About this author

Erin Nieto is a former instructor of Academic Writing and English as a Second Language at the University of Illinois.

An avid blogger, she published her weight on her blog, www.cheapisexpensive.net, early in 2011, which led to a further exploration of the taboo of weight, and, ultimately, the photo project which makes up the book "How Much Do You Weigh?".

It is her greatest hope that the book can act as a catalyst for dialogue on this subject, which we are implored not to discuss, even with those that are closest to us.

She is mom to two and also writes a regular column for Chambanamoms.com. She lives in Urbana, IL.


““You wanna fly, you got to give up the shit that weighs you down.”

― Toni Morrison”

How Much Do You Weigh? by Erin S. Nieto
"I have always struggled with my image and weight. Now the mother of a toddler, the weight is even harder to shed. I loved the concept of this novel and appreciated the simplicity of the photos. These women were brave. It was an eye opener. Weight..." Read more of this review »

How Much Do You Weigh? by Erin S. Nieto
"Made me really think that there is nothing wrong with what I weigh. Doesn't matter if you are 100 pounds or 250. Your weight is just a number, and that number shouldn't define you."
How Much Do You Weigh? by Erin S. Nieto
"This book was certainly unique in that it conveys its message through pictures and numbers. Erin Nieto lets the photos speak for themselves. There is literally two pages of intro and then that's all the reading in this book. So anyone looking for..." Read more of this review »

Hunter S. Thompson
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
Hunter S. Thompson

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
