About The Goddess
Fat and funny with sensible shoes is often how I describe myself.
I was a fat kid, a fat teen and I am a fat adult. I have tried most of the popular diets and plans, a few of the diet fads and even a few completely harebrained schemes. I’ve fasted, I’ve abused laxatives and I’ve cried. I don’t blame anyone for my size and while I don’t wish to be the fattest person in the room, it’s not the end of the world either.
I don’t want to talk about pounds lost and gained or magical quick fix diets that are akin to starvation. I want to talk about getting healthy and eating well without beating myself up for the odd treat and I want to live my life without waiting for that magical day when I will be thin and all will be well with the world. As one average-sized friend pointed out to me many years ago -” life isn’t perfect just because you’re thin”.
I also want to source and review products that are of interest to me and other people of size. It’s been my experience that many products are just not made for big girls or are not that easy to find. I understand economies of scale and that it just isn’t prudent for many businesses to offer product lines that fit everyone, but perhaps I can help find some that offer special orders or businesses which cater specifically to people of size. If you’re looking for something like a step ladder, exercise equipment or some sexy unmentionables let me know and hopefully we can source out what we need and avoid those retailers who simply cannot deliver suitable product.
