This was a very candidly written weight loss journey! ( )

I agree with princessbabs - 'disturbing book'! I commend Susan Blech for her courageous, stripped down memoir; however, I often read this book with a twisted look of disgust on my face! I couldn't even eat one night, after reading through her fast food adventures.

I read this book to gain perspective on what prompts a person to gain an inordinately huge amount of weight. On a regular basis, I help overweight, and obese, folks adopt healthier, more active and nutritionally sound lifestyles. While psychological underpinnings are often the case with overweight folk, there is such a high degree of negative emotional charge that drives weight up to morbid and extreme morbid obesity. By reading this book, I hoped to gain a glimpse into what can be an extremely lonely, and often helpless, type of life. If I can offer one piece of advice to everyone, it is to not only treat overfat people like human beings, it is crucial to reach out and include them, as you would ANYONE. ( )

By the time Susan Blech was 38 years old, she weighed a staggering 468.1 pounds. She binged. She was "only a little chubby," or so she convinced herself. Gripping, sometimes shocking, and ultimately inspiring, this is the story of how Susan changed her life to save her life, ultimately losing 250 pounds without surgery. Susan speaks candidly about eating binges, fat sex, and other topics no obese person has dared to address as she recounts her transformation.… (more)
