Let's face it, as women we think about our weight. Men do to. Maybe I should rephrase that, and say as humans, Americans, mothers, fathers, teens, even kids, weight is something that is thrown in our face constantly. TV, magazines, internet, you get the picture. After having my fifth baby, I've taken a look at my own eating and exercise choices, and realize that I've fallen short of where I should be. Maybe this is you. But maybe, like me,...

I typically do not enjoy reading nonfiction books, but as someone who has struggled with my weight for several years, I found The One Day Way by Chantel Hobbs to be a very inspiring read. It is very refreshing to hear advice from someone who has been there and has lost the weight herself vs those who have never known what it is to be overweight but think they have all the answers for fixing your problems. During the course of the book,...

I have to admit that I don't read a lot of diet books. They seem so depressing. They rush into what you should eat and what you shouldn't eat and what exercises to do, and they quickly get overwhelming. I read this book because it was a free for review book from Waterbrook Press, but I am glad that I did. The One-Day Way: Today Is All the Time You Need to Lose All the Weight You Want by Chantel Hobbs spends one chapter on exercise, and one...
