Thin is the New Happy..by Valerie Frankel

"At age eleven, Val Frankel was put on her first weight loss program. As a teen, she was enrolled in weight watchers (for which she invented creative ditching methods). As a young, woman, her world felt right only when she was able to zip a certain pair of jeans. Not wanting to pass this legacy on to her own daughters, Valerie set out to cleanse herself of her obsession. This is the New Happy is the true story of one woman's quest to exorcise her bad body image demons to uncover the truth behind what put them there, and to learn how to truly love herself."

This is a very funny memoir of a Jewish woman from Brooklyn, who struggles with her body image for most of her life...Until she decides to STOP all the stupid dieting and take charge of her life. She puts herself on a NON-DIET. With easy to follow rules..Ms. Frankel shows us how to really follow a diet...DON'T!!

i LOVE some of the ideas that Ms. Frankel shares with us on her journey.
I'll be sure to refer back to her often.

This is a pleasant read, its a sure page turner, it'll have you laughing to yourself, and it is thoughtful.
