MY THOUGHTS
LOVED IT

In my never ending goal to lose five pounds, I thought I would give this a try.  The book contains easy to understand theories on why weight loss doesn't always work and how to avoid the pitfalls.  There are also easy to follow recipes geared toward helping your body lose weight.  I found the book to be inspirational and the information seems really helpful.  So far I have lost two pounds and hope to lose the hardest of the hard in the last three!
