Synopsis: A lifetime of trying to be perfect lands Lisa Whalen in the psych ward at age 29. Eating-disorder treatment sets her on a path toward health, but her progress stalls until she meets 10 special horses. They teach her to face her fears, trust her intuition, live in the moment, and love her body. A story of resilience, empowerment, and the transformative power of human-animal bonds, Stable Weight illustrates that what matters isn’t whether we fall, but that we rise.

I learned that flawed authenticity outranked false perfection.
Riding had pulled my self’s shards together and reset them. It continued healing me every day.
Slow down. Live in the moment. Stop anticipating and rushing toward the next.
