I actually finished reading this like a month ago but forgot it was on my "currently-reading" shelf. My bad. Plus I've gotten really behind on my reading. Trying to become less of a fat-ass is like having a second job, for real. Plus it's slashing my reading time significantly (because I'm not coordinated enough to read a book whilst on a cardio machine), which sucks, but I guess the benefits my body is gaining outweigh my brain's current degeneration. Okay I'm rambling. I found this book to be quite helpful and motivational for what you should do for weight loss and getting healthy and leading a healthier lifestyle overall. I've had a difficult time sticking with rules #1 and #7 (7 is a total bitch). But yeah, here are the rules for future reference...
