I felt sad at the end of the book when she didn't give us the true secret of getting and staying thin. Then I remembered this was a memoir - a story of her journey - not a self-help book and I became grateful for her honesty. Very well written. A story not only of a woman's battle with her weight, but with her mental health. A picture of the challenges of dealing with mental illness and how it is treated in children and adults. Moving. Worth reading again.
