Ugh, I’ve been sick with a head cold for the past three or four days, so blogging has been the last thing on my mind. I do have some things I want to talk about, but I’m not at my most articulate right now, so I think I’ll just have a little bit of a link roundup for you all of interesting stuff I’ve found around the traps on body image, fat acceptance, positive living et al. I’ve posted most of these on the Fat Heffalump Facebook Page.
I’d like to do this once or twice a month to share some of the fab stuff I find.
Ok, let’s have a looky at what we’ve got here:
On health/diets/weight loss:
Dances with Fat talks about things people do on their doctor’s advice to lose weight.
Linda Bacon, author of Health at Every Size has some great excerpts from her book.
A thought provoking piece from Feminist Fatale on the dangerous lengths that people will go to to lose weight.
On the “Obesity Epidemic”:
Big Liberty talks about how the “Obesity Epidemic” is a moral panic.
Over on I Love Fatshion I talk about what Fatshion means to me.
I fell in love with this dress from iGiGi (but can’t have it cos I’m broke!)
Other fab fat acceptance:
On Spilt Milk, a fantastic piece on bullying.
Over on Oh the Places You’ll Go we see a showcase of, and interview with the stunning Teer Wayde, pinup and plus-size model.
I just want to give some link love to the wonderful Barbara over at Fat in a Free Country who is relatively new to fat acceptance but is doing a fabulous job.
So there’s a healthy portion (see what I did there?) of some of the things I’ve found fabulous and interesting around the traps over the past week.
Feel free to share something you’ve found in the comments below.
