Love Food and Live Well by Chantel Hobbs. Chantel has a very friendly warm open personal writing style that is enjoyable and easy to read.
Chantel shares the story of her personal struggle with weighing over 350 once upon a time. With her faith and hard work she lost 200 pounds. In the process she became an expert in the field of weight loss, as well as a certified fitness professional. She doesn’t just have the knowledge of what to eat, she’s experienced the heartache of feeling unworthy. In her book she says, “We’ll look at the deal the world has been selling us all of our lives-the message that we’re not good enough, not pretty enough not thin enough, and just basically that we’re not enough.” Hobbs doesn’t just offer expert advice, she offers hope.
If you’re looking for a “diet” book this isn’t it- this is a book to encourage you to change your life by changing your thinking. There is a section about healthy eating and a section about exercise with a suggested interval training schedule and strength/toning exercises using a stability ball.
This is a good book but I would have liked more healthy eating information since that is what the title lead me to believe the book was about. I have been told that her other book “Never Say Diet” is more about healthy eating.
Thank you tbbmedia for this book in exchange for my honest review.

So has anyone set goals or made resolutions this year?
This is going to be a year of focus for me.
focus my Father
focus on His goodness, His mercy, His forgiveness, His love, His joy, His peace, His boldness, His blessings.
focus on one another
focus on other’s needs, building up others, encouraging others, serving one another
focus on the race before us
focus “pressing on” towards the goal, forgetting what lays behind.
focus our goals, goals that honor and glorify our Father
focus on serving Him with our goals
to be continued....
