A couple of weeks ago, I first watched the video to “All About That Bass”, by Meghan Trainor, which is supposed to be the feel-good, body positive anthem of the summer: Meghan is adorable as is her voice. The beat is catchy and makes me want to get up and “shake it, shake it like… Continue reading All About That Skinny Shaming
I’m late to the party but wanted to sit back and watch it unfold a bit before posting. Over the last week, there’s been a lot on the media over Adam Richman of Man vs Food fame as well as Man vs Food Nation, Amazing Eats and Adam Richman’s Best Sandwich in America. His newest… Continue reading Adam Richman: Man vs Words
It’s a few days from the official start of summer but the temperatures are already in the low to mid 90’s with humidity to boot. Boys and girls, it’s HOT and that’s not going to change anytime soon. Between the heat beating down from the sun, the heat coming up from the subways and the… Continue reading The Right to Bare My Arms
I’m not a fan of the Kardashian/Jenner clan and tried to avoid this past weekend’s hoopla about the Kim/Kanye nuptials. However I read something yesterday that, if true, is quite sad. Apparently Kim’s younger brother, Rob, skipped out on the wedding because he was embarrassed about his weight: “He wanted to be there, but he… Continue reading Why the Hate, Mate?
Dear Neighbor, I walk past your car and hardly ever fail to notice the two stickers on it. One warns “No Fat Chicks” and the other proclaims “Baby Princess on Board”. I’ve been wanting to post this letter on your windshield for some time but I know there are lots of other proud, new fathers of… Continue reading Open Letter to My Fat Hating Neighbor
Little trick-or-treaters who reside in Fargo, ND had better beware of the Grinch who wants to steal Halloween. Instead of candy she wants to hand out the following: This is horribly wrong for so many reasons. First of all, unless she’s psychic, there is no way to tell anyone’s health just by looking at him/her. … Continue reading The Grinch who Wants to Steal Halloween
Warning: spoilers ahead My fiance rolls his eyes and retreats to his man cave on Wednesday nights at 9:30pm Eastern but I haven’t given up yet on “Super Fun Night”. Although it’s still more cringe inducing than funny, I will admit to laughing out loud when Kimmie bonked a guy in the head during a… Continue reading Super Fun Night… when does the fun start?
Over the last week or so, many have weighed in about Melissa McCarthy’s appearance on the cover of Elle’s November issue. If I hadn’t already read that it was Melissa, I wouldn’t have recognized her under a voluminous trench coat, teased hair and slimmed down face (photo shopped for sure). The consensus is that, while showcasing a lovely,… Continue reading The cover up on Elle’s cover
For those who are currently under a rock, Rebel Wilson, the Aussie actress who stole her scenes in “Bridesmaids” and “Pitch Perfect”… and yes, she’s fat… has a starring role in the heavily (no pun intended) promoted ABC show, “Super Fun Night”. Rebel portrays Kimmie Boubier (pronounced BOOB-ee-yay.. get the joke? Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.),… Continue reading Super Fun Night? Eh, not so much… yet.
Welcome to my “official” fatty blog although I’ve sounded off on fat related issues in “Rising from the Ashes”. Hopefully there will be more raves than rants in future posts but this, boys and girls, is most definitely a rant. Yesterday Metro New York ran a story about how diabetes-related deaths have hit an “all-time… Continue reading Avoid diabetes and live forever!
