I was fat-shamed at Gorham House of Pizza

Fat-shaming me didn’t embarrass me. It didn’t wreck my day. It didn’t make me run for the SlimFast or to join Weight Watchers. It sure didn’t make me cry or ask myself, “what’s wrong with me?” It pissed me off. Yes! I was fat and I was pissed! This particular fat-shaming incident, and there were […]

Fat Shaming, Fat Acceptance, and people who can’t mind their own business

This video appeared in my Facebook feed. I love this girl. She is young, smart, self-confident and not trying to influence anybody to lose or gain weight.  On the other hand, she gets a lot of comments from people who are more interested in her weight than is natural. She isn’t exaggerating when she talks […]

Bad Fattitude! Don’t Hate Me Because I’m Fat!

There’s no denying that some people have a bad (f)attitude towards those whose weigh a lot. Some people are extremely prejudice and cruel towards fat people. I know because I was fat and I heard the comments and saw the looks. Some people hate fat people so much that even when we’re working to lose weight or […]

What does my weight have to do with your opinion of me

If you’re overweight you may find that you’re treated differently than people who are considered to be of a “healthy weight.” The higher the number on the scale, the harder you may have to sell yourself as a valuable human being with admirable qualities. Do you deserve that treatment because your weight is proof that […]

I say no to a tax on sugary drinks

If somebody wants to lose weight, or doesn’t want to lose weight, whose business is it? It’s not mine and it’s not yours and it’s certainly not the government’s. I think it’s up to an individual to decide if they want to pay to lose weight rather than have a tax imposed on their drinks that […]

Don’t be fooled by the amazing weight loss results you see online

The weight loss biz is full of scams and cheaters. That’s because people who want to lose weight can be an easy target for the unscrupulous. The war on obesity makes it easier than ever to cheat people who are desperate to lose weight. While it has become socially unacceptable to ridicule people for their […]

Why did I leave the fair hungry?

I can’t deny that I have a sweet tooth. If you read my blogs you know I like cake for breakfast. You know that until I became the mother of a precocious 5-year-old daughter I took off my unwanted pounds with a diet that consisted of 2 doughnuts and a cup of black coffee in the […]

Was that a compliment or complidis?

Most of us have somebody in our life who can”t help but complidis. A complidisser is the guy or gal whose mother said, “If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.” Unfortunately they couldn’t quite say nice things and they definitely couldn’t stay quiet. They figured out a way to disguise the […]

Well, excuuuuuuuuuse me! Sorry asking to box half of my meal is such an inconvenience!

Oh boy! What do you think about this? Dining out can be a challenge for those of us whose weight goes up much easier than it comes down. If we only eat out a few times a year for special occasions going for the “full experience” won’t upset our weight loss/maintenance efforts. We can enjoy a […]

The “Mother Load!”

Lots of mothers know exactly what I’m talking about when I say the “mother load!” The load of weight many women gain when they become (or are becoming) a mother. Women should gain weight during pregnancy. Even women who were overweight when they became pregnant should gain some weight for the health of the baby. […]
