Book Description

***Big Is Beautiful***


As the wise Eric Cartman once said, "I'm not fat, I'm big-boned.
"

Why is it the case that a 2D cartoon character is so self assured while the rest of us obsess about being thin? In this book, you'll learn:


How To Conquer Your Negative Mind


Why do we mind what other people say about us plus-sized individuals? Are you ready for a few hard truths about yourself? Learn why we have to conquer our negative minds if we want to keep our kudos as well as our sanity.


Why Popular Media Has Changed The Way You Perceive Your Body


Find out how perception of the human body has evolved throughout the ages. Learn why it's silly to be influenced by the countless weight loss gimmicks, diets and programs. The idea is to be healthy, not 'thin' - and they are definitely not the same thing.


How Your Body Is Connected To Your Soul


No one has any time nowadays. We lead busy lives, and we ignore the Higher Power within us all. Our bodies are connected to our souls, and when we don't take care of our souls, our bodies falter as well. Find your Higher Power, and you'll stop questioning yourself and your self-worth.



Editorial Reviews

From the Author

For a number of years, I was happy with who I was, despite being 'obese'. When I looked into the mirror, I found my lumps and bumps touchable, my thick thighs sexy, and the round of my tummy cute as a button...and then it got out of control. 

After I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, my body reacted drastically, and it was not good. I ballooned up to 315 pounds, and I was depressed for a while before I realized how silly it was to be unhappy about my weight. 

I'm still me - the beautiful, eccentric, wild and free me. Everyone should love themselves as they are first and foremost. Now, I'm having the time of my life, and I've never been more comfortable with my body.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beauty is just a concept! September 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The concept of beauty is just that...a concept. This book shows you why you need to accept yourself and everything you are before you can really feel beautiful, whether you are big or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars What would Marilyn Monroe do...? September 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Life is short and time is of the essence, so why should anybody spend their time overly worrying about what others think about how they look or feel? Once you learn to accept YOU and love YOU, then you can truly move forward and get on with the business of being happy and living life to the fullest with the confidence and self-esteem that others would envy.

There are so many messages that I took away from this book, but the one that stands out most is, "we are not our weight." We are so much more than what the numbers on a scale read, or the reflection that is staring back at us from the mirror. This book would be an inspiration to anybody who is open to receiving the messages contained therein. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring Reading! September 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Inspiring Reading!

You know, initially I was skeptical at reading a
book about plus sized women.

There is so much mis-information around the
topic in general :(

It was refreshing to read an inspiring book
about being able to enjoy a healthy, plus-sized
curvaceous body without the usual media-based
brainwashing.

I especially enjoyed the little known facts
about Marilyn Monroe that you never really hear
about.

This is enjoyable, inspiring reading for
anyone, not just the plus-sized

5.0 out of 5 stars Live life without regrets and love yourself today September 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
We've heard many times before about the benefits of losing weight: "Lose weight to gain confidence and self esteem." It's a good idea to lose weight for health reasons but confidence should be due to more than just being a size four. As the author states in the book "You can't control the next person on the street ... that you come across, but you can control you." That's key. Read this book and your need of external approval of others will dissipate. The only opinion that matters is your own, period. We are not a size tag.

If you are in a rock bottom moment you deserve this little inspirational book.

This was an amazing book, the only reason I did not give it five stars is it much shorter then I expected. It made me feel better about myself and my size, I just wish it was longer

More About the Author

For a number of years, I was happy with who I was, despite being 'obese'. When I looked into the mirror, I found my lumps and bumps touchable, my thick thighs sexy, and the round of my tummy cute as a button...and then it got out of control.

After I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, my body reacted drastically, and it was not good. I ballooned up to 315 pounds, and I was depressed for a while before I realized how silly it was to be unhappy about my weight.

I decided not to worry too much about appearances and to just focus on being the best version of myself I possibly could. I started exercising and researching ways of improving my health.

That's when I discovered the Wheat Belly Diet.

While everyone should love themselves as they are first and foremost, the Wheat Belly Diet doesn't just help you to lose weight, it helps to improve the quality of your health!

Now, I'm having the time of my life, and I've never been more comfortable with my body.
