Compare “insatiable” to “my mad fat diary”. Both main characters begin as fat teens, feeling socially isolated. Both end up living out some of the dreams, including romantic ones. What differs is the in between. While Patty loses weight, though not via her own agency (insert eye roll), Rae does NOT lose weight, but through therapy and personal action, makes healthy changes to how she intersects with everyone in her life, from family to friends.
Ttld; MMFD is awesome.
