Overview

Can a woman who will you follow you anywhere if you promise her a hunk of chocolate pecan pie ever change her evil ways and find happiness as a gym rat? Can this same sugar-addicted woman find glory doing bicep curls and chomping down collard greens, with only the occasional breakdown over a crumb ring donut?

"Till We Eat Again: Confessions of a Diet Dropout," follows Judy Gruen's true adventures as she tries to lose fifteen measly pounds in time for a 20-year college reunion. And she pulls no punches, except during boxing class: Judy belly dances to the "camel," runs laps while an Army major blows his whistle at a fitness boot camp, and gets tangled in yoga positions so bizarre the paramedics need the "Jaws of Life" to get her out. She'll also try to figure out who's got the straight skinny on nutritional news, even as medical researchers conclude that even drinking too much water can kill you. After months of these and other indignities, she'll even earn a bookmark made of real paper for losing five pounds on Weight Watchers.

Will she meet her weight loss goal? (Hint: This book is non-fiction!) Turn each laugh-filled page and find out!

    Very Funny!

    I really enjoyed this book. It's very funny and very true. As someone who attended Weight Watchers, the descriptions of the meeting are true as ever. It's very hard to put the book down once you started reading it, so make sure you can manage with a little less sleep then usual. I also really enjoyed Judy's other book, 'Carpool Tunnel Syndrome: Motherhood As Shuttle Diplomacy' which is about the more humorous moments of raising a family.

    It Made My Life Easier!

    I bought this book for my wife, who has been trying to lose weight and build muscle, and was simply getting too serious/concerned/frustrated with the process. I wanted to find a book that would help her find the humor in the situation. We have always approached serious/heavy subjects with humor, and it's always helped us to cope and support each other. As a man -- and a husband -- I had to be REALLY CAREFUL in this area, and did not trust my own sense of humor to get me through alive... My wife really identified with the book, and began devloping a better sense of humor about the whole thing. This led to her getting more out of her diet changes and excercise -- she was having more fun with the whole process -- and took a lot of the pressure off me. I read some of the stories as well, so that I had some 'safe' material to contribute (rather than making my 'own' jokes and potentially providing her with rope to hang me!). So thank you, Judy, for understanding, and for sharing, and for giving me an easy way out of a situation every man dreads!
