Dear Jenny, I was wondering if you had any suggestions on how to bounce back in the weight department. I have 2-year-old twin boys. When they were 4 months old, my husband and I separated. I restarted everything. I went back to school and am now starting a business and a new job. I’m still at the same weight I was after I had my kids — and then some. Turns out that divorce ice-cream-eating packs on pounds. I’m not interested in a relationship, but I don’t want to be fat anymore. I need to get myself back, but can’t get motivated. Any suggestions? What did you say to yourself to get your butt off the couch after a day of caring for your son and working? Help! — Anonymous
Holy crap. “The View” starts on Monday. People keep asking me if I’m nervous. I have to be honest — not yet. Usually my nerves are more excitement-based, but I have a feeling I will be running into the bathroom at least a few times an hour before we go live on Monday.

I know, winter is still months away. But when it comes to fashion, mannequins across the country are making their debut decked in the latest fashion trends for this winter. I scoped, prodded and asked some professionals what is trendy this winter, as to get a jump start on my shopping. I don’t consider myself to be trendy, but I do like a heads up so I don’t have to tune in to the Kardashians to find out if pashminas are still trendy.
