Someone here recently recommended Kim Bensen's book "Finally Thin!: How I Lost Over 200 Pounds and Kept Them Off -- And You Can Too".
I requested it from my library and picked it up yesterday. I can't put it down. I nod at so many of the personal stories she tells and cry at others knowing exactly how she feels.
I am about halfway through it and highly recommend it to anyone looking for an easy read. She's so inspiring.
I haven't gotten to the recipe section yet but apparently it has over 70 recipes too.
Thanks to whomever recommended it, it's great!
