Information and rants about living in the real world as an SSBBW

As SSBBWs, we live in a world built for smaller people. Each day we face challenges to fit in, or even to just fit. While education and information are powerful tools, our best resource is each other. Let us know your tips or rants about this subject at

SSBBW Profile

Each month we will profile an SSBBW to help inspire those SSBBWs who haven't yet gotten that they are wonderful, caring, sexy, special people. We are looking for more great and wonderful SSBBWs that feel they can be an inspiration to others to be profiled. Send us a mail if you are interested!!  

A letter from the editor

It's a brand new year. A time to reflect on the past year, on what went right and what went wrong. And on what you can do to make 2008 a good year.

Personally, looking back on 2007, it was a bitter sweet year for me. In May I entered the world of dating after a very long absence and have been seeing a wonderful man since then. And unfortunately in the same month I lost my father suddenly. I guess perhaps life has a way of balancing things out. I lost a man in my life and gained one.

And I started this magazine in 2007 because I couldn't find anything specifically geared towards SSBBWs like myself. It has certainly been an education for me and I am still learning. I am hoping that this year will be even better for the magazine. I have some great ideas I just need to learn how to bring them to fruition.

I want to thank those that have contributed to the magazine either by being profiled, by submitting stories or poetry or writing articles. And of course a very special thanks to Maria for being my food editor and helping to make my life a little bit easier.

I hope that more people will come forward this year as well as we are always looking for help and submissions. And we definately want your ideas and suggestions. This magazine is for you and we need you to tell us what you want.

I want to share a few little things I've learnt along the way:

1. We have to realize that we can't change others though or what they do. We can change how we react to things other people do.

2. Don't stress the little things. It's not worth the energy.

3. Write down your goals and keep them close. Look at them every day.

I'm going to try to put these to use, as well as the great tips in our health/fitness section to work on my new years resolutions. These resolutions are:

1. To work on my procrastination issue.

2. To strive to be a better person.

3. To eat healthy and properly and hopefully to lose some weight along the way.

So, all my best to you for 2008. I wish you health, happiness and prosperity.

Letters to the Editor...

We've received a few letters to the editor lately and would like to post them here. If you have anything to say we'd love to hear from you too, so send us an email.

"Your website gives a recipes for CRAP DIP when it's made from CRAB? Was that intentional? [Susie]"

Editors Note: Ooops, see we aren't perfect! LOL ... I call that a freudian typo since I don't like crab.
