Heartbreaking and uplifting at the same time 30 de diciembre de 2012

I started reading Raincoat Diary because Lorrena is a friend. After reading it, I felt like I wasn't a very good friend. Lorrena writes her innermost feelings to the only friend she feels she has and can trust. Lorrena describes her battle with her weight and the emotions she felt in such a way that you can't help but root for her to overcome them. Whether you know her or not. I gave the book 5 stars because it is written in real and raw language that gives you an in depth look at exactly how Lorrena feels.

A Shockingly Honest Look Into the Authors Life 8 de diciembre de 2012

I really enjoyed this book. I finished it in one day, the book is 135 pages. Without going into details about what is in the book, I wanted to give you a feel for what you can expect while waiting for it to arrive and to help you decide if it is a book you would enjoy reading. As someone who struggles with her weight, I can identify with the author. The book is in no way a how to and isn't going to give me my answers for how I can win my battle with weight. What it is though is a daily diary outlining the struggles that the author had with her lack of support from her family and her battle with depression. The diary is brutally honest and took me on an emotional roller coaster with the author.. I felt her pain, I felt her joys. Her raincoat was her security blanket.. and I think we all hide behind something. The goal is to learn to love and accept ourselves in spite of our shortcomings and the power of these "objects" or even people shrinks. In the end, this is a success story. The author won her battle. She found happiness. She shares in the last chapter what she attributes her success to (no, I'm not going to tell you, you need to read the book). But what I can tell you is what the book left me with. I feel now a sense of bravery to be who I am and to speak what I feel, to not hide behind a raincoat, my children, or a smile. I feel less alone in my own battles and want to seek out other women in the same situation and develop a support system. The daily life of taking care of children and a home often leaves women forgetting to take care of themselves.. and I am ready to start putting me first (while still loving on my family).

So why four stars instead of five? The only thing that I would change is I wish it was longer :) I wish that the entries would have continued as the weight dropped. The majority of the book reflects yo-yoing and struggles with success.. much as my reality has been and I love that the author took the time to show the failures and not just "start" over with the diary. It's important for me, as the reader, to see the struggle. But once everything started to work, there are less entries. Perhaps they really aren't needed because like I said, I really enjoyed the book. :) But that is something that might have improved it.

I love that the author included photos. Lorrena, You look FABULOUS!
