Dear Librarians,

I have spent most of life trying to become thin, doing every diet known to man and some from Mars. I have a gold star for losing weight. I have a platinum one for gaining it back. I thought it was time to share my story.

GETTING WAISTED is the ultimate anti-diet book. It's not that I am an advocate of being fat but I am advocate of being good enough as we are. My story is funny and painful but it's also inspirational.

"...this book isn't really about being fat; it's about being human, and every woman who has ever used food to sate an emotional emptiness or longed for self-acceptance should read it." —Jillian Medoff, bestselling author of I Couldn't Love You More and Hunger Point

"...a book about truly finding yourself, being content with who you are, and developing an enduring sense of self esteem." —Dan Aykroyd
