This is a simple, straightforward, easy-to-relate-to book with lots of great advice for helping you stay on your weight loss plan. It doesn't address the diet plan itself. We all know what we need to do: eat smaller portions, cut down on sweets, eat more fiber, drink more water, etc., but we have to be motivated to do these things on a regular basis. I like the format of this book, i.e. short daily "lessons" that are quick to read and straight to the point. The author gives advice that I have ne ...more
I was going along so well in this book until she suggested that I buy myself a greeting card, write myself a note, and pretend it was from someone else. Seriously? Because I need to make myself feel more of a loser?
This book is not a "diet" book but rather a...homework book? A series of mental exercises to do on a daily basis (a 100 of them) while you loose weight.

I'm not sure if this is a case of a book failing a reader so much as it's a case of the reader failing the book. For example:

Day 1 - Fill in the blanks. I used to _____ (fill in your old behavior) but now I ______ (write in your new ending.)

My sentence: I used to eat delicious food but now I don't.

I'm underwhelmed.
This book has some good ideas for diet motivation and inspiration, many of them revolving around keeping notes in a journal. There are assignments for each of 100 days. I read this book straight through, but I might considering purchasing it in the future and working on each assignment, one day at a time.
I don't know if I will ever make it all the way through this book, but the daily motivations I have read have been helpful. I am slowly developing my own diet that seems healthful to me.
Several good ideas; however, I have a quarrel with her organization of the tips. I read the whole book in a week and will incorporate some of her suggestions.
Although I liked a lot of her ideas, this book could have been condensed into a smaller book and it would have kept my interest a little better.
Gives daily tips and exercises meant to make you more aware of healthy eating habits and attitudes.
Well written, concise useful tool toward healthier living!

Highly recommended! Lots of great motivation here!

“Ambivalence is one of the biggest enemies of change. If you aren't sure that you really want to take action on something such as your weight, ambivalence will usually win.” 6 likes
“Starting today, instead of saying "I have to" when discussing your actions or goals, substitute the words "I choose to." Now the phrase "I have to go to work" becomes "I choose to go to work." And "I have to lose weight" becomes "I choose to lose weight." Saying "I choose to" puts you in charge and affirms that you want to see results.” 6 likes
