Overview

The Me I Knew I Could Be: One Woman's Journey from 292 Pounds, to Peace, Happiness, and Healthy Living by Crystal Phillips

Six years ago, Crystal Phillips was miserable, unhappily married, and suicidal. At 292 pounds, it seemed as though her life was over and that there was no way to climb out of the hopelessness. Through food, she was slowly killing herself. But the death of Crystal's beloved brother made her realize several powerful things: life is too precious to waste, and our purpose here is to live as fully and as we can. Through this realization, Crystal found within herself the strength to make a change.

In The Me I Knew I Could Be, you will discover:
*The power of journaling
*How to be prepared for emotional setbacks
*How to eat well and take care of yourself without deprivation
*Delicious recipes for favorite comfort foods and how to make them light and healthy
*Two weeks of sample menus
*Empowering stories of other women who lost weight in Crystal's Through Thick and Thin Workshop.
*How to form your own fitness woprkshop

The Me I Knew I Could Be is both the inspiring personal story of Crystal's weight loss and a practical, helpful, usable guide for anyone who wants to lose weight, get healthy, and embrace life.

Ms. Phillips was very inspiring. Now I have attempted to read multiple weight loss books and was - UNSUCCESSFUL... but her incorporation of personal experiences made the book very relatable. Even more, it was great the tips about the WAR bag, exercise tips, and even her bragging about how good she felt at the end... overall a good read.

I could totally relate to Christal's story as I too have dealt with some of the same issues she has. This book is very well written and wonderfully inspirational.

I can't believe someone finally wrote a book about weightloss that I can relate to. This book puts everything on the table. There is are no special tricks to do or things to buy. She points out the mind games we play. She made me realize that I have the power and key to change my life, but I have to get to the root of my eating problem in order to make that change!
