Combatting Childhood Obesity

By Ely North, published on Dec 5, 2012

Dear Ely,

I got beef with childhood obesity – it’s ruining my life. My son is a bona fide fat-ass. He’s only ten years old and he already weighs almost 200 pounds. His boobs are bigger than mine! It’s gross.

I’ve tried to guide him into healthier habits, but when he doesn’t get what he wants he throws a fit and sits on me. Once he actually broke my rib. I’m scared of the fat little monster, so I constantly give in and continue to enable his... (more)

My three-decade battle to lose weight consisted of an unending series of false starts and bad endings. When I do the math, I can honestly say that from 1976-2006, I lost an average of 20 lbs. per year, but the problems occurred when I gained approx. 25 lbs. back, like clockwork every year. It’s called yo-yoing and it’s worse ... (more)

Preparing Our Bodies for Bikinis

By Aggie, published on May 14, 2007

As the summer weather started breaking through the morning fog in early April, I realized that summer was inevitably on its way and would soon be upon me. I let out a breathless sigh and slipped easily into daydreaming about all the wonderful activities the summer would bring: early mornings at the Sidewalk Cafe in Venice, picnicking on the white sands of Malibu, hitting my old stomping grounds in Manhattan Beach and walking the pier with a diet coke in one hand and an extra thick slice of Zeppy's pizza in the other--and then, of course, there's that sexy little two-piece bathing suit I bought... (more)
