    I am looking to get more active, the only trouble is I'm not too sure how to start. I don't have access to a gym, and right now I can't do anything that causes my blood pressure to go up due to some neurological stuff. Any help would be very much appreciated.

    I’m wearing PANTS in this outfit post! It’s a miracle! I seriously do not wear many pants – give me skirts and dresses all day, every day. This outfit showed up on my doorstep and I loved the jacket and top, but when I saw pants, I thought “oy vey.” Thanks Lane Bryant for making me eat my words. The pants worked and I love this look. It is professional, yet contemporary and not stuffy, and the pieces are all individually versatile.

    Hi, fats! I have two events in the new year that will require wearing pyjamas in public, so I'm starting my search now. I wear 26/28, and am in Canada, though I travel to the US fairly often. I'm looking for something in the flannel pj/onesie kind of area, rather than sexy nightgown/lingerie. Any ideas? Bonus points for geek themes.
  • looking for plus sized raingear

    gosling
    4 Oct 2014 | 2:54 pm
    One of the expectations of my new job turns out to be that I am regularly outside for quite some time in torrential rain. Any recommendations on where to get truly waterproof raingear in plus sizes? I am in need of both rainpants and a (hopefully somewhat longish) rain jacket. (Probably a 22 or so in pants. At least 24 to 26 in the jacket, or maybe a bit bigger so I can layer under it in super cold weather.) Ideally the pants at least would be available in lengths for super short people, as I am under 5' tall and suspect it is not actually possible to effectively hem waterproof garments. I…

She's researching purging disorder and looking for support for her project.The Diverse Presentations of Eating DisordersK. Jean Forney, M.S.Typically, when people hear “eating disorder,” they think of anorexia nervosa, the eating disorder characterized by low weight.

  • The Innateness of Movement

    24 Sep 2014 | 7:31 am
    I've been spending a lot of time with kids and babies these days, and one thing I've noticed is that little people love to move. Babies and toddlers like to wiggle and jump. Grade-school kids love to tumble and climb. They dance and scoot and swim and ride bikes. Left unattended, kids will naturally choose movement over stagnation on many occasions throughout the day. In fact, they'll voluntarily run down the sidewalk if you let them. But most adults won't.Many adults don't like to move. We view exercise (even the word sounds challenging) as a chore. We set up contingencies around movement…

    In May, The New York Times posted an article about a research study that found that it's possible to lose 11 pounds in four days. I'm disappointed in The Times for featuring this study, and if you're a budding researcher or at all interested in debunking weight-loss myths, follow along with me as to why.First, the study consisted of 15 participants, an embarrassingly low sample size. Let's just say we can overlook that fact for a second. The article reports that the participants were "healthy but overweight Swedish men." Ask yourself: "Am I a healthy but overweight Swedish man?" If not,…

    Sometimes, the words and posts don’t come. This is basically all I’ve got right now. Dealing with a lot of lemons. A lot. Trying not to drown in them. I know people would normally say: “when life hands you lemons, make lemonade!” Well, sometimes you just can’t find the damn sugar. Base image from pixeljockeyth on Flickr I’m not the best at processing negative things in my life. In the past, I’ve employed what I call the “avoid it and stuff it” approach. Avoid any emotion. Avoid talking to anyone. Binge eat to stuff down any of the…
