Weightless is a powerful memoir. McBride shares many painful experiences in this book, but it is never a morose read. He manages to keep a zest for life and sense of humor at the forefront. For me, it made the book that much more impactful, because despite abuse and society’s penchant for looking down on the obese, he overcame it all with nothing more than the decision that he was going to change. Real change is hard, and he didn’t flinch from sharing that difficulty. I wanted to clap for him at multiple points in the book because he kept trying. I liked the way the book was divided into time frames in his life. He gave examples of his typical diet at each point. Another fascinating part was short essays written by people who knew him along the way. They talked about how they saw him, and sometimes it aligned with his memory, and other times not. It really added to the story! I look forward to reading more works by him in the future.
