'The Biggest Loser' misses the mark
Something just ain't right about "The Biggest Loser". The show ALWAYS makes me bawl my eyes out. Every time. Never fails. I cry when they air the first show of the season, when people we can all identify with stand on the scale and say they want to lose weight for their kids...

Don't go clowning around, that 5K run looks serious
They make kids laugh. They're always at birthday parties. Sure, clowns are a staple of family fun, but I gotta tell ya, they scare the bleep out of me. My friends laugh at what they consider an irrational -- it's not irrational, OK? -- fixation. Clowns are freaky. My boyfriend...

Weight's a lousy indicator of just how healthy you are
I'm finally starting to really get the message: Weight is not an indicator of how healthy a person is. It all became clear last weekend as I bumped, set and spiked -- well, not really, I'm just over 5 feet tall -- my heart out in a friendly volleyball game. My competition and...

Whenever beer is involved, stumbling becomes easy
Maybe it's because of my family background or my German heritage, but nothing goes along better with my golden tan than a chilled beer. Grilling on the deck: Corona. Outdoor baseball: Whatever beer, as long as it's cold. Tubing down the river: I'll take a Budweiser. A...

Who would have thought I'd be bummed about 6 pounds
I've never been punched in the face or beat up -- until Monday. No, the scale did not grow arms and cold cock me in the eye. My trainer didn't throw me to the ground and start kicking. But after losing six pounds and nine inches since my last weigh-in six weeks ago, I feel like...

Don't ask me ...I'm just a reporter
Wanted: A mathematician to write my life's story. Huh? Nobody in their right mind would ask someone great with numbers to be responsible for writing a biography. So why do we insist on getting weight-loss advice from anyone but a personal trainer? Overweight people turn...

It's a wonder -- eat what you want and lose weight
Culver's double butterburger and fries: check. Girl's night out, booze included: check. Late-night snacks, just a few: check. A few missed workouts: check. Fifteen more pounds and 9.5 more inches lost since Feb. 11: check. To be honest, I was shocked Monday after my...

Loving myself makes letting go of nasty old friend easier
Fat and me, we go way back. Oh, fat. You silly little thing. Remember in college when we didn't try out for the softball team? It was so much easier sitting in the dorm room with you guzzling down beer and using you as an excuse than it was trying out for the team. We could...

Some signs that your weight may be getting out of control
I should have been smart enough to recognize it was a sign. Instead, I convinced myself that cutting my clothes to make them fit was OK. People make alterations to their clothes all the time. I was just saving myself some money. Who needs a seamstress when a pair of meat-cutting...

Living in a bubble is the answer -- until it bursts
Can I live in a bubble? A bubble that blocks out jealousy and temptation would be nice. Cravings wouldn't exist in this round, protective world. Neither would shame and guilt. In my bubble, fat and skinny don't exist. You can wear a size 10 and be healthy. Skinny isn't...

Learning to love broccoli after a fling with noodles
Dear noodles, I love you. My crush started innocently enough in junior high. I stared at you boiling in a pot on the stove and all I could imagine was grabbing as much of you as I could. You were so tasty that I couldn't help but gobble you up. Now I'm obsessed with...

Deep-fried cauliflower? It's a killer temptation
Eating healthy is boring. Gone are the days when I go out to fast food restaurants and spin the exciting wheel of deep-fried side dishes. Now the choice is pretty much made for me: salad, salad, or ... more salad. I'm all for a good spread of greens and veggies. At some...
