I didn't know that! That's really sad. I do remember when I read the book thinking that her plan had been pretty inflexible. Wow, she worked so hard. I guess that's further support (as if we needed it) for the theory that how you lose it is how you're going to keep it off.....so it has to be sustainable for you over the long term.
Sorry, LivingWater, that was the book I would have recommended. I'd still give it a read, though, because there was a great deal in her story that was moving, motivating, and valuable.
