When the dietician needs to watch her weight

I quite like this entry on the U.S. News & World Report blog eat + run today; in it a New York dietician (and mom) candidly discusses the pressure of those in her field to "remain a model of good health and fitness," admits that she's a few pounds over her ideal weight ("I may still squeeze into the same size-28 jeans as before [I had kids], but I sure don't look as good in them"), and describes the recent changes she's made to get in better shape. And, because it includes a term that is (sadly) so familiar to many of us moms, I especially love her headline.
