I got an email this week from a reader, who was responding to a Facebook post I wrote about having dinner with Crazy Sexy Diet author Kris Carr at Café Gratitude in San Francisco, where she’s visiting on tour for her New York Times bestselling book.

"I’m so happy for you that you get to hang out with all these people I admire -- Kris Carr, Sheila Kelley, Debbie Rosas, Mama Gena -- but every time I read about you doing something with women I wish I could have as my friends, I get so jealous I can hardly stand it. And then I feel shitty about myself, but I feel like that makes me a bad person. I don’t want you to stop posting about what you do. I love you, and I want you to keep being ALL YOU, ALL THE TIME.
