I `live in my head' and usually give little or no thought to my physical self. This book changed that. Reading this book has inspired me to face myself in the mirror, literally.
Even though Jessica's life and my life are very different while reading this book I found myself thinking, "That's me!", and then, "She's right!" and finally, "I can do this, too!"
I saw myself reflected back from Jessica's story and felt a tremor of hope. She'd had changed her relationship with food and her body, maybe I could, too.
If you are looking for inspiration to start or keep going, this is a great book to have handy.
