Publisher's Summary

Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls is a manifesto and call to arms for women of all sizes and ages. With smart and sassy eloquence, veteran blogger Jes M. Baker calls on women to be proud of their bodies, fight against fat shaming, and embrace a body-positive worldview to change public perceptions and help women maintain mental health. With the same straightforward tone that catapulted her to national attention when she wrote a public letter addressing the sexist comments of Abercrombie & Fitch's CEO, Jes shares personal experiences along with in-depth research in a way that is approachable, digestible, and empowering. Featuring notable guest authors, Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls is an invitation for all women to reject fat prejudice, learn to love their bodies, and join one of the most progressive and life-changing revolutions in the world.

Yes, Yes, Yes!

For the first time, someone has said everything that I have thought or felt. No, I don't want to wear black every chance I get with a "pop of color" so I don't completely disappear into the woodwork. No, I don't want to cover my arms in the 100 degree heat. No, I don't want to listen to you complain about how miserable and fat you are every day of the week when you're 120 lbs soaking wet I am fat and NEVER complain about my weight. No, I don't want to go to Target and shop in the "Pluternity Overflow" department. No, I don't live solely to make everyone around me happy and guess what? I'm pretty god damn fine with that. Thank you, Jes. You're a badass and I appreciate you taking the stand that few of us could. I'm happy with who I am, fat and all. Fuck the haters.

save time. buy the book.

this was really wordy. I felt like it was a lot of lists and she reads fairly slowly. Not really a book that I would ever listen to again. If i had bought a physical copy I am sure that I would use it at some point as a reference. but unfortunately this was not a book that I can say was worth the time to listen to. The information wasnt life changing. but it was interesting enough that I kept going. after a while though I got annoyed with the way the author writes.

If you want to read this I would only recommend a physical copy.

A must read/Listen

A book for every woman or man who has doubted, belittled, or been ashamed of their body. Jes will help you take back your power and find your voice.

I really needed this.

I really needed this book. I was sad when I got to the end. I just might read it again. Jes Baker is inspiring and eye opening and fun. I have a new.... better attitude. I have a new found love and appreciation for my body, just as it is. I want to take good care of my body because I love it! Not because I hate it and want to change it. This moment is my life. I don't have to wait until I reach my goal wait to start living my life. This is it. I'm living it now. I'm enjoying it NOW. Fat, thin, average, male or female, this is a good read.

Taking Body Love to a Different Level

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I have actually recommended it. Especially to my friends (who like me) are in recovery.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The second chapter particularly hit a nerve, actually living your life now and not waiting for some particular event to start living.

Fun

It was fun hearing this book but I disagreed with some points. I liked the way the writer was reading her book.
