I've read Jen's blog and decided to give her book's a try. As someone who has been on a quest over the past year to come to terms with her own weight issues, I decided to start with this book. It's not a weight loss guide, by any means, but more like a friend who gets what the whole process is like. It's written in a funny, sardonic voice that I adored and I couldn't help but relate to her woes of working out, the ability to talk yourself into "one little cheat" and realizing that most of the diets out there want you to be afraid of food for no good reason.

Even if you don't think you can relate on the weight loss/food side of things, I still recommend this book for the funny conversations she has with her friends and husband. I'm definitely picking up her other book.
