Review of Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir by Jennette Fulda

half-assedAfter being diagnosed with type-2 diabetes last year I’ve been on my own weight-loss journey of sorts. I’m down a little over fifty pounds since last year and recently joined Weight Watchers to help keep myself headed in the right direction. I found this book on Scribd and thought it might be inspirational. In reality, however, it really didn’t provide that much inspiration. The author was, however, likable and just funny enough to keep me from quitting part way through the book. It reads kind of like a blog and, if nothing else, does demonstrate it is possible to lose massive amounts of weight and maintain a positive and healthy attitude during the process. If you’re looking for a “how to” book, take note that this isn’t it. The author offers no recipes, exercise, or weight loss tips. She does bring honesty and a good sense of humor to the table. Readers should be warned that while the author is not profane, she does have a tendency to use some foul language at times.
