Harriet Brown has been writing more about weight and health of late. The most recent, in Slate, is worth reading (though the comments are NOT supportive and can be easily skipped).
Harriet also tackled 4 lies at Psychology Today:

- Being fat takes years off your life
- Being fat makes you sick
- Diets make you thinner – and healthier
