About The Blogger 

dawgHi! I’m Corissa Enneking, a 30 year old happy fatty from the Midwest, US. Over the last few years I’ve been on a pretty thrilling journey to unlearn a lot of bullshit that society has taught me about my body and how I should feel about it. The journey isn’t over, and it turns out I learn more about myself and my values every day… so I’ve decided to share all of that with you!

I live in a little house with my partner Nate, our dog Kanka, and our kitten Meouse. We spend most of our free time with our friends and family. We just got married in October of 2015, and it was absolutely magical.

I have a major crush on the earth and all things nature including (but not limited to!): rocks, dirt, flowers, sunshine, water, animals that probably don’t smell good, sunsets, and soft grass. There are few things I love more than being at the pool with my best friend on hot summer days and my absolute favorite outfit is a bikini and a layer of sunscreen. Some day I may move somewhere that winter doesn’t exist, for now I’ll be staying in the Midwest where my beautiful family and friends are.


About FatGirlFlow.com 

In 2012 I began casually blogging on Tumblr.com after discovering That Cortnie Girl and wanting to stay connected to her amazing blog. I had just started therapy for panic disorder and agoraphobia and was getting ready to start treatment for disordered eating (whoa, intense. I know). My life was turned upside down through treatment, and every perception I had ever had about my body began to unravel… thank goodness!

It turned out that a lot of people were interested in me and my story, and over a few years I gained several thousand followers on tumblr. The fat community welcomed me with open squishy arms, and in April 2015 I created Fatgirlflow.com.

I wish I could say that this blog is for plus size fashion, or even that it’s just for loving myself. It turns out it’s an intersection of those things and so much more. I discuss my desire to step outside of my comfort zone and challenge toxic views that I’ve learned, I show off pretty things that I love, I talk about the stigma behind being fat in a fatphobic society, I celebrate other fat people, I talk about how to make peace with yourself and others, and I talk about my triumphs through adversity. I am not an expert on any of these things, but I know how comforting it was when I found people i connected with when I was having a hard time, and I hope that I can do that for others.

Fatgirlflow has now been featured on several major media outlets including Huffington Post, Cosmopolitan, Life and Style, and The Daily Mail. I hope through more media exposure to fat people like myself, we can begin ending the stigma and shame surrounding fat bodies. My purpose is not to ask for acceptance, it’s not to sit around and hope that people will see me as someone worthy of a voice. I know my worth, and I know the worth of other’s. My purpose is to celebrate our lives and our bodies as we are right now. Without caveats, without explanation. I am a perfect expression of myself in this moment, and so are you. <3

Thanks for visiting!
Corissa Enneking

    I noticed in one of your videos you have the state of Kansas on your back. That is where I am from and it is so refreshing to see that some one around me is being body positive. Most bloggers are from way off places that are more accepting than good ol Kansas. I am a new fan!

      I AM from Kansas!!! It’s definitely a bit more difficult to be body positive in such conservative old fashioned states, but we’re out here!!!!

    I just saw on FB that you worked with a photographer from Lawrence, KS. So I came here to find out if you live here, too!
    I recently quit my full time job both as means of self-care but also to fully commit to my blog.
    I live in McPherson and literally know no other bloggers and it’s been hard for me to not see people in my area who do what I do.

    So I’m saying all this to say that is makes my heart so happy to see you, a girl who lives where I live, looks like me, and does what I want to do! It feeds a hungry part of me. So thank you!
    Are there any other KS bloggers who I should know about?

    I’m sitting here crying. I just finished reading all of your body positive posts and nothing has ever spoken to me in the way that your posts have. Ever. I have been fat my whole life. I have been shamed for it my whole life. I have felt like a worthless piece of shit my whole life. I have never once felt beautiful, sexy, worthy of attention, worthy of affection, or worthy of love. I’m a grown ass adult and have never even been on a date, because I cannot even imagine expressing outward interest in someone, let alone anyone having interest in me. You are literally the most powerful voice I have ever heard, and giving myself the permission to internalize and embody what you believe could be life changing. I am 30, but have never lived. Ever. Because I have never felt worthy of the breaths I take. It is going to take some very intense dedication to begin the process of unlearning my socialization, deconstructing society’s ideals, moving beyond the complex everyone in my life gave me, etc. But I look at you and see hope and inspiration. Thank you for showing me it’s actually okay to love myself the way I am. I hope someday I am able to. I can’t begin to explain what you have done for me and my entire tonight. You are an incredible person and I don’t know how to thank you.

      Now I’m crying!!!!! You are SO SO SO worthy!!!! I’m so sorry that you haven’t been able to feel that. Thank you for allowing me to be part of this with you. You are so incredibly worthy of your love and the love of other’s and letting me be any part of that journey with you is just incredible for me. <3 thank you for reading, and for making my day.

    Corissa, just recently found your site and wanted to say THANK YOU!! I wish I had someone with your positive voice when I was growing up. So grateful that you are here, and my girls have someone (besides me!) to show such a beautiful example of embracing who you are and not hiding yourself away. Much love!

    I’m so glad I found your channel/blog/fb/etc. Im 35 and am too damn young to dress so old. I actually found your YT page last night. And because of you I bought some of the cutest stuff off the websites you recommended. I do have a question though. Your body is pretty much identical to mine except you have bigger boobs. I went to get a couple of skirts from society plus and the shirts for 26/28 are all gone. So I wondered do you always go with those sizes in shirts that you tuck into skirts (or tie) or do you sometimes get smaller? I’ve got my order on hold because I need shirts but didn’t know if I could size down. I can’t wait to wear this stuff! Looking at you gave ME a massive confidence boost
    So thank you! xx

    Your blog reminds me of a quote I live by……”Never allow yourself to be defined by someone else’s opinion of you….”

    I believe life is too short to worry about what others think of you. Be happy.
