"Angry Fat Girls"
Frances Kuffel the author of Angry Fat Girls joined us today to talk about how she transformed her life by losing 188 pounds and documented that weight loss in her literary phenomenon: Passing for Thin. She gained national notoriety and recalled sitting in the Oprah green room with a slew of celebrities, feeling resentful that she couldn’t touch the yummy Danish they had on display. And like the vast majority of dieters, Frances’s life transformed again when she gained over half of those pounds back.
In light of re-gaining the weight, Frances formed new friendships with four women in similar situations through the power of the internet. Angry Fat Girls: 5 Women, 500 Pounds and a Year of Losing It…Again is a funny, painfully honest memoir about these five women as they diet and eat, lose and gain, and struggle to find their individual definition of freedom along the way.
Frances has a book signing tonight at the Cedar Hill's Crossing Powell's at 7:00.
