Hope the book does some good. It's hard for people to reverse large weight gains once things get so far out of control. However I have seen quite a few who have turned the corner and lost a great amount of surplus weight fairly quickly too. Often it is when they are facing serious related illnesses and early death.

But its not about weight really is it? It's about how we see ourselves in comparison to God's love for us. The whole entire point of the book is that IF we see ourselves as God sees us then we DON'T have that nagging insecurity that comes from comparing ourselves to other people. Most people don't even realize that they are subtly comparing themselves to others. OR judging others, (which is a form of comparison), in the back of their minds all the time. Comparing outcomes in terms of choices is fine. Comparing worth or value is not.
