From the Author
But I'm also a woman who has struggled with being overweight and being invisible in a society that both perpetuates obesity and shuns those affected by it. I managed to get past the biggest part of my weight struggles and to take off the 100 plus pounds I needed to - although the journey continues every day.
I learned to change my mind, and to understand myself and the way my body works on a whole new level.
I wrote this book because I truly believe in paying it forward and in helping others who could use some real, solid advice from someone who has been where they are, rather than some random fitness guru who has never experienced the life of an overweight or obese person.
My genuine hope is that it helps everyone who reads it to find a new perspective and to allow her (or his) true self to emerge through the physical baggage she (or he) is carrying today. That's how it worked for me, once I figured out the really important "little things" I was missing - and I'm sharing them all with you in this book.
