Loving your body is hard to do.

Project Body Love is the story of my quest to find acceptance, respect, and maybe even love for my body after spending a lifetime counting calories and drops of sweat. What followed was a two-year series of experiments that had me mining the depths of my past, dismantling the effects of Diet Culture on my self-worth, taking up bellydancing, posing for nude photographs, and other daring feats of self-exploration.

Far from being a shiny tale of self-actualization, Project Body Love explores the complexity of being a fat person in a thin-obsessed world, and concludes with an entirely new perspective on the elusive body love – one that was surprising, even to me.

This is my story, and so much of it is also the story of millions of other women.

And so.

I wrote this for every woman who has spent too much time trying to make herself small.

I wrote it for every woman who wants to love her body, but can’t figure out how.

I wrote this for a world that needs its women committed to revolution and sovereignty and joy, not eating more salad.
