A hilarious and inspiring memoir about one young woman's journey to find a better path to both physical and mental health.

At twenty-nine, Kelsey Miller had done it all: crash diets, healthy diets, and nutritionist-prescribed "eating plans," which are diets that you pay more money for. She'd been fighting her un-thin body since early childhood, and after a lifetime of failure, finally hit bottom. No diet could transform her body or her life. There was no shortcut to skinny salvation. She'd dug herself into this hole, and now it was time to climb out of it.
With the help of an Intuitive Eating coach and fitness professionals, she learned how to eat based on her body's instincts and exercise sustainably, without obsessing over calories burned and thighs gapped. But, with each thrilling step toward a healthy future, she had to contend with the painful truths of her past.
BIG GIRL chronicles Kelsey's journey into self-loathing and disordered eating-and out of it. This is a memoir for anyone who's dealt with a distorted body image, food issues, or a dysfunctional family. It's for the late-bloomers and the not-yet-bloomed. It's for everyone who's tried and failed and felt like a big, fat loser. So, basically, everyone.

Editorial Reviews

"Big Girl is so much more than the story of a girl's life-long struggles with food and her body. It is a unflinchingly honest and laugh-out-loud hilarious look at what it means to be a woman, full stop. Kelsey Miller's struggles might not specifically be yours, but no one reading this spectacular debut memoir will doubt that how she deals with those struggles, her successes and very human failures, are universal. This book is, quite simply, an act of both courage and kindness, shining a spotlight on the things we all hold secret, and in the process it becomes not only inspirational and uplifting, but more importantly, an enormously entertaining piece of writing."-Stacey Ballis, author of Out to Lunch and Recipe for Disaster
