In Bon Bons to Yoga Pants, Lexie Greene begins making healthier lifestyle choices with the help of the Health and Happiness Society, a group where people meet to discuss their challenges with diet, exercise and other issues.
This is an enjoyable, inspirational story, and I can relate to Lexie looking to food for comfort. I do well as far as exercise. I like sweets though, so I’m in the process of learning to make better food choices. This process has its good and bad days.
The characters are likable, and the message that it isn’t your looks, weight or other people that define you and that you have worth simply because you exist are good ones. There is no way you can possibly please or impress everyone, and trying to do so is a waste of time and energy. I like how Lexie works on having a better relationship with her family, and I like the interaction between Lexie and Rachelle. I like the interaction between Lexie and Bradley also, and how Bradley doesn’t think Lexie has to be perfect.
I would recommend Bon Bons to Yoga Pants for its positive message, and I plan to read the rest of the books in the Health and Happiness Society series as soon as I’m able.
