I love how Emme focuses on taking care of yourself, being as healthy as you can be and making the most of yourself. This book is NOT about being a large women, it is about being a confident woman who values herself. If Emme focuses on her size, it is only to help those of us who are still hung up on not being a size 2 get over it and get a real life! (Or, embrace the life we have with joy). She IS a beautiful person. I read this once a few years back from the library, and again after requesting it from PBS. It's a little difficult relinquish this book, but if someone else can be enriched by it, it is only right that I should pass it on. I'm richer for having read it.
