Publisher's Summary

A hilarious and inspiring memoir about one young woman's journey to find a better path to both physical and mental health.
At 29, 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.

Quirky and Oddly Inspiring AutoBio

Here I am creeping up on 50, and not a single bite of food has passed my lips without being carefully considered since I was 14. I snapped this book up like a fuzz-free M&M that's been on the floor for less than five seconds.
Kelsey is so very, very open about her life, her childhood. This is mostly a truly honest autobiography about her struggles with food, her struggles to be loved and accepted. It is painful, it is raw, it is warm, it is laugh tho' you just took a sip of water funny. And it's inspiring.
One of the first questions she's asked by her new intuitive eating coach goes along the lines of, "What if you're free from all your food worries and your body's just meant to be that weight?" That really, really made me think, and quite frankly, it made the entire book worth the credit right there. But the way Kelsey lives the answer makes the book worth the time you spend listening because there's a lot of give and take, a lot of back and forth, and the mind is a treacherous place to be.
If you're looking for a step-by-step, How-To book, this isn't it.
If you're looking for a place to start, an example of how someone started to love and accept herself and life as it is, this is a great place to begin the process of untying those knots and tangles we've all become
