25 Things Fat People Shouldn't Do is an unabashed middle finger to the preposterous idea that any human who weighs more than the status quo does not deserve to live a full and well rounded (ahem) life. The list of 25 is composed word for word from direct lists of sheer assholery found on the internet. These range from the absurd to the profoundly shameful, and I will be disproving this offensive notion with style. Feel free to join in on the fun, and if you do, link at the bottom so I can share. May the Chub Club live long and prosper!

 My boyfriend is so rad. He has just accepted the fact that every week he will be photographing SOMETHING strange... and he's totally okay with it. Like, peel-his-ass-of-the-couch-while-watching-football okay with it. Cute huh? Though I did try and convince him to take pictures with me since we need  a few current ones but he said he wasn't "feeling photogenic" today". Sigh. Next time.

I REALLY enjoyed this weeks challenge. The weather in Tucson just got gorgeous and its cool and windy while the sun is still out. It's really remarkable, and we've been going on walks every night for the past few days. So today we walked down to one of the parks near our house and snapped a few of these:

And of course, being the soul mate of a photographer, he made sure to take a picture of the jump from the swing.

I hope you can find a swing near you, so you can participate! It is fucking awesome to see how high you can get:) If you do, And, I didn't break the swing set. Take that haters.

Your challenge: Find a swing set near you! Anyone (no size exclusions!) can join in... just provide a link to your post below! If you're an overachiever, you can also prepare for next Monday's 25 Things, which will be: "Wear Animal print". I'm gonna roar while I rock it, bitches.

///You can always contribute to the 25 things that I've already done. The link up will be open until the 25 are completed, so go back and do them all!//


  1. You looked absolutely adorable swinging, so the haters can suck on that. You're never too old or too big to get on a swing, it's something that you should never pass up!

  2. Girl, you swing your heart out. Am I the only one who thinks they should have playgrounds for adults? I think everyone would be a lot happier if there were.

  3. ohh these are such beautiful photos! The second one of you swinging is actually such a gorgeous shot, you rock ;)


  4. haha, you are so cute! i've got to get out to a swing so i can participate!

  5. Haha so adorable! I don't have any swing photos so I'm going to improvise!

    Can't wait until next week. I am obsessed with animal print!


  6. I love the lollipop addition! When my brothers and I were little, we used to play Indiana Jones and trapeze across all of the swings. That is a rad game that everyone should play. =D

    1. that sounds both adorable and fun:) I love twisting the chain of the swing while you're in it until you cant anymore, and then lettin' her loose! Its enough to get you dizzy:)

  7. I love playing on the swings! It's kids that shouldn't be able to play on 'em. They're SUCH swing hogs!! and then their parents get all uppity if you try to swing while they're in the vicinity. SOoooo lame.

    I love this project, BTW!

  8. Great photos! I can't wait to go swinging :]

    ♥ your hair!

  9. You look amazing on the swing! I love your bright, colourful dress. I can't go near a swing without having a go on it. I work at a Kindy & the last time we had a jumping castle the kids were delighted when I jumped on for a go too

  10. I love the skirt! As for the lolli...TAKE THAT SUCKERS!!!

  11. I can't BElieve you have a LOLLIPOP too. Total no-no. (just kidding!). Love, love, love your blog, Jess. I keep telling my husband the things people say to me as a size 18-20 (formerly a 10). He is always shocked!

    There truly is a prejudice against people (especially women!) who don't fit the "expected" size. THANK YOU for your writing and your sass. I think you're stunning. <3

  12. I seriously LOVE YOU!!!!

  13. I swing with my children ALL the time! I'm about the weight of all 3 of them combined & then some (they're young...it'll balance!). I love your blog! Keeps me going on those days when my favorite capris just aren't comfy & cut off things they shouldn't...but I suck it in cause they're pretty & I love 'em!
