Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body

Countless women today are weighted down by the thought that they are not thin enough, pretty enough, young enough, or good enough. While bookstore shelves are well stocked with advice on how to overcome body image problems, very few take a faith-based, much less Catholic, approach to self-healing.

This book is for every American woman who has body issues. (Shall we all raise our hands in unison?) In many ways, I came to terms with body image some time ago. However, no one is immune and every so often I will find myself beating back the mental need to measure up to someone else's terms. This book is good spiritual medicine for those times. I wish I could afford to give it to every woman I know, young or old.

I wasn't sure if I could read this at first, as at the beginning the author goes into her own eating disorder experience. Such recollections are often difficult for me to read, as they dredge up unpleasant parallels to my own eating disorder. I also get frustrated when I read about how other people seem to check off the boxes of recovery—admit problem, tell family, go to counseling, etc.—and emerge healed. It hasn't worked that way for me. Thankfully, though, that portion of the book is really q ...more

This book was over all very good. I only gave it 3 stars because I wish it focused less on women with many children because it would be a great book to give teens and young adults who are struggeling with food. The multipul chapters about the authors children makes it difficult to give to people without kids and still have it be affective. There are some very good thoughts and the meditations at the end of each chapter are a nice touch.

“We are beautiful because we are sons and daughters of God, not because we look a certain way.” 24 likes
“We’re not protecting our daughters if we forbid makeup, eschew fashionable hairstyles, or wear dowdy clothes. The feminine form is beautiful. Sure, we don’t want to hide behind makeup or wear immodest clothes to draw attention to ourselves. But there’s nothing wrong with wanting to accent our femininity.” 13 likes
