Bras! [Oct. 6th, 2009|09:27 am]
Fattie Union - Fat and Happy, so STFU!
Hi! I just found this community through a link someone posted on another community - I'll admit I'm not ENTIRELY happy with my size, but I think a community like this could help me with that. More than hanging around celebrity gossip LJs, anyway :p

Anyone here of the small breasts, big under bust crowd? It seems no stores think a 38B even exists! I have ONE bra, that I bought in the 6th grade. I am 15 now. I have a few other bras I pretty much refuse to wear because a 36B cuts into me like woah, but a few times shopping I had to settle =/ AND, when I can find a 38B, they're always so ugly, man. I mean, no one is going to be seeing my bra but me, but can I not have any options other than "beige" for under 20 bucks? :(

(my friends also make fun of me for my weird bra size...then again my friends also like to run over and rub my belly asking when the baby is due. Regularly.)

Following my TV appearance last week, I've found the video to show you guys!

I'm the one in the silver dress with the black wig, if you hadn't guessed, I'm supposed to be Beth Ditto :)

Something I've been thinking about [Apr. 7th, 2008|03:54 pm]
Fattie Union - Fat and Happy, so STFU!

You know what makes me hate being fat? Shopping.

Last Saturday my boyfriend and I went on a shopping spree in a city 4 hours away (by car) from where we live. We spent about 5 hours there shopping. I *love* shopping. I love bringing new clothes and shoes at home and wearing them for the first time 2 or 3 days later, I love spending money on clothes I like and clothes that fit me well and make me look spiffy. But I hate the shopping itself, the whole trying-clothes-on processus.

On the way back home, I was driving, lost in my thoughts, I was thinking about the 5 hours I spent at the shopping center, all the stores I visited, all the clothes I bought - and all the ones I tried on but didn't fit, either because of my oversized boobs or because even the XL wouldn't fit me. I also realized that I always took a look into the stores before entering them and looking at clothes, to make sure I wasn't the only fat girl in it... to make sure the sellers wouldn't look at me weird and to make absolutely sure that it wasn't that kind of store where they sell clothes of small size with an L on the tag (the best way to piss me off).

I realized that, when I tried on shirts and NONE of them would fit, I was *ashamed* to leave the cabin and give the clothes and say "nothing fits". Whenever that happens, I'm sure the girl will think, deep inside of herself, "of course, she's too fat to fit in these, I don't even know why she tried them on". I realized that, when the clothes are high on a rack and you must ask a seller to have the size you want, even if the shirt was really nice and I really wanted to try it on, I didn't ask a seller, because I was ashamed to tell her that I'd like a L or an XL.

I realized that shopping really sucks when you have such a low-confidence about your body... it's been this way for me for 6, 7 years maybe, and I'm starting to get tired of it. I just felt like getting that out of my heart and head, share it with you girls and get your comments. I want to know if I'm all alone acting this way!

The (almost famous) model! [Mar. 5th, 2008|12:33 am]
Fattie Union - Fat and Happy, so STFU!

Hey there all!

I've not posted here for what seems like forever, however I have the best news!
I went and filmed a music video a couple of weeks ago and it came out yesterday. If you're interested, it's linked on the first unlocked post of my personal journal.

However I am disappointed in that I was the only plus sized girl in the whole shoot, and even then they kept the shots of me from the neck up! How is this supposed to be extolling the virtues of the fat girl in the music and media industry?!?!

(in case you're wondering, I'm seen at 1.46 and 2.24)

Mod Post. [Feb. 11th, 2008|02:37 pm]
Fattie Union - Fat and Happy, so STFU!

[Current Mood |busybusy]

Hey guys. After discussing a situation with my fellow mods last night, we have a new rule. Any posts concerning weight loss must go under a cut and have a mildly worded subject line. It has been brought to my attention that certain posts about said subject matter have been triggering for some members, so we'd like to keep everyone comfortable while allowing discussions to continue as per normal.

If you don't want to read a post, skip over it.

Also, wings_unfurling is now a mod, so if anything else comes up, feel free to contact her as well.

Carry on!

new community [Jan. 27th, 2008|06:22 pm]
Fattie Union - Fat and Happy, so STFU!

[Current Mood |hopefulhopeful]

Hey everyone,

I've started a new community and I want to invite you all to it! It's called fattie_rage and its main goal is to provide a safe space where we can vent about our frustrations with living in a fatphobic world.

I got the idea from a similar community of feminists, and it just seemed like such a good place... all of us experience crap the world throws our way and our very natural response is a righteous anger at the injustice. It's not healthy to just sit on that anger or turn it inward, so this community provides a safe, encouraging environment where we can vent our anger in a healthy way. Part of building that kind of environment is that anything encouraging dieting or weight loss is not allowed, because we are creating a safe space where people won't feel any pressure for that kind of thing (and especially to help create safe space for those with eating disorders). That's not to say that people who are dieting or actively trying to lose weight aren't welcome to be part of the community, of course. (And the rules are pretty clear on what is and isn't acceptable, for anyone who's not sure!)

Anyway, I hope you'll come check it out and join if you think you'd like to participate!

I don't know if anyone is as underwear obsessed as myself, but figleaves is having a massive sale and they ship internationally and have (I believe) pretty cheap postage. I think that it is 4 pounds flat rate?

bravissimo is having a sale too, but not as huge markdowns. Some beautiful stuff there too though!

There's one thing I hate about this time of year, New Year's resolutions. Any company related to diets and excercise advertize hardcore because people make resolutions to get in better shape. Most people break their resolutions anyway and the gyms and weight loss programs know and profit from it. Sorry to rant but I get sick of seeing Jenny Craig and Genesis health club ads on TV, especially when the people's "before" pictures look average size.

Weight Watchers: "diets don't work!" [Dec. 30th, 2007|03:17 pm]
Fattie Union - Fat and Happy, so STFU!

[Current Mood |annoyedannoyed]

Have you all seen this new stupid Weight Watchers ad campaign claiming that "diets don't work" (or "stop dieting, start living") and therefore you should use them instead? WTF? WEIGHT WATCHERS IS A DIET. KTHX.

Bigfatblog.com has some PDFs that people are supposed to print and put up in public places wherever Weight Watchers has their billboards. I wonder if anyone will actually do that? I have to say that if I run across one myself I might be tempted to print out a PDF and go hang it up.

Anyway, I was just annoyed and thought I'd see if anyone here had anything to say about it. I just think Weight Watchers using that language "diets don't work" is so oxymoronic and ridiculous!
