I have 2 essential points to make:
- always wear 2 bras when undertaking sport – even the slimmest with small boobs do I’ve noticed. And make sure they are proper sports bras too.
- build up the exercise slowly. Only add when it becomes easy.
What is curvy and what is slim is one of the biggest dilemmas in a women’s life today. I just read an article by someone about the No Diet way of eating – she reckons that we don’t need to diet – and then proceeds to give us instructions on how to eat, when to eat, what to eat and how much to eat. If anything is a diet that is – and her own weight just scrapes into the healthy range at 18.7 (% fat), so whilst she has some good ideas – it’s still a diet to reduce weight to the lowest you ‘should be’ to be considered healthy.
I think she has a point about calories though, as counting them makes you feel guilty the whole time. And that is what we have here. Another book where the heroine is overweight and has struggled all her life to lose weight and she has a mother who remains extremely thin – but eats nothing – and makes her feel guilty because she eats. And constantly reminds her of her weight – which is not the way to go of course.
And then we do have a romance. But will he still love her if she loses weight?
I did enjoy the book even though the storyline was not really new. It was nice take on this trope with fun and humour and a nice heroine you feel for.
