Welcome to SSBBW Magazine
An online magazine for SSBBWs and written by SSBBWs.
As SSBBWs we need to realize that our size does not make us second-class citizens! We are mothers, sisters, daughters, wives, girlfriends, teachers, doctors, lawyers; we are everywhere and we make differences in the lives of the people around us. It is our mission to build a support system for super-sized women everywhere.
With each issue, we plan to offer educational and entertaining articles, inspiration, motivation, advice, super-size clothing sources, recipes, tips on how to cope with our size, and so much more. We even have a section dedicated to FAs written by FAs and a forum for keeping in touch with our new friends.
We would like to thank you for your support and wonderful comments. We are continually striving to make this magazine better and to offer the best information, advice, and inspiration to you.
IN THIS ISSUE....
November 11 is a day set aside around the world to remember the sacrifices of members of the armed forces and of civilians in times of war. Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice. In many counties a moment of silence is observed at 11am. So please take a minute to remember those who gave their lives for our freedom.
On November 24th Americans will be celebrating their Thanksgiving.
NEW FEATURE: SSBBWs to blog about their lives each month...
Our vision with this magazine is to let you know that you are not alone. There are other SSBBWs around the world with the same issues, thoughts, worries and joys as you have. Whether you have accepted your weight and love your body, whether you are actively working to lose weight or whether you want to get healthier and have more mobility but don't know where to start, you are not alone.
Whether you are single or in a relationship, have children or not, work or are unemployed, housebound or relatively mobile, healthy or have medical issues, you are not alone.
Let's band together and share our stories, our triumphs and our pain. Click here to view this months blogs.
