did not like it

I wanted to like this book, I really did. I always was a fan of Valerie Bertinelli so I was sure I would like her book. Honestly it is one of the worst books I have ever read.
It reads like a high school diary. Bertinelli spends most of the book name dropping and blaming everyone she can for her feelings and her overeating. Her experience with the Jenny Craig program is saved for the very end and is incredibly vague. She went on the program and with seemingly no big hurdles or stumbling blocks loses the weight. So does her boyfriend! So does her mother! No mention though of her son's obvious weight problem. This book is not insightful or insprirational it is published to make money off the Bertinelli/ Van Halen / Jenny Craig names and offers nothing worthwhile.

Lisa I am so glad that I'm not the only one who noticed that her son is pretty overweight and there is never any mention anywhere in either of her books.
