Ahhh my favorite book. Too many. So here are two of my faves that happen to have very similar plots, one more realistic than the other one, but almost the same.

1. First there was "Jemima J" by Jane Green. Young overweight woman decides that her life is passing her by and that she needs to lose the weight to really live life to the fullest (and fall in love). In the end she comes to a better understanding that life should not be wrapped up in outward appearances.


2. Then there's "Waking Beauty" by Elyse Friedman where another overweight woman miraculously wakes up one day to find that she is no longer heavy and is now a knockout. Quite the fairytale, but wouldn't it be nice to just wake up perfect??

Both of these are really good reads, especially for a beach read.
