"'A lot of fat blogs have popped up to fight against the obesity epidemic hysteria portrayed by the media,' Kinzel, who said she started dieting at age 9 but eventually stopped, told ABCNEWS.com. '[Fat bloggers] want to speak for ourselves instead of being spoken for.'
And as first reported by The New York Times, Kinzel's blog is in good company. Along with her blog, which focuses on helping fat women find clothing that fits them, her counterparts' blogs include Big Fat Deal, bfdeal.com, and Fat Chicks Rule, fatchicksrule.blogs.com, among several others."
Of course, ABCNEws and other media companies refuse to assume responsibility for keeping people fat by publishing (over the air or in books, mags, etc. as Rodale does for example) harmful messages from their stars and experts. For examples, see here, here, here, here, here, here and here.
"'People think all fat people do is sit around and eat ice cream, and that we haven't tried to do anything [to lose weight],' said 32-year-old van den Berg, who blogs from Berkeley, Calif. 'I'm blogging to hopefully break some of those stereotypes.'"
But instead of giving up, these fat people should fight back and do what works - which is clearly not what ABCNews, the government, the sick care industry, its various components, incompetent onsumer advocates, Big Business, and others are telling us.
Fat people, you have tried listening to the experts and they have failed you as they have failed everybody else.
If you are serious about wanting to lose weight, stop repeating the same mistakes over and over again.
It is possible for you to succeed.
In fact, it is impossible for you to fail unless you choose to.
