Feb. 19, 2010 - PRLog -- PeopleOfSize.com is compiling stories for a book on being a person of size.  

Stories can be on nearly any subject: life experience, pride, shame, weight struggles, accomplishment, childhood, adulthood, work, love, and whatever else has been significant to you.  Writers do not have to be professionals; PeopleOfSize.com will assist with editing.  These are real stories about real people and perfection is not required – though thoughtful sharing is.  Participation is voluntary but all authors will be credited, or may remain anonymous.  To submit writing and for more information contact info@peopleofsize.com.

PeopleOfSize.com is an online community that provides information, support, and interaction for "people of size" of all ages. PeopleOfSize.com is not a diet site, though health and fitness are part of what will be addressed. The e-community will focus on all aspects of life, from medical to fashion, relationships to daily living, entertainment to emotional well being.

• According to the National Institute of Health (NIH) about two-thirds of adults in the United States are overweight, and almost one-third are obese.
• The total global weight loss market is expected to be worth $586.3 billion by 2014. North American market will account for nearly 43%.
• The diet industry is dependent on repeat customers; people are set up to fail, to aid re-enrollment.
• One out of three women and one out of four men are on a diet at any given time. Two out of five women and one out of five men would trade three to five years of their life to achieve their weight goals.
• It is widely accepted that 95 percent of people who lose weight regain it.
• A 2008 Yale University study suggests weight discrimination is now as prevalent as race or gender discrimination.

PeopleOfSize.com launched a beta website (http://www.peopleofsize.com) featuring a confidential survey to gather information about user interests, concerns, and preferences. A full website in response to this survey will provide comprehensive information and access from many perspectives and offer a forum for discussion and social interaction on plus/large size fashions, size friendly vacation spots, health questions and concerns, job, family, and relationships, political and social issues, and more.

While the full site is developed information and interaction is taking place on the PeopleOfSize.com facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/peopleofsize).
