Description: In 1993 Sandra Dalka-Prysby was a forty-eight-year-old wife and mother to three teenagers living in Beverly Hills, Michigan. She was 5 foot 7 inches tall, weighed 325 pounds, and smoked up to three packs of cigarettes a day. But Sandy loved life. She wanted to be there when her children became adults, able to participate fully in her family's joys and triumphs. So she vowed to take charge of her eating habits, give up cigarettes, and lose 150 pounds. And within four years, with the help of God, to whom she often prayed for strength; her family, who gave ongoing love and support; the editors of Family Circle magazine, who provided her with a nutritionist while chronicling her weight-loss for their millions of readers; and diet guru Richard Simmons, who stepped in when Sandy had reached a discouraging plateau -- she exceeded her goal. Giving up the cigarettes turned out to be the easy part, but by 1997 Sandy had at last succeeded in losing 170 pounds. And she has kept the weight off ever since.

A self-proclaimed P.D. (professional dieter), Sandy is a completely believable witness to struggles that many readers will recognize from their own lives. "Slow But Sure" chronicles her journey to good health, during which she learned the value of sound nutrition and regular exercise. Re-creating her journal entries, she bares all -- the small triumphs and treacherous detours, the fears, the embarrassments, and the joy. With total honesty, she speaks to the thousands of women like herself who have despaired of ever losing weight, and assures them that they, too, can succeed.
