As an overweight child, author Lori M. Sweeney was ridiculed and called a loser by children and even certain family members. Her weight increased over time and cruel treatment continued. She inherited new names, including the name, “Fatness.” A major car accident resulted in two knee surgeries and a broken heart. She could no longer keep up with her toddler or do simple things such as walk or climb stairs. She couldn’t find her size in a store and had to special order large, unflattering clothing.
With all the courage she could muster, Sweeney persevered. Since diets of the past didn’t work, she carefully devised a reasonable plan and created lists of situations that caused overeating and paired them with solutions. As a former chemist, Sweeney had the gift of formulations which carried over into the kitchen where she was able to concoct culinary creations low in fat and calories. Her tips and tricks led to a 125-pound weight loss.
In Goodbye Fatness, Hello Gorgeous! she tells her story and inspires others to get healthy and not suffer as she did at 272 pounds. This book is filled with tips, tricks, motivational techniques, and recipes. This collection helps you handle temptations, bad habits, and situations that lead to unhealthy eating.
