story of a young woman who defeated her demons and conquered her cravings to become a weight loss superhero to inspire us all 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 correlation, and instead her happiness stemmed from how she chose to perceive herself I would recom 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 correlation, and instead her happiness stemmed from how she chose to perceive herself I would recommend this book to anyone who s ever struggled with weight, depression, social anxiety, or just generally perceives themselves as an awkward troll that doesn t fit into society I ve never written a review, and I m not sure how to end this, but I suppose that s it This is a story of a weight loss journey, from 2001 to 2007, of an Australian girl in her early 20s who gets tired of her excess weight 150 kg and decides to lose it Along the way she also improves her confidence, and finds love and adventure There is a photo part in the middle of my book, and you can tell the differences clearly Many of the entries for this is in blog form also include current weight, weight lost, and weight to lose.She went from 150 kg to 79,8 kg at first with the help This is a story of a weight loss journey, from 2001 to 2007, of an Australian girl in her early 20s who

tell the differences clearly Many of the entries for this is in blog form also include current weight, weight lost, and weight to lose.She went from 150 kg to 79,8 kg at first with the help of Weight Watchers and SureSlim, but later finding the groove on her own, even with occasional relapses A few times there s also depression periods, but they are mainly at the first part of her journey She gets help from good people, including her sister Rhiannon, certain friends, and the at first sight real love, Gareth, who she triple marries in Las Vegas, Scotland, and Australia.It s easy to see things that sparked the gain parents relationship troubles, a certain comment, and unhelpful help from mother and easy to see all the mental and physical suffering she was in at the start breathlessness, chafing, eating fast and in secret, avoiding public, excuses, crying, obsessive food thinking, what ifs, too fat for , avoiding nakedness physical discomfort, food as comfort, shame, fear, worry I can relate to some, some seem so strange even though I understand why it happens, I have my own struggles in weightloss and self image too.Although she does lose the weight, slowly, another part in all of this is getting free from the mental thinking she had, which is stuck on a lot longer It was a very good idea to move to Scotland not only she found love, but the change also helped her get where she wanted, including mentally And the traveling was good for her too, though all the food sampling means that whatever is gained in weight must come off afterwards I do feel she will strategise it better in the future Her love of exercise develops quite quickly, so I cheered at that a lot, and by the end her thoughts on occasional treats are better.It s easy to find her site out there today, and she has kept her weight off well She still lives in Scotland with Gareth and a cat named Ziggy, and has been a work from home freelancer since c.2014.The book was quite funny sometimes, sometimes sad and frustrating, but it s nice to read a success story and see a good example of how one can turn things around for the better, no matter how long it takes This is a good inspiration book, and one might learn some tips from it Better than I thought, and a quick read 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 muchmeaningful The book is laid out like a diary, with most entries including the date of the author s weight loss journey and her cur The plot of Shauna Reid s book sounds almost

definitely aspects of Dietgirl that are Bridget Jones esque, but knowing that it is a true story makes the book so muchmeaningful The book is laid out like a diary, with most entries including the date of the author s weight loss journey and her current weight that week But what starts out as a book about weight loss becomes mucha story of how our past influences who we are, and ultimately, how we have to break free of the scars we bear from our childhood and take responsibility for our own happiness A great thing about this book is that it is an honest account of weight lossthe author doesn t just start losing weight and keep going until she s a supermodel She suffers setbacks along the way and is at times crippled by depression and self doubt But like the super heroine alter ego that she assumes to write her popular blog, the author takes her kryptonite in this case, chocolate in stride and fights back, saving herself in the process 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 catches Gareth with his bum out the window, tooting due to the curried lentils she d made for dinner earlier that evening I m not While I certainly acknowledge what others have said, as far as Shauna only recognizing her potential and finding self acceptance once she favoured

scene was too adorable not to bring a smile to my face I appreciate how far Shauna has come and how she took her diet as a serious life journey, one that took seven years to accomplish, rather than wham, bam, thank you, ma am like some diet books, where the chick loses 100 lbs in a year and we never hear the epilogue of whether she truly kept it off At least with Shauna, there is to show that she s still holding up as beautiful, inward and out
