I am more than my body

Things have been going well.  Quite well, in fact.  I’ve been doing interviews for my book and having a FABULOUS time!  I’ve been getting tons of valuable support from my colleagues.  I’ve been feeling really good about the work that I’m doing.  I’ve been reading a lot and making lots of plans.

Thin and beautiful

I’ve been going through old photos over the last couple of weeks and I’ve found some interesting surprises and wonderful memories.  The one that I just can’t get out of my head is this one:

The right words at the right time

Transforming Your Body Image by Leah Carey

This has been a horrific week for the people of the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont. The murder of Melissa Jenkins, which made national headlines earlier this week, is the kind of thing that seems unthinkable until it happens.  And for the first time, I was part of the media covering the story.

Because my editors …

The 10-pound challenge

Over at Newlyweds On A Budget, Erika has introduced the 10 Pound Challenge, which involves losing 10 pounds in 12 weeks.  When I first read that I thought…I’m in up to my eyeballs!  I’m running as fast as I can just to fall behind lately!  I can’t possibly add another thing to my plate!

Then …

The Miracle Challenge – day #4

Good morning everyone!

This morning I thought I’d do a run-down of our participants thus far.

We have 19 people who have made declarations!  And I’ve gotten emails from a couple more people who will be joining us, which puts us well over the 20 mark.  Just think – 20 people for 30 days – …

For a couple of years I’ve been trying to come up with a legitimate pitch to send to my university’s alumni magazine.  For some reason it has always felt particularly appealing to be published in the magazine that represents the place where I came of age, both personally and professionally.

Miracles from the Women’s Health Conference

Today I spoke at the 20th annual North Country Women’s Health Conference at the beautiful Mt. Washington Hotel.  I had an opportunity to meet some really interesting people and hear some other speakers, too.  Here are a couple of my favorite things from the day:

The miracle of God’s serenade

Wouldn’t it be nice to think that once we deal with an issue it’s done…kaput…never to be seen again?  Yes, that would be nice.  Unfortunately it’s not very realistic. At some point, we find ourselves dealing with the same issue again and think – wait, didn’t I handle this?  But we’re just at a deeper …
