Lisa D’Elena-Borges had a career in the communications field that spanned over 25 years, mainly working in radio in New England. Changing career paths and dipping her toes into writing, Lisa made her debut book a personal story. Lisa lives in Warren, Rhode Island.
In her new book Life in the Fat Lane, author Lisa D’Elena-Borges tells the story of her own personal struggle to lose weight and keep it off in a world that is almost too crazy and hectic to allow it.
Spending decades of her life trying to find the balance between marriage, children, career, and staying healthy, the author shares intimate details of her personal struggles and triumphs with raw emotion, honesty, and even a little humor. Lisa tells stories about things that we all think about, but nobody will talk about, such as the struggles of dining out, the nightmares of shopping, airplane seats, amusement parks, and turnstiles. And ultimately, it explains not only how the world perceives and judges plus-sized people every day, but how they judge themselves.
“Life in the Fat Lane” was written for anyone who may be facing a personal struggle and working to overcome it. Whether you have had your own weight loss struggles in the past or are looking to begin losing weight now, this book and Lisa’s journey to acceptance is destined to entertain, touch, and inspire you.
Lisa is gifting a $15 Dunkin’ Donuts gift card to one lucky winner. Just answer the following question: What is your favorite hot beverage?
