Publisher's Summary

If you're ready to shed more than just the weight, listen to one woman's remarkable journey of self-discovery and healing. In Diary of a Fat Girl you gain an intimate view into how one woman overcame her past and began anew. Through Lisa Sargese's heart-wrenching (but often laugh-out-loud funny) memoir, you'll be inspired to discover your inner strength and drive to triumph in your own life challenges.

Diary of a Fat Girl is a must-listen for anybody who has struggled with body image, self-harm, self-hatred, abusive relationships, low self-esteem, binge eating disorder, bulimia, or a lack of self-love. You'll be inspired to see yourself in a whole new way by listening to this amazing book.

She knew what she needed to do...she just couldn't. Lisa felt that she should know better than to hate herself for being fat. As a professor of women's studies she knew she should love herself just as she is was - all 420 pounds of herself.

But the truth was, she couldn't manage to love herself, try as she might.

And even after two lap band weight loss surgeries, she still suffered from binge eating disorder. In Lisa's words, she could eat "two whole pizzas, three Entenmann's cakes, and a two-liter bottle of soda in a three hour binge" all to punish herself for existing.

Something had to change. Lisa's second lap band weight loss surgery had failed over a decade earlier. But she was too poor and too defeated to attempt a third.

But after more than 10 years of suffering daily binges, unbearable feelings, abusive relationships, and failing physical health, she knew she couldn't continue as she had been.

In 2006 she underwent gastric bypass surgery and began the long and difficult journey to health and happiness for the first time in her life.
