This gal has lost a tremendous amount of weight. I am reading her book now. I do have a copy of the book if anyone wants to borrow it as it was not available for Kindle download. She has a very loyal and supportive sister (like I do) and came from a family life that was filled with anger. She has also experienced a lot of rejection and humiliation.
The only one of her tips that I might leave out was the eat breakfast one. I think we should eat when we are hungry not when it's time to eat. Granted we will probably be hungry if we stop eating at about 6 or 6:30 the evening before. I guess if we call our first meal of the day breakfast, it's OK. She has a blog that can be followed and is one of us - has gained some of her weight back that she is working on - she is not perfect.
