At 29, Kelsey Miller had done it all: crash diets, healthy diets, and nutritionist-prescribed "eating plans", which are diets that you pay more money for. She'd been fighting her un-thin body since early childhood and, after a lifetime of failure, finally hit bottom. No diet could transform her body or her life. There was no shortcut to skinny salvation. She'd dug herself into this hole, and now it was time to climb out of it.

First of all I love how the author read the book. Her story telling voice is so nice and it felt like she was talking to me rather than reading a book. I am a big woman myself and I can relate to Kesley on so many levels. I am what I call a fit fat girl and her experiences with being in a larger body and others assuming she was "unhealthy" is something I have dealt with my whole life. I have many stories/experiences that are similar and it is so amazing to hear someone else has been through/feels the way I do too. Thank you Kelsey Miller. I highly recommend this book!

Jes Baker burst onto the body positivity scene when she created her own ads mocking Abercrombie & Fitch for discriminating against all body types - -a move that landed her on the Today show and garnered a loyal following for her raw, honest, and attitude-filled blog missives. Building on the manifesta power of Things, this memoir goes deeply into Jes' inner life, from growing up a fat girl to dating while fat. With material that will have readers laughing and crying along with Jes' experience, this new book is a natural fit with her irreverent, open-book style.
