    I’d love a copy of The Gifts of Imperfection by Brene Brown.
    I’m struggling mightily with some serious sadness and my whole being wants to punish my body with exercise and food restriction. Thanks for the self care reminders.

    And what if we can’t find what we need?
    What if we know people, work, tv, travel, stuff, food, exercise, whatever…doesn’t make us happy?
    Doing, having, buying…it none of it makes us happy? Isn’t it better then, to not have needs—since you know nothing will help?

    Congrats on your milestone! I can’t even begin to tell you how Weightless has helped me over the last 6 months. If I win I would love a copy of Beautiful You by Rosie Molinary.
    Thank you again

    I am trying to go through an attitude metamorphosis, surprisingly Facebook has helped me the most so far. I tell everyone, Focus on the Positives, then help them realize that its not such a big deal after all… or that it could be so much worse. The problem is – I listen to my own advise. All I do is focus on the negative & get so stressed out that I can’t sleep. I would like to read;Yoga and Body Image: 25 Personal Stories About Beauty, Bravery and Loving Your Body by Melanie Klein and Anna Guest-Jelley.

    I think that book would help me along my journey.

    I have read this blog for years and it has really helped me maintain my recovery and check in with myself when I feel like I am wavering. I would love to win A Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self-Acceptance. Accepting and loving myself is still a daily process and having something to read everyday to help encourage me and remind me to stick with it would be huge! Thanks for doing what you do and for giving back 🙂

    “You can heal your life” by Louise L. Hay
    I thank the author for posting this.
    I have been very ill most of my life and I made a decision to be positive, inspired by Ms Hay writing in her book. You can heal your life.
    Wow.
    The power of positive thoughts is unmatchable.
    Peace be with you.

    I am interested in Geneen Roth’s, Women, Food, and God. I also want to let you know your emails are the only thing I read every time they hit my inbox. I keep much of them in a different file, so when I need them I can re read the helpful, and insightful blog posts. What you write is useful and actually makes a very real difference for me. I often share it with friends who feel the same way about it, even if they are not dealing with food and body image issues. Thank you for your great work!

    Congrats on 6 years!!! That’s so exciting and your posts have helped me as I’ve recovered from my eating disorder.
    They say body image is the last to go in the healing process and i’ve been trying to more actively practice yoga so i’d love to get the “yoga and body image” book. I’ve been meaning to read it and then you did your review, which sold me!!

    I would be very interested in “30 Specific Strategies for Overcoming Emotional Eating” by Katie McLaughlin or even ” Beautiful You: A Daily Guide to Radical Self-Acceptance” by Rosie Molinary. I love to read and am constantly trying to find any and all ways to work through my anxiety, learning everything I can about Bipolar and how to accept my current body and ways to lose weight healthly, and without spending all the money for all the ways you see on TV .
