I love celebrating the variety of shapes and sizes at these conferences, glorious proof that there is no one "right" body type. See for yourself!
Kimberly C. Ellis, aka Dr. Goddess; how could I not put her first?!

Lovelies Lorraine Sanabria Robertson from Ask Wifey
and Tanya Seavers Evans from Style Strategist
The charming Maura Hernandez from Cafe Magazine

And my adventures-in-sushi-and-gelato pals Deirdre from Savvypreneur and Toni from Wine With Toni, super-fun ladies who fly.
OK, so I'm considering getting into Just Dance, which I tried at the Clever Girls Collective party on Saturday night. It's so entertaining, you never even notice you're exercising. Which is exactly what I need until someone invents a machine that exercises you while you sleep. Could one of you please get going on that?
What kind of exercise have you been doing lately? *
* It's OK to say "Er, nothing."
* That is my answer. Unless you count my mad dash for the train home today and the 10 minutes I spent doing Just Dance last Saturday night. I am quite sure it effectively wiped out the chocolate-dipped churros I'd consumed for lunch.
* I know I need to exercise more, Mom.
* Churros are really, really, really good.
