Bon Bons To Yoga Pants
by Katie Cross

Lexie Greene has always had such a pretty face.

Unfortunately, that’s where it seemed to stop. She’s grown up hearing her Mother constantly remind her that she needs to lose weight. And twenty-three-year-old Lexie knows she’s overweight.

With her younger sister’s wedding on the horizon and a crush to stalk on Facebook, Lexie’s had enough. She gives up her constant daydreams about food and joins a dieting group. As the pounds melt away at the gym, she finds that life on the other side of junk food isn’t what she thought.

Bon Bons to Yoga Pants is an inspirational hit about a girl coming to terms with herself, and her past, all while navigating a world of food and fitness.

Review:I read this on Wattpad just a couple of days ago and I loved it so much. So inspirational, so realistic, so moving. Lexie is so relatable, and everybody is fleshed out – I love how everybody has insecurities and fears, and Lexie’s growth is just phenomenal.

Lexis starts off going into this whole losing weight business for a man, but slowly grows to realise that her health is important, and she has to lose weight for herself and no one else. The female relationships in this story are amazingly written and developed. Lexie’s relationships with her family grow and evolve throughout the novel as does her relationship with Mira and even her best friend Rachelle. She learns, she starts to embrace herself, flaws and all, and it is amazing.

I’m Ara, a Southeast Asian writer who someday hopes to have published a novel, and who is currently losing herself in the worlds created by others. I love books and food and television and blogging and I get distracted and sidetracked easily.
