Thoughts on books and knitting


I Am the Biggest Loser.


OK, so I know what your thinking- “you don’t have to lose weight! You look great!” I know, I know.

When I started reading this book, I was amazed by the will power of these people- they went from 200-300 lbs. down to a normal size! WOW!

I picked up this book from the library and was intrigued by the idea that a person can lose so much weight. I read the personal stories of how they got to be that big, and how all they wanted was to be normal again. I felt sad for these people, and I wondered how one could let their physical health get so out of hand.

But then I started thinking about myself- I have always been petite- at 5’3″, I was always considered short. But over the past few years, I have put on about 10 lbs, about 1-2 pounds a year, nothing drastic. But I no longer fit into the clothes I used to wear without difficulty- I used to even have extra room in my clothes!

I recently started going to the gym with my husband, and have been going about 3-4 times a week if I cannot get outside to ride my bike or go for a walk (we do long distance bike rides for fun- I know, crazy!). While I am there, I see how many people are there and really trying to lose weight. I give them a lot of credit- it is hard to change bad habits and lose weight.

I enjoyed this book more for the personal stories than the recipes, but I did try one of the recipes and loved it! I recommend it- the frozen raspberry sorbet. It is quick and easy to make, and soooo yummy on a hot summer day.
