You’re so beautiful, but…

Originally posted on The Manifest-Station Awhile ago, I was having dinner with just my dad. This is an anomaly in and of itself, but it happened. I remember that night clearly because I cried. Crying is a rarity for me; especially in front of people. I don’t remember what brought on the statement. I don’t […]

Blast from the past, originally posted July, 2009: You’ve heard of the golden rule right? It’s an idea I personally try to live by every day. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. So simple yet so poignant. In most situations is makes perfect sense. It breeds empathy and Lord knows […]

Feeding Tube Diets And The UnEthical Doctors Who Prescribe Them

There’s a new, horrifying diet being endorsed by medical professionals.  Beware! The K-E diet involves a feeding tube and restricts the patients intake to a certain number of calories. I’ve said since day one that our society is creating eating disorders, I am not sure there is another such blatant examp le of proof. I’m […]

Obviously many of us here are used to living in bodies that are outside the perceived “norm” (if we want to avoid even trying to define what the “norm” is anyway).  But there are times when our bodies seem to intersect. For example, it’s generally assumed that all brides will try to lose weight.  It’s […]

What would you do to feel beautiful?

Guest post from Stephanie Body image is a sensitive subject no matter where you are in the world, but after watching National Geographic’s television program “Taboo,” I gained some harsh perspective on the extremes people will reach to fulfill their desires to feel beautiful. From neck stretching in Thailand to breast ironing in Cameroon to silicone […]

“Just the way you are” by Bruno Mars — er — Rihanna?

Filed under Fat Talk, Featured, Self Esteem

Every time I hear “Just the way you are” by Bruno Mars I get ticked off. Why do women need someone to tell us we are beautiful, or funny, or skinny, or whatever? Why can’t we just stand on our own? Why can’t we take a compliment? The really pathetic part about this song is […]

Since you all enjoyed Elizebeth Turnquist’s post the first time around, here it is again — a blast from the past … WATRD ————- I remember when Ricki Lake was fat. Not just plump or curvaceous but unmistakably fat.  I was 15 in 1989 when I watched the made-for-TV movie “Babycakes”.  It was the first […]
