Some of the stories were simpler--basic stuff about moms who read to their children, passed on their love of poetry, or helped a young son learn to ride his bike. They're pleasant stories but not all the kind that really get the tear ducts operating or the heart singing.
There was one story similar to the kind I was hoping for--a mom's obsession with the clothes she felt her daughter should be wearing. This was fairly amusing. I had a mom who was obsessed with my hair, makeup, and clothing and so I do long for more stories about interfering moms--so-called Jewish moms--but of all nationalities. But this type of story is meant for a different type of book. If you buy chicken soup, you have to expect sweetness. The bottom line here is love. The moms here loved their children, showing it in a myriad of ways. A pleasant book which sometimes soars to great heights when you try to imagine moms with great physical challenges who still manage to make their children priorities.
But some of the authors do start out as morbidly-obese people and have dramatic weight losses. Yet not all of the authors have big accomplishments to report. Some are just starting to change their ways. One woman reported a loss of five pounds. So it's not all daunting. I love the stories of how the authors put on the weight--the types of foods they were binging on. It's enjoyable reading--lots of honesty which is missing sometimes in some weight loss memoirs. Honesty and humor I would say are part of all the stories.
A different sort of chicken soup but quite inspirational. I'd say that perhaps it does help to be at a point in your life where you're feeling motivated to begin and then the authors will give you the push you need. I know that I'm not always in the mood for reading inspirational weight-loss stories. It happens that I'm in that mind-set right now where I can handle a book about the battle of the bulge without wanting to scream.
For he will command his angels concerning you, to guard you in all your ways. Psalm 91:11. Perhaps meeting angels is not so strange at all, even if it doesn't say whether they'll actually be visible at times or not.
In exchange for an honest review Shelton Interactive and Simon and Shuster Inc. provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.
