Scott Davis is a very funny guy, and reading his story of weight loss is definitely a laugh out loud kind of book. Some of the predicaments he finds himself in, especially at his heaviest weight, are humorous but also very sad.  Somehow Scott is able to look at those times with humour.

Scott's journey to a healthy lifestyle involves an incredible support system at QWLCA (Quick Weight Loss Center) based in Atlanta. He followed a strict program, and visited the weight loss center three times a week. If you are able to take advantage of this incredible facility and support system, it sounds like a great place for anyone who wants to lose weight and keep it off.

This book is basically a personal memoir.  Scott talks about how his Christian faith was really the most important factor in finally losing the extra weight that had followed him around for years.  He turned his focus from satisfying his desire for food with a desire for God.
