The Confidence Bible

By Guest Blogger Jane Durst Pulkys Stop for a second and ask yourself, how are you feeling? If you were to finish the following statement, what would you say? “I am ____.” What word did you use?

Top 11 Superfoods for Glowing Skin

The plane has landed. I guess I deserve it. I did, after all, write a blog post called ‘Born Skinny.’ My metabolism, the metabolism that had been overly kind to me for 37 years, officially retired 2 years ago. I think due to overwork.

The Instant Gratification Generation

By Guest Blogger Carol Cain My teen has been working at adjusting his mindset to what he sees around him and his reality.

Motivation Monday: SPANX & My Confession

Happy Monday! Today, I wanted to publish a Motivation Monday, because that's just what I was after watching MAKERS' latest video on Sara Blakely.

The 5 Stages of Grief

Happy Monday, girls! We're back in the groove today. The kids finally went back to school after last week's Jewish holidays, and I went back to the gym (five pounds heavier due to endless chopped liver, brisket and gefilte fish). You might recall one of my favorite guest bloggers on this site, Janet Tarasofsky. Her post titled 525,600 Minutes to Single…
