    I read Kuffel s first memoir, Passing for Thin, a few years ago, and I remembered liking it, so I was looking forward to reading this follow up In that first book, Kuffel lost half her body weight and found herself on what she called the Planet of Thin But her stay like that of most people who lose weight wasn t permanent Over the next few years, during which she was promoting her book and blogging about her life, she regained half the weight Through her blog, she met several women in the same s [...]

    I made it about halfway through this book and was actually happy when it disappeared from my Nook and returned itself to the library My first struggle with this book was that there just seemed to be too many characters I can handle multiple characters in a book when each one has a distinct personality and has a story that keeps me wanting This book did not offer that My second concern was the mix of fiction and non fiction I wasn t distracted by wondering which was which but knowing it was ther [...]

    Some really amazing things about this book, and some disappointing stuff as well I loved and now would like to reread Frances Kuffel s first book, Passing for Thin, which I found smart and moving and beautifully written In a way, it s unfair to compare it to Angry Fat Girls, because Passing for Thin is a pretty straightforward memoir, and Angry Fat Girls a ambitious nonfiction novel So, kudos to Frances Kuffel for attempting something different, and probably much difficult to write And there a [...]

    I wasn t able to finish this book I was really excited to read it after I picked it up at the Library, but the writing style was just to scattered and confusing for me The book had great potential but I don t think it was put together very well.

    I haven t read Passing for Thin and after reading this book, I don t think I will Frances makes it sound like being thin is the holy grail As a fat person, I don t want to be thin I want to be healthy and Frances and her non fiction characters clearly aren t healthy I rarely will make it through a non fiction book unless it s about parenting and even then I have to force myself This was a book I forced myself to finish as I ve struggled with my weight and my demons all my 36 years I don t know i [...]

    This book was NOTHING like I thought it would be And not in a good way, either I was bored out of my mind throughout most of it It was very confusing because it switches from past to present to past over and over again, even though the chapters are set to read in chronological order I felt like it was a fat power book or a why we hate thin people book It also made some fun of people who are only 100 or so pounds overweight, because those people couldn t possibly know what the author went through [...]

    This book was all over the place and not much in new information The only thing I didn t have an understanding of before was how mentally ill an obese person can be even if they ve lost a lot of weight This book sprang from the association of some bloggers so who knows what otherwise healthy obese people are like We ll probably never know because they are not so self obsessed.

    A weird combination of fiction and statistics You get the feeling that the author is incredibly unhappy An interesting look into the world of the super morbidly obese Scary.

    This book was hard to read due to poor sentence construction and a lack of structure Probably this book should have stayed a blog.

    This book gave me insight into the lives of women struggle with being overweight But it is much deeper than just the extra pounds There are the emotions, the psychology involved, the physical struggles that happen from carrying excess weight It is the stigma, the self loathing, the false and sometimes accurate self perceptions or negative perceptions of others placed upon the overweight Candidly and courageously written.

    Angry Fat Girls 5 Women, 500 Pounds and a Year of Losing It Again is a story of women struggling together to manage their relationship with food I found the book to be incredibly relate able, as I come from a long line of dieters.Kuffel doesn t sugar coat the issues that surround the symptom of obesity She pokes a bit at the medical issues we are all aware of Diabetes, arthritis, loss of mobility But this book dives far deeper than that It displays the origins of the struggles with food addictio [...]

    In 2004 Frances Kuffel wrote a book called Passing for Thin about the huge weight loss that made her a thin woman for the first time in her life However, like the vast majority statistics vary, but can be as high as 90% of people who manage to lose weight, she regained This book details her and four friends she met online s daily struggle with weight loss and being a fat woman in a society that just hates fat people It tries to answer the question of why, when the stakes are so high personally, [...]

    I didn t finish this book Such an awesome potential but alas the author is a blogger and the book unfortunately read at times like scattered blog posts In addition, there were too many girls yes, 5 but the author toggled back and forth between stories details so much that I had to keep going back to see who I was reading about Finally, the author employs strange and awkward sentence construction so often I had to re read sentences over and over to try and decipher meaning PS She first lost me wh [...]

    Hmm, I ve read non ficiton that felt like a novel, but I ve never really done fiction that read like a memoir Can t say that this approach worked for me, but it did at least hold my interest until the end In this book they author tells her own story of regaining a large amount of wright after a very public and successful weight loss journey She fleshes her story out by introducing fictional characters, so it is difficult to tell the fiction from the non fiction Together with numerous intersting [...]

    Very moving Kuffel fairly ruthlessly examines and dissects the lifestyles, histories, flaws and neuroses of her friends and herself She reveals a bit about her childhood and it s hard not to feel that her parents really did border on neglectful she describes them aptly and kindly as having a genius for children under three and over eighteen She also doesn t gloss over the fat that the angry fat girls eat a lot Once again, you don t really feel any kind of definitive conclusion has been reached [...]

    I enjoyed following the women s stories and lives and to know that I m not alone in the yo yoing back and forth and some of the terrible habits I have Starting a diet Eat all the bad stuff Having a bad day Eat Celebrating Eat sigh This book didn t really have a great solution because there really isn t one It was eye opening to hear about the surgeries available, the costs and risks associated with them, and how unlikely it is that the insurance company would pay for it as well as the costs of a [...]

    I am usually all over these books, I love to read inspirational and motivational books, but this one just didn t capture my interest I think it was the diet plan that was being followed While I am happy that people can lose weight and there are several ways of accomplishing it, this just didn t help me If someone is looking for a good inspirational and motivational read, I would suggest Finally Thin by Kim Bensen, or Ruby s Diary by Ruby Gettinger Kim has taken the weight off and maintained it R [...]

    I SUPPOSE i WANTED ANGRIER WOMEN NOT SELF LOATHING WOMEN WHO ALLOW THEMSELVES TO BE USED AND ABUSED IN ALMOST ANY EVERY RELATIONSHIP THEY HAVE i UBDERSTAND THE FRUSTRATION HAVING BEEN A FAT PERSON MY ENTIRE LIFE bUT i HAVE A MUCH HEALTHIER IDEA OF WHO AND WHAT i AM AND MAKE NOT EXCUSES OR APOLOGIZES TO ANYONE Somewhere in the middle of this book fat acceptance is disscussed but to not real solution for any of the women I would like to help these women love themselves and stop the angry.

    i just pulled it off the library bookshelf and took it home this was a great read for me i felt as if i got to know frances enough that she was keeping me company as i read i had an ache of missing when i was done and was happy to find france s blog so i can still enjoy her companye book was so human and raw i really appreciated the gut wrenching honesty and the continual attempts to reach out of stuck places.

    This book was very confusing to read since it seemed to be jumping from not only person to person but also random topics It had a lot of great information that would have been powerful if it was organized better It is still a great read for people who like diet memoir type of book and it is great because of the facts.

    As with its predecessor I found parts disturbingly like and parts disturbingly unlike my own journey over years I m glad I read it.Do you realize how many people who lose weight regain it Do you realize that you re not alone if you do This helps with that It s a real book with real experiences although disguised to protect their real lives.

    Great potential and Kuffel is certainly a talented writer The book suffers, however, from a lack of a central focus Each paragraph, or section, reads as a separate entity from the rest That said, it remained an enlightening account of compulsive behavior and the worldview and attitudes that help perpetuate that compulsion.

    a well written thought provoking look at fat, food addiction, the causes of obesity, and whether significant weight loss is actually even sustainable Really enjoyed it and the questions that it brought up

    I did not enjoy this book They all blamed their parents for their issues and weight I also didn t like the way it was written The author jumped around so much you didn t know what the heck she was talking about

    Very vividly written non fiction novel about five overweight women who relapse back into fatness Gives an insight into food addiction and made me realize I am quite similar except not quite so addicted.

    a bit disjointed in the writing style the fictional stories of Frances and her fellow angry fat girls , but she had so many insights into the mindset of an overweight person s relationship with food, I loved it anyway ended a bit strange no real ending just sort of stopping.

    Read 2 pages LEARNED ALOT Poor dogs being fed ice cream, and she buys pints Ew, no wonder she was fat with food on blanket If you eat in bed and it not movie night and its not popcorn butter dripping FAIL

    I love Frances Kuffel This one is no match for Passing for Thin, but I love Frances Kuffel Hence FIVE stars.

    Thought provoking writing about weigh and why we weigh what we do I respect and accept the notion that your outside appearance reflects the overall status of your life.
