I've moved to JenFul.com

Does this mean I’m Glamorous?

I’m not sure if it’s on news stands yet, but I was interviewed as part of an article about emotional eating for the January 2008 issue of Glamour magazine. It’s the one with Carrie Underwood on the cover. Read my pithy quotes about cupcakes here. They mention the blog and I even thanked you all for being so helpful and supportive. So thanks again for all that help and support!

ETA: I saw the issue as I was checking out at the grocery today and threw it on the conveyor belt. Here’s a scan of the article in print.

Congratulations on the quote, and on everything in general. I have to say though,Glamour, as a magazine, totally sucks. I clicked through to read your article, and after I was done I browsed the site — if you click on their do’s & don’ts section, it’s mostly photos of unfortunately-dressed fat people with reams of evil comments posted below. Glamour is everything that’s wrong with our our culture as it relates to women, condensed into a monthly folio (with ads).

Thanks for being so honest in your blog though. It’s great for us readers and strivers.

Wow, that’s really cool and glad you are getting so much positive attention. You don’t really get how many people YOU inspire, do you? :)

You are indeed glamorous but, more importantly, clever and funny and wise.

You are cute. You have been very successful with your weight loss. Hopefully you will make lots of money from your book sales and keep the weight off, too. But aren’t you kinda tired of talking about it? You do have a life outside of being thin, don’t you? It I do get on the bandwagon and get thin, will it consume my whole life? Will I have to told I am thin and cute every day to be happy? Just wondering.

PQ – I can’t tell what tone you typed this in – genuinely-curious-reader or passive-aggressive-asshole, but I will assume you are being genuine since I’ve chosen to live a happier reality. But, yes, of course I have a life outside of weight loss! I just don’t talk about it on my weight-loss blog, just like I don’t talk about religion at work or about my sex life with my dentist. This is a topic blog and I stay on topic. Weight-loss isn’t that big of a part of my life anymore, but it’s important for people to know that someone lost a lot of weight and is keeping it off. I truly love writing too, so I keep on typing.

Will I have to told I am thin and cute every day to be happy? I don’t know, dude, do you?

Sometimes your comments are as much fun to read as your blog. Can’t wait for your book!

PQ – What’s really funny is that today at lunch my coworkers and I had a really long discussion about, wait for it, religion! I might want to postpone my next dentist’s appointment :)
