Welcome! Start here!

Hello, beautiful!

I'm so happy you're here!

FatIsNotABadWord is a lifestyle guide for fat femmes.

This is not just another lifestyle blog. You won't find weight loss stories or diet advice or 'how to look skinnier' tips in these pages! On the contrary, you'll find fashion, travel and health stories, as well as personal essays and oodles of resources exclusively for people who are body positive, working for fat liberation, and who simply have had enough of diet culture making them feel that they're never enough.

I want you to be comfortable exactly as you are.

Sound good?

Finally, a little about me:

~I believe people of all genders deserve to look good, feel great and have fun. Have your cake and eat a cupcake too, baby! I work with individuals and businesses in numerous ways to uphold and share this belief-- mental health coaching, copywriting, business consulting and blogging. I've slowed down since my disabilities have gotten more severe, but my conviction in my beliefs has never wavered.
~I'm interested in visual arts, cats, burlesque and intersectional feminism. And I loooove sparkles.
~My work has been featured at xoJane, Kind Over Matter and multiple other blogs. And I'm The Selectively Silent Child's media coordinator (we're returning from hiatus soon!).
~Like many of my readers (maybe even you), I suffer from am coping with chronic illnesses, most notably ME/CFS (also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), and Panic Disorder.
