Great book I just bought....

Postby talia11 » Mon Apr 16, 2007 7:26 pm

It is called the Fat Girl's Guide to Life by Wendy Shanker. It si so much fun and puts a good perspective on the whole 'fat' issue we all deal with......

Here is a little blurb:

Whether you’re overweight or over dieting, Wendy Shanker and The Fat Girl’s Guide to Life will help you drop insecurity instead of pounds.

Wendy Shanker is a fat, healthy, beautiful girl who has simply had enough. Enough of family, friends, co-workers, women’s magazines, even strangers on the street, all trying (and failing) to make her thin. She finally decided, “If I can’t take it off, I’m going take it on.”

With a mandate to change the world—and the energy to do it—Wendy shows how media madness, corporate greed, and even the most well-intentioned loved ones prey on our shrink-to-fit minds, if not our shrink-to-fit bodies. She invites people of all sizes, shapes, and dissatisfactions to trade self-loathing for self-tolerance, celebrity worship for reality reverence, and a carb-free life for a guilt-free Krispy Kreme donut.

Wendy explores dieting debacles, full-figured fashions, and feminist feelings while guiding you through exercise clubs, doctor’s offices, shopping malls, and even the bedroom. She believes that you can be fit and fat, even as the weight loss industry conspires to make you think otherwise. The Fat Girl’s Guide To Life asks you to step off the scale and weigh the issues for yourself.

here's a good tip:

when you are out with some one and your having some cake or something naughty but so lucious to eat.

Rule 1. Have a mouthful and saver the flavour, really taste the flavours on your tongue.

Rule 2. Have a second Mouthful to curb that craving.

Rule 3. pass the cake (naughty food) to, husband, friend etc..
and as the old saying goes... Let THEM eat cake. litteraly :D
