I can undersatand your thoughts after reading those reviews, think i should go post one!
I didn't get that from the book at all. She never once preaches to get to a tiny waistline... what she talks about is making exercise and nutrition a life long habit, and she offers some cool tips about how to stop things like that "whiner in your head" when it's hard to stay motivated, and how important it is to start small. (for example, walking. Start walking 3 days a week, even if it's just a few minutes at a time. Keep doing it for 6 weeks, then work your way up to an additonal 5 mintues or whatever... you get the picture)
She even talks about her love for things like a Whopper Jr. from burger king and how she loves Mexican food, but now she only eats the weirdly curled chips from the basket instead of the whole basket, lol
Anyway I'm not ever going to be a size 2 and never have a wish to, but I thought it was a good read. She didn't make me feel like I should try to be any size but happy and healthy.
The book is in the car, so I'll have to post the Author tomorrow!
