It Was Me All Along by Andie Mitchell
It Was Me All Along was by far one of the best memoirs I have ever read. Andie Mitchell is a food blogger, who did not always have a healthy relationship with food. In this painfully honest book, Andie chronicles her battle with food addiction from her very sad childhood to adulthood. As a child, Andie finds comfort in food. She battles obesity through countless diets. Weight Watchers, studying abroad, and becoming a production assistant in the film industry all help her lose 138 pounds. Through all her weight woes, her college boyfriend, Daniel, is there. Andie's story made me cry. In the end, she ends her romantic relationship with Daniel and her emotional relationship with food. Andie has a wonderful attitude and realizes the journey is one of self acceptance.
