Life is full of choices like the decision to adapt a healthier lifestyle and lose weight. When author Mel P.’s back injury continually caused her debilitating chronic back pain and a host of other medical issues, she decided to take her health into her hands and embarked on a weight-loss journey. Over 25 weeks later and now nearly 50 pounds lighter, her debilitating back pain and most of the medical issues she faced are gone. “From Thick To Thin In 25 Weeks” chronicles how the author, an everyday woman in her forties, got her groove, her health and her life back.

There is just so much more to weight loss than just diet. It’s changing one’s mindset and lifestyle for the better. In this easy-to-read book, the author reveals what she did to lose over two metres of her body size in 25 weeks. “From Thick To Thin In 25 Weeks” follows her weight loss journey from beginning to end and 2 years on, showing her gradual weight loss both by her body measurements and weighing herself on the scales. It features photos before and after her dramatic weight loss, as well as the foods eaten and the type of exercise used. It also contains the tools used to achieve and maintain weight loss.

The author shares, “Ultimately for me, losing weight was getting down to a healthy me, my personal best, not what society thinks is best for me or what the magazines portray as the perfect woman or what she should look like. Losing weight was and still is about me, my needs, and my quality of life. It is about living again the way I want to, and the way I want to look in a healthy, happy body. It’s about enjoying the simple things in life, simply.”

In sharing her story, the author hopes to inspire others to map out their own personal plans for their very own weight-loss story. If one wants to be healthy, then one should seek out whatever tools and crutches deemed necessary for one to lose weight depending on one’s own circumstances. It may take some time, including a few botched up attempts, but the important thing is to never give up.

This book will be featured at the 2012 Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 10-14, 2012.
