Big Girl: How I Gave Up Dieting and Got A Life (Book Review)

Title: Big Girl: How I Gave Up Dieting & Got A Life
Author: Kelsey Miller
Year: 2016

I want to start by saying this is not a sad story. Or a triumphant story that tells of how life became perfect as the end. I think diet/beauty/self-esteem related books frequently go one of those ways. What is this book? This is one of those books that makes you nod your head while you are reading it because you know what she talking about. At least for me it was that kind of book. I definitely recommend reading this one.

Kelsey writes about her insecurities and attempts at weight loss from youth to adulthood in a way that makes you want to keep reading.(Good thing too. She is writer for Refinery29.) If you are a life long dieter, have tried some weird weight loss program, or enjoy a good memoir, you should give this book a chance.


  1. Sounds like great book for anyone on the weight loss journey now or has been in the past. Thanks for sharing and will have to keep in mind to read soon #happynowlinkup

  2. Always a struggle for me! Anything to read to help the process =) #happynowlinkup

  3. I've heard of this one, so thanks for sharing! It does sound like something I'd be able to nod my head along too.


  4. This definitely sounds like a book I could relate to. I've struggled with weight gain and loss ever since the age of 8. Thanks for the review and for joining us at the #happynowlinkup!
