  {A boost in my walk...}



Hey Everyone! I hope your all having an awesome week! I just love Friday's. They are not only heading into the weekend, but we also have Bible study tonight, and I really enjoy getting together with my friends and having a great night joining with other believers and exploring deeper into our faith.

But this post is not about Friday, or bible study, or the weekend. But it's about a book. A book that if you are on or starting a weight loss journey, you MUST read it! Its not a self help book or one that teaches you anything, but it's a story about three friends that are trying to FINALLY loose the weight.

Nola and her two friends, make a pact, the Cinderella Pact, to lose the weight and get healthy together. One takes the personal trainer route. One gets gastric bypass, and Nola does it to protect her secret identity. This identity is that of Advice columnist Belinda Apple. A hip, British, thin woman whom everyone loves. Nola had to fake her resume to get the job, and now she is struggling to keep her job between a strange romance, working out, and not getting arrested! Its an amazing book that I highly recommend. It had me laughing out loud, crying at spots, and totally shocked at it's twist and turns.

It also gave me amazing inspiration because I saw my self in all of the women. So run out and get the Cinderella Pact. You wont regret it!

Thanks for leaving me a comment. I do love spending time with the boys and watching them laugh and play. I love that they have their innocence and can just be silly with each other in this crazy world.

The book sounds good. I love to read. Be blessed today and enjoy your Bible study later.

Sounds like a great book, I have gained 12lbs in the last few months because of a medication I am on. 98lbs to 110lbs. It's a horror. Nothing fits. Good thing we are heading into winter and big sweaters! I am having a giveaway on my blog every Wednesday starting tomorrow I would love you to stop by and help me spread the word. Thanks Nikki!
