Happy New Year!!
Quick apology to Marshalls. Never send your husband shopping for anything. Marshalls does in fact have a Big and Tall section for men with sizes up to 5x. I knew this, because this week I tried Marshalls for that mythical pair of sweats. (Successful but not a good selection to choose from). I saw Big and Tall and realized my husband, being a guy, missed the section entirely. I had to explained to him when looking for fat clothes it will always been segregated. (As you know stores have clothes separated for Men, women, kids, juniors and fat). While I like Marshalls solely because I've actually been successful buying clothes there, because they are a buy-out place, selection depends on the shipment.
Next week I'm hoping to finally get to Re/Dress a plus size vintage clothing store, which if you are in the NYC metro area should be visiting.
It's a new year and I hope that means we are not joining Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig or a gym. All programs that promote consuming calories less than your body needs is a diet, no ad campaign can tell me otherwise. If you want to join a gym because you like to exercise, go right ahead, but never do it for weight loss. I doubt you'll less longer than 6 months if you do. I, however, will save my money by continuing to walk and ride my bike on the generator when it is too cold out. I just find it incredibly wasteful to drive to a place to use a stairmaster.
Speaking of diets, here's the worst of 2008
