The Elephant in the Room: One Fat Mans Quest to Get Smaller in a Growing America by Tommy TomlinsonThe Elephant in the Room was recommended by my Goodreads friend, Dita. I knew once I read her thoughts I had to read this book, too.
Tommy Tomlinson is candid and authentic in his memoir about his weight loss challenges. He shares his weight of 460 pounds and the health difficulties that go along with that.
Tommy grows up in a family where love for food is number one, and he’s had many doctors talk to him about his weight over the years. He has tried every gimmick and diet, and nothing seemed to work for him, but he also recognizes that he wasn’t sure he was ready for a change.
Tommy chronicles his life as he begins to change his mindset, seeking comfort from others in the same shoes.
From the start, I connected with Tommy’s honesty. He felt real and I was cheering him on his journey all along the way. Tommy puts his whole self out there for the world to see, good and bad, and he does everything within his power to to gain control over his choices and to work towards a healthier life. It’s just the kind of inspirational read I needed. If you could use some inspiration, too, or if you enjoy a well-written, original, deeply affecting memoir, take a look at The Elephant in the Room.
I received a complimentary copy. All opinions are my own.

When Samoa Air announced it would begin charging passengers by weight, the airline industry buzzed with reports that overweight passengers should pay more for air travel. Safety regulations from the U. Federal Aviation Administration FAA mandate that passengers must be able to lower their armrests and sufficiently buckle and fasten their seat belts. However, the average seat width for a domestic economy flight ranges from 17 to 19 inches between the armrests. According to the U. Department of Transportation DOT , airlines are not required by law to provide additional seating or an upgrade in the event additional space is required for a passenger. There is no industry-wide policy, and each airline handles the situation differently.
