I purchased this book to help motivate me back into a fitness/ weight loss regime. It was so good to have all these peoples stories keeping me company as I aimed to do the same thing they were talking about.
Lots of variety in the stories and I never got bored listening. I only listened while I was walking, I saved it for that purpose only. 5.5 kgs down by the end of the book and starting to jog :))
I think this was geared more towards a senior audience.
One of the narrators had a smokers voice which was weird because it was about wellness.
It was more like older people walking more and doing work out tapes. Not really motivating for a younger listener.
There were some very nice stories that brought up good points about the importance of taking care of ourselves. It was a positive and motivating book. I recommend it for people who are on a journey towards improved health and could use a little extra support.
Majority of the stories talk about eating better and exercising for improved health and quality of life versus just fitting into a smaller pants size. Also, it didn't push for people to engage in any one particular diet or exercise. Everyone had a different story or experience that worked for him or her. I was able to take pieces from the stories and apply them to my life.
While I listened to them, it was listening to a friend tell me their own personal story over a cup of coffee.
Their was one part that literally moved me. One of the stories talked about a woman who made the decision to start swimming laps in the pool. Something about her story really clicked for me and I have now started trying to do the same.
If it was more pointed for shaping the new you.
New design it seemed to skip all lover.
the tips were good it just was not a good book being that its jumped around too much.
most of the stories.
just not a good purchase.
Well it all pretty much the same. Story's of the challenges of dealing with the issue of staying in shape. It is interesting in the beginning, but it really couldn't hold my attention.
Audion purchasers should be aware that the buy icon on the kindle is not the actual price charged and could result in an over draft if not careful. I have contacted customer service on this issue and they were unresponsive. I am less likely to order an audio book from the Kindle store unless the issue is resolved.
