Designated Fat Girl
Check out this article written by Jennifer Joyner at Salon. First off, I'm gonna warn you that its heavy reading and potentially triggering to people who suffer from food addiction or eating disorders. Thirdly, what was REALLY triggering for me (triggering me to fly into a blind rage) was the comments at Salon regarding this piece. Not all, but several were unbelieveably hateful and completely lacking in human compassion. Jennette over at Half of Me has a review of Ms. Joyner's new book, Designated Fat Girl, which deals with eat disorder, her body image problems (actually, her abject self-loating), her botched gastric bypass and coming out of this dark tunnel, thinner but still grappling with her food addiction. Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
