I originally was scheduled to be on the Morning show with Mike and Juliet but it ended up with Rachel from The F-Word and Mo from Big Fat Deal. I got to be in the audience. They took on a doctor and someone who I won't gave a name but let's call her Mer. Both of them were fabulous and when Mer tried to talk over Rachel, Rachel talked right over her. Overall a great segment that I wish was longer.
The media seems surprised that fat people have blogs. We are supposed to be lazy, aren't we? It just shows the power of the net. Unlike mainstream media, we can have a voice here.
Rachel, Mo and my blog aren't the only ones out there. Here are some great ones:
Big Fat Blog -- This regularly updated blog discusses current news, articles and issues for the large-size person
Pretty Pear Lots of women of different sizes talking almost exclusively about clothes. Some topics discussed include finding plus-size Halloween outfits, sleepwear and hot new clothes.
Show Me the Data A blog that post articles questioning the sources of the obesity "epidemic."
