What a name for a book. My kids have laughed so hard at what I’m reading. My Big Bottom Blessing: How Hating My Body Led to Loving My Life.
About the Book
One woman’s hilarious, yet totally honest battle with body image exposes the secret that loving the girl in the mirror isn’t about changing how you look, but about changing what you see. Teasi Cannon’s lifelong struggle with weight loss not only made her hate her body, but destroyed her marriage and led to an emotional breakdown. Today she’s happy about her bottom, not because the size has changed, but because her perspective has. Her funny, gut-honest insights will inspire millions of women of all ages with body image issues to embrace their value and beauty. They’ll learn to silence their own inner critics, debunk self-sabotaging lies, and get spiritually and emotionally happy. Her book includes an in-depth book club or small group study guide.

This is an incredibly honest look at how many women sabotage their self image and destroy their lives by the inner voices that they listen to. I know that there is no way I would be able to be this honest in any kind of public venue like a book. The author shares so many personal experiences that you feel like you know her. The struggle with weight is an ongoing battle that is being fought on so many fronts in households all around the world. I loved the fact that this book is not about fat vs skinny. I also appreciated the fact that this book does not come to the conclusion that weight is a sin issue.
I picked up this book expecting to read it over the course of a week or two. Instead I read it quickly while I was waiting in the car line. It was a quick easy read that packed so many nuggets of truth. I think this is definitely a book worth reading for anyone who has dealt with weight or self-image issues.
