From the Back Cover:

Early Praise for Our Lady of Weight Loss

"Janice Taylor and Our Lady of Weight Loss, give us just what we need -- a lift, a laugh, and, of course, a kick in the tush. Taylor has found a unique way to fuse weight loss with creative expression, and she puts it out there to help others with wit and warmth."
-Jami Bernard, author of The Incredible Shrinking Critic

"Divine intervention at its best and funniest! Who knew? The powers that be are hilarious! Never has losing weight been so much fun!"
-Colette Bouchez, medical writer for The New York Daily News

Funny, compassionate and wise, Our Lady of Weight Loss and Janice Taylor speak to the whole person stuck inside every professional dieter."
-Jessica Porter, author of The Hip Chicks Guide to Macrobiotics

"Janice Taylor was sent from above to bless us all! Using her personal experience, she takes the daunting task of losing weight and turns it into a frisky and inspirational craft project. Consider this book your personal diet guardian angel to lead you to a healthy, artful life where veggies aren't only tasty, but also make for great collage embellishments."
-Kathy Cano Murillo, author of Crafty Chica's Art de la Soul

"Slim down while you laugh it up. Be inspired by Janice Taylor's success story. If she can do it, anyone can. . . . . Losing weight and keeping it off isn't easy, but it is possible. Instead of drugs, you need a sense of humor. Instead of gimmicks, you need to find new sources of joy. Janice turned to art. Turn to her and see if it helps. We all need a good kick in the tush sometimes."
-Marilynn Preston, Tribune Syndicated Columnist
