Author Talk: Mary T. Prenon
September 19, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Mary T. Prenon is one strong woman. In 1998, she vowed to lose fifty pounds no matter what it took. Nineteen years later, she finally achieved her goal and is ready to share her story with the world. Ms. Prenon will visit us with a funny, informative presentation based on her book and experiences. In her inspirational, humorous book, Ms. Prenon relates how she struggled for years with portion control, body image, and the allure of countless fad diets. Sudden employment changes, the deaths of her father, godmother, and lifelong best friend, plus everyday stress caused frustrating weight regains, but through it all she never gave up. Ms. Prenon tells her story with laugh-out-loud relatability and heartbreaking honesty. Most chapters conclude with a list of helpful hints, including how to stay motivated, find the right gym, and deal with inevitable setbacks, and the book includes personal recommendations for easy-prep meals and a summarizing list of dos and don’ts. Please join us for an fun, refreshing program!
