I think the answer is, love yourself because you are you. Be confident in yourself because you are you. Don't let the size you are dictate how you feel about yourself or how much confidence you have.
Green beauty is so much fun! It allows us to play, create, celebrate & express ourselves in so many powerful ways.
I've known smart women who've gone to extremes to hide the fact that they have to work for their figure. I've been one of them. I once got out of sharing bread pudding on a date by saying that the sight of it made me sad because it was served at my grandpa's shiva.
To find the few studies that say people who burn the midnight oil and snooze until noon are smarter and perform better on cognitive tasks taken later in the day than early birds, you may have to pull an all-nighter.
Here's what I say about it: You don't have to like your body fat, but if you do in fact have it (and we all do), wouldn't it make more sense to accept it for what it is and then go change it, rather than hating on it while it's there? After all it's just fat, right?
It's a MIRACLE... Last Thursday I returned from the doctor's and I was the happiest girl alive, ready to announce to the world that I'm five MONTHS P...
My apartment is quiet, so quiet in fact that after years of listening to free Pandora radio, last night I finally gave in and paid for the ad-free upg...

Taking care of your body should be a top priority. Unfortunately, in a world of flavored sodas and lazy Segways, we lose track of what it means to tak...
I suppose there's nothing wrong with it, seeing uber-fit young women as a way to imagine and motivate ourselves to go to the gym, but that's not really the kind of inner-motivation I need. Personally I find these type of images a bit demotivational.
We are born into this world knowing we and our body are the right size. Hating ourselves and our body are learned behaviors, as is the idea that "you can never be too thin."
While the anxiety attacks are gone, and I feel really great most of the time, I am still a work in progress. I am eager to embrace what's ahead for me as I continue to grow and evolve. I truly feel lucky to be happier and healthier, but always learning.
Every princess pees and poops several times every day, if her digestive tract is healthy. So why are we being uptight about our needs? Society and ...
I wouldn't be where I am today without taking chances and following my dreams -- then being open to changing my mind to chase another dream. We shouldn't get stuck on a path that makes us unhappy or unfulfilled -- and that goes for fitness and health too.
Once you begin to train with your focus on getting stronger and not stressing over the way you look, your training becomes more productive and efficient. You place that energy on learning how to move and perform better and in the process break mental barriers.
I got hooked on fitness for vanity reasons many years ago. But now that I'm a working mom, I do it because of the energy, focus and confidence it gives me. Exercise allows me to focus on something positive and forget the rest of my life for even 20 minutes, and that's so therapeutic!
When your professional title is "Skinny Girl," of course wearing your 4-year-old's pajama set is going to spark controversy. Bethenny Frankel's fortune gets bigger as she "helps" women get physically smaller.
It is time to stop perpetuating this cycle of men and women being considered "normal" and "praised" for unhealthy relationships with food.
To truly make these things happen sometimes we must push our bodies and minds to their limits, step out of our comfort zones and force ourselves to give it everything and more, even if we don't want to. Here are the things you don't want to do, but should do to make the most of your workout!
We've all had run-ins with the internal naysayers, the limiting beliefs, or those inner-critics that keep us from showing up as our best selves. It's ...
