Running Lean by Diana L. Sharples

I just finished reading the book Running Lean by Diana L Sharples.  I very much recommend it--I thought the main character, Stacey, was written perfectly (she is supposed to have an ED).  I was actually more interested in how her boyfriend Calvin was written.  Once he realizes that something is up with her, he researches anorexia online and tries to fix her.  Every time he sees her he begs her to eat something, saying he just wants her to be healthy.  I think he was supposed to be the "sane" one in the book, but I found him to be so annoying!  He reminded me of a jerk I knew who reacted similarly with me.  Anyway, I guess that means that the book was pretty well written if I had that kind of reaction towards one of the characters!

I am at 122.5 today and not expecting to lose anything as we had a family get-together earlier.


  1. I love when you expect a gain and see a loss. I do feel guilty about it afterwards because I didn't earn it lol. I'm going to have to check that book out :)

  2. Hi, I've just started following your blog :)
    I haven't heard of Running Lean, but I'll add it to my list. I'm always looking for new ED books to read.
