5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a weight loss guide that is realistic and honest, January 9, 2009
This review is from: Finally Thin!: How I Lost More Than 200 Pounds and Kept Them Off--and How You Can, Too (Hardcover)
I picked up this book after seeing the cover; at the time I was just in the store to browse. I wasn't even looking for a weight loss book. I thumbed through it and after reading Kim's honest account of her struggles and her success, then, seeing all the hints, recipes and tools for support and success, I saw that it wasn't just a how-to book written by a muscle bound trainer. I bought it because I knew the recipes would be helpful, and now that I have read it and dog-eared too many pages to count, I am so glad I have it. I have struggled with weight loss & food 'issues' for almost 20 years, and Finally Thin just might be the inspiration and guidance that gets me over this frustration hump where I have felt my past futile efforts overwhelm me. I am tired of picking up books written by [well intended] trainers who just don't get the emotional component. Even the title conveys what the book addresses...finally, after all the frustrations, hopes, exercise classes, therapy sessions, dreams, efforts, diets.....thin! Bad habits take more than one try to kick. Reading this I felt hope and a strong sense of support, and that emotional component is huge.
