One woman's story of how to eat right, lose weight, and win the battle against diabetes



"Uh Oh, my underwear is shrinking!"

We'd like to believe that, wouldn't we? Sanding in front of the mirror, ample belly and thighs stretching the fabric of overworked undergarments… we’d like to believe that it was the underwear doing the shrinking and not our bodies doing the growing. Unfortunately, that’s not usually the case. But why? We try to eat right, we try to exercise. Where are all of these extra pounds coming from? As this book will show you, from some often overlooked and unexpected places

Inside you’ll also find:

  • A meal plan based on an easier-to-understand budget
  • Tips for fitting exercise into your everyday routine
  • Sample menus for healthy meals
  • The motivation to get started and stick with it

And to make things painless, you’ll learn from someone else’s experience — the easiest and best way to understand something new. So what are you waiting for? Make that underwear grow, not shrink. Fit back into pants you haven’t worn in years (they’re probably back in style). Stop feeling helpless about your weight and your diabetes. With Help! My Underwear is Shrinking you’ve got all the tools you need to drop pounds and win the battle against diabetes.
