Find all of my reviews at StarsI have to confess I wanted to read this simply out of morbid curiosity Despite my addiction to terrible reality television the one thing I ve never been able to stomach are weight loss shows I ve never understood why someone would subject themselves to motivation like this What the reasoning aside from public humiliation behind being weighed wearing things like this could be And how in the hell 90% of the participants would ever be able to keep the weight off when not living in a controlled environment with a personal chef no McDsTaco Bell available no job to go to or kidsspouse to deal with and working out umpteen hours a day Those shows just depress me Buuuuuuuuut as a fat woman I m still fascinated by new and notable releases that feature fat women Especially when the premise is to address the pink elephant in the room head on This is the beginning of our experiment What would these women do to lose weight Would they degrade themselves We knew the answer immediately The next uestion was this How far would they go And let me tell you this author really delivered some real wallops in the form of letting you into the mind of a heavyset person How are you supposed to understand That I think about my body every minute That I worry about my thighs than about the state of the worldEveryone hated a fat woman but none than she hated herselfClothes made the woman Naked made the shame This book was pretty good until it wasn t any The second half kind of fell apart Not to mention Like the smuggest of men the scale mocked her Scales seemed so damn masculine particularly the machines in doctors offices standing above her with their air of superiority their broad shoulders meant to keep her in place the metal scornful as she stepped on smirking when the numbers settled Not everything has to include man hating FFS dudes aren t the ones who have been buying Cosmo all these freaking years We women do a pretty good job all on our own fat shaming each other

Summary ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Randy Susan Meyers Randy Susan Meyers ↠ 8 characters Summary Waisted by Randy Susan Meyers ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Hne plump in a family of model thin women discovered early that only slimness earns admiration Alice break up skinny when she met her husband risks losing her marriage if she keeps gaining weight The two women meet at Waisted Located in a remote Vermont mansion the program promises fast dramatic weight loss and Alice Daphne and five other women are desperate enough to leave behind their families for this once in a lifetime opportunity The catch They must agree to always be on camera; afterward the world. You can probably count the women that don t worry about their weight on one hand As someone who has been overweight and managed to lose it but constantly thinks about it the premise of this book drew me in Seven women seriously overweight sign up for a weight loss farm where their efforts will be documented on film But is it a serious documentary or reality tv Or something else The book is told from the perspective of two of the seven women Alice who married her director husband during the one period in her life when she was thin only to find out how important looks are to him when she gained weight Daphne is a gifted makeup artist with a loving husband but the mother from Hell As soon as the women arrive at the weight loss farm we know this is not going to go well A cross between army basic training and prison There are threats taunts and punishments It only takes the reader seconds to realize that the methods are actually dangerous It s like someone took The Biggest Loser and mixed it with Cool Hand Luke There are a few interesting points as the women put up with the humiliation and pain because they hate being fat so much What led them to obey these people Each day Alice became frightened by the crap she took in her pursuit of this overwhelming desire to be thin My problem with this book is I loved the premise and was disappointed with the way it plays out It started much stronger than it finished One major plot line seemed to be started and then dropped I liked that each woman came to her self realizations in her own way but some of the thoughts came across as cheesy simplistic and worthy of a magazine article than an in depth discovery My thanks to netgalley and Atria Books for an advance copy of this book
