My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Fat Girl’s Guide To Loving Your Body is a must read for anyone who is carrying a few extra pounds (or a lot of extra pounds) and who is unhappy with their body. As an obese, probably morbidly obese lady (yeah, I hate that term too) so much in this book spoke volumes to me. I was a chubby teen who went on my first diet at 18. I slimmed down to 8 stone for my wedding, only to go up to 16 stone later.
K.L. Montgomery is an author that I love. She doesn’t write about stick insect, Barbie doll heroines in her books. She writes about curvy ladies, ladies with bigger butts and no thigh gaps and I love her for this. In this book she writes about how we should love our bodies no matter what shape and size they are. I also love one of the mantras she used several times – you do not have to be pretty.
I loved reading her own experiences with weight issues and it really helps to know that I’m not alone, there are so many others like me out there. The assignments that she sets are very thought provoking and really make you think hard about your own thoughts and perceptions.
I really loved reading this book and think that many people would get a lot from reading this.
