About the Author

Lisa remembers, at six years old, hiding in her grandmother's kitchen and eating six meatballs in under a minute. She was truly hungry, but she didn't want anyone to see her eat, so she binged in secret. Placed on restrictive diets beginning in kindergarten, she was continually sneak eating and binge eating as a child, partially out of rebellion against her narcissistic mother, mostly because she was ravenous all the time. After years of yo-yo dieting, binge eating and purging as a teen, and reaching nearly four hundred pounds, she sought out her first weight loss surgery at age twenty-three. She soon discovered that weight loss surgery isn't the easy way out. Her book, Diary of a Fat Girl, documents her first year after gastric bypass, her third in a series of weight loss surgeries that didn't work. She wrote every day as she unraveled the pain of her past and told, in painful detail, what it's like to recover from a severe eating disorder. Brutally telling the details of her weight-loss surgeries and struggles as the daughter of a narcissistic mother, Diary of a Fat Girl follows Lisa on her difficult journey to recovery. Discover how she lost most of the weight, gained it back, lost it again, but gained a more holistic understanding and acceptance of her body that goes beyond diets, dress sizes, or gym hours.

Dedicated to helping people live healthier, happier lives, Prof Lisa Sargese is a certified hypno-counselor and trained qigong therapist. Lisa speaks and vlogs on a number of personal development topics, including goal-reaching, recovery, the mind-body connection, spirituality, and healing. In 2009, she received the Mirror Mirror Award for her work in body positivity and eating disorder recovery. In 2012 she was honored with the Tikkun Olam Award for her interfaith work. She teaches religion and psychology in her home state of New Jersey
