First of all, thanks for reading about my first audiobook. I hope you buy it - and not just because each purchase gets me one step closer to buying the leather pants of my dreams.
I hope you buy Fat Girl Walking because I want to start a conversation. Or continue a conversation, one I inadvertently started a while ago when I took my clothes off on a stage in front of 700 people. A lot of people thought I was awesome for doing that. A lot of others thought a size 18 woman had absolutely no business showing off her body. Unfortunately for them, I've made it my personal mission to destroy the ridiculous myth that every woman who is overweight hates her body and herself. I, Brittany Gibbons, and the Curvy Girls I speak to every day on the Internet, beg to differ. We love our bodies. We love fashion. We are in loving relationships, having lots of sex. We aren't just a fetish, we're normal women. Sure, sometimes we doubt ourselves, we're not robots, but not anymore than EVERY OTHER WOMAN ON THE PLANET. See, Fat Girls aren't freaks of nature. We're just like you. Maybe we are you.
Fat Girl Walking is a collection of stories from my life, my thoughts about the issues that I have faced as a woman, wife, mom, daughter, daughter-in-law, and Internet personality in regards to my weight. I have tried to be as honest as I possibly could - apologies in advance to my husband and parents, but hopefully any discomfort you feel is quickly replaced by laughter. The insecure texts to my husband and summer camp hijinks are hilarious if I do say so myself. And I also ask some tough questions, things like "What if my husband weighs less than I do?" and "Is my body hate ruining my daughter's life?"
Listen to Fat Girl Walking and let's start having these conversations. No pressure, but we may just save all of womankind.

One Woman's Body; One Woman's Story
This book is a must read for any person on their journey to loving their own body. Though it's Brittany's personal story there are many relatable pieces. I appreciate pioneers in the whole body acceptance movement. Brittany admits that there is still work for herself and the world, but we've come a long way.

Brittany made me gasp with horror, cry with sympathy, and laugh out loud because I could so relate to it all. if you have ever been fat, had issues with food, struggled with depression and anxiety, been a mom, or just in general been alive and are not a super model..... it's a must read.
