At the age of 36 I was over 225 pounds when I decided I needed to lose weight. I really had no idea how to do it so I just made sure I did not eat every single thing I wanted, and tried to get some exercise. As I changed my lifestyle the weight began to come off and over five years I lost 100 pounds. As I went through this process I noticed there was a lot of things I hated. I found myself not nearly as happy as I thought I would be about losing weight so I began to look at those things I hated in a more positive light. In the end I created a list of 100 things I loved, and hated about losing 100 pounds. I have been able to list these things and add commentary to each one of those things. Humor has always been a coping mechanism for me and this book is a great example of how I approach just about everything in life. Good, and bad.

She takes one day at a time, and has been known to have several months of bad eating at a time, but has been able to keep her weight under control by her own standards. As the 100 goal line was approaching she felt a deep need to share her thoughts with others who may be experiencing the same things. She enjoys spending time with her family, learning new things, and eating cupcakes.

100 Things I Love And Hate About Losing 100 LBS! is Angela's story of everything she went through to lost 100 pounds. This book is written like a letter to her former self and everyone around her that got her to this point in her life. With paragraphs of what she loves and hates about that particular thing from family, co-workers and food itself, it gives a deeper picture of why she was able to gain the weight in the first place to being able to be a someone that she dreamed of being. This is a extremely short book but if you are overweight and know what it's like to gain weight, i would highly suggest you read this book. Being overweight myself, I get what she went through from people making fun of you for being a certain size and pretty much everything she wrote was about 90 percent true for me. I think this would be a great motivation book for overweight people that if you want it bad enough you will lose the weight and be the person that was always there inside just waiting to come out and shine. Thank You to Angela Hartshorn for telling your story to motivate other people to do the same!! I received this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
