  • Some Things To Read

    The Fat Nutritionist has an excellent, and sadly useful, post titled “A little 101 – I get to exist.” It is okay to be fat, because fat people already exist. Fat people have existed for a very, very long time. Even if all of us tried, not all of us would become permanently thin. Fat people exist. We… Continue reading

  • Kitchen Heroes

    The man of the house made dinner tonight.  Not fancy — a steak stir-fry and garlic bread — but colorful and crunchy yummy.  It’s not uncommon, either.  I work longer hours and I have the longer commute.  A friend was over for dinner tonight and it was comfortable and normal.

    I’m sorry if this offends anyone, but I don’t necessarily care about New York’s proposal to ban larger-than-16oz-sugary-sodas.  Partly it’s because I’m not affected; I live in Seattle and haven’t even sampled non-diet pop* in years. I am skeptical that it would make fat people thin, naturally, but I think it would be more likely… Continue reading
