I hope everyone who is reading this is doing as well as possible given what’s going on. I want to be honest that I’m struggling a bit about what to blog about recently (with everything else that’s going on, I’m just not sure what the most helpful thing for me to write about is…) so if there’s something you’d like me to blog about it would be awesome if you would either leave it in the comments, or e-mail me at ragen at danceswithfat dot org.
I’ve been doing some other writing that I’m excited to share with you when it’s published, and I’ve also been doing some fun video stuff. As I wrote about here before, I had started dabbling in Stand-up Comedy before coronavirus sent me home to stay for a while. So I decided to do some quick bits of comedy (kind of a one-woman open mic) from home.
You can see the ones I’ve done so far here, starting with my bit about Weight Watchers. (It would also be super awesome if you wanted to subscribe to my YouTube Channel)
I was also honored to be highlighted in a series by the Olympic Channel called “Body+” You can see all of the athlete’s videos (including mine!) here
Finally, I did an interview with Jessica Richman, the CEO of The Visible Collective which advises companies on how to better serve fat customers. We talked about how fitness companies can be more inclusive of fat people. You can check that out here!
