The weight of a women

However, this simple, newly released novel about Jenni, from Nutritionist and author Tansy Boggon, hits on so many facets of body acceptance, that it is hard to ignore

“Jenni knows there must be more to life. She believes her life will finally begin when she loses her excess weight”… sound familiar?

“As Jenni explores a final desperate attempt to lose weight, she becomes curious about an eccentric new colleague, Norelle, who seems to eat whatever she wants without any noticeable hang-ups.”

Jenni wants to discover Norelle’s secret; what she learns not only changes her perspective on her weight concerns but the way she sees herself.

Jenni comes to understand that the weight of any woman does not determine whether they are good enough or deserving of the love and happiness they crave.

Each chapter begins with observations and I particularly liked this one….

Acceptance of your body doesn’t mean that you necessarily love your body, but that you no longer fight against it”
