I am not a big woman and never have been. Weight has never been an issue for me, not until I hit 55 and my thyroid decided to go wonky, and my hormones were all over the place. I promptly put on 30 lbs. for no apparent reason. With that came some extreme self-loathing.
I read FAT SHAME over Christmas hoping I could come to terms with the over-50 me and stop comparing myself with the 20-something me.
This book is about so much more than weight. It is about loving yourself and your body at any age and at any weight. The author is very candid in telling her heart-wrenching stories and how she overcame trauma, depression, low self-esteem and self-loathing and gives help and advice to her readers on how to do the same.
I love the meditations and little “Mindful Moments” at the end of every chapter.
Seriously, don’t let the title fool you. This book is about learning to love yourself and tips to gain confidence. In this world where looks are everything, Nicole Black teaches us to love ourselves and work on the inside first to become the most beautiful you ever!
Black encourages readers to let go of their insecurities and embrace their bodies in this debut motivational work.
The author writes that she had body dysmorphic disorder for years, and as a result, her weight fluctuated greatly. She tried yo-yo dieting, fasting, and working out, but because of her low self-esteem, she couldn’t find a weight-control strategy that worked. Her outlook needed to change, she realized: “when you truly learn to love yourself as you are, it’s actually easier to be physically healthy,” she writes in her introduction to this body positive guide. “The love you feel for yourself causes you to want to take care of your body, and the person on the outside begins to reflect the person you’ve cultivated on the inside.” With this book, Black seeks to help readers silence their own negativity, as well as that of others who attempt to shame them for their appearance. Positive body image, she says, requires eliminating self-loathing thought patterns, seizing one’s own agency, fostering self-forgiveness, opening oneself to the possibility of joy, and ultimately loving oneself. Black shares her own experiences with judgmental people, and how she learned to love herself through activities like meditation, therapy, and yoga. Each chapter includes exercises, activities, and a “Mindful Moment”—a short anecdote to help readers change their way of thinking. Black’s prose has a tone that’s both encouraging and pleasantly urgent: “When you find yourself feeling panicky or emotionally distressed, say to yourself, I’m going to be my own first responder.” Her advice has applications that go beyond questions of weight and appearance; indeed, they address insecurities and self-defeating behaviors that are common in many people. The book is also connected to the author’s larger regimen of weight-loss strategies; for example, it concludes with an advertisement for a 21-day “Keto Cleanse.” However, the self-love that she advocates here will be valuable for readers of all body types.
A positive guide to body image that reminds readers to first address one’s inner self.
