Carol Lay is a cartoonist who does a lot of work about her own life. Her new book is "The Big Skinny: How I Changed My Fattitude" in which she describes how she was always overweight, failed at WW, etc., and didn't really get a hold of her weight until she followed the maxim "eat less, move more."
Her weight loss advice is all pretty straightforward. Her depictions of interactions with friends is pretty funny -- the opening page, in fact, is a hostess at a party who hasn't seen her in a while and is amazed at how she looks. She asks, "How did you do it?" Carol responds, "I count calories and exercise every day." Followed by several panels of the hostess just staring at her, silent, until she says, "Gotta go, bye." Then Carol wonders what the woman wanted her to say: "Liposuction? Pills? Strictly watermelon?"
Anyhow -- there's nothing groundbreaking in there, but it's nice to see a story about a woman who changed her body and appearance the old-fashioned way, not through some gimmick.
