@j-i-a no. The piece used the term "a healthy weight".
There is no weight that is inherently healthy. It really reveals that the person who wrote this has a limited understanding of weight, health, bodies, science, food, and anything they are claiming to know about.

@j-i-a it is still moderated. come on, "someone submitted it!" is not a good reason.
If I asked a problematic question it would be Hairpin's job to not respond, or to respond and correct me.
Like "Dear Hairpin, how do I disown my gay son?"
Hairpin, "Well, I guess we gotta tell her hot to do it! We can't tell her that her thinking is flawed, and we can't just ignore it like all these other questions we didn't answer..."

@Kira-Lynn@twitter I agree! There are really PLENTY of other places to find weight loss tips. Listening to weight loss strategies makes me feel like I ought to be following them. With this post, we now have one fewer place on the internet that we can go to and avoid weight loss talk!

The feeling at the end of a long day of life being just not quite what you somehow dreamed it would be when you were younger, but then you come home to the most true article, followed by that one comments section on the internet where everyone is perfectly lovely and completely supportive and nobody picks fights or brings up Hitler, and everyone is witty and warm like that one best friend you used to have but somehow don't have anymore because of no reason in particular except that sometimes in life your friends just drift away, but now you feel like maybe you could find another one, because look at all these wonderful ladies who think like you and maybe instead of spending all your time being melancholy and nostalgic for your early twenties, your life now will turn into something equally amazing and meaningful, but somehow totally different because, let's face it, you will never be quite as stupid ever again as you were in your early twenties.
How to eat it: A celebratory glass of wine, because you are a classy grown-up now, and one farewell clove cigarette before giving up both smoking and dwelling on the past. Also probably some Ben & Jerry's.

FEELING: Looking at Father's Day cards for your husband, who is the amazing and wonderful Daddy to your children and deserves the best card ever, and suddenly your heart collapses and so do your knees and you are loudly choking back tears in the Target card section because THAT CARD is the one you would get your for own dad, were he still alive. And all those immediate grief feelings are flooding your brain and heart and all over the fucking place until you look up, and relief overcomes you that no one else saw your total emotional meltdown at the Father's Day card section in Target.

EATS: That box of Thin Mints you've hidden from yourself in the back of the freezer? All of them. And drink them with a big glass of milk, because that was your dad's favorite treat.

FEELING: That empty/not empty question mark when all your friends are pregnant or engaged even though those aren't things you want for yourself

HOW TO EAT IT: Solo dinner out somewhere way fancier than you normally go + all the pretentious cocktails

FEELING: The one where a Hairpin post succinctly and gorgeously dissects out those feelings that you stuck way down deep at the bottom of your heart and piled to-do lists and old clipped recipes over so you wouldn't have to look closely enough at them to give them names.

HOW TO EAT IT: Swallow more Hairpin like this whole, all the time, please.

Hairpin is absolutely killing it this week.

"...for hours or days there's a rustling in your rib cage as the complex structure destroys itself, unfolding and flattening, unfolding and flattening pleat by pleat."

Oh God. So painful and so perfect and so good. (And yes, that can only be fixed with all of the bread. Or possibly high-quality mac and cheese.)
