I read "Lessons from the fat-o-sphere" (see group book shelf for more info) and found a list of on-line resourses for larger people.

Here is a partial list of sites that I have checked out and feel that they fit with out philosophy. Please DO NOT list any x-rated sites.

If any site is no longer working, please let me know so it may be deleted from our lists.



I think this should go without saying, but all resources listed are to be used at your discretion and risk. This group is not endorsing any of the resources listed in this guide nor do is this group responsible for any problems you may experience while using such resources. Basically, you are responsible for yourself.

Worth it for social change. Not specifically for fuller bodied support, but is worth it all the same.
