What if Portia's set weight, her natural weight when eating and living as healthfully as possible, was 168 lbs? What if it was 200 lbs? 350? More? For so many women, that's the case. Plenty of women are both naturally fat AND healthy, but I don't know if Portia believes that. She's obviously still struggling. That's normal. I just wish that instead of ending her book the way she did, she had shown a little solidarity to other women out there - the ones who aren't lucky enough to have a socially acceptable set weight.
