Channeling the cheerleader of my youth, I thought we’d try something different here at WeAretheRealDeal this week. I’m calling it “Megaphone Monday.”

Watching all the devastation following the earthquake in Haiti Tuesday, I couldn’t help but feel — like so many of us watching it unfold– absolutely helpless.

Twitter Madness

Filed under HAES

With permission, I borrowed the idea for this post from Judith Matz, LCSW, blogger at Diet Survivors Group and co-author of The Diet Survivor’s Handbook: 60 Lessons in Eating, Acceptance and Self-Care. At another point, I’ll share some of the wisdom from that book but it was the wisdom in her post Magazine Madness that […]

[Photograph: BATEGA on Flickr] Throughout 2009, I spent a lot of time thinking about and writing about my weight on my blog, What I Weigh Today. On January 2, 2009, I weighed a few pounds more that I wanted to, and I hoped that making myself accountable through blogging and making an effort to be […]

Stacy and Clinton (ad)dress gastric bypass on WNTW

I have been a fan of What Not To Wear since its first season (anyone else remember Wayne, the male co-host before Clinton?) and have nearly always appreciated Stacy and Clinton’s take on how to dress oneself.  One of their main mantras is “Dress the body you have now, not the body you wish you […]

ALL Women Are Real

A trending topic here at WeAretheRealDeal this week has been about comparing/contrasting the “real-ness” of model Jennifer Hawkins and the “plus-sized” models displayed in V Magazine. Let me be clear: ALL WOMEN ARE REAL. No matter your size or shape … you breathe, you have a heart-beat, you have feelings. As far as I’m concerned, […]

I’m not hungry, so why am I still eating?

I have been using the Sensa Weight-Loss System for a little over a month now, (I won a 6 month supply at a Twitter party last year). It has definitely curbed my appetite. It’s as if my body has no particular desire for food. Amazing right? Problem is I am still eating! “What?” you say. […]

Jennifer Hawkins: Unairbrushed, nude, bogus effort gets slammed

Filed under Body Image

Here’s an update on Roni’s post “Baby Step? Untouched Photo on Cover of Marie Claire” which discussed the photo of Former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins on the cover of Marie Claire. As it turns out, the fact that she is NUDE is getting more attention than the fact that she is UNAIRBRUSHED. Ahhh yeah — […]

Just got this tip from Kat from Germany on the preview of V Magazines “Size” Issue scheduled to be on newsstands by January 14th. So what do we think? MORE PICTURES AFTER THE JUMP

Baby Step? Untouched Photo on Cover of Marie Claire

January 6, 2010 by  
Filed under Body Image

“What we’re talking about here is just one small part of the much wider spectrum of body image, self esteem and eating disorder issues and that small part is actually about digital enhancement and retouching of images. It’s so excessive in magazines these days and young girls and women are constantly telling us that they […]
