    The plot of Shauna Reid s book sounds almost like a chick lit bookrl goes on weight loss plan looking for self worth and conveniently finds a tender and caring Scottish man to sweep her off her feet who loves her just as she is There are definitely aspects of Dietgirl that are Bridget Jones esque, but knowing that it is a true story makes the book so much meaningful The book is laid out like a diary, with most entries including the date of the author s weight loss journey and her current weight [...]

    While I certainly acknowledge what others have said, as far as Shauna only recognizing her potential and finding self acceptance once she favoured the number on the scale, I still hold this as one of my favourite fat girl loses a bunch of weight and gets happy books Her sense of humour is really quite comedic, and I particularly LOLed so hard at the part where she catches Gareth with his bum out the window, tooting due to the curried lentils she d made for dinner earlier that evening I m not one [...]

    Like many readers, I picked this book up in the hopes of getting some inspiration from Shauna s story It s hard not to be inspired by someone who lost so much weight the hard, old fashioned way through diet and exercise Shauna spent years and years, not weeks and months, to lose her weight, which feels real than what we so often see in the media In this blog turned book, Shauna chronicles about the head space she was in over the course of five or six years Yes, she learned to eat healthy Yes, [...]

    This is not the kind of book I normally read, but I was so unexpectedly moved that I have to review it here I usually hate memoirs but Shauna Reid is the most delightful person, so charming and funny and well intentioned that only a Scrooge would root against her I teared up multiple times and read favorite passages out to my boyfriend as I read, and as soon as I finished I looked up her blog to see how she s doing now She has pictures on her Flickr of events from the book, FYI the Vegemite tast [...]

    One of those I picked this up at exactly the right point in my life books Also one of the few blog book that is even better as a book than a blog books When I first picked it up, I skimmed a bit in the middle, a date with Gareth, and was thoroughly charmed I m glad I did that, because starting at the beginning when she was so filled with self loathing was harder to get through But this was utterly rewarding and has made me think a lot about my own life and the Fat Girl Issues we share that she h [...]

    I finished this book in one day, but was entertained the whole time The author writes well, and you feel like you re reading the private thoughts of a very articulate, very personable best friend, with all the anxieties and doubts and ups and downs those of us who have tried to lose weight have felt at one time or another No Earth shattering weight loss tips, just the steady day in, day out tried and true strategies of eating better, and moving While it took over four years for her to lose 175 [...]

    It is difficult reviewing this book because it is a memoir However, that does not negate the fact that I hated it I bought it thinking I would be inspired but it had the opposite effect Plus, I think it sends the wrong message to women Just because you are heavy does not mean you have to sit at home like a hermit binging on food all day I am overweight but I have friends, I travel, I swim, I go out and have fun In fact, there are very few things I cannot do It s like Reid is saying the only way [...]

    I read this because it was recommended to by a friend It s one of the better books of this type that I ve read, and occasionally it does feel like she was in my head At other times I felt very disappointed that she seemed to be drinking the koolaid just a bit too much Good, not great, but certainly not bad, Shauna Reid writes an engaging book about weight, family and serendipity.

    I read this book 7 years ago and remember I couldn t put it down The allure of a very fat woman losing weight was so compelling to me However, in 2017, I have to say that I am appalled the the whole focus of the book is Reid trying to be thin She didn t want to be healthy, from what I remember she wanted to be thin And that s a problem I m not going to rate this book because it spoke to me when I was a different age, but I feel differently now.

    I thought I was the only Fat Girl in the world I mean, I thought certain things were Katie Issues, but it turns out they re a particular strain of Fat Girl Issues I ve never been anywhere near 350lb physically, but if I hadn t put a stop to things last year I easily could have been, given time And I think 350lbs is about where my brain s been living for the last eight years Like The Blue Castle did for me around this time last year, The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl has changed me I ve already [...]

    I must confess that I had never read DietGirl s blog before picking up her book I had just come off reading PastaQueen s memoir, Half Assed, and wanted something else to continue to provide me with motivation I picked up the book because she had recommended it on her own blog Shauna s tale was emotional and realistic The ups and downs she faced in dropping the pounds kilos touched me in a very personal way This isn t a feel good book, although you certainly feel good after reading it and knowing [...]

    I decided to make this my March reading project after seeing this on Katie Kempski s profile It caught my attention and went to check it out at our local library and I am so glad I did It was a great story, differnt that what I expected and gave me some insights to something I have dealt with all my life, trying to free myself from a life of poor food choices and trying to overcome the exercise limitations I placed on myself I give it 4 stars out of 5 So I have been able to honor my New Years re [...]

    Reading the Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl was just the thing to read to inspire me to lose weight this year There were several things that I loved about this book First, I liked that Shauna was easy to relate to As she began and traveled on her weight loss journey, you sympatized with her when she had setbacks and rejoiced with her as she lost weight This book engaged me from the first page to the final page and I coudln t put the book down I saw alot of myself in this book and I feel that if S [...]

    Best book of 2008, since that was the release date, and 2009, since that was when I read it First book that s made me cry in a long, long time First book whose real life love story set my heart a flutter Most inspirational book ever, maybe I m sure Ms Reid knows this but the story was so much than her truly amazing weight loss It was when she finally let go and dove head first into Life and Experiences and Freedom from The Body boy, can I relate that she became a Superhero I love this girl and [...]

    Maggie
    I have lost over 100 lbs myself, so I could relate to the struggle itself in the book, but I couldn t relate to the author I have always been confident and outgoing, even when I was over 300 lbs I always went out, socialized and took advantage of life, so it was tough for me to relate to that aspect I just couldn t get into the self depracating humor of the book Much preferred Jen Lancaster s sassy and savvy take on weight and such guess this just wasn t my cup of tea Bravo to the author on her [...]

    Super funny, moving and something every girl can relate to no matter her size

    Melissa
    A sweet story and I m super glad for the author s happy ending , but a good example of why most successful blogs make pretty crap books.

    Celia
    This was OK Shauna Reid is a warm, amusing writer but I think it was better in a blog format I just don t enjoy books that began as blogs.

    What a fun read Shauna is so naturally funny and writes with such an honest clear voice, that this was a really engaging and entertaining and well as inspirational read She is not writing high art or trying to but she certainly tells her story about life and self esteem and weight with a passion and emotion I found quite moving What a good way to remember what matters in life and to be inspired to follow her model of perseverance and positive thinking AND she fell in love with Edinburgh along wi [...]

    Okay, so here s a little background info before I start I would have absolutely never picked it up myself at the store Looking at the book cover, it screamed chick lit, airy, and trivial That said, my mom is the one who bought this book for me, one birthday or holiday or special occasion, at least several years ago I actually tried to donate this book, but then I felt bad, because my mom had really thought highly enough of it to buy me a copy I wondered her motives did she think I wanted to go o [...]

    The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl is part memoir and part chicklit and heavily weighted towards the ups and downs of dieting It s not a book for everyone, but I think it ll speak to any woman whose had to struggle to lose weight It s not a diet book really but as Dietgirl shares her experiences, you feel like you re living through it with her As I m balancing Weight Watchers and the Cohen diet, I felt the book could have been written for me.Dietgirl holds little back We meet her when she s 351 [...]

    I loved this book from start to finish Even though the plot is one all too common to many of us, the author s personality shines through clearly with every entry in this unique and enjoyable memoir This is the perfect book for any woman who wants to lose a few or pounds and who hasn t wanted to at some point in her life Over the course of six years, Shauna Reid lost half her weight, and I think she s courageous for allowing us to so intimately follow the ups and downs of her weight loss journey [...]

    This review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon Please head there for in depth reviews by me, which appear on a timely schedule.Diet girl is too fat for the scales No, really, so fat that even if she loses weight, she can t see it on the bathroom scales at home Instead she joins Weight Watchers, watches what she eats, begins to try exercise , and get herself out into the wide world.I read the blog on which this novel was based years ago, in 2012 13 I loved the blog, and I belie [...]

    Shauna Reid s weight loss battle is the real deal Originally a blog, this account take you from 351 pounds to 175 pounds with weekly journal logs You get way than you bargained for in this book First of all it is set in Australia This is cool Second, she does some world traveling That is also cool Third, there might be an adorable love story This is lovely I loved this book Anyone who has every tried to diet for even 5 seconds will love it, too A tad longer than it needed to be I sinned and ski [...]

    I borrowed this, and held off starting it I didn t think I was going to like it, frankly Though I am formerly morbidly obese, I never had the strength courage will power to lose my weight the old fashioned way diet and exercise But I feel such a sistership with people who are or have been obese The stories of their humiliation and struggles and self loathing and agony touch me so much Only a couple of dozen pages into this book so far, and I ve had numerous sobs catch in my throat, and my eyes a [...]

    I really enjoyed this book I was very very nearly inspired to put the book down and go work out But alas, I had to figure out how Shauna s story ended I was so excited the first time Gareth walked into the story I am going to exercise tomorrow If nothing else, I learned that it s not about the number on the scale, but about how you feel about yourself and your body For me, I d like to get toned all over and have my skinny clothes fit again I know it s possible I m not THAT far away from being a [...]

    If I could give this book 10 stars, I d do it Shauna Reid is an amazing writer and I hope she keeps writing it s obviously her calling The Amazing Adventures of Dietgirl is Shauna s personal story of how she lost over 150 pounds sorry, I can t remember the exact amount while she blogged about her weight loss over a period of many years Her blog The Adventures of Diet Girl , she s also one of the hosts of Two Fit Chicks and a Podcast It s a story of triumph and failures and it ll win your heart o [...]
