I feel that any book that inspires you to stay with your program, or even adapt it as needed (as Amy often had to) is a weight loss book-tool. "On My Own Two Feet; From Losing My Legs to Learning the dance of Life. " by Amy Purdy with Michelle Burford is Amy's autobiography. She includes her story of growing up in a happy home in a Las Vegas suburb. How she became fascinated with snowboarding. Amy was 19 when she lost her lower legs and feet to an illness. This is all in the book. What I love isn't just the story of what happened to her, how she dealt with it-felt about it and ended up with being on Dancing With The Stars. What I loved was the story of her childhood dreams and ambitions. What she desired and with intention went after both before and after her loss. As in so many 'Big Picture Intentions' her life ended up not only fulfilling her dreams of travel, snowboarding and adventure but with a larger stage and helping other people in ways she never could have dreamed for herself. I love her spiritual story as well. Amy is one of those people you just know you'd like to have a nice long conversation with.
So yes, I recommend this book. A quick read as well. Enjoy it, be inspired by it and take action because of it.
