 Our Description

There's a wave of body dissatisfaction sweeping across society. While bookstore shelves are well-stocked with tomes on how to overcome body image problems, very few take a faith-based, much less Catholic, approach to self-healing. "Weightless: Making Peace With Your Body" speaks not only to those who may have faced an eating disorder, but also to anyone who wants to live an abundant life, unencumbered by our cultures obsession with thinness, physical beauty, youth, or food.

Kate Wicker is a wife, mom, and journalist. She is a senior writer and health columnist for Faith & Family  magazine and has written for a wide variety of regional and national media, including Atlanta Parent, Catholic Exchange, Children's Ministry, Family Fun, Pregnancy, and Woman's Day. She lives in Athens, Georgia.

This item received 4 stars overall. Poignant and Insightful Reflections on Body Image and God's Love for Us

Catholic author Kate Wicker combines a frank and sensitive memoir of her own struggle to overcome an eating disorder with an examination of the manifold ways in which women burden themselves with self-criticism in her thoughtful book, Weightless. Her book stands out in a field of seemingly endless volumes designed to “help” women reach perfection by any means possible – extreme dieting, drastic surgery, whatever it takes to equal the pictures that grace our magazines. While Wicker’s own story involves an honest account of the perfectionism and self-doubt that led to her eating disorder, the book is for “any woman who is trying to Spackle God-shaped holes with thinness, physical beauty, youth, or food.”
