New Year, New You? Heck NO! – The New Year’s Anti-Resolution

How did you feel about the usual barrage of new year’s resolution marketing this year? Did it annoy you? Make you feel like you should join in? Did it piss you off and make you want to rebel against it? However much it affected you, or didn’t, odds are it did affect you a little […]

The Walking Dread

Filed under Body Image, Weight Stigma

It is Healthy Weight Week.  Because I have written about HWW for the last three years (see archives of Tasty Morsels) I won’t spend a great deal of time explaining it here.  In a word HWW was developed over 20 years ago by Francie Berg to raise awareness of the damage that diets can cause […]
