When you’re feeling fat —which is typically code word for an array of emotions — when you feel your recovery is tenuous, when you want to improve your body image, when you want to read...


Minding the Magazines: Is Marie Claire Making Progress?

Is Your Body the Enemy?

I used to view my body as the enemy. It made me overeat. It wasn’t thin enough. It wasn’t muscular. It didn’t have a fast metabolism. It wouldn’t submit to my insults or demands. It had flaws.

So I’d get angry, irritated and frustrated with...
