A little bit of this, A little bit of that

Vote for Rachel’s food blogging session. (There will be cupcakes!)

My fellow Seal Press author and cupcake blogger, Rachel Kramer Bussel, has proposed a food blogging panel for the annual SWSX festival next year entitled, “Nom Nom Nom: The Secrets of Successful Foodblogging.” Go vote for her. If she gets in and you attend, you will get a free cupcake.

Bitch about sportswear and get a free bra

MizFit is hosting a contest where everyone who leaves a comment about what bugs them about athletic apparel will get a free sports bra. (Looks like the bra is for A/B size runners, so busty women be warned.) Be sure to read the post, because you have to email the sponsor after leaving a comment. Only runs until midnight tonight!

ETA: MizFit commented below that “It’s HIGH IMPACT for A/B and low impact for larger cup women. My sister is a C almost D and likes hers (ok, she steals mine :)) but she uses it for lifting weights/elliptical machine.”

Welcome back Internet Explorer 6 users!

All of you who use Internet Explorer 6 are probably happy that you can see the site again. Yesterday I embedded a video of a Coco the Colossal Colon in my state fair entry which IE6 could not digest. I’ve removed the video, so everything should be fine. But let me just say, screw you, Maven player! You suck. Don’t be crashing my blog.

Thanks PQ!

I asked the owner of the company, Oiselle, about the bra and she said it’s HIGH IMPACT for A/B and low impact for larger cup women.

My sister is a C almostD and likes hers (ok, she steals mine :)) but she uses it for lifting weights/elliptical machine.

but yep. they’re free until theyre gone.

I love Oiselle running and wanna support women owned businesses.

People still use IE? lol

I think I should probably accept the fact there will never be a bra contest/feature/etc. that applies to me (40JJ), hmm? :-(

Hi PQ,

I don’t usually enter “giveaways,” but this bra one was too tempting. I have been in search of a good bra since losing all the weight. None fit well and it is particularly hard to find one to exercise in.

It has inspired me to go bra shopping while I am on vacation next week. The time has come to get serious. I find clothes that fit better, so I should have a “foundation” to keep things looking “contained,” if not perky.

Hmm… what else can I accomplish while on vacation?!

I wondered what the deal was that I couldnt get your page. I just read you in my google reader instead!

I just stumbled onto your blog I read some of what you wrote, it truly impresses me to think you lost that kind of weight. Im sitting here sort of felling sorry for myself thinking man I need to loose a lot of weight not as much as you did but a lot more then 20 pounds, just wanted you to know I appreciate your blog, and God willing and he is I can loose the weight also.

I’ve been out of town for a few days and have been trying for at least two days to get caught up Jennette. I’m so relieved that it was an IE problem and not something I said :-)

I was thinking of you on my recent trip to the Bay Area. We hit all our favorite restaurants in Berkeley, San Francisco, and the Napa Valley. I had three rich, heavy, starchy, high-fat meals every day, for four days in a row. I was sure that I gained ten lbs., and was terrified to step on the scale when I got back. So I drowned my fears in another day of overeating, here at home. When I finally got up the courage to step on the scale after five days of overindulgence, I found I had gained a measly three pounds. (Three pounds is nothing. My weight can fluctuate more than that over the course of a day.)

On the other hand, my weight has stayed within the same five pound range since the beginning of May. For ALMOST FOUR MONTHS, no matter what I do (undereating, overexercising, Atkins, veganism, overeating, avoiding exercise — it makes no difference) my weight has stayed essentially the same.

It’s like I’m cursed. So — what does one do? What does one do to get past a realio, trulio, genuine plateau? I am well over my goal weight and not willing to give up. Should I just focus on healthy living and avoid the scale? What do you do, PQ?

I’m so glad I use Firefox and got to see Coco the Colon! LOL

Am generally a lurker, but wanted to chime in and welcome you back. Heavens, I thought your blog was gone for good! So glad it is not.


Doc • August 14, 2008 at 7:19 pm

I’m in Muncie and have to say I say away from the fair just for that. Deep fried everything. The colon thing is a great educational tool though. :-) I know way too much about colons. The early birds seem to have gotten the bras but I love the blog and the book.
