Obesite, overweight and pleasing plump; have you heard these words and cringed?  Are you running through life looking for things to change your weight and risking your health?  Are you always looking at things outside yourself to help you 'feel better' with the person in the mirror?  Can you ever accept your appearance as it is and be happy with who you are?  Impossible you say?  No, it is called self acceptance regardless of outside peer pressure or forces. 

My guest is Monica Parker, author of Getting Waisted:  A Survival Guide to Being Fat in a Society That Loves Thin.  Monica is also an accomplished comedy actress and TV writer, so she knows the struggles of looking good, perfect and small on a stage that is society.  She will be sharing her decades of diet experiences, from the wild and crazy to the fads that come along.  Monica found what mattered to her most in life, self acceptance and joy.
