The Weight of Being by Kara Richardson Whitely
"A lovely candid book about dealing with weight. Liked her honesty. Very impressed.

Thanks to author,publisher,and NetGalley for the chance to read this book. While I got the book for free, it had no bearing on the rating i gave it."
Gorge by Kara Richardson Whitely

“The mind gives up a lot sooner than the body, making it tough to know if you’re really in trouble or if you’re just making excuses, calling it quits before you’ve reached your full potential.”
Kara Richardson Whitely, Gorge: My Journey Up Kilimanjaro at 300 Pounds

“Even things that seem as if they always have been or will be are indeed temporary. We’re all moving parts, passing in and out of life. The air we breathe, the earth we stand on, and especially the people we meet are already on their way out. Still, every experience, every interaction becomes part of our DNA, our past, and our path forward.”
Kara Richardson Whitely, Gorge: My Journey Up Kilimanjaro at 300 Pounds

“I had mutilated myself with food year after year. Now I had to carry the results with me day in and day out. I wanted to blame everyone and everything else. My gloves were too thin. My boots were too heavy. With each step I took, my feet dug deeper into the scree, making it more difficult to move. I could see that my bitching and moaning were holding up the group. I had a choice: stand still or keep going. Going back was not an option.”
Kara Richardson Whitely, Gorge: My Journey Up Kilimanjaro at 300 Pounds
