Reading for Sanity




“I absolutely believe in what this book teaches. Never give up and
push through to the finish. Set goals for yourself and follow through each
day to achieve the results you desire.”
—Noelle Pikus Pace, Sochi Olympian, Skeleton World Cup Champion

“Betsy’s humorous and clear voice draws the reader in on her
accidental journey to losing 75 pounds and a negative self-image. Not
your typical book of bullet points and fitness tips, Finished Being Fat is
a novel-style approach that motivates and inspires. Betsy›s candor shares
helpful strategies through her personal experience of losing weight and
dealing with personal obstacles to change her mindset for good. I found
myself using her strategies without making a list to do so!
—Connie Sokol, author Faithful, Fit & Fabulous

“Not only is Finished Being Fat engaging and relevant to every woman
that has ever had a sliver of self doubt about her body, but your true
“voice” and your self-effacing humor make you the sister that has walked
the walk right along with me. I recognize my own internal critic in your
story. It is compelling. I found myself sneaking back to my computer
while the kids ate their Cheerios, or late at night to read another dozen
pages. I could not stop. You bravely share the paradigms of your pre-thin
mind-set and include the reader on a journey as you become enlightened
as to your own worth and power. You are so clearly priceless, and because
you pull us along with you via hilarious anecdotal “aha” moments, we
recognize this truth about ourselves right along with you. “is book is
for EVERYONE, whether or not they have battled weight. It ultimately
inspires us to keep on running, never give up, and finish.”
—Tres Hatch, TV chef and author of Miracle Pill: 10 Truths
to Healthy, Thin, and Sexy

“This book is bright and inspiring—and best of all, doable. Finished
Being Fat is the next “Eat, Pray, Love.” You will fall in love with Betsy’s
charming, honest voice—and then you will fall in love with yourself, all
over again.
—Caleb Warnock, bestselling author of Forgotten Skills

“Proof that losing weight can be funny, too. Betsy is open and honest—a
welcome voice in the discussion about body image and getting fit.”

“Not only an entertaining read in its own right, but Finished Being
Fat is full of common sense approaches to a happier and healthier life. I
would definitely recommend it to anyone struggling to reach their goals
and overcome the burdens of past failures.
—Jeffry H. Larson, PhD, bestselling author of Should We Stay Together

“I loved this book from beginning to end. Betsy has a natural sense of
humor and down-to-earth way of looking at the world and weight loss,
and I appreciated her honesty about her feelings and trials. Finished Being
Fat inspired me, and I know it will inspire you, too.”
—Tristi Pinkston, author of The Secret Sisters Mysteries and others

“Finished Being Fat is an engaging true story about one woman’s battle
with herself. In her journey to lose weight, Betsy learns her problems are
deeper than dropping pounds. She learns to drop the walls and attitudes
that keep her from living the life she deserves. “e epiphanies within this
book truly do inspire others to break out of their self-imposed walls and
go on their own journeys.”
—Nikki Wilson, founder of
