To the Guys Who Threw Eggs at Me Tonight

This is a powerful, powerful piece about fat shaming and how one brave, kick ass, witty and wonderful and inspring person dealt with it. I’m doing my best to help become viral – everyone NEEDS to read this.

Dances With Fat

Who throws and eggI was five miles into a nine mile training walk for my upcoming marathon when your car pulled up beside me, I didn’t think much of it until I heard you yell “HEY FAT BITCH!”  I stopped and turned to look at you and you took that opportunity to throw 2 eggs and, somewhat inexplicably, an empty egg carton, at me. (Picture at the bottom of this blog)

To recap – adult males threw the eggs and carton at me for daring to exist outside my house in a fat body.  Of course they are utter cowards who sped away immediately, leaving me with so many questions:

Inexpensive Plus Size Yoga and Fitness Clothes

People often ask me where I buy my yoga/fitness clothes. The answer is Old Navy. Although general clothing quality is hit or miss, the active clothes are well made. I’ve been wearing several pair of yoga pants for over a year and they still look new!

There is a huge selection online, however rarely, if ever are there any plus size active clothes left in the store. They must be super popular. I would strongly suggest ordering online. Free shipping for orders of $50+ and you can return to any Old Navy location.

XL is approximately a 14/16, XXL is 18/20. Some clothes are generously cut and all are stretchy. XXL would most likely fit size 22/24 in tanks and yoga pants. (really depends on the item) I’m a size 18/20 and sometimes have to size down to XL.

If you’re reading this post on July 1st, 2013, Canada Day, there is a 30% off sale today only. They often have sales, but even the regular prices are totally reasonable. With 30% off, it’s a steal! I just stocked up and am good for the next year!
