Fat Chick by LORRAINE DUFFY MERCKL - a feel good factor read starts with fat chick eating tubs of BEN and JERRY'S and all the angst of uncontrolled emotive eating. Nice jolly funny lovable fat chick but inside she gently weeps.

During a period of controlled 'prison like' living, working, eating courtesy of a slimming club and gym, fat chick quickly becomes thinner chick obsessed by image. Now all of a sudden her preppy boyfriend of 2 years starts to invite her to work dos whereas before to his colleagues and well off family she was 'on vacation', 'on business', 'feeling unwell' ....so boyfriend who thought he was controling his new 'arm candy' is unceremoniously kicked to the kerb for personal trainer regime and subsequently new squeeze.

Success at work, size zero, personal trainer/boyfriend starts to fall apart with the death of 'gym friend ' Kim when fat chick now size zero chick lifestyle is not all it's cracked up to be. The shallowness, the self absorbed, the CONTROL of emotions all culminate to make our heroine open her eyes to her lifestyle and her heart to pain that she previously used food to alleviate.

The book is well written with no diet tips or advice as such but as us fat chicks know full well common sense, a sensible healthy eating plan with a little of what you fancy and that whistical 7th sense CONTROL brings success (so why am I still 'fat chick') Good enjoyable read.

Fun book to read. It would have been more realistic, however, if the main character wore a larger size than a 4 to prove her point at the end of her story. Yes, a size 0 is usually ridiculous unless you're a young teenager, it seems, but I'm thinking that the former ''fat chick'' could have, should have, bumped up to a much more normal size, like maybe an 8 or 10? Too many of us are having body size issues as it is, and can't relate to a size 4 in any way. But a few sizes larger would make the dream to become thin a lot more reachable.

Anyway, just my opinion!

Not bad, bit of a wannabe Jemima Jones effort. Fat nice girl turns skinny nasty cow and eventuality sees the error of her ways.

I enjoyed this, it was fairly predictable, but still a light fun read. Some good highlights. Finished in 2 sittings.
