Annabel Adams is the Health At Every Size™ activist and writer behind the blog, Feed Me, I’m Cranky. While in grad school, Annabel started her blog to document her progress in losing her “final pounds” after a 150-pound weight loss. The blog captures her evolution from weight-loss-obsessed to passionate about rectifying what she sees as a social injustice: our nation’s obsession with policing other people’s bodies in the name of a purported health goal. Today, her writing focuses on size acceptance and food- and obesity-politics. You can connect with Annabel via @feedmeimcranky1 on Twitter.
