    The plot of Shauna Reid s book sounds almost like a chick lit bookgirl goes on weight loss plan looking for self worth and conveniently finds a tender and caring Scottish man to sweep her off her feet who loves her just as she is There are definitely aspects of Dietgirl that are Bridget Jones esque, but knowing that it is a true story makes the book so muchmeaning

    While I certainly acknowledge what others have said, as far as Shauna only recognizing her potential and finding self acceptance once she favoured the number on the scale, I still hold this as one of my favourite fat girl loses a bunch of weight and gets happy books Her sense of humour is really quite comedic, and I particularly LOLed so hard at the part where she cat

    Like many readers, I picked this book up in the hopes of getting some inspiration from Shauna s story It s hard not to be inspired by someone who lost so much weight the hard, old fashioned way through diet and exercise Shauna spent years and years, not weeks and months, to lose her weight, which feelsreal than what we so often see in the media In this blog turned book, S

    This is not the kind of book I normally read, but I was so unexpectedly moved that I have to review it here I usually hate memoirs but Shauna Reid is the most delightful person, so charming and funny and well intentioned that only a Scrooge would root against her I teared up multiple times and read favorite passages out to my boyfriend as I read, and as soon as I finished I l

    One of those I picked this up at exactly the right point in my life books Also one of the few blog book that is even better as a book than a blog books When I first picked it up, I skimmed a bit in the middle, a date with Gareth, and was thoroughly charmed I m glad I did that, because starting at the beginning when she was so filled with self loathing was harder to get through Bu

    I finished this book in one day, but was entertained the whole time The author writes well, and you feel like you re reading the private thoughts of a very articulate, very personable best friend, with all the anxieties and doubts and ups and downs those of us who have tried to lose weight have felt at one time or another No Earth shattering weight loss tips, just the steady day in,

    It is difficult reviewing this book because it is a memoir However, that does not negate the fact that I hated it I bought it thinking I would be inspired but it had the opposite effect Plus, I think it sends the wrong message to women Just because you are heavy does not mean you have to sit at home like a hermit binging on food all day I am overweight but I have friends, I travel, I swi

    I read this because it was recommended to by a friend It s one of the better books of this type that I ve read, and occasionally it does feel like she was in my head At other times I felt very disappointed that she seemed to be drinking the koolaid just a bit too much Good, not great, but certainly not bad, Shauna Reid writes an engaging book about weight, family and serendipity.

    This is the funniest book I have ever read Shauna s brutally honest without ever acknowledging how vulnerable she s being It was amazing to see how her confidence grew not just as she was inching closer to her goal weight, but as she pushed herself to go to the gym, out with friends, travel, or to the shops She did a great job at illustrating that her size and mood did not have direct positive c
