Inch by Inch tells the story of one woman’s 50-year struggle to feel at home within her skin. Childhood sexual abuse confined Monique to a body controlled by others. After decades of trying to flee from herself, Monique tipped the scales at 200kg. She was grinding to a halt, immobilized by the labor of living.
Faced with the prospect of life in a wheelchair, she chose to find her feet. Losing two-thirds of her weight - inch by inch - was hard work. But as she embraced the risks and costs of change, she gained momentum, reclaiming mobility, health, a lightness of being, and joy.
Monique’s journey from morbid obesity to living health has also been a trek from self-hatred and shame toward self-respect and freedom. The audiobook also contains full-length album of songs by the author. Inch by Inch is the third title in Monique Lisbon’s evolving story of hope, following on from her previous two books/CDs: Fragments of Home: Piecing Life Together after Childhood Sexual Abuse and Keeping Mum: The Silent Cost of Surviving Childhood Sexual Abuse.
