In mid October, I was introduced to Allen and his dog through an app called Map My Walk.  I don’t know Allen personally (or his dog) but somehow we became “friends” on this app.  As usual I was struggling but I had decided to redownload the Map My Walk  app to my phone.  This was [...]

Yes this yo yo cycle has [...]

So my last post was kind of a bummer, huh?! Well I wanted to thank you all for the comments.  They helped me so much.  I used them to try and reframe my perspective on this situation. Many people told me that STOPPING a regain is a big deal.  And that even MAINTAINING (albeit not [...]

Haley Morris-Cafiero’s Wait Watchers Photos: Do people stare at fat people?

November 20, 2014
o-WAIT-WATCHERS-570

I don’t personally like the word “fat”.  I don’t deny that I am fat.

However, ‘fat’ is the word being associated with this project along [...]

Are overweight people selfish?

So many people think that the ones who struggle with their weight are  selfish.  How many times have I heard this?   I can’t count.  It would be like trying to number the stars. You’re obese because you’re lazy.  And lazy people are selfish “She’s fat“, they say ,” Because she’s selfish.  She only cares [...]
