Kirstie Alley on Oprah Talking About Her Weight Gain

Did you see Kirstie Alley on Oprah? She was on to talk about her weight gain, and her desire to develop her own weight loss program. The interview wasn't at all what I expected. She talked to Oprah about spending this past year researching weight loss (for her soon to be announced weight loss program), while gaining even more weight than she had lost on Jenny Craig. It was a bit odd. ...more

Mommybloggers are on Oprah!

Some of you know that I'm not a very big Oprah fan. OK that's putting it mildly. I rant about Oprah in the same way I rant about marriage being a tool of the patriarchy. I can be obsessive in my Oprah angst. This is not a post where I'm going to rant about Oprah (or patriarchy) this is a post where I'm going to say "OMG! Mommybloggers are going to be on Oprah! How cool is THAT?!" I know, you're shocked right? Shocked that mommybloggers are going to be on the Oprah show (finally) and shocked that I'm excited about it. Well don't be shocked about either. ...more

Valerie Bertinelli's Weight Loss: Inspiring or Controversial?

As most of you already know, I've been struggling with my weight for several years now. And for that reason, I find myself easily able to relate to these two women. After watching that show I felt more motivated then ever to continue eating healthy and losing weight. I don't think I was alone, but as always, there was also a backlash. Did you see the show? Or the cover of People magazine? What did you think? Inspiration or controversy? ...more

I'm definitely inspired by Bertinelli's weight loss -- I couldn't believe how much MORE ...more
