Passing for Thin: Losing Half My Weight and Finding My Self
reviewed on
Helpful Score: 1


This book deals with the author's emotional struggles as she rapidly loses weight with the support of a group similar to Alcoholic Anonymous. Obese for much of her life, Frances is unable to believe she is beautiful or worthy or deserving. Little by little she is able to see value in herself. This is not a book on how to lose weight, as some might expect. Rather, it is an honest look at the insecurities and struggles of a formerly obese person as she achieves the body she thought she always wanted.
