EskieMama & Dragon Lady Reads Review: Fat Girl Begone by D.E. Haggerty
Fat Girl Begone!
by D.E. Haggerty
I’m a total mess. My boyfriend dumped me – get this – because I diet too much. Not because I’m fat, mind you. Of course, this spurs me into the diet-fitness-revenge-plan of the century, which leads me to the gym and a scorching hot personal trainer. I even manage to make some cool new friends, including a millionaire if you can believe it. Things are looking up! Naturally, that’s the moment my ex decides he wants me back, the personal trainer asks me out, and my millionaire male buddy decides to throw his hat in the ring. But that’s not enough drama. No, not for me. Because I’ve also lost my job and decided to start my own business. Just call me Ms. Drama.
Warning: Bad language, bumpy roads, and embarrassing moments ahead. But there’s also more than a bit of romance and even, if we’re lucky, love. Fingers crossed.

Debby's Review: 5 stars
I enjoyed Fat Girl Begone. D.E. Haggerty pens the story with just the right amount of humor and sarcasm. Each chapter starts out with a positive thought (sort of). Her response to exercising and dieting is exactly what many of us have experienced. As her life begins to spiral in a different direction, she finds she has her best friend, Blaze, and her new group of friends to help her and cheer her. With laughter and lots of snark, we will hop on with Everly as her life goes from the mundane to exciting fulfillment. Everly discovers that having the right person next to you is better than anything else. I found this book to be inspiring in many ways, particularly the notes at the end of the book. Starting a new exercise program is never easy but taking some advice from Everly can help. Being overweight is also not always in our control, something D.E. Haggerty stresses in her notes at the end.
Kudos to D.E. Haggerty for penning a fun story to read that contains serious undertones and lessons for us all.
