A NOTE FROM JEN LANCASTER: 

“To whom the fat rolls…I’m tired of books where a self-loathing heroine is teased to the point where she starves herself skinny in hopes of a fabulous new life. And I hate the message that women can’t possibly be happy until we all fit into our skinny jeans. I don't find these stories uplifting; they make me want to hug these women and take them out for fizzy champagne drinks and cheesecake and explain to them that until they figure out their insides, their outsides don't matter. Unfortunately, being overweight isn't simply a societal issue that can be fixed with a dose healthy of positive self-esteem. It’s a health matter, and here on the eve of my fortieth year, I've learned I have to make changes so I don't, you know, die. Because what good is finally being able to afford a pedicure if I lose a foot to adult onset diabetes?”

    " Lancaster's droll sense of humor is evident in this humorous and contemporary look at a woman and her life long love/hate relationship with food; and the challenges that causes. "

    " Wound up listening to most of this on audiobook while travelling with my wife, and I'm taking credit for it. I think she's compared to Sedaris, as this book uses the comedic memoir format, with the benefit of having an encompassing story arc of sorts. Bonus props for being set in Chicago, one of my favorite homes away from home. I should give it more stars, but if you're looking at the rest of my reading and agree with it, I wouldn't want you to mislead you; this was pure guilty pleasure and part research on comedic writing. "

    " This might be my favorite of Jen Lancaster's memoirs. I've read or listened to all. This was an easy and fun read. Reading her books makes me want to hang out with Lancaster while drinking wine and watching Bravo. "

    " Took more than one sitting to read this book. The author spent too much time debating on whether or not she was even going to write the book, so it should probably have been more about wrestling with that idea rather than the idea of changing her life-style and getting in shape. Very focused on herself, which is what I suppose a memoir is about, but not a lot of insight as to getting motivated and staying that way. "
