When I Finally Accept it...

I am not sure if I am writing this for myself, for others, for attention, for sympathy, or just to write something that someone else might find. I hate the phrase "Plus-Size". I hate it for women, I hate it for men, I hate it for kids. I hate the word "Average". I hate that I do not like what I see in the mirror, am too lazy to work out, scared to be judged, worry about what others think about me, that I judge other people for my same insecurities. I am frustrated that I love fashion, hair, makeup but feel restricted by my size and body image....more

NaBloPoMo Day 5

All about stuffing that size 12 body into a size 10 dress and how wearing scrubs on a daily basis can be hazardous to your waistline.  But I like wearing pajamas to work.http://caldreamsquirrel.blogspot.com/2011/11/sausage-stuffing.html...more

My Flabby Friends

Mr. W and I decided to tackle our first building project together. We had been at Cost Plus World Market, my favorite candy store for home décor I covet, when we came across a shelving system that doubled as a full length mirror. It was gorgeous, made of dark wood, and swiveled so you could use the shelves on one side to store all your miscellaneous crap and then turn it around to hide it all while you checked out your appearance on the mirror side. For a clutter monger like me, this was a brilliant way to make my mess look chic....more

Why I Broke Up With My Scale

I had put a scale on my registry for my wedding, thinking that I wanted it. It came in a box with a bow from my sister-in-law, and I was even enthusiastic about it at the time. That is, I was, until I started using it. The relationship between me and my new scale quickly became a love/hate one. I found that we were constantly fighting with one another... "no!" I would shout, "That is NOT my weight!" To which it replied, "yes, it most certainly is." ...more

When Is Chocolate Not Chocolate?

Dear HerMelnessI have two girls both under the age of 10.  I already see their over fondness for chocolate and I am afraid they will end up with the same lifelong weight issues I have been plagued with because of it. How do I start to reverse what I see becoming their own vicious circle?...more

Pre-Pregnancy Jeans - Friend or Foe?

“I’M IN MY PRE-PREGNANCY JEANS!!!!” I shrieked excitedly from the upstairs landing, thinking perhaps my announcement could be heard around the world. I had no idea that at that moment, Parker was walking down the stairs. The manic, celebratory wail must have been a shock to his little system because the poor little guy fell on his butt and slid all the way down to the wood floor below and then laid there, stunned. I was undeterred. I pranced downstairs (hoping the top of my butt didn’t fall out of the top of the jeans at the same time) to flaunt my stuff....more

Feed My Soul. Not My Thighs. (They've had enough.)

Here’s what I’m thinking.  I need goals.  I need self-improvement.  I want a better body.  I want it all – shiny hair, white teeth, “gorgeous gams,” increased energy, muscles you can SEE, do I need to go on?  But I’ve been down this road before (and here I am again), and it just doesn’t sound like fun to “crack down” and count my points and berate myself into doing SOMETHING, anything about it (losing weight, getting active, being healthy overall).  ...more
