It has been years in the making. A few weeks ago, I received the first copy of my book, 150 Pounds Gone Forever, from my publisher Sun Rise River Press.
John asked me how it felt to hold the actual book after long months of editing with my great editor Karen. I told him, “It feels unbelievable.” I had been toying with the idea of writing down the things I shared in my weight loss classes into book form for years, but the thought of actually doing it seemed impossible. Just like it took a long time to lose weight, it took a long time to write the book and over a year to find an agent and publisher.
The book is 309 pages long, has 50 tasty recipes, and a lot of information about my journey and my thoughts on weight loss. There are before and after pictures, which are part of any weight loss book, and the details on the plan I used to lose my weight. One thing that makes the book unique is the “Your Turn” sections that encourage you to answer specific questions I ask concerning the topic at hand. For example, in the “Eat Out Without Blowing Up Chapter” I ask you to consider how you make your entree selections and how you view visiting a restaurant.
If you would like to win one of two copies I am giving away, please do one or all of the following. Leave a separate comment for each entry. If you would just like to buy the book yourself, you can get it from Amazon, Books A Million, Sun Rise River Press, or your favorite book seller. All readers all eligible, regardless of where you live.
