    Get ready, get set, get healthy

    So many reasons I liked this book. The author offers small, easy steps I can take in order to move towards a healthier life without feeling overwhelmed. The book is laid out is an easy to read format with attention getting sections sprinkled throughout the chapters. These sections are noting additional information, motivating statements, good sound facts, and suggestions to make my steps easier and the life style changes more convenient. The “Success Stories”, which relate to the chapter’s main message, offer motivation and gave me the “yes, I can” drive.
    This book was more than I expected. It is obvious the author knows her stuff. After reading Healthy Tipping Point, I’m ready to start on the healthier path. This book is a wonderful gift I can give to friends.
