Well, the answers are in the stories of these women who have struggled with the agony of a shameful addiction.
This book is so totally anti-diet. Anti-depriving yourself. It's about being good to yourself, maybe for the first time ever.
It's about figuring out WHY, so you can then work toward healing.
The author was not whining. She was simply telling her story, her truth. She tells her story about food, weight, shame, dieting, and the torment of being teased by other kids, in a touching, yet humorous manner.
Maybe you have not suffered the pain of addiction, possibly? I don't know.
I am in a position to give some advice because I identified with many of the women in this book. I suffered for years with food problems and I am finally free. My heart aches for people who are still struggling. This book has helped me in my battle to start being good to myself.
Do yourself a favor, forget about dieting. Eat what you want when you are truly hungry for food. Don't listen to people who tell you you are too fat. Make exercise fun. Enjoy your food, enjoy moving your body. Enjoy life.
Be good to you.
There's you answer.
