Plus Size Appreciation

A long time ago I came across a term that these days would be considered derogatory. It was about what was considered a kink. The term was fatty lover and indicated men who prefer their women well padded.

We have come a long way since then but still not far enough. Those of us with curvaceous figures are still spoken of in whispers though slowly we are becoming more mainstream as some of our members have become models and movie stars.


This image back in 2015 sparked a lot of negative comments, I wonder if it would spark as many this year. Somehow I don't think so.

In 2018 we had come a long way from there as this picture shows:


This blog talks a lot about positive body image. The picture above is only one of many on the internet celebrating body love.

And this year we actually had a beauty pageant!

So the next time someone says something to you about your size just look them in the eye and smile! Cause even if they don't know it you know you are beautiful! And there are a lot of online retailers who specialize in beautiful clothing for the bigger woman.

Two of my favourite are Rosegal and Rosewholesale. Recently a third as joined this list they are called Rotita who carries some of the most beautiful clothes for plus-sized women I have ever seen like this little beauty:

Love your body, love yourself!

National Make a Friend Day

I am not very good at making friends or keeping them it seems. I do not go outside much, in fact I hardly leave my home unless it is family related. That makes it hard especially since friends expect you to come to them at least once in a while and I find I can't.

If it were simply a matter of laziness it would be understandable but it isn't. Some days I can't even open the door to let in some fresh air. I do not know where the fear comes from I just know that that is what I feel when I think about going outside most of the time.

Agoraphobia: Triggers for this anxiety may include wide-open spaces, crowds (social anxiety), or traveling (even short distances). Agoraphobia is often, but not always, compounded by a fear of social embarrassment, as the agoraphobic fears the onset of a panic attack and appearing distraught in public.
Causes: Genetic and environmental factors Symptoms: Anxiety in situations perceived to be unsafe, panic attacks Treatment: Cognitive behavioral ther…

Women's Heart Health

February 1st - 7th is Women's Heart Health Awareness Week and I felt it would be remiss of me not to include some conversation about it here given that the professor suffered a heart attack a bit over two years ago and that I am a prime candidate.

Let us start with why I am a prime candidate - Obviously being 100 pounds overweight puts me in the high-risk area immediately. Add in High Chloresterol, physical inactivity, diabetes, post-menopausal and over 55. Since only two of those are needed to put me in the at-risk category that I have six means that I am very high risk. The only way it could be worse is if I still smoked or drank and still lived a high-stress life. Thank goodness for small miracles.

Not sure where you stand? check out this checklist. This checklist and the other pdf's linked here are from the Women's Heart Foundation

Do you know what the prescription is to lower the risk factors? It's simple join the 10,000 steps a day club. That's it! walk 10 th…

National Pizza Day

I am celebrating today! Several things actually!

1) I like Pizza & I have a perfect reason to make one. It's National Pizza Day! Its going to be a simple one though made with an everything bagel with pizza sauce, pepperoni & cheese. I might even add some onions and peppers for a filling supper.

2) Getting the pantry of my dreams. The one I bought is similar to a cupboard that sat in the house of one of my Uncles for as long as I could remember. It was a bit more delicate than the one I bought though. It looked a little like this one.

3) The Professor as confirmed that we will be going to Ottawa for Valentines, I am over the moon! It won't be the week I wanted but it is going to be four days & three nights.

It means that I can explore the Byward district a bit more than I did a few years ago. Happy Dance!
