This riveting peak behind the changing room door of a beauty-obsessed culture reveals what women really think about their bodies. Typically dressed in no more than a towel, Leslie spent five years interviewing women of all ages, shapes and sizes about what goes into shaping not just their bodies but their body image: the result is a hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, all-too-revealing testament that we women are our own worst critics - and our self-criticisms are highlighted under the changing room's fluorescent lights. Through deliciously confiding stories from women of all shapes and sizes (coupled with advice from the experts), Leslie takes readers on a journey of women's obsessions with our bodies, both good and bad. From compulsive workouts to relaxing saunas, from bikini waxing to dates with the scales, she confirms that society's pressures to look beautiful and be scarily thin, are writ small in our health clubs. But she also finds in this culture of constant comparison plenty of women who've put the scales in their place, have stopped the cycle of self-loathing, and have set workout goals that are - surprise! - attainable! Blending expert opinion with wonderfully intimate, often laugh-out-loud confidences, "Locker Room Diaries" will inspire anyone who knows the highs of exercise, to leave the lows of self-esteem behind, and to step off the scales once and for all!
