Of course my boss did not gift me with gastric bypass surgery for a Christmas bonus--but that is what happens to Alexis! This book hits all the emotional gamuts that can go with a total change in your appearance. To have that happen when you are in your 50's--well--that is really life changing.
You will cry and be happy for Alexis as she struggles to reinvent her entire self and deal with what made her so over weight to begin with!
I would personally like to thank Dianne for NOT putting any recipes in this one that I normally can only dream of indulging in.
After receiving a most unusual Christmas gift, Alexis begins a journey that will keep readers, especially those with an interest in the experiences of mature people, entertained and turning pages. It's one part romance, one part personal growth, and all parts fun as we follow Alexis and cheer her on.
A strong recommended read and I'm looking forward to Book 2 in this great new series.
“Alexis” was no exception. Drawn in from the start, I immediately felt an empathy for the main protagonist, with her history of overeating to quell her sad childhood angst, her insecurity about making big changes, and the complications incurred when her realistic craving for food cropped up just when she thought she had won that particular battle.
Besides the storytelling, I also very much enjoyed the medical descriptions of “stomach stapling”—the physicality of its procedure, its step-by-step recovery, and the necessary psychological help involved. All I can say is, bravo to this author for starting a series for us mature, not-so-slim audience members! Highly recommend!
This book brought back a lot of memories, and now I’m jonesing for a Carol Burnett Show fix. I might have to go buy the series on dvd.
Whether you were a fan of this show or not, or even if you’ve never seen it (why haven’t you?) this book is quite entertaining. I loved it, and would recommend it 100%
