In a memoir based on her popular blog, dietgirl.org, Aussie Shauna Reid, 31, documents how she whittled the 351 lbs. she carried at age 23 down to 175 1/2 lbs. in 33 weeks. Her tales from the slimming trenches are hilariously compelling, but the real delight lies in hearing how she overcame shyness and self-loathing to travel the world, find true love with a sweet, sexy Scotsman and transform her inner life. A buoyant, funny and immensely likable romp—for readers of all sizes.
