More on the Positive - Instead of focusing on weight, scales or muscles, think about the positive characteristics you possess…humor, creativity, passion. Focusing your positive characteristics can help you build self-esteem and positive body image.
Forget Black and White Thinking – No food is “bad” or “good.” Food provides us with energy and nutrients but in varying amounts. By refraining from labeling foods, we can help prevent…Continue

I am actually amazed by how many women have approached me for advice on how to deal with the way their own mothers and fathers are affecting their children’s self-esteem with well intentioned, but often hurtful comments aimed at weight and appearance. It’s a cycle that needs to be broken, and it’s a tough one to break.
It’s estimated that by the time a girl is 17 years old she’s seen approximately 250,ooo messages from the media telling her what she’s supposed to look like.…Continue

For the past two weeks I have been counting calories. As someone with a history of an eating disorder this can be a dangerous thing. For this very reason, as a rule, I don’t count calories. But two weeks ago I realized I would not be returning to running as quickly as I expected and I began to doubt my body’s ability to get back to its pre-pregnancy weight without my normal activity level. I decided to “help” things along by starting to track what I ate and…Continue

Google, Facebook, Twitter . . . a number of sites give you space to share a personal photo. You need to take full advantage of this because nothing says “I don’t care” like a blank profile box. However, when you’re operating a business or presenting yourself as a professional you need to exercise extreme caution. The wrong…Continue

The phrase “Google me” used to be considered a highly pretentious suggestion but it has since gone mainstream. The multitude of social media sites, business websites, publications and pretty much everything down to your high school reunion page show up on Google.
However, even if you’re not quite ready to suggest that to a potential client or customer, there’s a pretty good chance that people are doing it anyway. Whether people are Googling you or your business, it’s wise to consider…Continue

The shape and size of one’s posterior can speak volumes without saying a word. I like to think mine says, “I like to dance and workout, but I also frequently indulge my weakness for all things chocolate.” Thank you Butt. Well said, well spoken.
Butt and I have not always been on such great terms.…Continue

Hello YTS Readers!
I was attracted to this the moment I saw it. As a women, I know how hard we can be on ourselves. Our bodies are often subjected to various changes throughout our lives. Think about it. Throughout the course of a women’s life we deal with the effects of menstrual cycles, child-birth, and menopause. …
A scary look into our body image and how we feel about ourselves. Take the quiz and share your results! Don't be shy, I scored a 27.

I'm a rag mag reader. Yep, I am. I picked up one today that caught my attention because it had Kelly Clarkson and Khloe Kardashian on the front, and supposedly their weight loss secrets were on the inside.
I was curious. Don't judge me.
I read that Khloe Kardashian is claiming to be a size 6. Okay, that number seems to be very popular with celebrities when they lose weight. They all end up at a size 6, don't they? Seems to ring bells all over the place, doesn't it?…
If someone would’ve told me two years ago that one day I’d describe getting undressed and having my picture taken as “liberating,” I would’ve thought they were insane. Thankfully, I’m not the same girl I was two years ago. As a special Valentine’s Day gift for my husband I stripped down for a boudoir photo shoot. Little did I…
