Big Blogging Women – BBW

I seem to have a need to begin new projects. I don’t always have the energy or social personality to take them as far as I would like to see them go. What I do have is endless ideas and some of them really are good. Even if it is just me saying so.

I’d like to start a directory for BBW, large sized women with blogs. Why? Well, because I like to read them myself and it would be nice to give each of them a place to connect, find each other and inspire each other. I already have a great WordPress plugin to run the directory from. It does need a bit of a tweak but nothing difficult. So I am going to begin adding the blogs I already know about from my own looking around and my digging for BBW sites at Scoop.it. If you find this directory, you are welcome to join. You can submit your blog through the WordPress plugin and I will review it (to make sure it’s not someone spamming their way in) and then add it.

I decided not to do this. But, if someone wanders into this post and is interested in taking up the idea I would work with someone else to do it.

Large Size Women Linked to Penis Size in Men

I was searching for links about large size women for the BBW Life and Dating topic. I like to find positive, good, optimistic links. The sort of site or post I would read myself.

Anyway, during my search for links about large size women, at least 50% of the search came back with links about penis size. I find that pretty ironic.

As a BBW/ large size woman, I do face men who become angry, ranting and downright foaming at the mouth with comments about fat women. I don’t know where they get such rabid hatred for people they don’t know. It must be based on a fear of becoming fat themselves or the fact that they really do like big women but can’t admit it. (I don’t claim to understand people who attack others without provocation so I really don’t understand the hatred some people have for fat people, especially women).

But, isn’t it just too ironic that man’s greatest fear is so linked to man’s biggest negative outlook on women? I could put it into smarter words but it’s after 2:00AM. I just wanted to write this, as a note to myself, before I go to bed and forget about it all.

Adipositivity – Dude Week

Adipositivity –  (Twitter link).

The Adipositivity Project aims to promote size acceptance, not by listing the merits of big people, or detailing examples of excellence (these things are easily seen all around us), but rather, through a visual display of fat physicality. The sort that’s normally unseen.

The hope is to widen definitions of physical beauty. Literally.

The photographs here are close details of the fat female form, without the inclusion of faces. One reason for this is to coax observers into imagining they’re looking at the fat women in their own lives, ideally then accepting them as having aesthetic appeal which, for better or worse, often translates into more complete forms of acceptance.

The women you see in these images are educators, executives, mothers, musicians, professionals, performers, artists, activists, clerks, and writers. They are perhaps even the women you’ve clucked at on the subway, rolled your eyes at in the market, or joked about with your friends.

This is what they look like with their clothes off.

Some are showing you their bodies proudly. Others timidly. And some quite reluctantly. But they all share a determination in altering commonly accepted notions of a narrow and specific beauty ideal.

Bookmark adipositivity.com and check back often, as new photographs are added regularly(ish). And please help spread the message. The Adipositivity Project: Changing attitudes about the aesthetic validity of big women, one fat fanny at a time.

I looked at a lot of photos on the site. But, I loved this one best of them all.

Squashed Fat is Still There

If you sit for a long time, until you feel your butt has become flat. Why does it always seem to spring back once you stand up again? It’s really disappointing. Think how great it would be if you could just squish your fat off. Roll down a hill and get rid of most of those other annoying rolls. Sit down with a coffee and flatten out that giant butt. Give a few hugs and get rid of all that arm fat. Have your kid sit on your lap and walk away with thinned out thighs.

Why doesn’t it work that way? Think how much more affection everyone would share if you could squish off/ away your fat cells.

Welcome to FatBloggers.net. This site has been a while in the making, but it took a post from Carlos Whittaker and some conversations with several of you in the blogosphere to really inspire me to get this thing done.

The premise is this: Any time I’ve been successful in losing weight, it’s been because I’ve been accountable to somebody else for it. The more accountable I am, the more weight I lose. It’s as simple as that. This site is for anybody out there who is trying to lose weight to join in and share in that accountability. It’s a two-way street.

Ways you can get involved:

  • Become a contributor here and write regular posts pertaining to your weight loss journey.
  • Comment on any of the posts and share your stories and experiences
  • Link to us from your own blog and let others know about FatBloggers.net

So there you have it. Put down the cheeseburger and fries, put on some walking shoes, and let’s all do this thing together.
