuff there.
  • And for those of you who tweet, you can find me on @fatheffalump
  • If you are a woman with PCOS, please feel free to check out CystersUnited

So, let’s just have an informal chat hey?  What’s interesting to you in the world of body image, fat acceptance and self esteem at the moment.  Hit up the comments and we’ll just have a bit of a natter.

  • I go for a walk up a hill in my area a couple of times a fortnight, mainly just to thrash out some aggression and listen to shouty lady bands. I am getting sick of all of the people I walk past/jog past giving me a nod of approval, because obviously I am a good fat person trying to change my body.
    Think I gotta write a blog post about it!

  • I walked almost everyday. I smile at all the people I pass. It’s not a judgment. It’s a greeting. It’s saying I’m not the only person that goes for walks. A nod of approval might just be a sign that they are happy to see other people outside.

    • Sometimes it is a judgement though. I’ve had it before. A little more than a smile and a nod. It’s been a comment, or unwelcome “encouragement”.

      Not always, but yes, it’s there, I have had it too, just like Ally.

    • It feels different though, to a greeting. I think I just sometimes wish that my fat exercise didn’t entice either nods of approval or whoops and yells and heckling!
