An occasionally humorous and heartfelt account of how a morbidly obese man lost approximately 100 pounds and began the process of getting his life back. This book contains practical advice about avoiding the traps of the weight loss industry and focusing on simple, everyday changes that can revolutionize your life. The author explains the joy of being "less fat" that comes from these changes in diet, exercise and overall attitude. Simple things you can do, starting now, that can make the difference between another day of waking up miserable and reclaiming the real you. This is a book squarely aimed at those with a lot of extra weight to lose, not the casual dieter who might need to drop 5 or 10 pounds.
