"Monica begins every chapter with a diet she committed to and reveals how much weight, money, and self-esteem she lost, then she tells how much weight she gained when she fell off the wagon. In this hilarious yet poignant memoir, Parker takes you on her wild rollercoaster ride, a timeline of modern-day diets: from Metrecal to the Master Cleanse, from the Baby Food diet to the Russian Air Force diet, from the Cookie diet to the Clay diet--and everything in between. You'll experience her fears and frustrations as she wades into the dating pool of "Mr. Wrongs," until she unexpectedly finds "Mr. Right."--Publisher's description.

Don't expect weight loss to be a very serious subject in this book. The author does have a good sense of humor and I like that she accepts and loves herself (because many overweight people do not). But I found her constant joking distracting.
