I do not watch TV, so I was not familiar with her work on "The Starting Over House" until I read this book. I had caught the show once or twice while traveling, so I quickly made the connection between the life coach I'd seen, and the author. Rhonda writes in a personal, easy-to-read style that makes her readers feel like she's sitting down with them over a skinny latte at the local Starbucks. She puts up no pretensions, and readily shares her less-than-glamorous personal history and struggles. ...more

I loved this book. The author is very relatable and it feels like you're talking to your best friend when you read it. Some of the advice is not new, however, a lot of points get through to you and also the written exercises are effective. I met the author and her books reflect her relatable, honest and heart-warming personality! I can't wait to read her other books.

I read this book with a group of women, and we discussed each chapter a week at a time. I highly recommend approaching the book this way, as there are a number of practical suggestions in the book that are worth trying for a week, and then discussing to see what worked and what didn't.

I don't think this is a book you can sit down and read in one fell swoop and expect to get results. It's one that takes time and commitment, which I understand isn't for everyone. But I've reaped a lot of rewards

Recommends it for: readers who want a healthier body image and a healthier body
Rhonda Britten was a life coach on the reality TV series Starting Over during the time this book was written and published. She has written several other books beginning with Fearless Living in 2001. In Do I Look Fat in This?, Britten covers the issue of body image and weight. The book is part memoir, part self-help.

I liked that this is a book about processes, not results.

The writing isn't the best, but the ideas are strong. It's not "here are the right things to do to get your body beautiful" it's "here are the right things to do to treat your body the right way. don't abuse your body because it has x and not y, and find a b and c ways to love it."

Everyone has body image issues and this book is a great start at understanding yours and taking the first steps to healing the negative attitudes towards our bodies that hold us back and hinder our happiness.

Self help book that was almost inspired. Written by “Starting Over” lady which was interesting to find out. Did it help me get over my body issues? No. Nothing really new in this book.

It referenced her now cancelled talk show too much to be effective for me, but others might benefit from the message.
