It Came Across My Desk (And I Loved It)

Let’s face it, we’re all tired of skinny experts who act like weight loss is so freaking easy. In her new book, Secrets of a Former Fat Girl, Lisa Delaney describes her lifelong struggles with weight-loss with heartbreaking honesty.

When I met writer Lisa Delaney, I assumed she’d always been a size 2, successful athlete. But her new book just came across my desk, and it turns out that for much of her life, she was Twinkie driven, shopping phobic, gym avoiding, self-doubting and 70 pounds overweight.

In Secrets of a Former Fat Girl, she lays it all out—the food sneaking, the shopping humiliation and more in heartbreaking detail (she’s so been there)—and then doesn’t get all preachy or pat about how to break the “fat girl mindset” and get what you want. Let’s face it, we’re all tired of skinny experts who act like weight loss is so freaking easy. At last, this book dares to get real—and ends up inspiring.
