This book was, in all respects a simply marvellous read. Given to me as a present by my daughter, i have found the mantras, such as "i am not a snowflake" have become a central point in my life. The yoga exercises have helped me to lose 12 stone, my weight lose target for this year. I now only weigh three stone on tuesdays, but i find that it goes up by a few pounds before sinking by sudnay again, afterall, the stomach is the seat of all wisdom. I also feel it has been fantastically reassuring that the book focuses on shattering the illusions of perfection for women. I now squeeze my spots and eat my boggies infront of my husband- it is a truly liberating feeling. I actualy farted just now - and he had to leave the room ! I am indeed a new woman .............. a natural superwoman.
