Still Alive


I am really proud of the things that I have done here, what I've learned, written, photographed, wore and the lovely folks I've met. I am not sure yet if I will continue to blog. Update: I am working on starting to blog again! Stay tuned! You can take a gander at the archives here. I have opened up swap ads here, if you'd like to have your button in my sidebar.

Rachele whether you decide to keep blogging or not, just know that you are awesome and I'm just one of the many who you've inspired to love my fat. Thanks so much xo

Kimberly said...

Ditto to what Arlene Starr said. Thanks for all the great blogs, even if you never make another one! <3

I was worried about you! I do hope you will keep it up but if not you've helped me in so many ways and have impacted change for sure!!! If you don't come back you will be missed!

I was wondering why the blog hadn't changed and thought you might have been more busy than usual... curious to know what happened? I have your blog open in my home page tabs, and have enjoyed what I've read and seen since I found you earlier this year!! You are an inspiration! Hope all is well.

Ashley Marfori Lutton said...

Aww ending the blog? I just started to get into it.

Jen Voudrie said...

I've wondered where you were... Just wanted to let you know I'll really miss your blog if you decide to stop.

Uncumber said...

Hi Rachele, I've been thinking of you & hoping things are okay in your world. You've been an inspiration to me as a fat lady and feminist. You put your heart & soul into your blog, and I want to thank you for your bravery. You rock.

Casey said...

I hope everything is going well in your part of the world. You will be missed around here! You've been such a huge inspiration for me over the past few years, sincerely. I sure hope you stick around Instagram and Tumblr! You're an amazing lady.

Kara said...

Hi Rachele. I've been reading your blog for a month now, and I have to tell you that it has been such a pleasure. Your wit and enthusiasm have given me a lift on days when I was feeling really down on myself. I understand that sometimes it's hard to keep up with things like this when life is going on, but what you have done inspires many people, and you should be aware of the good that you have done. You are a very unique, creative person, and you are so brave to stand up and be heard when some of us are just learning to squeak.
Delurking,
Kara

Thank you for creating such a wonderful and positive blog. If you choose to stop blogging, I will be sad to see you go, but wish you all the best in your life.



Thank you for all the positive! This world really needs it.

Sophie said...

I'm not going to lie - I was pretty devo to read this. Your blog is my favourite; my happy place. I understand there's a "season" for everything, so certainly no hard feelings if you choose not to blog anymore. After all, The Nearsighted Owl is gorgeous achievement and you've helped a lot of us fat babes to love life! Hope all is well with you xx

Sylvia said...

Please don't go. :(

Daniela Ragusa said...

Ditto everything everyone else already said. Hope you return for a weekly or monthly entry. Amazing work! Thank you.

Ashley said...

Oh no! I hope you continue to blog; you are an inspiration and have completely changed the way I view my body. If not, good luck to you in all you do!:)

Rachel said...

I hope you do - your past of the internet is so refreshing, happy and friendly. No wonder you're proud, you should be! :-)

Untypically Jia said...

I hope you stick around, but I understand if you leave. Just so you know you've been a huge inspiration to me and a big part of my journey through body acceptance and activism.

thursdaynextgal said...

Wherever you end up, please know your positive, take-no-bullshit attitude has helped me see myself as someone worthy of love and respect (especially from MYSELF). Thank you, sincerely.

Rosie said...

Please stay, you are so inspiring! If you choose not to, just know you have changed my worldview for the better and I will always be grateful!!

One night this past winter during a night of insomnia I found your blog. I have suffered with body issues since I was a child. I watched my mother my whole entire life yo-yo diet and hate her body, and as an adult I followed in her foot steps. My husband is supportive and loves me and all of the things I have always seen as faults, but it wasn't until I found your blog that I realized that I deserve to love myself. Your blogs have shown be strength and how to accept myself how I am and I can't ever thank you enough for being that person for me. I understand blogging takes a lot of time and might not be the right thing for you personally right now, but I had to say thank you. Thank you for helping me accept myself, showing me that there are so many worse things in the world then being over weight. I wish you the best and hope that you will be back soon, I will be checking and looking at the archives for when I need some strength. <3

Bexx said...

I echo the others when I say your blog has been very inspirational to me, but I would understand if for some reason you had to stop. Just know that what you have done has made a difference! Best wishes

Amanda Mullins said...

I'll be sad to see you leave, but wherever you go, remember all the amazing things you've said to us, and please keep believing them! :D You are a beautiful and wonderful human being, and we'll miss you <3.

betsyvillexoxo said...

I just discovered your blog a few days ago and I am so sad to hear that you are leaving! My best friend and I are both chubby chicks and we work in a boring call center all day, so we try to find new things to fill our days with. Your "How to Be a Fat Bitch ECourse" is super dang inspiring and we are already on ecourse #4! I hope you don't leave because you don't know how much you have helped us already, and I hope for the future that you keep blogging so we can still be inspiried by someone like you!

vero said...

Oh nooooooooo! please don't go! I surely will miss you if you do :-(

I also discovered your blog fairly recently through a size positive page on FB that linked to your blog. I love your style, love how much you're a size positive advocate, and love how fearlessly you seem to present yourself on your blog. I know that doesn't come easily, though. I've never blogged about size acceptance, but I've been verbal about it in several other internet communities where I used to be (and in some cases, still am) a member. I've experienced the backlash that comes from just advocating for size acceptance on a music forum, for example, or a Myers-Briggs personality types forum, as another example. I couldn't imagine some of the stuff I'm sure you deal with by creating a public blog dedicated to size advocacy and personal style as a fat woman. ...Point being, I hope you don't stop blogging, but I certainly understand if you feel you need to.

G Cookie said...

No offense at all :) To be honest though, I'm not totally sure why you're thinking that wouldn't work out? My love for education and science are both greatly encouraged by my faith. I believe that God is in fact the greatest scientist and that all that He has created was done within scientific laws and bounds.

To each their own- live and let live :)

Nooo don't leave me!

Anneroo said...

Dear one, thank you so much for the love and effort that has gone into this blog. I came across your facebook page thusly: my friend's company, Honey Cooler Handmade, was linked to The Militant Baker, and she's of course connected to you. I found both of your blogs in May 2013, when I was going through a very low period. They have been very helpful, and I am making progress, for the first time in my 30 years, towards sincerely loving and valuing myself. Your blog has given me the courage to wear clothes I "couldn't" wear before, and I often think of you (if Rachele can do it, so can I!) when walking down the street if I start to feel self conscious. You are a wonderful role model, exactly as you are, and I feel very grateful for your help and inspiration. Whether you continue to blog or not, I wish you and your husband all the best!

Kayte said...

I miss you and your unique voice. Hope you're okay.

Nora Stone said...

You are missed, radical lady. I hope you're finding lots of time to write your book(s)!

Kym Bozarth said...

You will be missed, but it is understandable.

Beverly said...

Miss reading up on you :(

juliebee said...

Missing your work on the important issue of size-ism and fat acceptance. You have accomplished so much with this blog already and helped so many women, including myself, stand a little straighter and move our full bodies into living more full-filling lives. Your work has been a gift to many. I hope you are well and wish you the best in your endeavors.

Jessica Hilt said...

I am late to this party but you're amazing. Whether you continue your blog or not, I wanted you to know that you've super inspired me.

sian said...

hurray!

whitejenna said...

Yay for the update! I was missing you, your style, your thrifting and your positive words!

Sophie said...

Yay!! So excited!

Anneroo said...

Yay! Very happy : )
