The One Day Way Review

The One Day Way, by Chantel Hobbs, is a book about Hobbs' theory on weight loss- that if you tackle it one day at a time, it will be easier and work better. She tells a little bit about her weight loss journey of losing 180 pounds, and tells the stories of a few others who followed her plan. She also includes a meal plan, some exercises, and inspiration.

Honestly, I didn't like this book. It was incredibly repetitious for the first (many) chapters- yes, one day at a time, I get it- and yet she contradicted herself a few times about this like setting goals- if tomorrow doesn't exist in her plan, how are you supposed to have goals to work towards? She also talks about how you need faith, but not necessarily religious faith, and yet then throughout the book it feels like she's trying to convert you to Christianity, and she keeps referring to how the reader believes in God. This really only seems like it would be a useful book if you need to completely change your life and lose 100+ pounds, which I don't. All I need is to lose baby weight from my pregnancy, and this book doesn't even address something like that. Overall, I would not recommend this book.

*I received this book for free from the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
