Karen Cigna

I am am a wife, mother of a 13 yr. old girl, a civil negligence trial lawyer, a body size acceptance advocate, speaker and author. In writing this book, I, decided to make my life an open book in order to share my experience in searching for the perfect size body, (what is that anyway?) during the first 29 years of my life. This search led me through what I like to refer to as the ABC's of my Eating Disorder. They include: anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder (BED), chronic dieting, compulsive exercising, and compulsive overeating. I decided it was time to understand my own feelings, and find my voice to express them instead of starving or stuffing them away. Through self acceptance and no longer defining the size of my life by the size of my body, I was able to treat myself with a level of self-love, gentleness and kindness, at a size 24 Wide, in a way I had never been able to do at size 2. I celebrated 23 years of recovery from Bulimia in May of 2017. I have lost over 100 pounds and maintained the weight loss, but more importantly I lost self-hate and self-loathing. If you choose not to buy or read my book, I want you to know YOU are lovable, unique, and beautiful, whatever the size of your body, bank account, job status, home, car, or any other external values, you may be judging the size of yourself and the size of your life by. Have a large sized life!!!
