Worth Your Weight

April 11, 2008

Kudos to you!

Filed under: fat acceptance — worthyourweight @ 12:51 am

I would like to thank all the fat acceptance bloggers, readers, commenters, and lurkers. In building this community, you’ve exposed me to ideas that have helped me reclaim my life and my body. It’s hard to express how thankful I am for that.

I also wanted to thank Fat Fu for taking a chance on a new kid and adding me to the Notes from the Fatosphere feed. I am certain that had she not, this blog probably would not have been read even once. Notes from the Fatosphere has not only made my own FA blog-reading very convenient but also it’s helped give a shape to the FA community (“yes, round is a shape” ;)).

I’d like to give extra props to the bloggers that update frequently. I find it difficult to keep up with my own goal of posting weekly. So color me highly impressed that there are those of you who do so several times a week.

(Just felt like showing some love after Worth Your Weight turned six months old.)



  1. Right back at ya! And happy 6 months! Here’s to many more.

  2. I love this blog! Even though I was dropped from the feed without a word of explanation, I still think the Fatosphere feed is a really great thing which connects like-minded bloggers to other like-minded bloggers. Feeds are great. I’d like to thank FatFu for the opportunity of being on the feed (for a little while), but especially Rachel from the-F-word for being the first FA blog I read, opening my eyes to the movement. I want to thank meowser for having AWESOME post after awesome post; Paul over at BFB for having a kickin’ forum; and Sandy for being the scientific backbone of the movement.

    Cheers! :)

  3. I read what you write, and I’m subscribing to most of the blogs I read on a daily basis (including BigLiberty) so that I can read them when they post something new, instead of having to check them all every day to see if something new has been posted (and that’s a huge chore, as I have about 125 blogs in 5 folders on my toolbar). Y’all are doing a great job.

  4. And of course, vesta is the *second* FA blog I read. :) Vesta rocks! :D :D :D

  5. Thanks Bri, BigLiberty, and vesta44! You all are on my must-read list, and it tickles me pink that you’ve all responded here ^_^

  6. Kudos back at you, WYW :) I’ve been enjoying your posts at the forums and wherever I see them, so yay, now I know about your blog too.

    BL on day 1 of researching and reading about FA (as a movement, not a concept) online I believe I found Red No. 3 first and devoured like 4 years worth of posts in one night lol. Then came vesta. Hehehe. And BFB. The rest followed after that. Aside from that, my thanks would read very similarly to yours.

  7. Ah, another one of my faves! Thanks, AnnieMcPhee :)

    Wow, you and BL made me remember the first FA blog I came across — Big Fat Deal. (I had to skedaddle out of there, though, because it’s la-diet-friendly and links to a WLS blog.)

  8. That’s very true for me too; I definitely enjoy reading there, and then the diet thing will hit me like ice water in the face, and it’s a shock every time. Or the WLS, which is one of the few things that, even being as libertarian as I am, causes me to think “ban it. Just ban it.” By the way, I think I’m going to do a whole post spawned from your newest one – I started to comment and then realized I had a lot to say ;) Thank you very much for reading, I greatly appreciate it.
