The Big Skinny

Here's a quick book recommendation for y'all (who has been watching Reba? Me...enjoy my typing drawl:)

The Big Skinny: How I Changed My Fattitude

by Carol Lay


It's a graphic novel about this cartoonist's journey to a lower weight and better health! How cool is that? Unlike hefty health books that overwhelm me with information, Carol Lay focuses on her personal journey, and basic healthy choices we can all make. It includes recipes and some ideas for exercise, and it talks about the emotional hurdles we take on when trying to lose weight and keep it off. Did I mention it's funny?!

While I don't think I could be as disciplined as she is (she writes down every single calorie as she goes...and seems to reject alcohol altogether...hahahahahaha...right;), I love how she puts herself out there with this book. She is real woman with a real goal. Check it out from the Library sometime, or check out the website: http://www.thebigskinnybook.com/ for a new kind of health reading!

Loser Girl out!


  1. checked out the website, and it is super cute! She is very dedicated though, and has amazing grocery stores neer by...I live in the sticks and dont have a whole foods market or traderjoes. Bummer...ok enough excuses right? haha. Thanks for the great post, I want the big skinny book now!

  2. my dearest darling - i loooove reba! this is so wonderful - I'm so excited for you. (also, one thing i do to avoid eating while watching tv is 1) don't watch tv = too hard or 2) knit and/or chew gum while i watch so eating isn't possible AND at the end i have about a zillion knitted scarves)
