Fitness Friday (Special Sunday Edition): 100 Pound Loser {Review}

As someone who went from a size 16+ in 1999 to a size 4 by 2001, and have finally found a happy place as a 8-10, I'm always intrigued by others' weight loss stories.  Which is why I was so delighted to have the opportunity to review Jessica Heights's new book 100 Pound Loser.

Really? The world needs another weight loss book?


First, let me tell you what Jessica's ebook (available here ) is not: it is not a diet plan or an exercise regimen.

Instead, this is the book you should read first.

Jessica covers the basics of calorie watching and exercising, but not like a perfect, hard-bodied health and fitness guru.  Reading Jessica's book is like sitting down with a friend over a cup of coffee.  She's real, at times vulnerable, and as a result, highly motivating!

My favorite parts of 100 Pound Loser are the chapters on stumbling blocks (they happen to the best of us) and the extra challenges of maintaining a healthy lifestyle as a mom of little ones.  These are the energy shots of reality missing from so many nutrition and fitness guides.

If you're finding Fitness Friday because you're working out the details of a New Year's Resolution to lose weight, head on over to the book's dedicated page and check it out.  It's a super speedy read and personal pep rally!

What are your fitness goals for 2013?

  1. I have 100 lbs to loose and I've decided to do it. Except I don't know where to start really.
