Is it okay to state a preference for non-surgically enhanced bodies in entertainment?  Or are we passing judgment (specifically on women) where we should be allowing a right to do what one wants? The New York Times published an article today about a movement in Hollywood to hire actors and actresses who have not had […]

I recently read this great article by Kristin Armstrong (ex of famous cycler Lance Armstrong) in the May edition of Runner’s World magazine. It was a great message to everyone, that Armstrong applied to both running/working out and her life. Basically Armstrong said that in a world where most of us feel the weight of […]

To Bleach or Not to Bleach – That is the Question

Like many women (and I suppose some men) I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. I have to admit, I have not always treated it as well as I should have. I dyed the hell out of it in high school. Green, pink, red, purple, blue, I never met a Manic Panic hair color […]

Through all my years of compulsive overeating /bingeing, my body weight has fluctuated. During those times, the things that were important to me were – how I looked and where in my closet are the clothes that will fit the particular weight I was at. I calculated a few months ago that, not including my […]

The real Britney steps forward…..and deserves a round of applause.

Say what you will about Britney Spears, but I gotta tell ya, she earned some of my respect back with this brave photo shoot reported by Daily Mail.  The 29 year old pop-star allowed her body to be photographed without airbrushing, showing cellulite, bruises and all. “Imperfections” that can be clearly seen in the un-airbrushed […]
