it was ok

Mediocre in terms of weight loss memoirs (of which I have read a good number). Lesson: diet, exercise, and moderation are essential to lose half your body mass. This book was funny at times but man is the author really self-confident and narcissistic. ...There were too many "I'm so hot now" and "Man, I look good" and references to people's positive reactions to her and to her stopping to look in every mirror she sees for my taste. I'm not taking away her entitlement to these feelings, as they are deserved--she worked hard to get where she is now--but it was still annoying to keep getting hit over the head with it.
