In some countries, the fatter a woman is, the more beautiful she is.  So this is my challenge: To set ourselves free.  From the self-sabotage.  And from believing that being thin means having true value."From a failed first marriage to an abusive alcoholic, to a fictional "trainer" living inside her head telling her what a fitness failure she was is her unflinchingly honest portrayal of a struggle millions of women experience every day.  But it is also a funny, gut-honest tale that will inspire readers of all ages with body image issues to embrace their value and beauty.  They’ll learn to silence their own inner critics, debunk self-sabotaging lies, and get spiritually and emotionally happy.
