I won a copy of this book from a friend's blog. I started reading it during Easter and took my time with it.

I've never had a really huge body image problem, but I still found it really helpful. I'll be honest and say I didn't fill out any of the self surveys or anything, but reading them gave me the opportunity to think about what she was saying and how I felt about those things.

Many of the things she writes about are really good reminders for women, for example, to not compare ourselves to wome

For anyone tired of diets and everything else that the world has given us to try to lose, this small book is a breath of fresh air.
Each chapter is easy to read and understand. The chapters are also short and not overwhelming.
Ms. Parker adds something at the end of each chapter that I really like: a real life example of the principles taught in the chapter AND a short worksheet to help reinforce those principles.
This book is worth reading not only for dieters but also for anyone who may have a

More like 3.5 stars. Good information about becoming aware of what we are saying to ourselves about our body image, realizing what a gift our bodies are and treating ourselves with respect and understanding, especially in regards to food. Most, if not all, women would benefit from reading Love Your Body, and I recommend it to women of all ages. I really like the spiritual/LDS view presented in this book, versus the more "worldly" views found in a lot of other eating and diet books. ...more

I'll be up front, I didn't actually finish this book. It wasn't what I thought and I didn't feel like it was worth it to finish it. I was expecting more of a health/nutrition kind of book and less of a self-help-let's-analyze-why-I-have-negative-feelings-about-food book. It wasn't bad, just not what I was looking for, and I don't think it's the kind of advice I really need. ...more

I decided to do a quick read through before I tried any of the exercises. There are a lot of habits the author highlights that I subconsciously do, and it is good for me to realize it. I've already started implementing some of the suggestions and I look forward to doing each of the mental/written exercises to help me love my body better. ...more

I loved this self-help book. It isn't a diet book, but a tool to help you discover the way you view food, your body, and how your attitude plays a big part of weight maintenance. I found the book very uplifting and hopeful. I will read this book again and again. ...more
