Negative self-image and body criticism is a growing problem, especially among young women who vocalize their anxieties by speaking 'the language of fat'. Acclaimed motivational speaker and author of A Very Hungry Girl (Hay House, 2003), Jessica Weiner has spent years decoding this language and analyzing the destructive bonding sessions that women engage in every day. Written in a sassy, accessible tone that speaks to the MTV generation, this book shows women how to break the cycles of body loathing that affect all aspects of their lives: health, wealth, career, family and relationships. Filled with wisdom, guidance and stories of inspiration and triumph, the book is a step-by-step plan for creating a more fulfilling and positive life - and ending those negative bonding sessions for ever.
Considered this generation's "go-to authority" on women, girls, and confidence, Jess Weiner believes that if we want to change the culture, we have to work together with the media makers, marketers, and influencers who create the messaging. She is a social entrepreneur and the CEO of Talk to Jess, a consulting and strategy firm that advises brands about the issues facing today's women and girls. Jess has over twenty years of experience working in the field as a speaker, writer, and educator.
