There’s an exercise program just right for you---

no matter what your size or ability.

How many times have you “failed” at exercise?

On New Year’s Day, before every wedding or class reunion, after every drama filled appointment with your doctor, you try again.  You say, “This time I’ll exercise, and this time I’ll stick with it!”  And yet, somehow you don’t. 

Without even realizing it, you’ve hopped back onto the BIG FAT CYCLE.  You know the one that starts with PANIC (OMG I’m Fat!) moves on to FANTASY (I’m like so going to lose forty pounds this month.) to DEFEAT (I only lost one pound?  I want pie!) to SHAME (I couldn’t even stick to this plan for one lousy week?  I”m so lame! ) and back to PANIC again.  The cycle starts with panic and ends in heartbreak.

What if there were another way?  What if you could build health and fitness moving from one success to another?  What if you decided that the body you have is good enough as-is, and started taking care of it right away? It’s time for The Fat Chick Works Out! 

Based on knowledge gleaned over a lifetime of getting her big butt in motion and decades of teaching people who haven’t exercised in a while (or ever), are terrified of exercise, or just hate to exercise The Fat Chick Works Out! helps you hop off the Big Fat Cycle and enjoy moving your body again.

The book has three main sections:  “Get Ready!” helps you revise your thinking about your body and your relationship with fitness.  “Get Set” helps you design an exercise program that fits your life and your body.  “Go” gets you started on your twelve-week journey towards fitness and helps you fly above, around and through all the obstacles life throws your way so you can stick with the program. 

Filled with over 50 daily exercises, tons of color pictures and hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking stories from The Fat Chick’s own journey, The Fat Chick Works Out will not only help you get fit, but also help you love and find peace in the skin you’re in.

Praise for The Fat Chick Works Out!

I personally feel the book should be titled "No mountain too high to climb!" Jeanette follows my heart, brain, and spirit in accepting no boundaries of age, weight, or personal issues. She stimulates the dead zone in America and gently pushes you forward.
