Victory or Defeat

Does anyone else have the strictest inner diet plan police officer whose punishment of choice is extreme guilt? Yes? No? Is it just me?   Every time I have tried to lose weight in the history of my life this has been a battle for me. I am always trying to find a balance where…

Womanhood Sucks. Period.

Women can never catch a break. Everything we have is by the mere sweat, tears, and devastation of the misbehaved women who came before us. We should thank our Suffragettes, Rosa Parks-es, Rosie the Riveters, Frida Kahlos, Marie Curies, and Malalas daily for what they have provided for us. I am ever grateful for the liberties that…

Sophomore Slump

It has been about four months since we began this project. At this point I feel like there is not a lot that is new. I know what it takes to lose the weight. I understand which foods are good for me and which are bad. I have learned enough about the general calorie amounts…

Tindering My Resignation

This week I: quit my dream job, booked four dates, gave my number to a stranger in a bar, and lost ten pounds. Now, you may recall that my only goals for this week were to “get my 5lb chip from Weight Watchers” and “Go on a date.” Instead I did the entirety of the goals for week 1, 3,…

Faking it

Rachell and I finished our most recent photo shoot a few weeks ago. It is a themed shoot and I am so excited to share the pictures! The thing about this shoot however, is that it was definitely not “me.” I had gone to the thrift store to find some appropriate wear, but I hadn’t…

But’s or And’s?

  I love my body but I want to lose weight. I realized this right after accruing 150+ likes on Facebook in a recent bikini post. My entire life I told myself that the only way I would be happy with my body in a bikini is if I emerged from the water to a…

Treat Yo Self

In my experience there is one sure-fire way of manipulating children into doing what you want — bribery.  If you stop your tantrum in the craft store, I’ll give you fruit snacks. If you’re good at the doctor, I’ll buy you a soda. If you bring in enough canned goods, I’ll throw you a pizza party. Our…

Spot Treatment

It has been just over 3 months since I really decided to give this weight loss thing a shot and while I know I have lost some weight in that time, it remains generally hard for me to see. When I look in the mirror I find I look largely the same. They say when…

Say Empowerment Again

Last week I got into a text debate with a male friend about Kim Kardashian’s nude selfie. (That may be the silliest sentence I’ve ever written.) It started when I shared an article that a friend of mine posted on Facebook that criticized, or attacked, depending on your POV, Kim Kardashian and Emily Ratajkowski for…

How to Take a Photo Shoot

Well friends, it has been four months since our first photo shoot, and I bet some of you are wondering “How do they do it? How are they that beautiful?” Well, I thought I would clue you in on the magic — as I am not now an expert. The first thing to remember is it is…

The Long Way

Most people are fond of a good short cut. I know I am. If I can get something done a little easier or a little faster or for a little cheaper I LOVE the shortcut. Sometimes you have to sacrifice something for the shortcut, but most of the time it is worth it. Maybe you…
