I thought I would enjoy this book. It started out wonderful. The preview was witty and fun.

Lucy is 5'7 and 100lbs over weight? What does that mean? The weight range for a female who is that tall (that is tall because the avg height for a female in the US is 5' 3") is 127 to 158lbs. Which means Lucy can be anywhere from 227 to 258lbs. Now if she is 227 she really might be only 60lbs overweight not 100.

The second problem I had was when they were doing Lucy's fitness eval. It feels like the author didn't even bother with even asking a physical trainer what they do when they do an eval. They don't put people in a tank of water to see how much of a person's weight is fat. All the need to do is step on a special scale that computes that.

I couldn't even finish the story. I was 9% in and gave up. I returned it on Amazon.
