REVIEW: Finally Thin by Kim Bensen
Kim used to weigh over 350 lbs. Finally, one day, a Bible verse sparked her to try losing weight just one more time, even though she’d almost completely given up hope that she could ever be thin again. (Don’t be turned off by the mention of the Bible, though, as this book only had a couple very brief references to verses).
With a friend, Kim signed up for Weight Watchers and, within two years, had lost 212 pounds! (without surgery!)
This book doesn’t necessarily outline yet another plan. Instead, it’s meant to be used in conjunction with whatever diet plan you’ve already chosen to do. And, if you’re still searching for what plan might work for you, there’s also a fairly thorough list of the diets out there, with pros and cons of each one.
The book includes tips for the “journey” as well as for the maintenance phase. I really enjoyed this one!
