Diary of a Dieter - Marie Coulson


Curvy girl, Charlene Winters, had it all: the great career, wonderful friends and a dreamy fiancé. 

With her wedding day just three weeks away, Charlene is dealt a devastating blow. Suddenly finding her life, hopes and plans in tatters, the jilted bride sinks into despair and a tub of Ben and Jerry’s cookie dough. After discovering the depths of her fiancé’s infidelity and with the heartache still fresh, Charlene’s whisked away by her friends on a life-changing holiday. But how will this big fish cope now that she’s back in the dating pond and surrounded by slender trouts with Botox lips?

With best friend Adam thwarting her attempts at romance, and her girls Vanessa and Dana eager to set her up with a boy toy, Charlene decides the time for change is upon her. What she needs is a change of scenery, a change of dress size and maybe, a change of heart.



This book seriously had me in fits!

Me - probably 80% of this book:

And all mostly because of Grandma! She is seriously hilarious, that I demand a book on Grandma! I will even create a petition If I have too, or go on strike! I don't think my husband appreciated me deciding to read this in bed, I was getting all sort of looks but mainly this one:

But If you have read and enjoyed this book, you will understand why! Grandma, Charlene, Adam and the rest of the tribe were so funny. I loved Adam. Charlene would tend to piss me off at times, more towards the end but great read, especially if you need something light and for a laugh.


Some Gran quotes:

"What? You all think that just because I’m old, I don’t know a thing or two about sex? Good Lord. You’d think your generation invented the stuff. I hate to break it to you, but while you were learning to walk, young lady, I was crawling around on all fours. Your father had a cock like a battering ram and more energy than a Duracell bunny."


"I never did like that toad of a man. He was all mouth and not enough cock and balls. Girl needs a man who will fight for her and fuck her into the ground."


“And you, Miss Boobs-Bigger-Than-Her-Brain, just because you found a husband stupid enough to put up with your shit, doesn’t mean that Charlene should settle for anything less than what she deserves. Gareth certainly deserves you. I do wonder sometimes if his brains are buried somewhere in those unsightly, and quite frankly, unnaturally large arms of his. He’s as thick as two large tree trunks and is about as much use as a chocolate teapot. You’re for decoration and ornamental purposes, and don’t ever imagine you’re anything more. You’d be terribly disappointed in the big scheme of things. Dress it up however you want dear, but you look like Barbie and Ken on steroids.”
