It’s January, which officially means weight loss reality TV season is in full swing. I’ve been so busy watching shows about dieting that I’ve barely had time to binge on cookies. I guess that’s the point. There’s “The Biggest Loser,” “Shedding for the Wedding,” “Ruby,” “One Big Happy Family,” “Heavy,” “I Used to be Fat,” and “Dance Your A** Off” to name a few. It’s a huge decision to choose the right one to help me confront my emotional eating issues. Chips and guacamole, how you haunt me. Now that I’ve watched them all, here’s the breakdown of the weight loss shows I would shun, shag, or marry. Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
“I thought I looked fabulous before and nobody else did. So, whatever … Actually, now I wear bigger clothes because I don’t like the way people stare at me. I liked it before. Now, you’re just looking at me for the wrong reasons. Before, you were actually looking at me for a real reason.”
’Tis the season for peace, joy and weight gain. After Christmas and New Year’s, we will all jiggle a bit more. Women will feel like kicking themselves for their weight gain and will suffer from self-loathing that lasts long past the chocolate free-for-all of Easter.
Some would argue that the slogan “Nothing feels as good as skinny feels” promotes anorexia. But ask a Weight Watchers member, and she might say this mantra, which I’ve heard repeated in meetings, kept her on track to healthy weight loss. I can see both sides of the debate, especially since decorator Jonathan Adler, who created this pillow for Kirna Zabête, is known for his cheeky designs. So does this pillow offend you?

According to an essay in today’s Daily Mail, my desire to drop 5 to 10 pounds is about as common as a winter cold. Seven pounds, it seems is the magic number — the “holy grail” of weight loss. It’s an amount significant enough that, no matter what one’s starting weight, clothes will fit differently (for a lot of us, that means “better”). It’s also, as essayist Jenny Dickinson, says: “a loss [that] is physically noticeable on most women, so it’s in the region that will gain us recognition for our efforts.” And a seven pound weight loss is also relatively easy to achieve for most people.

It’s day 22 of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge, which means there’s only about a week left, and things are looking good. I’ve been using Karin Herzog‘s Dynamic Duo Anti-Cellulite Kit for about three weeks, and it seems to be working. By the way, at the end of my experiment, we’ll be offering a deal on the Herzog products, so you can try them yourself.
Now, though, there’s another issue. Keep reading »
“I could see why this industry is so f**ked up, because at 95 pounds, I would literally look at myself in the mirror and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ I had no shape, no boobs, no ass… All you saw was bone. I was like, ‘This looks gross.’”
—Mila Kunis on her 20-pound weight loss for the movie “Black Swan,” which opens Dec. 3. In another interview she said she thought she looked like Gollum from “The Lord of the Rings” at that weight. Now I’m picturing Gollum in a tutu. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Welcome to Day 2 of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge in which I attempt to get rid of my cellulite, and we all spend a couple of minutes a day contemplating the current state of my rump. After I announced this groundbreaking experiment yesterday, several of you made comments along the lines of, as meredith806 put it, “Pics or it didn’t happen.” Keep reading »
So, a while back, I wrote a post about how I was going to attempt to get rid of my cellulite, and let you all know what happened. In the interim, though, life got in the way. My butt wasn’t my primary focus; other things were. Now, I’ve got plenty of time to think about my rear-end. For the next 30 days, I’m going to be using Karin Herzog anti-cellulite cream to see if it really gets rid of cellulite, and I’ll be blogging all the while. After the jump, Day 1. Keep reading »
