Loving your body is hard to do.  

Project Body Love is the story of my quest to find acceptance, respect, and maybe even love for my body after spending a lifetime counting calories and drops of sweat.  What followed was a two-year series of experiments that had me mining the depths of my past, dismantling the effects of Diet Culture on my self-worth, taking up bellydancing, posing for nude photographs, and other daring feats of self-exploration.  

Far from being a shiny tale of self-actualization, Project Body Love explores the complexity of being a fat person in a thin-obsessed world, and concludes with an entirely new perspective on  the elusive body love – one that was surprising, even to me.  

This is my story, and so much of it is also the story of millions of other women.

And so.

I wrote this for every woman who has spent too much time trying to make herself small.  

I wrote it for every woman who wants to love her body, but can’t figure out how.  

I wrote this for a world that needs its women committed to revolution and sovereignty and joy, not eating more salad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this book!!! This is a very courageously written book that will resonate with many women. It certainly did with me. It is different from many other books on body image in that it does not end with a happy and slim ever after. It ends with the conclusion that some progress was made as is evident for instance from the list of 41 things the author now knows about her body, but that the struggle for full acceptance of who she is physically will probably never be quite over. So many of us feel like that and this book will make you think, nod your head in full recognition of much of what the author describes and admire her for her courage and candor in writing openly and honestly about something so personal. Read it, you will love it.
