Happy New Year!

Please find us now at www.forwomenoverforty.com and on WESUfm – 88.1 fm Tuesdays at 2:30 p.m. EST (live stream rewind and on archives)

Dear Readers:

Nearly seven years after launching my art gallery show, NURTURE: Stories of New Midlife Mothers – www.MidlifeMothers.org (the first and only show dedicated to presenting women choosing motherhood over 40) and this wonderful, inspirational blogsite,  MotheringintheMiddle.com, which followed soon after, I have decided it is time to move on.

In addition to writing and speaking engagements, I am now the talk radio host of the weekly show, “For Women Over 40”www.forwomenoverforty.com. (88.1fm) broadcast at WESU and available through the Pacifica Network. This work has taken me even further than what was started so long ago.

During these years, NURTURE has visited 13 venues throughout North America to accolades and much press.  MotheringintheMiddle.com has garnered more than 150 writers  – midlife mothers and fathers from seven countries, and experts working with this genre – representing nearly 950 essays. We also published The Zen of Midlife Mothering– the first anthology by and for this group.

Passionately dedicated to the topic of women choosing motherhood over 40, I originally created these projects to show society who we were and help provide these women with a voice, face and forum.  However, the work became so much more: an opportunity to create our own community, a method for providing information, support, inspiration and guidance, and a place where midlife mothers (and then, fathers) could find that “aha” moment – that breath which followed the thought, “I am home,” and these are my peeps.

17 Tips About Food, Dieting, and Eating During This Holiday Season

Christmas cookiesChristmas and New Year’s Eve may be two of the most stressful holidays for women.

The Holiday Season, a time that is supposed to be about a celebrations, may be torturous to some who have eating or body image issues. Why is this so? Because women, still, have set-notions for the proper ways to behave during a holiday.

This can be summarized with two thought-patterns engrained from childhood and passed down for generations: Cook, but do not eat too much, and look good.

Looking your best is an expectation, especially during holiday parties, but the duality of preparing food and not eating it while overseeing that all goes well, plus the stress of hosting family or visiting relatives may send many (if not every woman in the planet), straight into compulsive-eating mode.

Babies and Bikinis: The Great Debate

Christy Stansell and Teenaged DaughterWhat’s the thing you dread the most when summer comes around?  The heat and humidity?  The jacked-up A/C bill?  The kids’ boredom complaints?  How about shopping for a swimsuit – for a teenager?!

The debate isn’t just an external argument about whether or not she (the teenager) can/should have a bikini, but also the internal conflict of:  Dang!  I used to have that slim, beautifully curvy, soft, delicate (sexy?!) body.  I’m her mother, for crying out loud!

Why am I admiring my 13 year old daughter’s physique with woeful envy?!  That’s ridiculous.  Or is it?  Weren’t I just wearing a bikini? Wasn’t she just a baby? [Read More…]
