    Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder?

    Last week, the media seduced us with the headline, "Kirstie Alley Slim Again."Is anyone still buying this?As msn.com writes, "Kirstie Alley is no stranger to a diet. The 63-year-old star has been thin, fat and thin again more times than we can count." Apparently, Alley recently lost 50 pounds. Again.So, why are we still reading the headlines, listening to the news clips, and studying the before and after pictures?Diet work - until they don't. Celebrity weight-loss roller coasters are perfect examples of what professionals have come to to call the "weight-cycling industry." What if someone…

    My style is usually fairly polished and conservative. I’m not a conservative person, but I find comfort in wrap dresses, maxis, and of course florals and lace. This outfit is none of those things!  My last name is Ho (my dad is Chinese), so when I saw this ASOS Curve shirt, I busted out laughing and bought it immediately. It was just perfect for my post-divorce mindset. I forgot how much fun it is to have this last name.

Fun fact: the best part of doing a vlog is getting my face on.

    Kristin, really.

    Hi all!I've looked through the tags a bit, but I haven't seen a real match for this.Do any of you have any tips for eye makeup for someone a bit middle-aged (I'm nearly 38) and whose eyelids are bit fleshy and saggy?  Or if not those tips specifically, maybe some guidance on how to proceed with a search, or some links to tutorials?The picture of me in my userpic is nearly 15 years old at this point, and my eyelids have, to say the least, changed.Edited to change security -- didn't realize it would automatically lock down. (I'm a lurker these days, heh.)

    Hey, folks - I'm trying to figure out sizing. I think y'all have ordered tights from We Love Colors, right? I'm about 5' 4.5", 285 pounds. I'm not sure whether to order for my height (A/B) or my weight (C/D or E?). They say they run a bit large, but I'm not quite sure what size to order. What's your experience with their tights and sizing? Thanks in advance!

    Quick question:Is there any weight limit for snowtubing?My sister and I haven't gone for many years, the last time I went I was probably a good 40lbs lighter. (I'm dancing around 265-270 now. My sister is considerably heavier than me.) The ski resorts I'm looking into (in PA), don't have any restrictions listed. I could call the place directly, but honestly I'd rather avoid it. I thought I'd ask here first in case anyone had a current scoop.Thanks!

  • One Theme, Three Ways: Customizing Twenty Fifteen

    Our default theme this year, Twenty Fifteen, draws visitors’ eyes to what matters most — the text and images you publish on your site. Crisp typography, generous spacing, streamlined navigation: Twenty Fifteen shows that less can indeed be more (and that it can look great on any device). Keeping things simple and streamlined doesn’t mean you can’t make a theme your own, of course. From free custom color schemes (pictured in the gallery above) to a vertical header area with ample space to channel your (and your site’s) personality, Twenty Fifteen is a…

I wish everyone the happiest and most peaceful of new years. . . ."My resolution is to live my life and not wait to do things when I get thin!! I have put off so many ideas thinking I didn't deserve that till I lose weight.""Ultimately, I want to work on not judging everything I eat.

    My article appeared originally on Recovery Brands' Pro Corner site.Dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT), as developed by Dr. Marsha Linehan, is a type of therapy that helps patients reduce emotional reactivity and improve thought patterns and interpersonal interactions. The therapy, a hybrid of cognitive-behavioral therapy and tenets from eastern philosophies (primarily Buddhism), was created to help those who struggle with borderline personality disorder and chronic suicidality. However, DBT has also shown promise in the treatment of substance use disorders and eating…

    Hello and welcome to another edition of #TransparentTuesday! During #TransparentTuesday, we remove the rosy filters of social media and share real life.  Social media is so shiny that it distorts the vision of reality for the viewer. You may see me smiling on Instagram, sharing goat videos from Facebook, or tweeting random nothingness. But the reality is that these past 3+ months of divorce turmoil have fucking sucked. There, I said it. It fucking sucked. I don’t ever want to admit that I’m bothered or admit that I’m sad. Friends have commented how impressed they are…

    25 Jan 2015 | 9:00 pm
    If you’ve read my blog for any length of time (thank you!), you know that I love me some Gwynnie Bee. The monthly subscription clothing service for sizes 10-32 has let me try so many different styles that I likely wouldn’t have otherwise. How Gwynnie Bee works: You simply select your membership plan (from 1 to 10 garments out at a time), fill your virtual closet, and they start sending you items! You wear them, throw them back in a pre-paid envelope, and mail them back. They dry clean them and send you more items. Super easy. I went back through my Gwynnie Bee styles from 2014…

I am really lucky to have a place to train with awesome trainers and other members. These are group training classes, but the trainers will modify anything as needed and make sure you’re doing everything properly. They’re just all around great people who are focused on overall health, not a number on a scale or number on a dumbbell. This should be the norm. So thanks Jim and Lucy! {Note: This…

Health is made up of four main components, fitness, healthy eating, sleep, and stress management. For as much is made about the importance on fitness and healthy eating, sleep and stress seem to be neglected in the discussion. Growing up, I was always tightly wound. I would make an amazing hall monitor because I could detect any rule breakers or sounds or funny business from a mile away. This only magnified itself as…
