    now this is what I call a feel good thread…. blogging at its best… okay. I have seen this in the stores before but was resistant to the hazel nut…. somehow, my memories of nuts, hazel nuts were either a lot of work to crack, or not as yummy as walnuts or cashews or pistachios… anyway, I am absolutely going to gets me a jar of this stuff today and have it for lunch on toasted white bread and in a baked croissant and with marshmallow chaser. Shannon, can you put up a poll asking people to predict which way I will like best?

    This isn’t feeling too food pornish is it?

      I’ll prepare the cold shower.

      And don’t worry about the hazelnut… really, it’s more of a chocolate spread than a hazelnut spread.

      Thanks Sereena,
      Glad to have you here. We love our Aussie comrades! You’re the bomb-shizzle diggity! That slang has absolutely no translation whatsoever, but it’s definitely positive!

    Hi everybody, this site is such a breath of fresh air! I have just recently returned to the online world after being away for 3 years when my old computer broke down and I couldn’t afford a new one right away. The changes to the online world since the early 00’s are really scary to me. I used to belong to several fat acceptance discussion groups, even started/ hosted one on the old MSN groups and I felt safe in these places because all the groups I belonged to were centered around a common interest. Now in the brave new world of Facebook, etc. it seems there is no place safe anymore. Maybe it’s just my lack of knowing how to do things, but everything I ever post involving FB gets in the hands of people who do NOT share my interests and violently disagree. I feel so much more vulnerable to trolls these days!

    Add to that the drastic increase in fatphobia since the late 90’s when I first discovered the internet. The good old days when you could find magazines like BBW in grocery store newsstands! Even some mainstream women’s magazines occasionally had pro-size acceptance articles back then. When the JAMA (journal of american med. assn.) actually published an article saying the “war on fat” was misdirected, that it’s activity levels, not weight, that determine how “fit” and “healthy” a person is. That article was just a few months before that MAJOR backlash when the Health Establishment lowered the numbers for who is counted as “overweight” etc.

    So I was hoping once I got the new computer I could go online and find a safe haven from all the fat bashing but EVERYWHERE you look, the trolls keep getting in and spewing their vitriolic hatred all over us. Never before have I had such a feeling of being so hated, just for BEING.

    And I am seriously convinced that a big part of what’s fueling this upsurge in fatphobia is the mega-profits of bariatric surgery. I’ve mentioned this in a couple other posts here, but as long as I’m in full-out rant mode, I’m gonna rant about this again, it’s such an outrage!!! Yesterday I went to the doctor for treatment for a cold/sore throat/ear infection and he used looking at my throat as a segue to push bariatric surgery at me! My red, swollen throat is so much worse that what a thin person would get because, as the dr. told me, “it’s really crowded in there because of all the fat around your neck”!!!

    Nice to meet you all and I hope I have found a place to connect with like-minded people and feel un-hated for a few minutes out of my day.

      You’ve found a great community of people who let you be you. And I agree that there is a fiscal component to the hysteria. The estimate that $73 billion in productivity losses is an oft-quoted study by Eric Finkelman, who was being funded by Allergan, makers of the Lap-band. The study itself is crap, as Ragen dissected it.

      Eric Oliver’s “Fat Politics” discusses all the ways corporations and federal agencies benefit from an epidemic. And now that obesity rates have leveled off, the NIH and CDC whip up the frenzy again with Weight of the Nation. It’s just idiotic.

      I think you could take a ten year break from the internet and when you come back there’d still a ton of terrible out there.

      So, welcome back and we’re glad to have you. Hope you enjoy Fierce Fatties.
