On their lifelong quest to lose weight, Suzanne, Jennifer and Amy Barnett, three delightful sisters from Tennessee, have tried every popular diet. They've busted sugar, cut carbs, flushed fat, counted calories, and gorged on grapefruit. They kept hitting roadblocks on the road to skinny until they realized that what they needed didn't come in a magic pill but in one another.
They started www.3fatchicks.com as a way to track their weight-loss progress and found a community of dieters who were also at war with their waistlines and ready to support and encourage them every step of the way. Join the ride as Suzanne, Jennifer and Amy gather up chicks from around the world--from stay-at-home moms to biker-chicks, to sweet-sixteens to high-powered executives--to share their ups and downs of dieting. Here's what some of them had to say:
From the bedroom:
"Has anyone else noticed a low-carb sex surge? Since I started on Atkins two months ago, my sex drive has gone through the roof, and I have much stronger orgasms!" -Lustful in Louisiana
From the bank:
"If I continue with the LA Weight Loss Plan, I'm going to have to tap into my kids' college fund to pay for the LA Lites bars! Are there any cheaper options?" -Gina Going for Broke
From the gym:
"I'm on the Total Body Makeover plan, but the word aerobics gives me traumatic flashbacks to the 80s, and I get visions of pink tights and frantic dance movements in time to the soundtrack of Footloose. Can I lose weight without relieving these unpleasant memories?" -Not so Jane Fonda
