how I lost more than a quarter ton and gained a life

by Nancy Makin

Nancy describes the events of her childhood, early marriage and motherhood and how several things contributed to her excessive weight gain and the loneliness she experienced when she was housebound for many years. She tells about the gift that changed it all and her euphoria in discovering life again.

This is not a book about losing weight; it is the fascinating autobiography of a woman who has seen and experienced many events and circumstances. I was pleasantly surprised at how interesting her story was and highly recommend this book.

I listened to an audiobook version of this book which was a great way to make my ironing more fun, but the narrator's voice was somewhat inconsistent and changed from soft to harsh several times and she pronounced a few words incorrectly.
