I enjoyed Kuffel's first book and quite frankly would not have cared if she regained all of her weight had her writing maintained the spirit found in her earlier work. Here, however, there are fundamental errors of exposition: what is the topic, Kuffel's weight issues or the blog or a meeting of persons who are on the blog? And I must agree that Kuffel that she keeps the writing at the level of fact and thus (as if the distancing of obesity were not sufficient) keeps the reader at bay. There is no why or wherefore to these stories --- although there are intermittent tales of trauma -- but only an obdurant contempt for the self and the world in which the self is (apparently) imprisoned. In the end, I found the hopelessness and despair that is reflected here frightening. Yes, ultimately, I found these women and their seemingly unshakable self-destruction, and all the rage directed at others because of it, frightening in a very primitive way.

Someone else had said they wanted to like this book. I feel the same. It's a very sluggish, difficult read. The author states throughout the book that this was pulled from her blog and interviews - and that's what it feels like. Unrelated blog entries. I'm a third of the way through the book after several weeks and I just want it to be over. Now there are some awesome points in the book which made the lightbulb go off above my head or where I felt, finally, that someone completely understood how I was feeling about a situation. I just wish more of the book was like that. I've struggled my whole life with my weight. More times unsuccessfully than successfully. I don't think I was expecting answers, but there are so many weight loss/struggle memoirs out there that get the point across much better than this. The book had so much potential and it disappointed me badly.

I recently decided to re-read Frances Kuffel's first book "Passing for Thin" when I discovered her new book, Angry Fat Girls. I ordered two copies right away and was anxious for their arrival. One copy is for me and another for a friend who shares the same "reality." Losing only to regain what seems like the same 100 pounds over and over again. In this book, Frances' journey is interwoven with those of Lindsay, Katie, Mimi and Wendy. Friends she met here on Amazon. Each woman's story is different and yet the same. I can relate to so much having been on my own weightloss rollercoaster my entire life. I laugh with Frances and at times I cry. My heart aches for these women and their pain. I cheer their victories.

Frances has a edgy humor that suits me. Her thoughts on giving your weight to God or a Higher power made me laugh out loud. Her words, "I can't bear people talking about HP. I inevitably wonder how Hewlett-Packard has provided a miracle." Seriously Frances, I think the computer world miracles are handled by Apple.

As a woman who has spent much of my life "mordidly obese" there are frank topics that I have never seen or heard mentioned before. I am not just like anyone of these five women, but I am the same...just the same.

Mimi's simple realization, "It's my decision whether to be happy or unhappy" struck me as I had that moment about 20 years ago. I chose to be happy whatever I weighed although I want to be healthy so I continue the effort to lose half of myself once again.

Frances deals in facts. "Just the facts Ma'am!" The way she relates those facts really does suit me. Call it inspiration. Maybe I feel a common soul with her and her friends. I know I share a common story. I hope that they are all able to leave the anger behind and find happiness in their lives regardless of their current weight.

This is a thoughful, thought filled book

I read her first book and liked it and thought this would be like that but it's more a reference book because she keeps using quotes from other books about fat people. It's just not her story but stories from a blog of friends and just hard to get through.

This book reminds me of myself and my online friends. We are all wanting and trying to lose weight and are going through some of the same struggles as these ladies in the book. I highly recommend it.

I have read both of Kuffel's weight loss books. The first was very good, it was the story of her very impressive weight loss, and it inspired me in my own weight loss journey. The second one, Angry Fat Girls, was confusing as she jumped back and forth between 5 women who were not very successful at losing weight. I thought it was awful.

But when I saw this "new" book, "Eating Ice Cream with my Dog," the description sounded like it was the story of Ms. Kuffel losing that 100 pounds she had regained. As I'm struggling with my own maintenance, I thought the new book would be just the inspiration I needed.

However, when it arrived, I discovered it is the Angry Fat Girls book, retitled! What a rip off! I suppose I could take the time and inconvenience to return it, but I probably won't. Just wanted to warn others. If you've read Angry Fat Girls, DON'T BUY THIS BOOK! It's the same thing!

ANYTHING Frances Kuffel writes is worth reading. Twice. Maybe even a third or fourth time. Then again.... nothing like a fifth go-around to prove to yourself that ANYTHING Frances Kuffel writes is worth reading!!
