I’ve felt unsettled all day about having published the post about Crystal Renn’s weight loss. I was hesitant about posting it in the first place and I think I should have listened to my gut. The problem is this: the way to get myself to stop obsessing over things like other women’s weight loss is probably not to dwell on them further by writing about them. I didn’t realize that when I wrote the post – it’s all a learning experience, right? – but now I don’t feel good about it. I’m not pulling the post down because I didn’t want people to wonder where their comments went and there is some really great discussion going on in the comments (as always, you guys are brilliant and insightful and caring and all-around wonderful). But I did want to offer my apologies here. And I promise tomorrow’s post (that goes live tonight – don’t ask me why I do that because I have no idea) has nothing to do with weight or body image!
Thanks for your continued patience with me!
