Comfy Fat’s On Youtube!

Great news! I’ve created a Comfy Fat Youtube channel

…with the help of my lovely partner, Corissa, of Fat Girl Flow! On the channel, you’ll find short vlogs of my life with Corissa (like this one), where important conversations around accessibility, self care and fat positivity, happen naturally. Additionally, you’ll get a behind the scenes look into our lives as influencers/bloggers. You’ll be able to see a cute, fat, queer couple attend events and navigate this not-so-fat-friendly world we live in.

Hooray for fat queer representation, am I right?

Sit and Chats

I’m also hoping to dabble a bit in “Sit and Chat” style videos where I talk about important topics that I’m passionate about. As I continue to learn more and more from the fat community, I’d like to share resources and knowledge on how to live life more comfortably. Here’s an example of this style video:

Collaboration Videos & Challenges

I had so much fun participating in a collaboration video with my pal Maggie McGill, a queer plus size, fashion and lifestyle blogger. We sent each other mystery boxes and opened up our treasures on camera. No rules. Just fill a box with random shit and and send it on its way!

Q&J’s

Knowing that my partner has a huge social reach of folks who are inspired by her work, I thought it might be fun to have a Q&A style video. Cleverly titled Q&J. Followers submitted questions and I randomly asked Corissa to answer them over the course of a couple days. As of right now, the video has over 25k views, my largest reach yet!

For the time being, I’m messing around with editing as I learn new software. Vlogs will be the most common videos. They’re so fun! And Comfy Fat subscribers are really enjoying them so far. Probably due to Corissa and I’s witty banter.

I’m also working hard to find my own voice and really be intentional about this channel. With my experience working with youth in social work, I can’t help but think of young people who may be viewing my content. I would have loved as a kid to be able to tune in regularly to a fat person on the internet living their life without apology. Representation is so important. Advocacy is so important. I want to use this platform to make a difference. We should all be able to live our lives unapologetically!

There’s so much creative freedom here and I’m so thankful for it.

I’m curious, what might you like to see on the Comfy Fat Youtube channel? Oh, and don’t forget to subscribe!

  • I heard there was a #bootyrevolution ??? 😂 jk but HONESTLY I was just telling my babe that anytime I wear anything other than @bear_skn boxers Im disappointed!! Theyre just so soft, moisture wicking, cute af, big enough for my fat ass, and they have mesh underneath for breathability. Im obsessed. They aren’t paying me to say this yall. Though they did just gift me this new cactus pair and it definitely brightened my day!🌵

  • Swipe for a picture of a picture for #throwbackthursday of a grumpy lil J!! I cant believe some of y’all are young enough to have all of your childhood photos just like...available to you whenever you want WHEREVER you want because someone has them somewhere digitally?? Thats so awesome Im so thankful for the way technology progresses. My childhood photos are all hard copies stored away in boxes at my parents house back in Mass and I have to dig around and take pictures of them when I visit because my parents dont know how to use technology😂 I can imagine how old they must feel.
.
Just another one of those random realizations that Im growing up. I do think it’s a privilege to grow older. But little observations like this make me FEEL ancient. What makes you feel old?

  • Hanging outside at one of my favorite lunch spots, I started feeling insecure about my belly. I tugged at my shirt as people walked by. I wanted to try and hide it, which I know doesn’t REALLY make a difference. I am fat, no shirt placement can hide that.
.
I mentioned it to Corissa, saying I was “feelin that internalized fatphobia right now.” I can feel how my presence makes people uncomfortable and when I name it, like I did today, it reminds me that my body is not at fault. Its not a problem, an inconvenience, nor an eyesore. Its purely a vessel for me to get out and enjoy my life in!

  • I wrote the piece “Advocating For Yourself At The Doctor As A Fat Person Isn’t Easy - Here’s Where To Start,” (link in bio) because I want others to feel empowered to stand up to medical professionals. I don’t want us to be afraid of seeking help anymore. We have a right to individualized care. We have the right to be seen as people and to be treated holistically, as opposed to being seen as a statistic and doctors initiating fat protocol on us without even listening to our concerns.
.
For anyone who thinks Ive got it all figured out, I don’t. I still avoid seeking medical care because Im afraid sometimes. I have to work myself up to it. Its a struggle that I have yet to master. Had I worked on this before, I would have had my knee issue checked out and dealt with 6 years ago when I injured it.
.
How would your life be different if you could trust medical professionals to treat your properly?

  • Greetings friends! Im approaching 20k! So for those who may not know, Im J. I use they/them pronouns and I create fat positive content on the internet

I have a blog called Comfy Fat where I write about things like gender and fat activism topics. I recently wrote a piece called “Advocating For Yourself At The Doctor As A Fat Person Isn’t Easy - Here’s Where To Start.” You can check out the link in my bio to take a read❤️
.
Look out for weekly “Lemme Cheer You On” Mondays and Bad Advice in my stories. We have fun with it! We also have a lot of fun over on youtube. My handle is /comfyfat over there
.
I try and keep it pretty transparent. I have good days and bad days. Im honest about that. I don’t have it all figured out. Some things I do know a heck of a lot about. And its okay to ask questions, I truly want to be a resource to y’all. I just ask that you keep it respectful👌🏼Thanks for joining me and of course for all the love! 💕🌈
.
What can you celebrate about yourself today? Big or small!
