Body image and sustainable habits
Wednesday, March 16, 2011      5 comments

I'm starting to explore burlesque. I took my second class over the weekend. I knew it would be fun and challenging, but what I didn't know (or expect) is having a little body image meltdown. As most people who know me know, I'm a nudist. I'll ... Read more
A couple reminders for myself
Sunday, February 06, 2011      6 comments

Every so often I need to write myself and remind me of my own wisdom. This is one of those times so I'm pulling a couple things I wrote a few years ago that still help me. Some of you probably remember seeing these, but I needed to re-read them ... Read more
Fat Awareness Time
Tuesday, February 01, 2011      9 comments

I'm reading Health At Every Size right now. It got me thinking about all of the wonderful people I've known who are plus sized. The media wants to demonize fat and they try to portray fat people in the worst light possible, perpetuating the myth... Read more

This will be a short entry. I just want to thank all of my SP friends who've come around and said something cheerful while I've been in this funk over the last week. I'd especially like to thank all of the wonderful gals who've joined the Health... Read more

This past week has had its ups and downs (btw, every time I hear that phrase I have to chuckle...there's an officer here in Salt Lake City whose name is Upson Downs. SERIOUSLY). I think I'm in another manic period which means loads of creativ... Read more

My ankle is finally about 90% healed. There's still pain and swelling, especially when the weather is bad. I'm going in to the doctor on Thursday to make sure it's been healing properly, but there were some positive things that happened last wee... Read more

A New Spark Team for the New Year
Friday, December 31, 2010      2 comments

I was lying in bed thinking about falling asleep when I started thinking about size acceptance and health at every size. A few years ago I looked on SP for an HAES team, but no one had created one. It didn't occur to me to do such a thing. Well.... Read more

I thought I'd post this for a few reasons: 1) They're my cousins and they're awesome. 2) It's an amazing story and they can use all the help they can get. 3) When you are feeling sorry for yourself, sometimes hearing someone else's proble... Read more

For the last week I've been keeping track of what I'm eating. I haven't done this in so long. Right now I'm simply keeping track and seeing what I'm doing. The good news: Overall I'm amazed that I'm not eating 2000-3000 calories on most days. I ... Read more

I don't check into SP nearly as much as I used to. Life is getting in the way! For everyone who has been asking about my sister (and thank you for all of the support and wonderful advice), I just found out that she has decided to move to Mexic... Read more
The last couple weeks
Thursday, March 11, 2010      3 comments

I mentioned that it has been a rather bad couple weeks. Here's a bit of what happened: A couple Saturdays ago I woke up and my wrist hurt. I assumed I slept on it wrong and I went about doing my regular Saturday stuff. By 2 o'clock the pain ha... Read more

I read this in one of my groups and I had to share. It's been a rough couple weeks for me so this really cheered me up! Recently, in a large city in a developed country , a poster featuring a young, thin, tan woman appeared in the window o... Read more
