A creator of the popular blog by the same name chronicles her weight-loss journey, a seven-year endeavor during which she launched her career, traveled the world, experienced a little romance, and lost 175 pounds. Original. 40,000 first printing.


At just twenty-three years old, Shauna Reid weighed 351 pounds. Spurred into action by the sight of her enormous white knickers billowing on the clothesline, she created the hugely successful blog "The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl." Hiding behind her Lycra-clad, roly-poly alter-ego, her transformation from couch potato to svelte goddess began.

Today, eight thousand miles, seven years, and 175 pounds later, the gloriously gorgeous Shauna is literally half the woman she used to be. Hysterically funny and heart-wrenchingly honest, The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl includes travel tales from Australia to Paris to Red Square, plus romance when she meets the man of her dreams in a Scottish pub. This is the uplifting true story of a young woman who defeated her demons and conquered her cravings to become a real-life superhero to inspire us all.

A very honest journey from Shaunda Reid detailing her struggles to move from being a 350 lb woman to who she is today. It is not as detailed as the blog, but is still a wonderful portrayal of the ups and downs, the negative self talk and the ways in which she learns to get out of her own way and have a better life.

Great book for anyone looking for motivation to lose weight. She is completely real and lets us in on her very personal journey.

Oh well.. If I can't impress other people, I'll just have to work harder at impressing myself.
