    1. Although Williams is primarily a triathlete, her book is really for anyone looking for inspiration on their journey to fitness. According to her this book is for “real people with jobs and kids and love handles”. As a plus-sized athlete, she advocates concepts like abandoning self-consciousness, being slow, embracing bodily fluids, and becoming an active wear advocate. She asks her readers to examine their motivations for losing weight and to change their focus to being fit.In Chapter 44, ti [...]


    2. I really liked this author's take on fitness: don't work out to lose weight or because you "have to" - do it because it feels good! She recommends that you dare to wear lycra no matter what your size, and I (now) think that's awesome!


    3. OK, this is now my favorite book about exercising in the motivation/devotional category. (I call it a devotional because it's a great book to read a bit of every day not because there's any spiritual element to it.) I really enjoyed the author's attitude, her openness and the encouragement she dishes out. I read it in 2 days and then began reading it a bit at a time every day. It's really encouraging, will helps you examine your attitudes and feelings, and remind you of why you're out there runn [...]


    4. This was a highly motivating fitness book without being overbearing. Ms. Williams is not the average fitness advocate who you will see yelling at people to shape up on TV. She is like the rest of us. I wake up each day and get myself to the gym before 6:30 five days a week, but I am overweight. At one point I lost 50 pounds but over time I gained all that back sitting at a desk for 8+ hours a day. My story is very similar to hers. Most of us struggle with our weight and Ms. Williams gives the re [...]


    5. Shape Up with the Slow Fat Triathlete by Jane Williams (pp. 288)Looking for insight into triathlon training, Williams was well reviewed for her Slow Fat Triathlete books on . Our library system had this one. I expected a little more insight on how to juggle the schedules and training regimes, but got mostly a motivational guide written in thematic sections that could easily be lifted from any running magazine. The snarky tone was annoying at first, but it found a balance in later sections. Heari [...]

    7. A friend of mine suggested this book to me after learning I'd been on a fitness journey for the past 9 months. I've lost a lot of weight, I've gotten in a shape that is a little less "round" and I still have a long ways to go. I was looking forward to reading this book to learn how to get into shape and become an imperfect athlete as a larger woman. There are oddball challenges that I've met along the way that smaller people just don't have. I was looking forward to learning about how to deal wi [...]

    9. Slow Fat Triathlete is one of my favorite books, so when Jayne Williams published this book, I knew I had to read it.I enjoy Williams writing- she not only has a great sense of humor, but she also writes honestly-she I appreciate. For in imperfect athlete like myself, its nice to read a fitness book from someone who is not feeding the reader the lies you see in so many books, like "oh, just to this every day and you will be skinny and happy". Instead, Williams preaches sweating and moving should [...]


    10. The idea behind this book: "get out and do it, stop waiting to miraculously be skinny first" is solid gold. How many things do we put off because we think we don't look perfect? She urges you to accept you will never be perfect. Let it go. Give it up. And go have fun.Putting off life in favor of a fantasy is the dumbest thing we could do to ourselves. Logically most of us know this, but we're still trapped by our fears and dreams. We buy into myths about how we look, and what people notice. Beca [...]


    11. I enjoyed her message of getting rid of self-consciousness as you try to get fit. When running outside or working out in a gym, it is easy to worry what other people are thinking of you. But odds are everyone is just worried about what everyone else is thinking of them. So let it go and find something you enjoy. It's a good guide to starting out.


    12. I liked this book- so fun to read about training in a fun entertaining way. I loved that she encouraged me to think like an athlete and be proud of every little thing I do and not wallow in all the training I haven't rocked! It was encouraging and I learned a few things- a good read for anyone but especially for anyone attempting to tap into your inner athlete!


    13. As a new runner, I wanted to learn more about triathlons and thought this would be a good read as a novice. I loved this book and could relate to it on many levels. It's realistic, funny, motivating, inspiring. All around a fun read. And yes, I learned all that I needed to help me to decide whether I could do it or not, well wanted to do it or not. She showed me I could.


    14. Very funny motivating Makes me realize that persistence is the key to success She captivates people by taking care of themselves no matter what shape or form. It's no wonder why I've done so many endurance events.




    15. Amazingly motivational and inspirational without ever becoming preachy, I think every woman should read this one!
