    Weight loss fiction recommendations?

    I love a good book and read Mum on the Run by Fiona Gibson a while ago and loved it, despite not being a mum myself. It's not really a weight loss book, rather a "sorting your life out and getting fit" book but it inspired me a while ago and made me laugh. I'm looking for some similar stuff. A nice feel good read would be great.

    So just wondering if anyone has any book recommendations for funny fiction about losing weight (or trying to)?

    Jemima J by Jane Green - read a while ago and enjoyed
    You Don't Have to Say You Love Me by Sarra Manning - loved this

    I've got these to read, but both were recommended to me:
    The Next Big Thing by Joanna Edwards
    Conversations with the Fat Girl by Liza Palmer

    The Boot Camp by Kate Harrison ( Not read this either but like her other books)

    Hope that helps

    Good in Bed - Jennifer Weiner - not a fav of mine, but i know lots of people who enjoyed it

    I really enjoyed The Dieter by Susan Sussman - it is funny but also very moving.

    Not fiction but I recommend:

    Confessions of a reformed dieter by A J Rochester
    Adventures of Diet Girl by Shauna Reid.

    Both excellent reads and there are so many parallels between their journeys and the average dieters that they are really relatable.
