Pretty good book, offered some new advice
on April 23, 2000
I have been overweight since age 6, and currently wear 16-20 at age 21 (depending on manufacturers sometimes I can get into a 14) Before reading this book, I was completely obsessed with weight and losing it to get a man. I have been up and down the yo-yo the past 2 years, losing 80 pounds, gaining 50 of those back, losing 20 of those, gaining 30, losing 10...you get the idea. I am at a lower weight today because I finally embraced the idea that emotions, not food or weight is the problem.
Katie's book showed me what B.S. it is to use weight as an excuse for not having a man. And how having one is not gonna make life perfect. I think this is a wonderful book and wish it had been around when I was younger because it would've spared me a lot of pain. I recommend it and only give it 4 stars because I felt it slighted women who are above size 20, which I was once a 28 and only recently stopped needing 22s and 24s.
