"Such A Pretty Fat" Discussion #2

One of the things that I found the most interesting about the book were Jen's crazy relationships with people...her husband, her friends, her trainer, her neighbors, her parents, etc! Which relationship interested you the most and why?

Let the chat begin!

Ooops...I accidentally posted this on my own blog which made no sense! Haha, oh well.

Sorry it has taken me so long to get to this...I just got back from D.C. last night! Anyway, I wanted to start with a "no-spoilers" question in case some people haven't finished yet. So...

What did you think about Jen? Did you love her? Hate her? Want to grab a margarita with her? Did you connect with her? Relate to her?

Laughing my "Fat" off :-)

Hi everyone!

I'm on a trip to Washington, D.C. right now, but I was reading our book, "Such a Pretty Fat" on the plane and had to put it away because I kept laughing out loud and embarrassing myself! I hope everyone is enjoying it. Any reactions/thoughts so far? I'll post real questions next week, but I just wanted to see what everyone was thinking!

July Book~Such a Pretty Fat by Jen Lancaster

Well, it's July! You know what that means? We're moving on to a new book! This month, Brittany is our hostess with the mostess! I'm really looking forward to this book, it looks so fun:) Click on the picture to go to the Amazon link!

Synopsis from

"To whom the fat rolls…I'm tired of books where a self-loathing heroine is teased to the point where she starves herself skinny in hopes of a fabulous new life. And I hate the message that women can't possibly be happy until we all fit into our skinny jeans. I don't find these stories uplifting; they make me want to hug these women and take them out for fizzy champagne drinks and cheesecake and explain to them that until they figure out their insides, their outsides don't matter. Unfortunately, being overweight isn't simply a societal issue that can be fixed with a dose healthy of positive self-esteem. It’s a health matter, and here on the eve of my fortieth year, I've learned I have to make changes so I don't, you know, die. Because what good if finally being able to afford a pedicure if I lose a foot to adult onset diabetes?"

Sounds cute, no? I can't wait to read this one! Get started girls, discussions start in a couple weeks! Or whenever Brittany decides, lol! No rules here!;)
