According to most fashion magazines, it's important to identify your body shape and dress appropriately for it. Since mine falls somewhere between "velociraptor" and "bean bag chair," I'm excited to see what summer fashions will best compliment my figure.
ll thoughts about your own body are reinforced. You reinforce stigma in the person next to you, regardless of their size. Your children are taught to see bodies as problematic. And the judgment most certainly does not liberate anyone to live their life with reverence and grace in the body they have.
Over the years many women have asked me about getting into shape and when I suggest Weight Workouts most say they are afraid of getting BIG! I've expl...
As we worked on setting her goals together, Martha knew she wanted to find a balance between good nutrition and being able to enjoy her life without constantly thinking about food. BUT she wasn't ready to let go of weight loss goals either.
The research on porn and labiaplasty appears to be like most other porn research: weak and, as far as results go, unconvincing. But, like other areas of porn research, that hasn't stopped some journalists, anti-porn activists, and scholars from making dramatic claims.
I did not anticipate that six weeks AFTER my baby was born, people would still ask me, "When are you due?" Ouch! Give a girl a break -- my uterus hadn't even had time to return to its original size yet.
That's right. By the time you're a grown-up kick ass woman making it rain, you'll still only feel half as much body-love as a teenage boy. Not quite the pace most of us want our self confidence and self-love to develop.
Yes, I am fat, healthy, plump and everything else you want to call me. I will use the word "fat" without feeling sorry for myself and without cringing. Fat is fat, but fat is not ugly, funny or unacceptable.
If one woman cancer or no cancer sees this and it moves her to love herself unconditionally, it was meant to be. Because here's the deal, the way we s...
Awake girls might be a little angry. But they know that the poison is outside, not inside. And they'll work to clear the air for all of us.
My body is right for me because it works well for me. I'm guessing your body does, too. Even if we've been taught not to like it because it doesn't look the way culture tells us it should look, your body is still strong, capable and willing to do what you need it to.
Undressing for a shower I catch a glimpse of myself postpartum in the mirror. Normally I quickly glance away and get back to business, I know I am not physically where I would like to be. But this time I pause, for a long overdue look over.
There's no mistaking it: you are my daughter in every way. Before you were born, I wondered if you'd look like me or like your dad. I secretly hoped you would look like me -- not because I don't think your dad is super cute (I do!), but because I've always dreamed of having a mini-me.
There are two things that are a staple of Instagram, food pictures and people wearing next to nothing. Typically the two aren't synonymous, except for in the case of @BurritoFever, where Brooklyn based artist, Charlie Quiroz, combines his two loves, burritos and exhibitionism.
I don't have a thigh gap. And in this moment I'm not working toward having one. Stunning. I know. Imagine that. I get it, it's not news that women are held to impossibly high standards when it comes to what our bodies are suppose to look like.
