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.
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
Megayoga by Megan Garcia
A great many of these bloggers are also on Twitter.
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the studies about health and weight – what they actually say, how they were conducted, who funded them, et cetera; no longer updated but a great information source.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.
