From the Publisher:

How To Love Yourself And Enjoy Your Life -- Right Now -- Even If You Are Overweight. An Inspirational Guide For Millions Of Americans.

Carol Johnson once thought of herself as "unattractive, undisciplined, undesirable, unmotivated, undeserving, uninvited" -- but no more! Having struggled since childhood with diets, low self-esteem, and the prejudices of others, she has come to believe that being overweight does not make someone bad, lazy, or less deserving of happiness. And it has become her mission to make other people understand that their weight is not a measure of their self-worth.

Thsi book is written from Ms. Johnson's hard-won and firm conviction that, like flowers, people "come in all colors, shapes, and sizes -- but they're all beautiful." It is an inspirational guide for all those women (and men) who have been putting their happiness on hold, convinced that if only they were thin, everything else in their lives would be better. Carol Johnson's answer to this self-defeating attitude is that "You can feel good now, look good now, be the most you can be -- right now!"

By separating physiological fact from popular fiction, she helps people to understand they they are not to blame for their size; by focusing on health rather than weight loss, she explains how to set achievable goals. And through the sheer force of her dynamic message and personality, she inculcates the belief that anyone can get compliments and command respect in an ample body.
