What an INSPIRATION!!! This is a must read book for anyone thinking about working in the fashion industry, being a model, going on a diet – or just if you’re not 100% happy with your looks.
Renn is an absolute star, when you read back through her history and hear of everything she has gone through, she truly is a fighter – someone who I look up to and think, I wish I could do something as good as her someday!! Because whether she thinks so or not, I think she has made a great change in the industry.. yes it is a one that’s just beginning but she worked hard to not only change the industry perception of plus size models but also to make herself healthy, heal her problems and turn herself into a women that is happy with her image and the person she has become.
The media portrays this ‘ideal’ of perfection and sells not only the look but also the lives of the models… so many young girls want to be a model, and nobody actually takes into consideration that it might not be all it’s cracked up to be! From working in the industry I knew it wasn’t a Cinderella story but Renn’s account opened my eyes – it’s NOTHING like the fairytale, particularly if like Renn your DNA doesn’t do size 0!
For anyone attempting a diet, especially a quick weight loss one – please, I beg you read this book first. Life shouldn’t be about watching what we put in our mouths every 10 seconds, it should be a joy, fun, as for all we know we’re only here once! Why waste it contemplating on whether there are more calories in a diet coke or a stick of sugar-free gum! Take a note from Renn and embrace the size you’re meant to be!
