All I Want For Christmas Is … A 7-Pound Weight Loss

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.

“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.'”

Heidi Klum Doesn’t Want To Be A Gaunt Old Lady

“The ultimate beauty secret for a woman getting older is, ‘Don’t be too thin!’ It is always better to have a little meat on your bones. When you are just muscle, you end up being gaunt in the face, and that makes you look older by five or ten years.”

I Feel Sorry For The Marie Claire “Fatties” Author

I have a high threshold for sexist, sizeist, classist, and racist things that people write on the internet because I’ve seen so much of it over the years. But the MarieClaire.com article by Maura Kelly titled “Should ‘Fatties’ Get A Room?” — which we told you about yesterday — was above-and-beyond disgusting. Kelly wrote that… More »

The effects of bullying are in the news everywhere lately, from the teen girl, Megan Meier, who killed herself after being harassed on MySpace, to Rutgers freshman Tyler Clementi and the spate of copycat suicides that followed him.

Estonian Weight Loss Clinic Uses Fat Girl And Skinny Girl As “Before” And “After” Models

An Estonian weight loss clinic used two pretty blond women — one large and one skinny — to advertise its techniques by having them walk around wearing T-shirts that read “Before” and “After.” Clever gimmick, I’ll admit.

Catfight: Has Kelly Osbourne Sold Out With Her New Bikini Body?

As a teenager on “The Osbournes,” Kelly Osbourne was outspoken, opinionated and fat — and really comfortable in her own skin.

“The girl who eats her feelings” is a new trend-setting clique to emulate, says W magazine’s recent piece on back-to-school style.

Girl Talk: I Lost 100 Pounds (And Found Out What The World Thinks Of Fat People)

I come from a small-ish town in Oklahoma where we’ve never met a vegetable we couldn’t fry and the only thing more super-sized than our portions are the huge church complexes that alternate with fast-food restaurants along our roads.
