Looking for women's plus-size cold weather exercise pants

I am looking for women's plus-sized (size 2X) cold-weather pants for walking my dog in the morning. I walk/run her for about 45 minutes (we are slowly doing Couch to 5K together). Specifically, I'd like to have something like these thermal running tights
that are light, easy to pull on in the morning straight out of bed and will wick away moisture. Regular exercise and/or running tights aren't warm enough. Typical temps I walk in are down to 20F -- I'd like to be warm, but just not cold
would be sufficient. I need them in a women's size 2X, but have had no luck finding anything.

I am in the US, in the Washington DC metro area. I would prefer to order off the internet, but can do phone/mail/local too.
If I can't find running tights like those, I need suggestions for what to wear for pants instead. I need to keep warm in cold (down to 20F degrees), windy conditions, where I'm walking vigorously, sometimes running, and sweating a lot. I need pants that wick away moisture. If it's raining, I still walk the dog, so something somewhat water resistant would be great (we don't go for a long walk when it snows, so that's not a concern). Sweatpants and jeans won't do the job here.
I found a great jacket for outdoor exercise from the advice in this previous thread
-- can you help me also find pants?
