I just finished reading 100 Pound Loser by the adorable (and svelt!) Jessica Heights.
Let me tell you, if you’re thinking of getting fit or losing weight in the new year, this is about as timely and delightful a read as you could find on the subject.
Here’s what I loved about the book:
- It’s short. Can you say “Read it in one sitting”? I can. That always gives me a bit of a high.
- It’s hilarious. Seriously. I could not wait to get my hands on this book. I adore Jessica’s writing style. A whole book by her? Yes, please!
- It gets to the heart of body image and weight loss quickly (did I mention it was a short book?) and delightfully (did I mention it was funny?)
- It’s written by a mom of little ones, to us moms of little ones. Jessica’s been there—is there! I’ve come to notice ‘relate-ability’ to be a halmark of the books that have the most positive impact on me.
So, if you’re a mom of littles who wants to lose weight, this is a GOOD READ for you. It will help you get the proper perspective on your beautiful body while inspiring you to do the work you need to to get back in shape. I mean, if Jessica can do it, with 4 kids in tow AND fibromialgia, I think you and I have a chance, don’t you?
Jessica’s methods of weight loss may be different than mine (I recommend eating fat to lose fat) but her book still gave me inspiration and that extra kick in the pants I needed to start my ‘get fit’ routine in the New Year.
Or purchase 100 Pound Loser: How I Ate What I Wanted, Had Four Babies, & Still Took Control Of My Weight – And You Can Too! for your Kindle. (I read it on the Kindle App on my Android!)
