    Hi folks,I figured I'd try letting my husband dress me for our latest date night so I could both see what he picked/likes and teach him a bit about how to put together outfits.  The result wasn't too bad I think:Top from Macy's, Necklace by Suzanne Love Jewelry (Raleigh, NC local who can be found on Etsy), Bag from Target, Skirt from Torrid, and shows from TomsI included it along with a couple more oufits I wore to the family reunion last weekend in my latest blog post, which you can find here - http://lydiadickson.blogspot.com/2015/08/blue-moon-fashion.htmlThere's also…

  • Misinterpreting Intuitive Eating

    Does Every Woman Have an Eating Disorder?

    28 Jul 2015 | 6:51 am
    As a proponent of intuitive eating, I'm often presented with challenges to the model that seem to misinterpret its basic premise. I've heard some interpret intuitive eating to mean that we're advocating that people eat cake each and every time they're hungry.But that's really missing the point. Intuitive eating is a flexible practice that encourages you to trust your body - but it encourages you to be mindful of the signals your body is sending before, during, and after you eat.In her piece, "Why I'm Not an Intuitive Eating Coach," Isabel Foxen Duke offers some additional misconceptions…

    So, I should probably warn you. This entire episode (all 16+ minutes) is about what God says about fat folks. If that’s not your jam then maybe you should skip this particular one. If it is your jam then I think you will enjoy this. It’s long but it’s packed with SOLID advice and direction from my buddy Jim Thompson. If it’s not your jam and you would like it to be then reach out to me and we can chat about it.    Don’t forget to enter the contest. All you have to do is send an e-mail to

    One other question.So I recently bought this shirt that is mostly backless. However, I don't have a bra that doesn't show with it.Are there any good plus-size backless bras.The only one I can really find via Google is this one: http://www.barenecessities.com/fashion-forms-go-bare-ultimate-boost-backless-strapless-bra-16540_product.htm?pf_id=FashionForms16540&search=Not sure if I quite trust adhesive for my DDs. Has anyone had any luck with these? I seem to recall they used to make ones with just plastic, see-through backs. Do they still make those?

    Dear People Magazine,I recently happened upon your exclusive video, Kendra Wilkinson on Why She Can't Really Have a Six-Pack Right Now, and I wanted to share a few thoughts.Kendra's six-pack, or lack thereof, isn't news. Some may argue that all celebrity gossip lacks journalistic integrity, but this item is particularly insignificant.More, Kendra shouldn't have to defend the fact that her abs currently lack chiseling. No excuses are necessary for her body shape or size. And suggesting that she doesn't have a six-pack "right now" implies a promise of abdominal contouring to come. People…

    You recently accused me of wanting you to be fat. Here's what I've been thinking. . . . Long after we part ways, I'll remember the sound of your voice, the tender and emotional moments we shared, those times we burst out laughing together. I'll have little memory of what you weighed.I have no investment in wanting you, according to your eating disorder, to be fat. What I care about is your brain, that it's nourished sufficiently for you to think clearly and be yourself again. I'd like to see you return to the you you were before this ugly illness hijacked your anatomy and convinced you to…

But they’re real! Yeah, I’m real eloquent at times. *eyeroll* To be honest, I feel like many in the Fitbloggin’ community just “get” me in a way that is hard for others to understand. Blogging and…
