Top Customer Reviews
This collection of 101 weight loss success stories shows the myriad ways a person can lose weight, get fit and eat healthy. Cooking light at home, eating wisely at restaurants, working out at home, at the gym, outdoors, using DVDs, TV shows, machines, weights, resistance bands, or just strapping on plain old running shoes -- the everyday people in this book succeeded.
Not only are the stories inspirational, but they contain loads of practical tips and specifics on how each writer did it. I especially liked the story from the rabbi who found success on a diet of Heinz vegetarian baked beans! And the woman who lied -- very creatively -- in her very first food journal in seventh grade.
If your New Years resolution is to lose weight, get fit, or just plain live more healthfully, this is a good book for you. You can read just one story a day and it'll take you into April, by which time you'll be a success story yourself!

As you can see, there's a pretty broad range of topics, and as I mentioned before, the stories are short, with most being around 4 or so pages each. I liked this, because I have kind of a hectic schedule most days, and don't get much time to sit around reading inspirational books. However with this book, you can read a couple of the stories in just a few minutes, and then take away some great messages to think about for the rest of the day. So if you're looking for a few quick words of inspiration now and then, I highly recommend checking this one out.
This book is a gold mine for feline lovers. A well-established cat fanatic, I didn't think I could read anything that would make me love cats even more, yet this book did it. I was touched, moved, humored, and enamoured all over again with our furry feline friends.
A quick disclosure - I have 2 stories in the book. But since I don't make additional money if the book sells or not, I hope this review will be taken at face value. I would snatch this book off the shelves and give it to any cat lover, any day. I'm very pleased to be a part of such a fine collection.
but this book is by far my very favorite. I have read this book from cover to cover. The srories are amazing and I have cried through many of them because they are that touching and inspirational, if you need encouragement in your life, buy this book it will not only help you keep the faith but perhaps make you realize you are not alone in this world EVER God is always with you no matter what!
This book will make you life, cry and wonder in amazement at the bravery, intelligence, independence and sensitivity of man's other best friend, the cat!
I spent an entire day alternately laughing, crying and cuddling my kitties while reading this book. I could not put this amazing book down. It is a must read for anyone that has ever been owned by one of thse amazing creatures!
