Ever been fat shamed? Even by your own voice?
Don’t waste another minute—because it’s time to love the skin you’re in, no matter what you weigh!
This isn’t a diet book. And it’s not going to tell you how to lose weight. It has something much more important to share, and you won’t believe the difference you’ll feel.
In Fat Shame: Ditch the Shame, Get Confident, and Claim the Life You Deserve, author Nicole Black shares her own journey with yo-yo dieting and going from obese to thin, from thin to obese, and finally, from obese to healthy. She discovered that even at a size four, she didn’t feel thin or beautiful on the inside. She set out to change that, and now she shows you how you can too.
In these pages, you’ll be empowered to develop an internal strength and confidence that never depends on what anyone says to you or about you. You’ll discover how to:
• Set healthy boundaries and deal with fat shamers
• Become your own first responder
• Begin to heal body dysmorphia
• Give up the victim and blame game
• Use yoga to relieve stress
• Trust that you’re enough right now
If you struggle with loving yourself, even if it’s not related to your weight, Fat Shame creates a solid way to find happiness and feel beautiful just the way you are.
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 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!
