Overview


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.

    Oh my gosh, I love this book. I have always worried about my weight but this book helped me to view myself in a whole new way. I read this and things just seem to fall in to place. For anyone that is body concious, you need to read this book!!! Every teen girl should also read this.

    Skip this one

    This book kinda sucked. Mostly, it is the author going on and on and on about her boring life. Being a chronic dieter myself, I was hoping to find out some useful info, or at the very least be able to read an interesting story about one woman's struggle to lose weight. This was neither. Her "advice" has been heard a dozen times before. If it was that easy to lose weight, we'd all have done it already. I wouldn't suggest this book.

    Lots of great info. Also very humorous. You will definitely relate to the things the author has gone through (or even done some of the same things yourself). It was just the inspiration and motivation I needed.

    I have read this book several times and I find it helpful, inspi

    I have read this book several times and I find it helpful, inspirational, and worthwhile each time. Lisa has lived life as a “fat girl” and understands what it is like to hid behind your weight or clothes. She gives you simple suggestions that you can do to get you through one day at a time. And day after day, pound after pound, inch after inch, you begin to see everything differently.

    I have bought copies of the book and secretly left it for individual who I feel are open to making a change in their life. I feel the critics who are overweight are just not in right place to start their journeys. Though, they may never get there, it is not the fault of the book. Each person has to take that first step in their own time. The road to losing weight and living healthier/happier is slow journey made up of small victories. My suggestion is to read the whole book all the way through. If it helps, congrats! If it doesn’t, give it to someone else who might be able to hear the message

    Boring

    I tried, really tried to like this book. My first problem was the generation gap-I couldn't relate to the author because I was probably 3 years old when she was a young adult. My other problem is the stories seemed to carry on and on and I'd just get bored. I got this book looking for inspiration for getting started but actually just found it in myself. You really do just need to eat less and walk more. It works.

    This book was very informative. It was not your average diet boo

    This book was very informative. It was not your average diet book with dieting tips, this book had the key secrets to getting to a healthy state and being comfortable in your own mind. the tips that Delany offers in this book can not only apply to weight loss, but also to general things in life. Her book is more about a mental journey than just focusing on the physical journey, and all the things you can't do when trying to get in shape. This book was an easy read. At some points, when Delany explains her life it became slightly tedious, but at the same time it helps the reader understand how she came up with the specific tips to becoming a former fat girl. I would highly recommend this book to anyone trying to make a legitimate life change, mentally and physically.
