    Last night I was sitting on the sofa and looked up to see my pup Lilly laying under the Christmas tree. I thought, “Aw, that’s so sweet!” until I realized it also looked like she was pointing out the obvious: I have yet to get a single gift wrapped and under the tree! It’s already mid-December and I have barely scratched the surface on purchasing gifts for this year. It’s like she’s mocking me. The past few years this has happened (one day I’ll learn to stop procrastinating), I would just buy a bunch of gift cards to stores I knew people liked, and…

    My Favorite Things

    6 Dec 2014 | 1:50 pm
    The holiday season is full of bright lights and lots of red, green, gold, and silver. But sometimes a woman just loves to wear a black dress. Black is mysterious, it’s alluring, it’s sexy and it still can manages to be taken seriously. Igigi has three black holiday dresses for plus size women that have […]

  • Tall Wide Calf Boots (++ good for walking!)

    I'm searching for some real world reviews of fat girl boots. As life long fatty, I am astonished and pleased at the amount of options we have this season, but I'm more than a little overwhelmed. I'm hoping that y'all have some insights you can toss my way.I'm looking for a pair of tall (ideally above the knee, but I'm open), black, versatile boots that I can wear all winter, but particularly during a Christmas vacation I'm taking to Paris. When I imagine these boots in my head, they are sleek and stylish enough that they can be dressed up or dressed down. Just…
  • Has anyone flown Southwest Airlines this past year?

    Particularly anyone size 24+, did you fit into the seat, seatbelts? I haven't flown in 4 years so I'm a little nervousAlso, my friend booked the tickets and it was one of those specials, so I'm assuming it's pick your own seat. Is it checkin 24hrs ahead online, or early checkin in person that gets to board first?

    Here’s more great reading for you: five stories we love from across all of WordPress. 1. Spaces of Freedom in Iran Jake Threadgould An account of one traveler’s stay in Iran: On my second night in Iran I was invited to a party in a middle-class area of Tehran. Since we were a mixed gendered group with a foreigner (yours truly) in their midst, we had to be reasonably inconspicuous when we stepped out of the car and onto the street. As soon as we stepped over the threshold of the house, however, we were no longer in the Islamic Republic. 2. Livin’ Thing: An Oral History of Boogie…

  • Is DBT Effective for the Treatment of Eating Disorders?

    drstaceyny
    3 Dec 2014 | 6:30 am
    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…

  • Black or White

    As a psychologist, I'm quick to point out all-or-nothing thinking - the kind of thought pattern that polarizes things into categories of good and bad or, really, any two camps - without leaving room for the middle ground.So, it may come as a surprise to hear me say that I think professionals and products and plans are either recovery-oriented or not - but I do.If a therapist is advertising her treatment program, designed to curb overeating, as a tool for weight-loss, I don't see her as recovery-oriented. Part of the reason that people overeat is due to the diet mentality. If a yoga instructor…

    My article appeared originally on Recovery Brands' Pro Corner site.The statistics are staggering; millions of Americans don’t get enough exercise. In the early part of my career, as a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor, I focused on this end of the spectrum – helping people to incorporate exercise into their lives and adhere to regular exercise programs. But, as I trained to be a clinical psychologist, I saw more and more of other end of the exercise spectrum. On this other side sit those who have a compulsive relationship to exercise; that exercise despite pain…

    Again, blown away by the kindness I’ve received recently. I hope my posts aren’t coming off as super depressed or anything. I KNOW I’ll be okay – it’s just this in-between period that has me questioning myself and everything around me. As Amy Poehler said: “Imagine spreading everything you care about on a blanket and then tossing the whole thing up in the air. The process of divorce is about loading that blanket, throwing it up, watching it all spin, and worrying what stuff will break when it lands.”  (Found via this Sarah Jio post on Glamour. PS…

    9 Dec 2014 | 7:59 pm
    I hate to admit it, but I feel like I’ve been operating in a haze for the past couple of months with the divorce. (Those words still want to make me vomit.)  It’s been a month since everything was finalized and I’ve been grappling with personal identity big time. The word I keep coming back to is unrooted. What’s in a name? Every time I go to fill out my name or sign something or give my email address, it’s inevitable I’ll get it wrong. And then there’s the instant pang of recognition that the name no longer belongs to me. That name encompassed…

    Not sure what is up with my recent nostalgia with clothes, but between the pleated skirt and this polka dot sweater dress, I am channeling my mom circa the early 90’s hardcore. (And yes, this is a GOOD thing!) There are polka dots. And it’s a sweater knit. And it’s something I swear my mom wore in the early 90s. And I love it SO.MUCH. I thought it would be a 100% disaster on me, but I just had so much fun wearing it that I forgot about the silhouettes I normally wear and just enjoyed it. For 5 seconds I debated adding a belt, but I just liked that it was comfortable and easy…

    Say what?!? I’m wearing PLEATS and a VEST and it’s AWESOME! I received two packages at my door recently – 1 from Gwynnie Bee (my poor postal workers – I know they must hate me always making them come to my door for a Gwynnie Bee drop off OR pick up) and 1 from Eloquii. I love Eloquii, but I hadn’t ordered anything from them recently as life in turmoil meant shopping was not on the top of my mind. Plus, I’m on the cusp of their sizing, so their bodycon items and sheath styles don’t work on my stomach or hips. Vest: Karen Kane Contrast Moto Vest c/o…

Like the thumb cuffs to keep the breeze from […]
