REVIEW: Finally Thin by Kim Bensen


Kim used to weigh over 350 lbs. Finally, one day, a Bible verse sparked her to try losing weight just one more time, even though she’d almost completely given up hope that she could ever be thin again. (Don’t be turned off by the mention of the Bible, though, as this book only had a couple very brief references to verses).

With a friend, Kim signed up for Weight Watchers and, within two years, had lost 212 pounds! (without surgery!)

This book doesn’t necessarily outline yet another plan. Instead, it’s meant to be used in conjunction with whatever diet plan you’ve already chosen to do. And, if you’re still searching for what plan might work for you, there’s also a fairly thorough list of the diets out there, with pros and cons of each one.

The book includes tips for the “journey” as well as for the maintenance phase. I really enjoyed this one! 🙂

  1. I really wish more people would go the duet and exercise route rather than surgery.

    Oh I’m having an author visit on Monday there will be a book raffle for a copy if her book. it’s Marie Bostwick. I have her bio up now.

  2. The funny ting to me is that surgery (at least any surgery I understand) doesn’t actually take off the weight: it still requires the diet change.

    The reason it works (when/if it does) is because when you “cheat” your diet you get the runs and other uncomfortables to reinforce you’re cheating.

    Pretty gross, really.

  3. I am NOT turned off by mention of the bible in Kim’s story – I wish I knew which verse so I could look it up myself! What a beautiful thing to be bold enough to speak about the most powerful book on earth!
