I'm just reading this book now - I remember seeing Racer's post which piqued my interest, and then GG's because of the Colbert interview, and now JLx's, since we've been posting about fat acceptance on the Self Esteem board. It just felt like the right time for me to read a book like this, so I blasted an order to Amazon for it the other week.

I'm about halfway through, where she's talking about the hereditary studies on height and weight showed that it's all predestined, you know? And I keep seeing all these pictures in my head of my mom's family, and they all look like Weebles. Remember them? "Weebles wobble, but they don't fall down." And my dad's side of the family doesn't really enter into the equation because they all died young of lung cancers and consumption. (Thin, though. Maybe I take up smoking to lose the weight? Nah. The odds don't look so hot from here.)
