Read an Excerpt

Buckle up!

You are about to take a journey unlike any you’ve ever been on before—at least in this society, because by the time we reach our destination, a place called “Largely Positive,” you will no longer allow your size and weight to measure your self-worth. Heck, you may decide to throw your scale in the trash! We’ll be making a number of stops along the way, to talk about things like:

  • Why people come in all sizes (and it may have very little to do with how much you eat).
  • How to know if you’re really a binge eater (and why).
  • Why it doesn’t necessarily follow that “If I lost weight, anyone can.”
  • Why self-esteem does not stop at size 12.
  • How to get compliments and command respect in an ample body.
  • How to get your priorities in order and start living your life now.
  • And, O.K., how to better manage your weight once and for all.
  • What People are saying about this
