An inspiring account of one woman's mission to lose six dress sizes and change her life for good

For Lisa Delaney, being a 'fat girl' wasn't just a matter of weight, it was a state of mind. At one hundred eighty-five pounds, she was despondent over diets that never worked and disappointed by her dull job and lack of a love life-until a late-night epiphany involving a half-gallon of ice cream convinced her that becoming a former fat girl, in body and spirit, was the key to creating a life she truly loved.

Today, seventy pounds lighter, Lisa is a successful writer at a national magazine. She is married to a man she loves. And she wears a size two.

Eye-opening, accessible, and filled with practical advice, this book reveals the seven secrets of Delaney's success, and explores how shifting from 'wannabe Former Fat Girl' to actual Former Fat Girl is as much about seeing yourself as a confident, desirable woman as it is about achieving an ideal weight.
