If you don't read her blog at AttackoftheSugarMonster.com, you should. She's a great writer and unbelievably honest about her life. She's coming to my Fat Studies class this week to speak, and I'm super stoked to introduce her to my students! I picked out a selection of her writings to share with my class, and I thought that you all might enjoy reading them, too. She's a survivor and a fighter and she's working damn hard to love and care for herself in a world that tells her she's worthless. So here's some of her writing in case you'd like to get to know her. :)

OH! I should add a trigger warning. Many of her entries talk about eating disorder issues and sexual abuse. Sorry I forgot to say that initially.
