As a "big girl" myself, I was sure I would immediately love this book. That didn't really happen. It started well enough, but then I got kind of bored and had a hard time picking it back up. I've tried losing weight over the years (I've always been overweight, even as a kid) but I didn't do extreme diets and all this other stuff that Kelsey did over the course of her life. I was just resigned to be the fat girl. Every now and then, I'd get a membership to a gym and eat healthier, tracking my food, weight, and exercise. But it wasn't an all-the-time thing, and it would last for maybe a year then I'd stop and gain all the weight back (and then some, usually). So I couldn't really identify with what Kelsey was saying about fad diets and all these other things she was doing.

Now, when she finally circled back around to when she started doing intuitive eating, I got interested again and finished the book relatively quickly at that point. I even bought another book specifically about intuitive eating because of how it helped Kelsey, and I'm hoping it will kick-start my weightloss/lifestyle change, because I have definitely gotten into a plateau and I'm not where I want to be.

All in all, this was an informative and somewhat inspirational memoir. If you are looking for something that you can identify with and will give you motivation to change your own lifestyle, then this might be a good place to start.

I like that this book is about the show itself, not so much about the actors.

Well done. No boring parts to skip.

If you’re hoping for photos, there are none.

If you have ever watched Friends then you need to read this book, it helps to pull back the curtain and tell you what happened behind the scenes.

I’ll Be There for You: The One about Friends

I Picked Up This Book Because: I’m a huge Friends fan, I’m shocked it took me this long to find out this existed.

The Story:

A behind the scenes look at how Friends started and rose to some of the highest heights in network TV. It was informative and entertaining. The book included quotes from the creators, writers and cast. I had tons of feels for 90s nostalgia. But it didn’t convince me to dislike Ross any less.

The Random Thoughts:
