The Weight of Being: How I Satisfied My Hunger for Happiness

by Kara Richardson Whitely Author

A memoir of living in a world where fat prejudice is rampant. Kara Richardson talks about her lifelong struggle with food addiction, shame, and weight-related trauma. Her goal throughout is weight loss rather than fat acceptance, and she goes to extreme lengths in pursuit of it, from weight-loss surgery to climbing Mt Kilimanjaro three times, but she does find some amount of self-acceptance over the course of the story.
