Sip & Nibble™: How I Lost 120 Pounds

"Sip & Nibble™: How I Lost 120 Pounds reads with honest simplicity. It tells the story of a strong and bold woman and her remarkable journey to pursue her ultimate goal; to get rid of the crushing pounds of her suffocating weight. Jenniffer recalls many of the diets that didn?t work, and the hopes and disillusions of another yoyo-effect. However, her determination was stronger than her fears! Jenniffer traveled to Europe by herself, taking a leap into the unknown, hoping the net would appear, and it did. In Sweden she discovered a new world and explored it. She visited cities like Amsterdam, toured historic places and landmarks, and enjoyed the European fl avour, until she reached the end of her quest at the clinic where the lap band operation would be performed. There she met the doctors who would perform her life changing procedure. In this book, page after page Jenniffer delivers her story with humor as well as pain that grips you and pulls you into her life. Every person who has fought the weight loss battle, with or without success, will learn a lot from this book and recognize a part of their own story hidden within the pages. And who knows maybe next time you will be a winner also."
