ebook review: “100 Pound Loser: How I Ate What I Wanted, Had Four Babies, & Still Took Control Of My Weight – And You Can Too!”

January 3, 2013

Sometimes we need a gentle reminder of things we already know.  Sometimes we just need to know someone else has been there, done that…and bought the hideous t-shirt.  As we kick off the new year, our society is inundated with information about gym memberships and weight loss and healthy eating…and the list goes on.  This week, a very sweet friend of mine has released her first e-book and offers to weed through all of the “stuff” out there and simply encourage us.

Jessie01Jessica Heights‘ book, titled “100 Pound Loser: How I Ate What I Wanted, Had Four Babies, & Still Took Control Of My Weight – And You Can Too!” offers a refreshing look at plain and simple information, tossed with a lot of humor and common sense.  Her book is a quick read – I think I read it in just over an hour – but it offers a lot of encouragement in those pages.  I have known Jessie for several years and even took her a couple of meals after some of her amazingly beautiful babies were born.  I know that she walks the walk and does what she says.  I know her feet hit the floor running and she doesn’t let up until she hits the pillow at night.  She’s a dedicated wife, mom and author.  She’s had 4 babies, deals with daily pain from fibromyalgia and I also know that she did lose 100 lbs and kept it off…and she looks amazing!

I will admit, as someone who still needs to lose more weight, it would have been nice if there was a magic formula to follow and books like this weren’t needed.  However, as long as there is a weight problem in this world, it is nice that there are success stories out there that can encourage us and push us in the right direction.  I was especially grateful for Jessie’s reminders that our daughters (and sons) are watching us.  We need to be aware of those little eyes that are watching us and picking up their cues from us.  It can be really hard to do, but we simply have to do it.

The best part of this book though, isn’t the advice and encouragement.  The best part is how Jessie uses her sense of humor to give you the kick in the pants you need and keep you laughing while she’s doing it.

Definitely a good read and worth it if you need that extra boost of love and encouragement.  Thanks, Jess!
