This refreshing guide takes its readers to the beginning of the process and reprograms their thinking about how a weight loss program should be approached.

By the end of Girlfriends Guide, you will have a whole new appreciation of the process. You will understand why you have not been able to lose weight in the past, how you can change that, and how you can kick some serious ass.
