Hey there – thanks for stopping by! I am so super dorked out right now, I can’t even tell you. I’m bubbling over with excitement about having a place to obsess over my weight with everyone.
Why did I call it Fight the Fluffy? Way back when, pre-kids, pre-marriage, my best friend and I, who liked to imagine that we were absolutely hideously overweight, (we were both about a size eight, a size I would KILL to be right now) decided that we would no longer refer to ourselves as fat, only fluffy. After all, we were hot chicks, just – a little fluffier than we wanted to be. And now I’m extra fluffy. Super fluffy even. But fluffy can still be cute, and soft, and all things beautimous. It’s just – also fluffy.
Also, it’s easy to make duck/chick jokes, and it was the first thing I thought of, and I’m lazy.
So what are the rules? This is your blog. It’s not mine. A few of my fellow bloggers have oh so graciously agreed to serve as co-moderators – to both make sure things run smoothly and to keep things interesting.
But EVERYONE on the sidebar there? Is an important part of this group blog.
I hope you post, and post often. You don’t have to post on a specific day. You can post several times a week, or once. You can post whatever you’d like, but it should be related to weight loss or fitness or weight or body issues or – something like that – even if it is only tangenentially related. (Is that a word? I have no idea. Whatever word means sorta related? That’s what I mean.)
A very very very very very important part of participating here? (Somebody wanna take a guess what might be important to me? Anyone? Anyone?) Commenting. Please participate and comment as best you can. We’re doing this so that we can support each other, and the way people feel supported is by getting that feedback. I know you all know what I mean. This is for us. So that we can help each other work toward our goals, or work through them, or deal with our failures, or whatever it is. It’s for us. So comment, even if all you have to say is “I understand” or “hee hee.”
A few guidelines: Be sure to put a link to this blog on your blog’s homepage. When you post here, it’s a nice idea to mention and link your FTF post on your regular blog, although I’m not gonna enforce that.
If you are a blogger who wants to participate, but thinks we are crazy for starting right before Thanksgiving, join us when you are ready. Hopefully some of us will last that long :>
So you ready? Get your links on, and go for it!
