Susie Orbach is a renowned psychotherapist and for a really interesting look into body image, check out her book called: "Bodies". I loved it. emoticon

I can't recommend "Health at Every Size: The Surprising Truth About Your Weight" by Linda Bacon, PhD enough! Tons of scientific information and studies with the references to back it up as well as an IE program included at the end.

I also posted a blog a while back with all of the IE related books on my current "wish list" at Amazon. You can find that post here: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_

I haven't read Fat is a Feminist Issue because I don't really consider myself a feminist and don't know how I feel about this particular book ...

Fitness isn't about looks or being thin. And you certainly can't tell how fit a person is by looking at them.

Here is my thing -- I am not a binge eater, I am not a stress eater, I am not an emotional eater. A lot of what I am struggling with is simply body image. I do think I have a good handle on the eating. I just did a blog about humility and seeing myself for what it is. It is a tough thing, but I am forcing myself to realize that I just had a baby. I am NOT going to pop right back into my size 8's. I am breastfeeding and chances are I will NOT go back until I am finished wiht that (this is baby #4 and has been the pattern with all of them). I went jeans shopping yesterday and left empty handed because I couldn't fit into the sizes I thought I should be wearing. Dumb, I know. I need to dress for how I am now, not what I perceive myself to be. Make sense?

I eat good. I eat healthy. I don't count calories. I am struggling with not being able to exercise much because of a new baby and the demands that go along with that. I do think that is part of it.

I do think I am going to download this book for my Kindle, I read the sample and I liked it.

Do you struggle with binging?

I'm imagining what you felt about Women Food and God, I know what you mean, Breaking free from Emotional Eating is more straightforward and has intuitive eating exercises!

When Food is Love is her personal story and boy is it a tear jerker, I really liked it. :)

I just downloaded a sample to my Kindle. Thanks for the reccomend!! Sounds like a great book!

Does anyone else have any other recommendations for IE? I have the IE book but am struggling a tad and would like some more info...

I tried Women, Food and God but it didn't appeal to me.
