How to Lose 9,000 Lbs. (or Less)
edited by Joan Buchbinder and Jennifer Bright Reich

How to Lose 9,000 Lbs or Less There are hundreds of diet books out there that offer whole programs that, if followed to the letter, will supposedly help you drop the pounds you want. But what if you're not looking for a new program to follow? What if you just want a few tips on eating better, or suggestions on how to manage your life so that you don't pig out? If that's what you're looking for, you'll love this book because that's exactly what it's about. The editors found 516 real dieters who offer their advice and insight on how they got, and kept, the weight off. Instead of lectures from experts, you get practical, down-to-earth views on food, exercise and weight loss. Topics run the gamut from motivation to temptation to dieting while traveling. You can open the book just about anywhere and read something worthwhile that will help you keep yourself in check. A few facts and statistics are sprinkled throughout the book, but the main course comes from people who have figured out how to make eating healthy a part of their regular lives.

A few gems:

"I went to the bank and got $100 in nickels: that weighs about 25 pounds. I put them in a backpack and took it everywhere I went. This helped me realize just how much extra weight I was carrying around every day and how much it was weighing me down. When I would lose a pound, I'd remove the equivalent weight in nickels." (This dieter has lost 40 pounds.)

"The way I stick to my workouts is by keeping the expectations low each time I go in. The toughest part of any workout is just getting to the gym, so if I tell myself beforehand that it will be a short workout, there's much less dread involved. Once I'm there, I usually end up working out longer than I planned, thanks to this ritualistic cycle of self-deceit. I'd recommend it to anybody." (This person has dropped 15 pounds.)

There are hundreds more tips where these came from. How to Lose 9,000 Lbs. (or Less) is one of those books that you can open up to any page for some motivation, and you'll usually find the right words at just the right time.
