The Week in Fat Blogging

Filed under: Uncategorized — Francesca @ 6:22 am

Here are some links, from our fellow plus-size bloggers, which will entertain or enlighten (or both)!

Plus Size Clothing Scoop has the pictures to prove that “There must be some kind of love affair going on between Nikki and IGIGI.” Indeed, Nikki Blonsky is quite fond of Igigi clothing. Francesca says: If you find something that works for you, then stick with it! I, myself, have bought ¾ of my wardrobe at the Women’s Petite section of Talbots. Work it girl!

Big Fat Deal tells us that “You can lose weight by talking to your fat cells. It’s just like growing a philodendron!”

In a post lauding the work of Barry Glassner’s The Gospel of Food , Kate Harding asks: “WHO THE HELL CAN USE 50 HANDFULS OF CILANTRO BEFORE IT GOES BAD?” Indeed, not Francesca.

The online magazineVenus Diva has an article about how not to feel self-conscious at a gym, and touches on Francesca’s idea of self-ocentricism! “Most gym members are very focused on their own workouts and rarely notice when new members join, which means we are creating the situation in our minds due to lack of self-esteem and inner confidence.”

Too Fat for Fashion extols the virtues of the new Anna Scholz collection.

And, Full Figure Plus posts her own very useful list of speedlinks here.

Happy internet surfing!

xoxo, Francesca

  2. I really do think it’s true about exercisers not noticing other people at the gym. I really don’t htink anyone notices me when I’m there other than to perhaps recognize me as someone they’ve seen before. And if they DO notice me, I hope they’re thinking “good for her, exercise is an important thing” rather than “oh god, I hope she doesn’t break the elliptical”.

    But I’m there for ME, not for anyone else, certainly not for anyone else there…
