Overview

"Having read many books on eating disorders, I am always inspired by ones that are written from a personal perspective. Learning To Be Me is so honest and bravely written. It offers readers immense hope, and I am already recommending it to some of my clients."

-Andrea Wachter, coauthor of The Don't Diet, Live-It! Workbook

Many women in the United States who suffer from eating disorders die from the diseases annually. Learning To Be Me: My Twenty-Three-Year Battle with Bulimia is one woman's courageous battle to not become a statistic.

From violent self-abuse to feelings of despair as her cries for help went unanswered, author Jocelyn Golden's Learning To Be Me chronicles her battle and ultimate victory over one of the most silent, misunderstood, and deadly eating disorders in America. With candor and wit, Golden recounts the miserable realities of living with bulimia for more than two decades and paints a vivid self-portrait of a woman obsessed with being thin.

An inspirational memoir about the search for strength, motivation, and support, Learning To Be Me illustrates the importance of self-love on the journey to healing.

    A reviewer

    I have read a few books that deal with eating disorders but this one stood out for how far the author takes you inside the mind of a bulimic. It is raw and sometimes shocking but the fact that the author came out the other side is inspiring. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to understand what bulimia is like for a sufferer and to brace yourself for an intense journey.

    A Timely Lesson

    With all the publicity around celebs with eating disorders, this book is a timely lesson about how early an ED can start and how bad it can really get. Ms Golden's book is beautifully written and is easy to read, in fact it is truly hard to put down. It opened my eyes to the reality of what it must be like to suffer from an ED and needs to be read by anyone who wants to understand a sufferer or about EDs in general. I commend the author for her honesty and for wanting to help others.

    Honest and Inspiring

    I thought I understood what an eating disorder was like or what it was about until I read this. What this author has experienced is truly shocking and really opened my eyes to the reality of an eating disorder. I feel so much more knowledgable and inspired after reading this and would recommend it to anyone. Her recovery story really touched me deeply, there is something about her writing that really makes you feel you are there with her on her journey. This book will help anyone understand bulimia better. I really admire this author's honesty.

    Inspiring book.

    Jocelyn Golden is a very honest,very insightful writter. I enjoyed this book and was inspired by her recovery. Anyone considering recovery from an eating disorder should buy this book. I think that friends or family of someone with an eating dosorder would benefit from the insight given by 'Learning to Be Me'.
