That is the headline splashed across an article in September’s Glamour magazine and online site. Weiner, a well-known author and speaker, has stressed for years that women of all weights and sizes can live happy and fulfilling lives right now. She lived her words, and created a successful career and life while being a size 18. That alone sounds radical in today’s society that worships thinness and works hard to make women feel unsuccessful and unworthy if we dare to take up more space than a will-o’-wisp.
Then Weiner went to her physician, and that is all it took to take her down the familiar weight loss path of dieting and excessive exercise.
