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 try to profile an SSBBW to help inspire those SSBBWs who haven't yet gotten that they are wonderful, caring, sexy, special people. We are always 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!!

This month our SSBBW is Mimi, a 500 lb woman from Washington, D.C. Click here to view her profile.

Letters to the Editor...

We receive a few letters to the editor now and then 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 or drop us a line on Facebook.

"I have a serious suggestion.  Instead of encouraging women that is great to be obese why not a mag for SSBBW's that will help them lose weight?  You have to know how unhealthy it is to be obese...have you ever seen an 80 yr. old woman. " [Hugh]

Editor's Note: Well Hugh, there are 1000's upon 1000's of websites on how to lose weight. That isn't what our magazine is about. We offer motivation, support and resources for SSBBWs, things that are very hard to find on the internet.
