From the Publisher:
"In the fast paced life of blogging, two women stand out: Alexis Allbright, of Skinny Chick, and Shoshana Weiner, who writes Fat and Fabulous. Both have over five million loyal readers. Both are hungry for success. But the similarities stop there. With over 100 pounds on the scale separating them, weight isn't their only difference. Alexis is a loner who is so bitchy the only person who can stand her company is her gay best friend Billy. She gives neurotic New Yorkers a run for their money with her strict daily workout routine, and weighing of food. Shoshana is Alexis's opposite. Living in Jersey with rowdy roommates, she is someone who "collects friends," as her mother puts it; and treasures a life of expanding circles...and waistlines. When both appearas panelists on a popular talk show, their lives intersect in ways neither could have imagined. In turns comedic, heartwarming--and familiar to any woman who's ever stepped on a scale--Alexis and Shoshana realize they have far more in common than either could have possibly imagined, and more importantly, something to offer"--
The journey of self-acceptance & comfort in your own skin is a life long one for many. Weight plays a key role in this journey and it can sometimes make the road ahead of you seem long, winding & filled with potholes. No matter how fit, confident and put together a woman appears, everyone has insecurities
Kate Rockland's new book 150 Pounds is a fun entertaining read while at the same time it forces readers to think seriously about the very real issues women have with body image and maintaining a healthy weight. The characters are well developed and you will feel like you are friends with both of them by the end of the book. I only regret that I finished it so quickly that I can no longer immerse myself in their witty blog posts and daily trials and tribulations.
