Part memoir and part cookbook, "Before and After" is an intimate account of Susan Maria Leach's inspirational story. At 278 pounds, Susan couldn't fit into a rollercoaster seat, couldn't tie a bathrobe around herself, couldn't even ride with her husband on the back of his Harley. Enough was enough. Susan underwent gastric bypass weight loss surgery, and melted down to a mere 135 pounds. Susan's high-energy, honest, and engaging narrative has provided much-needed information and encouragement to countless readers, and will continue to motivate and inspire people with serious weight problems for years to come.
