1 Weight Loss Plan, 2 Friends, 3 Weeks: Using the Buddy System to Fight Fat, by April Paine and Stacey Wein, is an entertaining, personal guide based on two best friends' battle against late night snacks and early morning donuts. It's a real life account of their weight loss journey retold through shared journal entries about dieting pitfalls, and includes a guide that details how others can learn to live a healthy lifestyle too...with the help of a friend. 

Use friendship and accountability to help you reach your weight loss goals and share laughs, tears and lots of fun along the way!

The authors were BFFs caught in the endless cycle of yo-yo dieting, having already employed every weight loss tactic on the market. Forget the dress size, they just wondered what it would be like to fully participate in conversations over dinner without being wholly distracted by the bread basket! 

Taking a tip from countless magazines and books to "work out with a partner," two best pals formed a weight loss plan and a pact based on one simple tool: friendship. The weight came off, but even more importantly, the accountability between friends meant the women started taking care of their psyches (less negative self-talk) as well as their bodies (less chance of starting a fire with their thighs while wearing corduroys).

1 Weight Loss Plan, 2 Friends, 3 Weeks: Using the Buddy System to Fight Fat is not only a guide to healthy living.
