"How two sisters created their own health spas on a budget! K.I.S.S.E.S. Keep It Simple Sisters Economy Spa" by Diane Dolphin Torres and Susan Dolphin Johnson is a very nice and enjoyable book. It is utterly different from anything I have read on the topic. Most dieting and weight loss guides focus on what you should do, without emphasizing the difficulty of losing weight. This is a lovely memoir in which both authors relate their battle to become thinner, healthier, and obviously happier. They make it so relatable, you can only feel like following in their footsteps! Everything they share comes from experience, trial, and error. They open up about what went wrong, how they managed to overcome hardships, what they felt like, and what they did to finally win the battle.
"How two sisters created their own health spas on a budget! K.I.S.S.E.S. Keep It Simple Sisters Economy Spa" is so encouraging and heartfelt. I have always wanted to lose a few pounds and I believe they have given me the impetus I need. I also loved the illustrations, the beautiful pictures, the funny cartoons, and the quotes. Everything about this book is inspiring and engaging. To top it all, this guide is comprehensive as the authors deal with food but also with rest and sleep, and exercise. I did not know about food combinations as well as recommended liver cleansing foods for instance, and these are going to be extremely helpful in the near future. Thank you for your joy, for caring, and for sharing such a gem of a book!
