Hey there, Reader!

I'm writing today because we're getting ready to begin the next text for the Fat Freedom Group Read Membership on Monday, April 10.

For a number of reasons, I've decided not to do a 2023-2024 Membership run that looks the same way this past year has, but if you want in for the rest of the current year, now's your time. Would you like to join us?

You can click here to read more about the Group Read in general or you can read through the details of what joining now can look like below.

(And if you know you're not in for the Group Read this year but want to stay on the general list, opt out of these messages here.)

Thanks for reading!


Okay... Detail time.

After lots of feedback and some deliberation, I've decided to start offering Single Servings of the Fat Freedom Group Read again.

This means that you'll get the chance to choose to either:

  1. choose to join in for the rest of the 2022-23 year run and read the remaining 3 texts with us for $450,
    OR
  2. choose to join ONLY for the ONE upcoming text.

With both choices you'll get:

  • the book sent straight to your door
  • access to the online community space (for the duration of the text)
  • a gentle reading schedule
  • Reflection Prompts for each Reading Section, and
  • live discussion calls via Zoom

Hey Reader. Has it ever happened to you where you think you're doing a really crappy job, but your friends are really positive and complimentary about that very same thing? This happens to me... a lot. Because I'm apparently in a super deep, self-doubting season of life. Can you relate? In the face of all that is going on in the world, where so many people are suffering in so many different (and similar) ways, everything feels horrible. I'm constantly criticizing myself about how much I'm not...

Hey Reader. Can you believe that it's already the end of January, Reader? Somehow this month has flown by. And in spite of my efforts to go slow and take the rest I need when I need it, I still trip up time and again. That's human-ing for you. But a conversation with a friend last week had us both commiserating about how we're struggling. We both know what we're *supposed* to do, and how we struggle to make that real.​ Because we're parents. We're partners. We're folks who work for ourselves....

Hey hey Reader! It's been a long time coming, but I'm finally dropping a new podcast episode!!! So many things happen away from the public eye, it's no wonder we all tend to enjoy when we get a peek behind the curtain. So I got together with my friend and co-facilitator, Greta Lax, to talk a bit about what a Fat Freedom Group Read even is, why it is so important to read in community, and how we chose the next Group Read book: Rest is Resistance by Tricia Hersey. Check out the episode here or...
