Description

Tania Roxborogh, a successful writer and teacher, had struggled with a serious weight problem since she was a teenager. Her husband and children tried to protect her from the daily humiliations suffered by the very fat but her spiralling weight gain was the source of despair and embarrassment. A degrading experience during an overseas holiday finally convinced Tania to make a life-altering decision. In just one year she lost half her body weight and in the process transformed her life. Fat Like me exposes the inner hell of being obese - a story that will shock and inspire you.
