This book touches on a subject that is very personal to me, obesity. If you have ever fought your weight, fought with an addiction to food and just all out despised yourself because of you dress or pants size then you need to read this book.
This is not an erotic tale about the stick skinny, perfect woman getting the hot rocker. This is a woman who is dealing with an addiction to food. Food addiction is so often overlooked because people think that you can just stop eating, as with every other addiction out there, it is not that easy. When you are a food addict it is the same as an alcoholic or drug addict the only difference is that food is required to live and surrounds us everyday!
Kristen is morbidly obese ( I hate that term). To the point that her body size is killing her. She has battled for years to fight the addiction to food and it works for a while but then she fails. Now in a last ditch effort she joins a rehab in-patient program.
Sean is a recovering drug addict who need just a little more help, he also famous. He is someone who knows what is like to be obese but traded one addiction for another.
Kristen and Sean are somewhat unbelievable. I struggled with the attraction because when you are fat, no matter how beautiful you are on the inside and out, people only see the fat. It is a sweet story.
A story of struggle and fight. It is inspiring to anyone fighting against food or trying to maintain the fight against food.
When you fight against the person you see in the mirror, when you know there is a wonderful person inside. Maybe just maybe you can see the Thin Person Inside.
I guess the hardest part for me to suspend disbelief over was that they folks in her support group were so accepting. That's not a reflection on the story, either. That's on me.
The characters are heartfelt and this book is well worth reading. I highly recommend it.
I'm trying to write this without spoilers. If I have any criticism, is that the issue with Kristen's daughter seemed to be solved far more easily than the difficulties faced by other characters. For that, I would give it 4.5 stars, but I'm rounding up.
I knew this was a book about recovery just a different recovery than have knowledge. For anyone who has served in the armed forces deserves special treatment. These people have given up so much to help keep our nation free. I am not a veteran but I have some in my family and know so many veterans. Daily I speak to one man that is still serving. I hug him and thank him for his duty to keep me free.
When I read the blurb of this story I knew it would be dealing with veterans and their addiction. The addiction deals with anything from food to drugs or alcohol. This book really hit home for me. Someone who has always struggled with maintaining a certain weight. Knowing that no matter what it will be a battle. I quickly connected with Kristen. She showed so much strength though believed herself to be weak.
I was not fond of Sean. His character did not ring true to be at the beginning then some of his actions felt forced. But the kindness and empathy he showed Kristen really struck me as someone who did not see weight, they saw who the person is on the inside because the outside does not matter.
I do not normally give a book 5 stars but this book deserve that and more. It deals with the daily struggles veterans face. Struggles that all have faced but after seeing war these people have so much more to face.
The bunnies and I highly recommend this book.
