We’ve All Been There: Sweat Pant Weight Gain

Somehow you ended up with four 9am classes this semester. WTF? You can barely get up for your kickboxing class at noon on Fridays, and someone expects you to make it to class (ready to learn!?) by 8:50am the rest of the week?

The Jessica Simpson Epidemic

After years of slipping through the media cracks, Jessica Simpson is more famous now than ever. And why? The girl <gasp!> gained weight. I mean, think about it: what has J.

I Remember: My Journey through Fatness, Skinniness, and Healthiness

Ladies, in honor of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, it's time to ask ourselves, "Do I?" and "Am I?" It's about looking at our own lives, and figuring out what's healthy and what's not.

Down With Coed Bathrooms!

There’s an unspoken rule that makes it allowable for you see your best friend's (or guy friend’s) bare ass in certain situations: a dare, a (drunken) hookup, a music festival, or on amateur night at a strip bar.

The Weekly Ten: Why You’re Fat

This week I've been inspired by ThisIsWhyYou'reFat.com... or my own personal struggle with winter weight. Between the Christmas cookies, Starbucks peppermint mochas and, oh yeah, lifting my drinking ban, these have all caused me to pack on the weight over the past three months.
