Overview


Have you ever told yourself that bingeing after 10 p.m. doesn't really count? You're not alone. Good intentions and logic fly out the window when you're hungry. Now, from the front lines of dieting hell, here are true stories to get you over dieting hurdles large and small. Funny, encouraging, and motivating, this book satisfies the dieter's appetite for distraction until they've reached their weight goal. Misery loves company and sometimes the only advice we'll take is from someone who has already stood in our shoes. Whether it is about giving up smoking, trying to lose weight, or having in-laws move in for a month, the Staying Sane series provides readers with just this kind of been-there, done-that commiseration. Each Staying Sane volume is filled with sometimes humorous (laughter is the best medicine, after all!), sometimes inspiring but always sanity-saving success stories of how other people have overcome obstacles or have risen above the situations in question. Practical tips and coping strategies lighten the reader's load throughout. Bibliotherapy of the first order, the Staying Sane guides will support beleaguered readers as they strive to persevere through the duration of their particular challenge.

Dieting has got to be one of the most stressful times one has to endure. This collection of sassy, funny and true to life stories, complete with practical advice is well worth the price of admission. Not only will you get some great chuckles but you will find out how so many other dieters have overcome their own obstacles and reached their goal weight. Kudos to Brodowsky & Fazio for this great book.
