Redefining Obesity, the Blog

The blog is a platform for my personal insights and investigations into issues surrounding obesity.  It's important for me to be able to share the background of the project in the social media sphere, especially since that's where a lot of misinformation and discrimination gets distributed and played out.


What can you expect to find here?


  • A brutally honest, first-hand account of how my personal experience as an obese person has informed the work

  • Commentary on current events and how they help/hurt the cause

  • Updates on how the work is going and what new things are coming up

  • Promotion of and commentary on alternative perspectives of obesity


What can you be sure not to see here:


  • Preaching

  • Trolling (or responding to trolls)

  • Promotion of dieting or exercise programs

  • Discrimination of anyone

  • Lobbying

  • Self-promotion


That's it!  I hope you enjoy.  If you have any questions, comments, or ideas please feel free to get in touch with me at or through the "Contact" page.


Thanks for visiting!
