By the time her fortieth birthday loomed, Joanne Fedler was married with two kids, had immigrated from the land of her birth and picked up plenty of baggage along the path. A photograph of herself in a bikini on her son's fifth birthday led her to take stock of her life. Armed only with the knowledge that she did not want to be 'fat and forty', Joanne went to see 'The Food Fascist, a dictatorial dietician, who scared her into changing her relationship with food. On her strict new eating plan, Joanne began to discover that it wasn't only kilos she needed to lose, but the weight of fear, guilt and anxiety she was lugging around in her heart. In making friends with hunger and losing a few pounds along the way, Joanne found greater peace, not only with her body, but with herself, her life and her adopted country. What began as a mission to get back into a bikini became a journey towards self-acceptance.
