WHATEVER YOUR SIZE

If you love yourself, you’ll always be your perfect weight

Bum too big, breasts too small, hair too thin? Disregarding conventional ideals of beauty and recognising their own attractiveness is something many women find difficult to do. In this book, two different women tell of their lifelong struggles with their weight and self-image: Tanja Marfo, who was always ‘too much’, and Caro Matzko, who almost starved herself to death as a young woman. They describe their quest for emotional equilibrium and their own mental ‘perfect weight’ – irrespective of their size. 

This book helps readers adjust their own self-image in a more relaxed and joyful way. Eating disorders have a role to play in helping us recognise deeper underlying problems and deal with their causes more effectively. To recover from an eating disorder, the sufferer must first reprogramme their psyche and learn to approach their problems in a different way.

Our bodies are the mirrors of our emotional lives. And the internal battles we fight with ourselves can have a big impact on our size. The real battleground, then, is in the mind – and that can be cured. For both women, self-acceptance and learning to love themselves was the key to their recovery.
