Note
"From the beginning, [the author] was told she was too sensitive, too emotional, too curious, too demanding, too intense, and too big. Yet gaining and losing weight for decades did not improve her self-worth or reduce other people's criticisms ... When her struggle with food ended ... she kept trying to fix other broken parts of herself with therapy, intensive meditation retreats, and rigorous spiritual practices. Yet it was only when [the author] stopped trying to change or fix herself that she was at last able to feel at home in her mind, body, and life. [This book] explores the personal beliefs, hidden traumas, and social pressures that shape not just women's feelings about their bodies, but also their confidence, choices, and relationships"--Amazon.com
