Publisher's Summary

For anyone who's ever avoided the mirror, skipped swimming, or got stuck in a dress in a changing room...
Almost every woman worries about her weight. For Anne H. Putnam, it became unavoidable: By the age of 17 she weighed over 20 stone and had tried everything, from dieting to fat camp to wearing big t-shirts. When she decided to have weight-loss surgery, she thought everything would change. But now, nine years later and ten sizes smaller, she has discovered that changing your body doesn't automatically change how you feel about it.
Navel Gazing is a funny, passionate and no-holds-barred memoir of one woman's quest to accept her own body; to feel normal. It will make you laugh, cry, cringe, and wonder why it's so hard for women to feel happy with the way they look.

Glad It's Over

Tedious, tortuous listen about a spoiled, incredibly crude, amazingly self-absorbed individual. I couldn't wait for it to be over. I have been over weight all my life, but I guess I can give this book credit for keeping me from ever thinking about having gastric bypass surgery.
