A Lighter Burden

Freidy. A regular woman (or maybe not) who  takes up more than double the regular amount  of space. Her excess weight sends her on a years-long  search for svelte serenity, described in this  book with pain, honesty, tears and humor. You are invited  to shoulder some of the burden for a little while.

This story was first published as a serial in the Hebrew  Mishpacha magazine’s B’toch HaMishpacha. The stormy  reactions it garnered were the final impetus behind her  decision to turn those weekly columns into a book.

Her search for a solution to her weight problem led her  down many roads, until she found the one that worked  for her - bariatric surgery. In the end, she discovered it  was "worth the weight, as she finally found what it was  she’d been looking for all those years.

This is not just a book about weight loss  it’s a book about life.
