My Thoughts

The author, Shauna Evans, talks about her struggle with her weight in a way that so many of us can relate to. After each baby, I worked hard to shed those pounds. I did fantastic after Number 3, but Number 4 is still hanging around. I'm not complaining, but there's been little that I've done that's made a difference. 

That's what intrigued my about Shauna's book. It was a completely different way of looking at weight loss than one I'd ever tried before. So many of the books I read want you to eat and fuel your body like an athlete. When I'm in training for a run that's great; but, when the most exercise I get is hauling laundry baskets up the stairs, it's not the best plan.

After looking through the pictures and recipes, I'd be willing to give this a try. It's not too difficult, there's no counting calories or logging time at the gym, though Shauna does advocate regular exercise.  All that I'd have to do here is be able to tell time. I think I can do that!
