A bookkeeper at a modeling agency Sabina, along with a raise and new responsibility in the office would attract envy and a label of "fat sausage". This would propel her to venture in not one but three weight-loss programs – Weight Watcher's, Jennie Craig, and Overeaters Anonymous. With immense internal battles she reflects: "I wanted to cry… To scream out… Anything to stop me from thinking about food, sugary Coke and the blasted chocolate bars that were in my drawer". Mama doesn't help matters by preparing tempting food while declaring Sabina will succumb to the apple strudel before the night is over.
At Weight Watchers she will meet Thomas "The Whale" who will play a gigantic role in her life in many ways. An Italian shrink, mama will hyperventilate at the thought of Sabina getting serious with a non-Jew. "She's killing me! She's going to church and she's running around with an Italian "
Sabina will not only endeavor to lose weight but be coerced into modeling plus clothes in an effort to land in important account at work.Read more ›
Do I Flaunt My Fat,
or Jump Off a Bridge?
By A. R. Alan
There are not too many people these days that are not watching their weight, to a lesser or greater degree. So, if you have found yourself in that situation and have to struggle, then this is the book for you! Really, anybody who enjoys laughing at great humor will find satisfaction reading this novel by A. R. Alan... Highly recommended!
I was once a guest on a cruise provided by a company that went out of business when the owner died. But during the times I had met many of the employees, I did notice something--many, and even most of them, were overweight. I discovered that the company president knew what I did also--overweight people are, generally, very good employees! So I wasn't surprised Mr, Diddles, head of the Diddles, Diddles and Maloney Modeling Agency had noticed Sabina's work ethic as bookkeeper.
While he awarded her with a raise, a new office and new furniture--was that enough for her to have to take on the problem that both Diddles Junior and Maloney were padding their expense accounts? Diddles Senior wanted to retire soon, but he knew that would not be possible unless he had somebody to take on management of his shares of the company. Sabina Sunday had the background and had proven her dedication...now it was up to her to see if she could deal with the financial management issues...
Sabina could handled those responsibilities alright, but having overheard Maloney call her a fat sausage had not only hurt her, it had made her mad--mad enough to finally take control of her own life.Read more ›
