With striking honesty and a sincerity that shows the beauty of her soul, Kate Wicker's words in Weightless point readers to the true formula for health of body, mind, and spirit. By sharing her own story, Kate has created a resource that will support and uplift women of any age, vocation, or station in life. --Lisa M. Hendey, author, The Handbook for Catholic Moms
Rare is the family that is untouched by negative body image, whether it's just the longing to lose a few pounds or a full-fledged eating disorder. With honesty and candor, Kate Wicker's book is a valuable tool in reclaiming femininity and authentic beauty for ourselves and our daughters. --Elizabeth Foss, author, Small Steps for Catholic Moms and Real Learning

I love Kate's theme of making peace with our bodies because it admits that we are going to see flaws with our appearance and we are going to be forced to compare ourselves to professional models and actresses simply because of the culture in which we live, but that we have a choice. We can choose to battle the mirror, knowing full well that it is a losing battle and a very vain one at that. Or we can choose to concentrate on the beauty of our bodies, their amazing ability to move us through this life and produce life. We can choose to model true beauty for our children (I have three girls) by actually believing that what makes us beautiful is how we treat others and love one another.
Kate touches on every topic that women think about but might not openly share with her friends or husband, such as our spiritual hunger, projecting our own insecurities onto our daughters, aging and much more.
I encourage every woman, whether of faith or simply struggling with body image issues to pick up this book and read it. You will find a friend and confidant in Kate Wicker. You will nod your head up and down the entire way through and you will find wonderful, insightful questions and resources to help you make peace with your body.
The book is filled with great insights from both the author and saints alike. In fact, there are a few quotes from saints directly relating to exercise or weight, which, truth be told, I didn't even know existed before reading this book.
This book is a rare gem, speaking of women's body issues from a Catholic along with modern-day insights. Buy it - if you're anything like me you'll probably devour it in a day (it's short but power-packed) and want to buy a hundred more copies to share with every woman you know!
