NY Times Going to the Fat Farm with Dad

Interesting article today in the Times about a woman who went to Duke with her Dad for “fat camp.” I love reading about the many different perspectives of how people have dealt with their weight issues. It goes to show that we all handle it in a very different way and on very different levels but that we all have different ways that work for us and that is just fine!

More importantly I love that it was about her Dad because it got me excited about a part of my book my editor and I were discussing the other day about when my Dad and I realized that it was never about the weight. Powerful stuff that I think will help a lot of parents and children who struggle with that weight issue, talking about it and dealing with it.  The fact that we faced it and talked through it before he died was one of the best things we ever did!
