That darned number on the scale. The endless "dieting" and calorie counting. It is a treadmill many of us have and are experiencing and I applaud Meyers for addressing it head on. The women who participate in the "Waisted" documentary are diverse in race and background, yet all struggle with viewing food in a healthy way. Reading this book made me think about issues like beauty, strength, value and honoring our parents. The plot was not as compelling as the synopsis implies due to the additional time spent processing and readjusting life trajectories for Alice and Daphne. I found myself just waiting for it to end rather than relishing the ending.
