@Gilgongo The only time I really remember standing up to a teacher was when my high-school Social Studies teacher told us (out of context) that Catholics were cannibals because they consumed the body and blood of Christ. I contradicted him but he wouldn't back down. My parents were not happy about it, but I don't think there was any kind of resolution.

I am an east coast transplant in the Bay Area and the difference in attitudes is HUGE. Obviously, body image and eating disorders are way more complicated than geography, and I was already working towards recovering when I left New York, but the external cues out here were such a huge, positive change. I look back and wonder how I could possibly have hated myself so much and then I get sad because other than (and winter) that I really did love New York.

Everyone leave the East Coast please! Bring your sexy selves to the West, but leave the juicebox guys back in Brooklyn.

@Gilgongo Isn't that how babies work? "You think you've got this shit under control? WATCH THIS, SUCKAS."

(I am so glad your daughter is okay!)
