Fat and Friendly in... Bet Shemesh????

Ok, so I have a confession to make. About a week ago I left Toronto for (what I think is) for good and moved across the planet to Bet Shemesh in Israel. For those who know anything about Israel's geography, Bet Shemesh is in the middle of the country about 2/3 of the way from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

I am loving it here. Ok so plus size stores may be few and far between (ok, I have not as of yet found any, but I have been told there is at least one) but the fat friendly culture is wonderful. The turnstyles are not designed for anorexics. Chairs are meant to be sat in. Busses meant to be relatively comfortable.

It is amazing!

So, I do plan to keep this blog up and running and just change it slightly to things of interest outside the us INCLUDING Canada.

Whoa! I wandered over to you Movin.. blog. Sister, you have been busy!

You are much braver than I am. I have lived in the same place for 23 years and don't think I could make a move to the next town-much less half way around the world!

You are so lucky though!!!!!

I hope things keep going well for you and your family!

Possible for you to pick up a few tichels for me? ;o)

definitely keep updating! people are fat and friendly in israel too! ;)

i love "chairs are meant to be sat in" :) at olive garden they have a chair with no arms that is actually called a "larry" chair because a really big guy named larry sat in an armed chair and broke them off. so from now on, they have larry chairs.

the useless tidbits of info that i know

I just found your blog, and I've been reading them. Don't stop blogging! You are doing a great service for fat folks.
So tell us more about your move as a person of size. Where there any issues that arose in your journey related to living as a larger person?
