Book Club Challenge
Start a book club with your own writings. This may sound daunting but you may have more of a creative writing gene then you thought. Instead of always gathering the favorite from the local library, start with short stories. No one said it had to be a novel. When you gather your friends, read the stories without revealing who the author was until the end.
Before you know it you may just have a novel on your hands and a collection of stories with friends would be an awesome way to share a bit of your creative and critical thinking side. Go for it!
Want to add more fun: have a theme for the book and ask each person in the group to write a chapter. You'd be amazed at the result. I've personally tried this when writing a poem. Start by passing a sheet of paper around and have each person add a sentence to the poem. Once it gets back to you, you have a complete structured poem! Who would have thought that was possible especially with different writing styles and mental thoughts. It is awesome though-try it~

Select a venue where you do not have to pay overhead. Libraries and community centers may offer a free space considering you are offering a community service.
Everything doesn't have to center on having dinner however, if you do choose a restaurant or coffeehouse be aware these types of venues set out to make money and taking valuable space for a long period of time is disrespectful and can quickly destroy future opportunities.
Always create and maintain a line of communication with the owner or manager for time and space guidelines.
Just A Thought
Instead of worrying about what others are thinking about your weight and body image ponder what kind of person you want to be or are striving to be. The worst thing you could do is donate needless time and energy to peer pressure.
Work on you. Start a book club. Better yet a self-awareness session where positivity focused themes aim at uplifting not belittling others.
Have you ever wondered whether someone has it worse than you do? Yes there are those fighting bigger battles and this does not diminish your pain reaching out and lending a helping hand may soften internalizing what you perceive as flaws.
