Overview

More and more, the scientific evidence is proving that diets don't work, that one's "natural" body weight may be genetically predetermined, and that the words "healthy" and "thin" are not necessarily synonymous. In the face of such evidence, Carol Johnson's upbeat and realistic approach to loving oneself at any weight is an indispensable and timely guide for millions of Americans. Self-Esteem Comes in All Sizes is written from Ms. Johnson's hard-won and firm conviction that, like flowers, people "come in all colors, shapes, and sizes - but they're all beautiful." It is an inspirational guide for all those women (and men) who have been putting their happiness on hold, convinced that if only they were thin, everything else in their lives would be better. Carol Johnson's answer to this self-defeating attitude is that "you can feel good now, look good now, be the most you can be - right now!" By separating physiological fact from popular fiction, she helps people to understand that they are not to blame for their size; by focusing on health rather than weight loss, she explains how to set achievable goals.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
According to Johnson, it's okay to think big. The buxom therapist and founder of Largely Positive, a support group for overweight women and men, offers inspiration to anyone whose dieting has failed yet again. Need we add that the publicist expects this book to be big?
