Overview
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you sneaked downstairs after everyone else went to bed to work on your novel, catch up with a friend, redecorate the living room, learn how to sew, paint, play the trombone, anything EXCEPT steal food from the kitchen to cap off a "bad" eating day with a good old-fashioned late night binge? This book is a real-life account of two women and their weight loss journey. It's also a guide that details how others can team up to discover a place where food is food, exercise is no longer torment and chocolate is synonymous with neither Heaven nor Hell.
Description
Have you ever wondered what life would be like if you sneaked downstairs after everyone else went to bed to work on your novel, catch up with a friend, redecorate the living room, learn how to sew, paint, play the trombone, anything EXCEPT steal food from the kitchen to cap off a "bad" eating day with a good old-fashioned late night binge? This book is a real-life account of two women and their weight loss journey. It's also a guide that details how others can team up to discover a place where food is food, exercise is no longer torment and chocolate is synonymous with neither Heaven nor Hell. After two decades of dieting, bingeing and purging and failing AGAIN in their efforts to lose weight and keep it off, this sheepish two-some resigned themselves to the fact that this Monday would look like all the other Mondays before. With renewed commitment after a weekend of overindulging, there would be a valiant attempt at a morning walk and a bowl of tasteless high fiber cereal for breakfast, low calorie dressing drizzled over a plate of veggies and some celery for a snack. But by dinner time, feeling lightheaded and deeply deprived, we’d be stuffing our faces with the entire contents of the fridge, paying special attention to foods that we’d suddenly put on the “forbidden” list. We were caught in the endless cycle of yo-yo dieting. We had already employed every weight loss tactic on the market, diets, workout crazes, appetite suppressants, and hypnosis. Nothing seemed to stick. If we didn’t find some way to break the cycle, we were destined for obesity, severe health issues and deep DEEP depression. Forget the dress size, we just wondered what it would be like to fully participate in a conversation with friends while out to dinner, without being wholly distracted by the bread basket. We were determined to find out. We took the tip that we had read in countless magazines and books (“Work out with a friend.”) and turned it into the starting point of a new plan. A plan that began with one simple tool: friendship. And we lost weight, lots of weight. But even more importantly, we started to take care of our bodies, our psyches, and ourselves. 1 Weight Loss Plan, 2 Friends, 3 Weeks: Using the Buddy System to Fight Fat is a real-life account of two women and their weight loss journey. Two women who had seen the ugly side of plus-size shopping and self-hatred – late night pizza binges and bloated mornings – and found their way to healthy living.
About the author
When April and Stacey met at Ithaca College, they fed each other’s love of theatre, music and high fat foods. Their friendship reached dizzying heights when they discovered that, not only could you get pizza delivered to your dorm room, but also warm chocolate chip cookies with a side of milk. They believe that every woman deserves to feel good about herself and though this may sometimes seem like an uphill battle, healthy living is always more fun with a friend. Both women are from California.
