    What is your weight right now?

    Last doctor visit, I was at 310. My doctor believes that my stress levels are contributing to the recent weight gain/inability to lose.

    Meijer Department Stores To Eliminate Separate Plus Size Women's Clothing Department

    I actually looked at our local Meijer store. I HATE this. It used to be that I knew exactly where the stuff in my size was located. Now I have to dig through a rack containing 30 identical shirts to try to find one in my size. This has not been a very well-received change.

    Please explain gaining to me

    I don't get it either. I'm a BBW at 280, and I HATE being this size and I am incredibly unhealthy. Some people are lucky enough not to have those issues, I'm just not one of them. I hate my body, mainly because of the health issues involved with being this size.

    Do you double space?

    Double spacing is the proper way to do it, and I will always continue to do it. The same goes for refusing to end a sentence with a preposition, putting a comma after the last entry in a list (before the "and"), and using proper margins.

    FA needs help with wife

    HER body. If she wants to lose weight, that is her right. And what's more, she has EVERY right to have her body be the size that she wants it to be... and you have no say over it. I would say to you the very same thing I've said to men who whine "my wife has gained 50 lbs since we...

    Marriage Weight Gain

    Both DH and I have gained weight. He's put on about 50 lbs since December 2006 when we got together. I've put on about 30 lbs. He had washboard abs, now he looks about 7 months pregnant. I had lost some weight, but now I'm back up to about 280. BOTH of us need to lose some for...

    Question For The Big Ladies Here, About Top Styles..

    I don't like empire waists because they look like maternity shirts. Yuck. I will NOT wear any sort of top without a bra. Ever. I do love my tank tops with the built-in foam bra cups. Makes it easier. My favorite tops tend to be the peasant style tops with flowing sleeves, and a lace-up...

    Menus and meal planning

    I tend to plan menus a week or two in advance, but not in any set order. Just "I'm gonna make these 10 meals" and will choose at the time which day to do it. I will choose the meal menus based on what is already in the house, and what is going to be on sale, and then I shop accordingly. We...

    I absolutely LOVE this place... but a lot of the stuff isn't in large enough sizes. But some is!

    Go to a Lane Bryant store and get MEASURED. You're probably wearing the wrong size - most women are. Also... I wear an F cup, and LB does carry them. But manufacturers and styles are different, and you may wear a different size for each. The sales clerk at LB would know the differences AND...

    Virgin Roll Call

    It is far from a wives' tale, it's a medical fact. However, the thickness of the hymen is the most important factor in that regard.

    oy, it's letters to people and things, part deuce!

    Dear DH I love you. But that doesn't mean that I will automatically turn a blind eye to your daughter's stupid antics. She's 23 and the mom of a 6 month old. She needs to get off her ass, go BACK to school (but pick one, since she's dropped out after one semester in more than one program!!)...
