Description of this Book
We've been convinced that happiness is something that only comes once we hit that goal weight, get those washboard abs, shrink ourselves down and change every part of ourselves. We believe that our bodies are the problem, but the truth is that our bodies are not the problem. How we've been taught to see them is the problem...it's time for us all to stop believing the lies, and take our power back. Megan's body image issues began when she was five years old. She spent her childhood chasing thinness, and at fourteen found herself spiralling into anorexia. After recovery she spent years dieting, binging, losing and gaining weight. Then she found body positivity, quit dieting, and finally escaped the cult of thin. Now she's determined to let as many people as possible know the truth: that we are all good enough as we are. If you're tired of being at war with your body, then this book is for you. With her inimitable flair, whip-smart wit and kickass attitude, Megan argues for a new way of seeing ourselves, and a world where every body is celebrated. Where there is no such thing as a 'bikini body diet' and 97 per cent of women don't hate the way they look. A powerful call to arms as much as it is inspirational and practical, this book is the life-changing answer you've been looking for.

MEGAN JAYNE CRABBE is a writer and activist. She lives in Essex, and when not being an all-round BoPo warrior, she can probably be found wearing pyjamas and talking to her dogs. Actually, she's still a BoPo warrior then. This is her first book.
