I loved Carnie's "voice" in this book. Down to earth and friendly, I felt I was sitting across the sofa, talking to an old friend. Some of the things she said made me giggle because I could hear MYSELF saying the exact same things! Even though Carnie has gained back half of the weight she originally shed, I still think she is a wonderful role model for women everywhere.
Good read. I read it back when I was thinking of having gastric bypass surgery. I went on to have the surgery, but not because of the book. The book was just part of my research.
Written in a conversational method. Easy to read and understand. A good choice for anyone considering weight loss surgery. Carnie takes you through her own personal journey without sugar-coating anything. She shares the good, the bad, and the ugly. This book discusses both the emotional and physical symptoms of obesity and weight loss surgery.
