I shared this my friend and fellow blogger, Colleen, and she was happy to give her take on it...
I don’t know many people who have never worried about their weight, been on a diet or tried to be healthier. These are issues most people deal with throughout their lives. There are so many books out there to “help” you be a better you so I was skeptical to read yet another. The difference with this book is that it’s written by real people and not fitness gurus and doctors.
Shaping the New You has 101 stories that cover many aspects of diet and weight loss. There are stories about going to the gym, stories about willpower and stories about temporary setbacks. One of my favorites was written from a treadmill’s point of view, it was right on.
One of the things that I love most about this book is that you don’t have to sit down and read it cover to cover to get motivated. You can read a story or two here and there to keep you on the right track. I’ll definitely keep this book around to read for a quick pick me up on the days that the M&M’s win out over the apples.
