Summary "In [this book], Yvonne Castañeda shares vibrant stories of her childhood growing up in Miami as the daughter of humble immigrants from Mexico and Cuba ... and how she came to develop an unhealthy relationship with food. Plagued by doubt and low self-esteem, Yvonne begins a vicious cycle of weight gain and loss, and a reliance on dangerous coping mechanisms. Ultimately, sage advice from her dear abuela gives Yvonne to a realization that shifts her perspective of herself and the purpose of her life, providing a foundation for inner peace, and la solución to her past struggles"--Back cover.
