I read this book in one sitting and it may be the best book on weight loss I have ever read, and believe you me, I've read a few of them, because of my general interest in health and wellness, and of course, how to get off those extra pounds that always seem to be following me around.

Anyway, Annie Acorn has shared her own experience and shares it with her readers in a simple, accessible, and no nonsense fashion and with a healthy serving of humor. She writes with the voice of a friend who wants to help and manages it beautifully.

Before I had finished reading the book, I had committed to two changes and honestly and truly have turned them into new habits, so in effect, a new way of living --- and the best part is --- it was and continues to be painless. Have just added a new change and it too has been easy to stick to. Read this book, but only if you want to see some success in your life.

I enjoyed reading this ebook. Not only can I relate to the ups and downs of dieting but I can definitely relate to the "tired older woman" part of the title. She gives me hope and some good ideas on how to create a plan that's right for me without the restriction and deprivation that dieting brings. It's written with a sense of humor and I would recommend this book to us older ladies who are tired of dieting and struggling to lose weight.

This book is the best weight loss book I have read. If I saw Annie in the street, I would want her to autograph my kindle. It's like a good friend (one with a sense of humour) telling me how she lost weight and kept it off. Its a personal success story, not from a Dietician. I needed motivation to start eating healthy again and lose weight. That's why I purchased this book. It has given me that motivation, some really good tips and great advice. I could relate to this book because of the title as I am an older woman but these great ideas of losing weight I will pass on to my 19 year old daughter. This book is for any aged person wanting to lose weight.

Remember in Jr. High...adding big font and lots of spacing to get a report to be the required page length? That is what this author did. Not much content and all is common sense. Eat more fruit & veggies. Drink more water. Switch to non- fat milk. Exercise. Allow yourself a splurge now and then. Yadda yadda. Don't waste your money on this booklet.

As a nutrition professor I was prepared to find dumbed down or inaccurate information on nutrition -- thankfully this was not the case. Ms. Acorn writes very well, she is convincing because she had a plan, it worked, it still works, and she's not dogmatic about it being the "only way to successful weightloss." She understands that losing weight is not the issue, rather keeping it off is. Her idea is to make small changes over time and once you adopt a change stick to it. The concept is a good one. My only issue with the book is that it's very short and although the "plan" is clear, it could benefit from more examples. This worked for her, but other people and plans that worked for them would really add to the book -- then it would work well for people who are not tired, people who are young -- actually anyone!

I thought this was going to be a book about weight loss. It's nothing of the kind. The author doesn't tell the reader one new thing that hasn't been out there a hundred times before. It's not even written in paragraphs, just listed sentences for the most part. Crazy. I kept wondering when the book was going to start. Then all of a sudden there was a story about a woman falling down an escalator. I kept reading thinking this was part of the weight loss book. But, no. It was simply the first chapter of some book the author was in the process of writing. I skipped ahead wondering what was going on, then came to ANOTHER first chapter of a different book the author was writing. WHAT??? Now I'm thinking this weight loss book was nothing but a scam! What she really was trying to do was put out an enticing title and funny picture that would draw readers in, then after a few pages put out the first chapters of her books she wants to sell. So her objective wasn't really to help you with losing weight, but actually to sell her books. SHAMEFUL!

This is the same lo-cal diet we've all seen in every possible incarnation for decades. If lo-cal was the answer, why are we getting fatter? Her adolescent writing style cannot conceal her insufferable smugness.
But there is one terrific tip, which is why I gave the book 2 stars. Here it is: Do Things Your Way. That IS helpful and worth considering. But don't waste your money (and the 12 minutes it takes to read the book).
Oh, and what in the world is a chapter from a novel doing at the end of a weight loss book???
Pass.

What this book achieves is to tire the reader! Absolutely nothing new and no exciting breakthroughs or insights. Anyone who is minimally into losing weight has been through all this a thousand times. Only the obvious and written in an insufferable cheerful bedside manner tone. Following Ms. Acorn's advice will certainly not hurt and is sure to help, but I'm sure you've heard it before!
