Don’t get me wrong, I loved that Andie took the time to send a kind message, but I already was planning to review her book. Her kindness certainly was noted, but it didn’t sway my thoughts on her book.
I already loved Andie’s book. It Was Me All Along is about Andie’s lifetime battle with food. I ran across the book after it was featured as an Audible new release. I was motivated to move it to the top of my reading list when I then saw a short review of it in Women’s Health magazine.
Andie’s decision to share her story was incredibly brave. She was 20 years old and weighed almost 300 pounds when she decided to take control of her weight. But making a decision to change is not the same as making change. Andie struggled with justifying poor food choices, latching onto fad diets and then having an eating disorder opposite of the original one.
Sadly, there probably never will be a time in Andie’s life that food, and the comfort that comes along with it, won’t be a problem. But, it seems like she finally understands this and has channeled her love for food and cooking into a great blog, Can You Stay for Dinner. The site includes low-calorie recipes and food ideas.
Add It Was Me All Along to your reading list. You won’t regret it.
