    emily hit so many issues on the head!! i identify so much with her and the concept of always wanting to be “tinier”- not necessarily thinking you’re fat, just wanting to be littler. way to go emily– you are so brave for putting that out there

    I’m super-sensitive about my belly, too. But I think you’re beautiful, Emily, and loved watching this. You rock!

    Emily, I loved this video. Cereal is so addicting. I specifically related to when you talked about getting older and your body not bouncing back as quickly. It’s depressing. And I don’t know what to do about it.

    Emily, you are adorable, and I totally feel you on emotional eating…and not just the bad emotions, the good ones too! I don’t really know how to celebrate otherwise! I mean, there’s alcohol, and just a party, but alcohol is kinda lame and parties…without food?!

    Hooray for curves! Embrace them. You’re beautiful and feminine. :-)

    Hey love. I can relate with the “getting old” fear and feeling of not bouncing back as quickly. At a dinner for someone’s birthday a few weeks ago, I was introduced as “and that’s Anna, she’s the oldest at the table.” Starting to feel it. You are wonderful, my beautiful sister in California. Let’s “grow old” together. haha.

    [...] Emily: I have been thinking today about self-confidence. As a person who can swing back and forth from thinking that I am one of the most awesome people alive, to wondering whether anyone actually likes me, I am curious about the nature of this phenomenon. Lately I have been in a down swing. A string of rejections, stresses and bad decisions has left me wondering when I became someone who felt this uncertain about myself. When I interact with new people I feel unable to gauge their reactions to me. This leads me to seek social approval so that I can once again feel assured in my general worth as a person. [...]
