Love the Skin You’re In – Anthology of Body Image Posts

love the skin youre in cover 400x600

Love the Skin You’re In is an anthology of thirty-one body image posts from head ♥ heart ♥ health.

In September 2009 I woke up one morning bloated from a binge the night before. That day I vowed never to diet again. Over the next few months I navigated the journey from obsessive dieting and exercising to recovery and documented my discoveries on my blog. This anthology is a collection of thirty-one of those posts.

I hope this information gives you hope that recovery is possible. If someone who has dieted for close to five years and competed in two body-building contests can break free of the diet cycle then you can too.
