This weekend, six amazing speakers joined me for the Body Positive Dating Master Class. We talked about everything from how to find partners who understand body acceptance, to how to improve your sex life, to how to “feel cute” more of the time.

Guys, I didn’t know it, but I have 4.27 signs of aging hair.
We often get the message that being attractive means making big changes to our appearance. So this week, I want to share 9 deceptively simple things that you can do to feel more attractive TODAY (no diet pills or teeth whitener required)! I recommend trying just one tip and going from there!
Envision Your Diet-Free Life
One of the many things that I dislike about diets is that they’re so all-consuming. Personally, I think that dieters need to think and talk about their diets all the time because it’s really not a natural thing to be on a diet.
Those of you who read my posts often know that I’m kind of a comedy nerd. Even though I often find Apatow movies somewhat sexist, I still watch them to see some of my favorite comedic actors doing their thing. And also, I’ve had a thing for Paul Rudd since Clueless, as my pinterest boards […]
Ending The War With Your Body
It started even before New Year’s. The onslaught of ads and messaging telling you that the fun was over. Eating for pleasure, partying, etc. You had done too much. You passed the limit. And now it is time to make amends, say your mea culpas, and get your ass to WeightWatchers/JennyCraig/ LucilleRoberts/NutriSystem. It’s time to […]
Virgie Tovar is a fierce fatty to be reckoned with. And her new book, Hot & Heavy: Fierce Fat Girls On Life, Love & Fashion, is truly wonderful. If you want to read something that will literally make you laugh, cry, and change your life, get your hands on this one. (The book even features two […]

Finally, The Biggest Loser, NBC’s heinous, fat-hate juggernaut, is adding kids into this mix. Specifically, two 13-year-olds and a 16-year-old who are competing, sort of, in Season 14 of Yelling At Fat People The Biggest Loser.

You Won’t Wear a Bikini to the Office
So, pretty much every week, I’m here, writing a post about why loving your body is TOTES AWESOME (as the kids say). I may be writing about Health At Every Size® or diet industry lies or handling the holidays as a fat person, but underneath it all, I’m saying that loving your body, loving yourself, approving […]
In news that you may have missed, a recent study showed that showing women pictures of fat bodies made them like fat bodies more.
The Non-Dieter’s Holiday Survival Guide
It seems that every year around this time, I get gazillions of emails from folks who are nervous about the holidays. Explaining to your family that you don’t want to know the number of calories in pecan pie, that you’re not interested in that new diet book that worked for your nephew’s former roommate, and […]
A few weeks ago, I found myself at the Queens Center Mall, killing time before my chiropractor appointment.
