My thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book and I think it can be very helpful to anyone who needs a jump start on their way to living a healthy lifestyle. Chantel really reinforces through this whole book that while big success is the ultimate goal, it is only achieved through taking your life one day at a time, with small successes along the way. If I mess up today, I can wake up tomorrow with the opportunity of making good choices and see success that day.

I also like that she included not just food and fitness, but the aspect of faith in regard to meeting these healthy lifestyle goals. It's not always an easy task to change your life, and being able to rely on God, God's Word, and prayer for strength can really give a person that boost to overcome and succeed.

I think this book would be great for someone (including myself) who may get easily discouraged when it seems big success is slow in coming. It helps to give a person the mindset that from a multitude of small successes, big results come, even one day at a time.

I would love to win this book. I am in a rut with my weight loss. I lost 55 lbs. this past year but have fallen off the diet since Thanksgiving. This may help me recharge.
