Book Review: "Finished Being Fat" by Betsy Schow

This month marks the four year anniversary of Mormon Mommy Writers Blog. When we started this blog all those years ago, our goal was to support each other to write good, uplifting books, and to promote those type of books as well. That's why I'm so excited to do this post today. I get to not only promote a very inspiring book, but I also get to support my fellow MMW blogger, Betsy Schow by reviewing her debut book!

Not everyone can win the race, but everyone can finish it. In her quest to wish away an extra 75 pounds, Betsy changed her life for good. Using her Philosophy of Finishing, she snowballed her efforts from weight loss into a bucket list of seemingly impossible dreams. This inspiring account of one woman's journey will help you find the strength to conquer your most daunting goals and unfinished projects.

Finished Being Fat by Betsy Schow will have you laughing, crying and maybe send you in search of a Zumba class or two.  I know I did all three! This book illustrates one woman's journey from self-loathing to self-confidence and self-esteem. The damaging voices women hear in their heads can be very difficult to overcome. Most women don't even know where to start. Betsy uses her very real story to show that it can be done and that finding one's self-worth is more important than fame, riches, or even a very shiny medal! Congratulations, Betsy on writing a great book for women everywhere. 

Be sure to go to Betsy's blog and to check out her new book on Amazon!
