Give Me Fat Serenity–Petrina and Overeaters Anonymous Petrina was taught when she was young that her body was a problem, so she spent much of her life trying to solve it.

Episode 61: That Shrill Pool Party and Making Fat Community in Your Town

You’ve definitely heard about Shrill on Hulu, but if you haven’t, now is the time to use that free trial Hulu is always pushing. The show, based on the book by Lindy West, starring Aidy Bryant (and other just-as-amazing fat babes), is so good. The best episode by far, though, is number 4. The pool

Face Your Fears (Or Don’t–You’ll Be Fine Either Way)

#Goals with Miranda of The Plus Life

The beginning of a new year doesn’t mean that much, but I like to make yearly goals. Don’t call it a resolution if you don’t want to–there are so many negative diet culture-y connotations– but I still make them. Not achieving them won’t break me, but I like thinking about what I’d like to accomplish
