Health at Every Size Pledge and Registry

Linda Bacon has created a HAES Pledge, Registry, and Resource List here:
http://www.lindabacon.org/HAESCommunity/

You can sign the pledge and join the registry (primarily for professionals but categories such as "activist" and "writer" are also options).

You can also find resources such as organizations, websites/blogs, and books/media. If you join, you can add resources.

Linda has also written a book called Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight. I haven't read very far in the book yet, and so far it looks like stuff that most fat activists already know, but it might be helpful to people who are on the fence about changing their health focus away from "losing weight."

I'm looking forward to hearing what you think of the book. I put some notes about it here.

Not exactly related to this, but wish me luck - I see the nutritionist tomorrow.

Good luck. Will you be bringing HAES stuff for the nutritionist to look at?

I should. At the very least, I should track down Hanne Blank's letter to the physician. But I don't have anything handy right now (excuses, excuses).
