A Day of Yes

(3) Comments | Posted June 26, 2014 | 11:19 AM

I say "no" a lot. I mean I say "no" to my kids a lot. Around strangers and friends whom I care considerably less about, I seem to struggle with limits and "no"s, and yet when it comes to my kids, "no" is almost reflexive at this point.

I Am Entitled to Body Hate

(10) Comments | Posted March 13, 2014 | 1:18 PM

Yesterday was not a pretty day. I was not feeling it. I was not feeling it at all.

I was getting ready for an event and none of my clothes were agreeing with me. Mountains of them all over the closet in protest. Big piles of nope. And since I've...

3 Women You Should Be Channeling This Year

(3) Comments | Posted January 28, 2014 | 3:13 PM

When you are plus size and have self esteem issues, it's not uncommon to hate January 1st.

Once I eventually got past the dread of imminent resolution failure and looming hyper-inadequacy, I tabled New Years as nothing more than the passing of a calendar year. No more resolutions. No more...

What Marriage Looks Like, 9 Years And 3 Kids Later

(7) Comments | Posted January 9, 2014 | 12:05 PM

Andy and I forgot our wedding anniversary.

Then we suddenly remembered the night before, except we both incorrectly assumed it was our 10-year anniversary, which left us both scrambling.

Crap, what is the traditional gift for 10 years?

Wikipedia says tin.

Can it be...

How Do I Teach My Daughter to Love Her Body?

(19) Comments | Posted December 17, 2013 | 8:17 AM

How do I teach my daughter to love her body?

Good question, I don't know. It's actually terrifying. I have no experience liking my body before age 29. I failed in elementary school. I bombed in high school. College was a blurry mess. I can't sit here and...

Do We Really Have To Put A Ring On It?

(19) Comments | Posted October 15, 2013 | 10:23 AM

My husband and I have stopped wearing our wedding rings.

I'm not entirely sure when it happened, and I wasn't even really aware of it until we went on vacation with a few other couples, and I thoughtlessly tossed my ring in the hotel safe.

You're not wearing your ring?

What If Your Spanx Could Talk?

We spent last weekend at a wedding for one of my husband's college friends, and it was one of those situations where he was in the wedding, but I was not, and that's fine. Seriously. The less I need longline strapless bras in my life, the better. They always start...

Lo que pasó cuando hice el amor todos los días durante un año

He hecho el amor todos los días durante un año, y no te lo he contado.

Pero lo he grabado, así que puedes verlo -> ¡aquí!

Es broma.

Ni siquiera estaba segura de que fuera a hacerlo de verdad, pero aquí estamos. *golpecito en el espacio vacío en el sofá*

Je plaisante.

Je n'étais même pas sûre d'aller jusqu'au bout, mais voilà, nous y sommes. *tapote la place vide sur le canapé*

But I did video tape it, so check it out -> here!

Just kidding.

I wasn't even sure I was going to go into it, but here we are. *pats the empty space on...

My Husband Saved His Life

(13) Comments | Posted July 15, 2013 | 11:44 AM

My husband and I have been sitting on the couches of our living room, staring at a TV that is not on, in complete silence, for about 10 minutes.

Aside from my tear-filled "thank you," in the center of the restaurant, we haven't spoken since 12:05 p.m. Eastern Time.

I'm Not A Fat Enabler

(429) Comments | Posted July 11, 2013 | 11:03 AM

I was recently dining with friends when one of them told me that the work I was doing was just enabling people to be fat. I was a "fat enabler."

You know, because if we give "them" clothes to wear and self-esteem, we're basically just encouraging them.... like...

What My 4-Year-Old Taught Me About Beauty

My husband and I are the same age. Born a mere 23 days apart.

But, if you ask Jude, our math savant son, Andy is 32. I am 30. So, fine, I lied about my age to my 6-year-old son who could give all of zero f*cks about the number....

Why I'm Revealing My Weight On The Internet

So the outpouring of commentary regarding my bikini post, and the subsequent news sources that have picked it up, has been amazing. I'm glad that it touched such a nerve, but it also left me doing two really weird things.

1. Defending my legit plus size-ness....

Why I'm Wearing A Bikini On The Internet

So, when I started do this whole thing where once a year, I put on a bathing suit and go in public, I thought, yes. This feels brave. This feels strong. And it was, until one day it wasn't.

It doesn't necessarily feel...

There's been lots of drama recently about Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer and her decision to bring all the Yahoo employees out of their at-home locations and back into the office, and I think everyone is standing on different sides of the line in the sand throwing words at each other...

Fat Shaming Doesn't Work -- Here's Why

(299) Comments | Posted February 2, 2013 | 10:18 AM

Obesity is an epidemic. We see it all over the news: Overweight people with their heads cut off walking down the street. Fat kids with faces blurred just enough to maybe protect their identity, but not enough to tell if they are actively eating food.

You see, we need to...
