"The One Day Way" by Chantel Hobbs
Weight loss is a struggle for many of us. In this book, Chantel Hobbs lays out some practical suggestions to help us on our way. It isn't about dieting. It isn't about blame. It is about change and the process of building what you want. Nothing worth doing is easy, but the suggestions and principles in this book encourage the reader that they are not alone and that they can do it. The three essential building materials of this book are faith, food, and fitness. The faith section deals with believing that you can make things happen. The food section has some wonderful meal plans. The fitness section is filled with exercises laid out in easy to follow instructions and photographs. The three building blocks will help you reach, and maintain, your goal of a healthy life.
I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to continuing with the principles. I found the exercises challenging, but easy to follow; and the meal plans were realistic. I also liked her "Ten Commandments" - boy, do they make sense! If you have had a hard time losing weight or even believing that you can, this book will be worth your time and energy. Thank you to the Blogging for Books program for my copy of the book!
