I'm going to BlogHer '12

Not Goodbye

This post is a long time coming. I’m taking a break from The Token Fat Girl for awhile. I write this on the heels of attending BlogHer 12′ this weekend. This just feels right, right now.

It’s been a struggle for me to keep the blog up this past year, if not longer. To be [...]

Better Days

Once you realize that it’s possible to feel good by not eating certain things and including others instead, the compulsion begins to fall away because you’ve found something better: getting your life back.

This was the first thing I read this morning on my Facebook feed. By Geneen Roth of course. I had to [...]

Keep Calm

If I’ve learned anything about life, career and wellness, it’s that nothing good comes from panicking. Yet, I feel like I’m always relearning that lesson.

I went to a salesmanship conference a couple of years ago, where the speaker made it very clear that you can’t be creative if you’re [...]

Can I Have it All?

This week has zipped by! I say this on the heels of driving an hour away to stay with my parents and Josh in a cabin for the weekend. No internet and probably little phone reception. I’m bringing lots of books and notebooks and will be inspired, relax and swim.

It’s been a little over [...]

Feeling, Feelings

One of the hardest parts of intuitive eating is sitting with an emotion. The emotions vary from fear, worry, anxiety, anger, stress, and even startlingly, happiness and contentment. Asking myself, am I hungry? What am I hungry for? So many times in a day keeps me in the moment, in today, rather than starting over [...]

What’s Work Got To Do With It?

This illustration is funny to me because I feel like this on most days. I know I’m not alone, right? This is a topic I’ve touched on before, but I want to revisit it because it’s a big one for me.

I’ve spent years trying to figure out why I overeat and I’ve come [...]

Intuitive Eating Take Five

It’s been two and a half weeks since I showed the world a picture of me in a too-small dress. Determined to lose weight to fit into it, I started by counting calories, then following the skinny rules, and then a couple of days of eating two much, and then reading Intuitive Eating, which [...]

My Favorite (Filling) Breakfast

Earth shattering, right? These breakfast burritos only have about 250-300 calories and they keep me full for hours! Just a scrambled egg with a little cheese and vegetables on a whole wheat wrap. So good! I found these wraps at the Fresh Market awhile ago and have been avoiding them because whole wheat wraps [...]

Weekend Favorites

This minty tea cooler from Creature Comforts. Good thing we’ve got lots of mint growing up around the house!

This Nars Beach Lover set. I’ve been feeling the call of the ocean lately. This could help ease the pain of the ocean being five hours [...]


Today is our third anniversary, which means lots of extra hugs and Indian food. I’m not overly comfortable sharing my feelings about my husband on the internet of all places, but what I will say is that he is the best husband and partner for me. There are never days that go by that [...]
