Author: Jessica Heights
Format: Kindle, eBook
Witty and candid, 100 Pound Loser is a motivational weight loss tool written by a mother of four whose jaw-dropping 100 pound weight loss story and practical advice will inspire, encourage, and motivate readers to conquer their weight loss goals and appreciate their bodies, regardless of the numbers on the scale.
From the text:
“I wrote this because I’m just like you…I’ve been where you are: feeling tired, sluggish, and out of shape. Wanting to make positive changes for your health, but overwhelmed by the enormity of it, with hands full of children and all the beautiful business of life.
I wrote this because I’ve done it. I’ve gained the weight, lost the weight, and kept it off. . .four babies (each a little over one year apart) later.
I want to encourage you to take the steps toward taking care of your body. I want to cheer for you as you reclaim your health. If you’re married, I want you to wink at your husband, and giggle with confidence when he comes after you, without trying to hide.
I want you to know you’re not alone—and that no matter what, whatever the mirror or the scale says, you are not just your body; you’re an amazing creature, fearsome to behold.”
I have been anticipating the release of this eBook ever since I heard about it. Being familiar with Jessica Heights and her blog, Muthering Heights, I knew this ebook would be funny, inspiring, transparent, and most importantly have impact.
I know you probably don’t want to read one more weight loss book. However, this is not just another book. It is a quick read that is filled with the kind of encouragement that inspires a person to make concrete changes for a new healthy life. If you need a cheerleader who has been where you are then 100 Pound Loser is what you need. It is a right kind of motivation for today’s busy moms. You will not walk away feeling lazy or hopeless on your weight loss journey. You will walk away with a sense of navigation and spring in your step as you head on your journey. At last a real woman who has felt the same frustrations as those of us who feel the pounds as obstacles as we walk.
On a bit if a side note, the ebook is more than inspiration to lose weight. 100 Pound Loser serves as inspiration to live the best life possible in all areas while learning to love your body and yourself no matter what the scale tries to taunt you with.
