    I like Lesley I always read her pieces at XOJane because every time without fault they are interesting well written and informative In fact she is the reason I found out about XOJane in the first place She is one of those people who exist on the Internet because like I live in Greece guys but who with their pre

    I feel like the whole book can be summed up by Lesley's motto Your body is not a tragedy I was pretty familiar with Lesley's work from her blog and XOJane so a lot of the book was familiar territory But for people not as familiar with her work it's a great primer on how to accept all bodies Even with the knowledge of some of the stories like the titular Two Whole Cakes episode it was still a really fun great read I got through
