liked it

I definitely enjoyed this book. I liked how it had a bit of chick-lit aspects to it. I could relate to it in some ways because I used to be overweight myself. What i didn't like was that I felt Shauna never quite found a balance so that she could stay healthy and happy. It's completely normal for people to fly off the handle and gain a few pounds, but she does this several times. Even in the present day she has gained back about 50 lbs. It's just frustrating to read. Why should I look up to this woman? There are plenty of women like Shauna who have written memoirs and have been able to keep the weight off. She just never seems to really become that superhero the reader wants her to become. The ending of the book is great, but it's definitely not the end of her weight troubles. I really hope she does eventually find a balance one day.
