Links: xoJane writers on relationships with food, unwilling weight loss

An avid reader of Sassy when I was a teenager, I was delighted a while back to learn that Jane Pratt now has a website for and largely by women, xoJane, discussing a variety of topics with an edge and different editorial voice than other woman-oriented article and link-accrual sites such as Jezebel or the Hairpin. xoJane regularly publishes excellent articles about body image, weight, and food. Here are two recent stories well worth the read:

Adventures in Topamax: I’m On a Weight Loss Drug, But Not Because I Want to Lose Weight, author Sara Eyre – this touches on feeling out of control with your health, as well as the emphasis people sometimes put on weight loss over health.

My Grandma Died from an Eating Disorder, author Claire Glass – discusses the legacy of relationships with food over several generations of women.
