Body Love Resources

I’d like to thank everyone who commented, Tweeted, or Facebooked (is that a verb now?) about how much they loved my last post.  Welcome new readers – I’d like to say all of my posts are that awesome, but I’d hate to mislead anyone.  *laugh* I talk about a lot of things here in addition to fat girl stuff, such as:

  • My novels (my primary focus right now)
  • Spirituality (I am developing an e-course called Becoming a Spiritual Nomad, which you can read more about via the link up top)
  • Ahimsa living (my continued journey toward veganism, which is complicated by my body and food issues)
  • Cooking (I post occasional recipes)
  • Things I Love (which are rather random)
  • The Vampire Diaries (my favorite show, which I’ll be recapping this season so I’ll post about it once a week max)
  • Playlists I create for ecstatic dance (only sporadically these days)
  • Whatever else I feel like ranting and/or raving about at the moment

At any rate, I hope you’ll stick around! I tend not to reply to comments thanks to some unfortunate experiences I’ve had this year, but I do make an effort to at least read them all.  You can also follow me on Twitter and Like my fanpage on Facebook – the FB page is mostly blog updates and novel-related stuff, and my Twitter is even more wildly random than the blog.

Now then! On with the post. As promised, here are some books, blogs, and other resources I love that are devoted to body positivity or Health at Every Size. This list is by no means comprehensive – I only put resources on it that I have read or viewed and enjoyed personally.

Books

Health at Every Size by Linda Bacon – absolutely essential reading for larger people (or anyone) who wants to live a healthier lifestyle without obsessing over weight.

The Body Sacred by Dianne Sylvan (Yeah, I’m totally plugging my own book.)

Fat!So by Marilyn Wann

Lessons from the Fat-o-Sphere: Quit Dieting and Declare a Truce With Your Body by Kate Harding

Big Big Love, Revised: A Sex and Relationships Guide for People of Size (and Those Who Love Them) by Hanne Blank

Blogs

A great many of these bloggers are also on Twitter.

Dances With Fat

Body Love Wellness

The Rotund

Two Whole Cakes

Fat Nutritionist

The Adipositivity Project – gorgeous photography of everyday large women (and periodic series of large men, yay!).  Mostly nudes, so not safe for work.

Junk Food Science – analyzing the studies about health and weight – what they actually say, how they were conducted, who funded them, et cetera; no longer updated but a great information source.

Shakesville – a progressive feminist blog that tackles body politics and all sorts of other cultural stuff.

  1. Thank you for these resources. But I really wanted to thank you for the 10 Rules!!!! It’s nice to find someone who preaches what I believe and how I feel about body love, no matter what your size is. Your book on body acceptance is now on my wish list. You rock socks!!! 🙂

  2. Thanks for sharing all of these wonderful resources. As a young woman who is trying to look inside and outside herself to find acceptance I really appreciate it. I can’t wait to check out all of those lovely books (I already own and love the body sacred) and blogs. Never for a moment believe your words don’t reach out and effect thousands of people. They do and I am proud to say I am one of them. Please keep up the excellent work!
