MS took care of that and in my recovery, I lost considerable weight. People treated me differently and in a sense, I became a different person.

Overview

This story is about fat, being fat and living fat. It is very timely. Over the years, I had become plump, a busy mother who had little time for taking care of myself. MS took care of that and in my recovery, I lost considerable weight. People treated me differently and in a sense, I became a different person. In Leaner, I take my heroine on this journey where she not only loses weight, but learns much about herself, and with this more empowered place, changes her life for the better. In the background is a town that had lived fat, but with the closing of the main business, now has to cut back, become leaner. Again, it is a test of character, as we are seeing now in our times, how people confront changing circumstances, most notably, our leaner times.

Meet the Author

Ann D. Sawyer grew up in Western New York State, and went on to get a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at the University of Michigan and a Master’s Degree in Social Work at the University of Chicago. From early on, people and their stories have fascinated Ann.
Ann is married with three grown children with her husband, Steve. Throughout her life, she has pursued a career of helping people, mostly as a psychotherapist and also as a college instructor.
Multiple Sclerosis sidelined Ann to full disability. Not willing to accept that fate, Ann researched until she found all the keys to reach a full recovery, thanks to the efforts of MS pioneers who found a way to health from disabling MS. The book, The MS Recovery Diet with Judith E. Bachrach resulted as a way to help others find recovery from the dread disease. A bout with breast cancer and full recovery from that serious disease followed.
During her illnesses and recoveries, Ann found joy in writing novels. These novels are now being offered on Kindle. Back in full health, Ann is now in a private psychotherapy practice, but along with that, she always finds time for her other passion, writing wonderful stories.
