    A working through your baggage book, not a helping me cope with getting thin book

    I enjoyed the author's writing style, and the book was a good story. But, the thing that bothered me, from a fat person's perspective, is that when the author was at her fatest, she wasn't fat. She obsessed about it, and it consumed her, but by most people's standard, she wasn't fat. At her nonpregnant heaviest, she was a size 10 and ran 3 times a week. Sure, she had to work through some emotional baggage, and I understand that, but the book should be touted as a "working through your baggage book", not a "helping me cope with getting thin book". But maybe that was my misconception.

    more from this reviewer

    Absolutely loved it!

    This book is inspiring, touching, and possibly life-changing. I just finished it five minutes ago and had to come on here and give it a review (which I rarely do). I would recommend this to ANYONE, young or old, male or female, any race, size, or class, who has ever had issues with body image. You won't be disappointed (and here I thought this would be another rah-rah fitness book that would leave me thinking "Yeah right, won't work for me."). It's amazing how much it made me realize that my body issues are completely emotional (not physical), and that there ARE ways to begin dealing with them and having a better self-image. I'm going to keep this one handy for many years to come, to give me a boost when I need it.
