I kept putting this book down to go look up the things the essayists were talking about, that's how good and helpful this book is.

Highly recommended.

I enjoyed the different perspectives that this book had to offer. The women had very different experiences with their weight throughout their lives. Some gave messages of positivity, some admitted they still struggle with accepting their weight. But the overall message of this book was to love yourself and your body, no matter your size or shape.
