Shame is the Problem, not the Scale
“I’m traumatized!” That was my answer to “how was your day?”
I had had a bra fitting. I went in thinking I was a 36C and walked out a 34DD! I couldn’t believe it! DD! Me? Couldn’t be! Those letters conjured pictures in my head t...

“Don’t be a quitter.” “Quitters never win.” “It’s always too early to quit.”
Pardon my language, but that is garbage!

There are over 68 Million hits to the question “How to take a compliment.”
That is a crazy, powerful indicator of how hard it can be to accept positive feedback and how conditioned we are to deflect kindness or acknowledgement of our accomplishments.

When I was recovering from having surgery (again) after a motorcycle accident that broke my leg and took my ability to walk for nearly a year, I was depressed, hurting body and soul.

Cellulite- What it is and What it isn’t
I was 19, in a college dance class, when I caught a glimpse of my cellulite for the first time.
It may have been there for years, it may have arrived along with the Sophomore 15 (I delayed that little American ritual by one whole...
