I first met Tres Hatch at a book signing this last spring. And like most great book signings, I usually come away with some great books, by truly inspiring authors. I only wish my book budget was greater. But I made her book a priority after hearing her story, and realizing she had a sweet tooth like myself. And her eating one of my cupcakes, helped a bit, I’m sure.
In her book, The Miracle Pill: 10 Truths to Healthy, Thin & Sexy, Tres shares her story of overcoming her weight struggles, self image struggles and turning her life around. It’s truly a book that is worth it’s weight in gold. Because no matter how much weight you need to lose, it’s about what’s on the inside that counts.
I’ve started reading this book, and slowly applying her words of wisdom to my every day life. It’s a slow process for me, but I am discovering just how strong I really am. I am not super thin, and never will be, but I can be healthier so I can bake my cupcakes and eat them too.
I admire Tres for sharing her story, for being open to sharing her feelings, so many of us don’t want to share. She is a woman of courage and strength.
