Fall, 2011

Check out this magnet I found in the UCLA bookstore:


At first, I loved it, but then, as I walked away, I began to think: "No, wait, Barbie should be happy being Barbie!"

We psychologists over-think everything.

Have I mentioned I moved to Los Angeles?  That's what I did during my summer vacation.  How about you?

As I return to blogging this fall, I'm interested in what you'd like to see me write about.  Any requests for topics?

There's a lot brewing in the Does Every Women Have an Eating Disorder? world. . . .  I already have talks lined up for September and March, and now, being in Los Angeles, where eating disorder treatment centers seem to be everywhere, I have a number of meetings scheduled with other professionals.  I've hung my shingle in Southern California and am seeing new patients here.  I continue to scour the internet, magazines, and television ads for cultural illustrations of my premise.  Just the other day, I saw a commercial (I believe it was for Home Goods), in which a woman returns from her lunch break, bragging to her colleague that her meal was both affordable and calorie-free.  As it turns out, she visited a Home Goods store and made a home purchase there, skipping lunch entirely.

Please help me in fighting this fight. . . .

i kept mis-reading and getting "Barbie wants me to be me". that seemed like a lovely sentiment.

i always appreciate what you write about. and it is so weird -- why do we think it's fab to skip meals? why is thinner "better"? grrrr

so nice to see you posting again! wish i were in Southern California. much success to you out there!

I saw that commercial too and had the exact same reaction! Needless to say, I probably wont spend my lunch money on a big vase...

Ooops...obviously meant "exciting." ;)

RF--who needs the clutter, anyway? ; ;)

MB--thanks! It was v. exiting (of NY) and exciting at the same time.
