Read in January, 2009

This was a book club pick, and I think everyone in the group who has read it so far has been disappointed. It is essays on various weight-loss/self-esteem topics from a number of women who lost a significant amount of weight. While I related to some of the stories, more often, I was depressed by the emotional abuse so many of these women suffered at the hands of "loved ones." I also found the stories to be repetitious. I think putting the identifying information about the contributors at the beginning, and editing out some of the essays (does every person have to write on EVERY subject?) would have made this a better book.
