Inhaltsangabe zu „[(703 : How I Lost More Than a Quarter Ton and Gained a New Life)] [By (author) Nancy Makin] published on (June, 2011)“ von Nancy Makin

A moving, funny, tongue-in-cheek memoir about a woman who lost and found herself online. Nancy Makin weighed an astounding 703 pounds in May 2000. She was forty-five and suffered from obesity-related maladies. Due to shame and logistics, she was homebound for a dozen years. But all that changed when she received a computer. In cyberspace she found the friendliness, the connection, the acceptance and the nurturing she'd been missing for so long. She followed no particular diet plan; no surgeries, pills, potions or ab-crunching exercises played a part, and yet today Nancy has lost more than 530 pounds and kept it off for more than seven years. Her tale is one of redemption and shows a growing America that there is hope...if you believe.
