My review:

I think this book is a must have for anyone had struggled, is struggling or will struggled with weight. It is very thought provoking.

Myself, I am overweight. I have an underactive thyroid, which makes it very hard for me to lose weight. No matter how much I exercise, I can’t lose it. Not because I am lazy….its because my body isn’t letting me. Before my thyroid issues, which started when I was pregnant with Z, I was a size 5. Now, I am a size 16.

So when I read this book, I had tears in my eyes during some of the stories. I could relate on so many levels to the pain those people were going through.

Will I reccomend this book to family and friends? Yes

Will I read it again? Yes

Now onto the Amazon links. Please remember, prices on Amazon can and will change.

If you do order….I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
