"Fat Girl Walking: Sex, Food, Love, and Being Comfortable in Your Skin...Every Inch Of It" by Brittany Gibbons

I was at the library with my boys the other day (man, do I love the library!) and Fat Girl Walking caught my eye. I have always been a curvy girl, and a curvy girl who struggles with her body issues to boot. I certainly am not one of those women who embrace their curves and imperfections with open arms! What I definitely am is a woman who wishes that she was thinner and more accurately matched society's definition of "beautiful". Fat Girl Walking is the story of Brittany Gibbons- a woman who has been down the same paths of insecurity that I have, but is walking with her head held high. She has embraced being who she is- a bigger girl- and is sharing her message with the world.

In the beginning of her book Brittany reflects on her childhood and what events shaped her life. A chubby child myself, I could relate to many of Brittany's ups and downs and rejections. There were definitely a few things that Brittany went through that I am happy to say that I didn't go through! It was interesting to read about where she came from as a person. However I enjoyed the last third of the book the most. That's when things really get interesting as Brittany begins to address how she came to accept herself just as she is. She describes her rise as an accidental advocate for women everywhere, no matter what shape or size they are. This is when I started to really become enamored with Brittany and her message. Her rise to fame was not without its ups and downs, and there was one part in particular that I found myself relating to on such a personal level that I had tears in my eyes while reading it. Thank-you, Brittany, for your words. You may never know how the things that you write affect some people.

Although there were a few parts of Fat Girl Walking that lagged for me closer to the beginning, I found myself truly enjoying this book about not being valued by your pants size. I learned a lot, I laughed, I even shed a tear or two. Brittany gets what being a bigger girl is all about, and I admire all that she is doing to make women such as myself love themselves a little more. This is a must-read for anyone who has felt down on herself for how she looks, whether she's fat, thin, or in-between. I can't wait to read what Brittany comes up with next as I am now officially a fan!

  2. hello,
    Male sexual enhancement products such as herbal dietary aids have bombarded many supermarkets and corner stores. But do these products really do sexual enhancement or are these used merely as placebo effect?
