My name is Pattie Thomas. I'm a medical sociologist. My Ph.D. convinced me I'd rather not be at a university. I now teach at a community college part-time, but I do other things as well.

I've been fat most of my life and come from a long line of fat people who live long lives. I decided a few years ago to be happy with being fat and stop dieting because it wasn't working.

You can read more of my thoughts on life as a fat and disabled person at my blog: FattyPatties.

You can read about my story in my book, Taking Up Space, a sociological memoir about being fat in a fat hating culture.

I am also disabled and consider myself and advopreneur -- someone whose business plan includes changing the world. I want to see all housing become visitable by all persons and I sell real estate to help promote this.

Just to be thorough, you should know I blog about sociology as well.
