Jiggly

My three-year-old son loves to jiggle my belly. I was sitting on my bed nude on Friday, as I got ready for work, and he sat down next to me. “I want to jiggle your breast!” “Okay, honey. Be gentle.” And he patted it with his splayed hand, carefully, enjoying the way that it is […]

ExerciseFail

I still hate exercise. For the last couple of weeks, the escalator in my downtown metro station has been broken. The first day, I climbed the stairs. Not a good idea. Since my schedule got so hectic and I started sleeping in a bit longer in the morning to compensate for later nights, my husband […]

Cravings

I really want to write a longer post on spring in Seattle (yes, it’s definitely arriving) but one of those things I’m still adjusting to as part of this FA process is responding to cravings, unexpected ones, that leap up and grab me…and not punishing myself for having them. I’ve had several boxes of Girl […]

To expand on my last comment in the last post, there are some major differences to me between intuitive eating and calorie restriction. Again, this is all my own point of view – polite debate in comments is more than welcome. Emphasis on the “polite” – my blog is on the Notes feed and I […]

Semantics and FA

Very frank discussion of the emotions triggered in me by the word “dieting” – may be triggering to others as well. Over on Silentbeep’s ‘Dieting is Dieting’ post, there’s an interesting discussion in comments, which I’ve seen elsewhere on what the word “dieting” actually means. My husband, and Atchka, both claim that the word “dieting” […]

I’ve seen the story about the Bellevue couple that starved their baby mentioned all over the place. My first reaction? Well, folks, that’s what happens when you have a weight-obsessed society that prioritizes thinness over health. My second reaction? There but for the grace of God/Goddess go I… Six weeks before my son was born, […]

I hate going to doctors. That conversation yesterday, that I thought I could brush off fairly easily, has lingered. I found myself desperately wanting to EAT EAT EAT! yesterday afternoon, partly because I forgot my high-protein snacks, a mistake rectified today, but also because there was that deep emotional despair that always seems to bubble […]

Got an ED? Recovering? Tough!

I’ve been searching for a size-friendly physician in the Seattle area for some time now. My GP has been nice enough but I know that, deep down, she’s desperate to tell me to lose weight. I could deal with that but her assistant has gotten very bad about returning calls (I have asthma and am […]

The real irony of the BeautifulPeople.com story as covered on multiple media outlets, but most prominently re-posted from the BBC website, is that I have no doubt that if the BBC were able to do so, it too would ban “fatties” from “roam[ing] their site.”  After five years in the UK, during which I watched […]
