Default Weight Loss Books...or other Must Read Books

My kindle is asking for a new book and I would love to read a good inspiration/motivation/or weight loss book.

What are your recommendations?

There is an older thread that I came across the other day were people listed waste loss books...but apparently I can't post links until I get a certain post? Google "Books that have helped motivate you or helped you lose weight" and it will be the first result.

Thanks, Batou! Books that have helped motivate you or helped you lose weight
This one?
Maybe people can add some books that have come out since 2009, as well.

GITS fan?

You're welcome Lunar. And yes, I am a huge GITS fan. No matter how many times I watch the show or movies I want to watch them again within 1-2 weeks.

I am always looking for something new and educational to read. These are the books currently stacked on my night stand.

SmallSteps- Do you also find that more knowledge you have- the more you feel equipped never to turn back?

I downloaded Thin for Life on my kindle.

Thin for Life, Beck Diet Solution, Think Thin, Be Thin are all books I think are inspiring.

I find that the more knowledge I have the easier it is to keep the weight off. I am losing at a very slow pace but I am also keeping it off when I lose it. In the past I would lose a lot of weight very quickly then gain it all back and then some. I am through with that FOREVER!

I've read a number of them but Four Day Win by Martha Beck is my go-to for inspiration. She really deals with making changes in your life, and making them STICK! It's a lot of mental exercises that help no matter what eating plan you're following.
