Mezz is overweight and overworked: she's convinced it's only a matter of time until her husband starts to stray.
Jewels is fat and fabulous, but if she wants the baby she craves, the Tim Tams have to go.
Ellie's life looks perfect to her London friends on Facebook: she keeps her waistline out of the photos and her loneliness to herself.

In this heartwarming, heartbreaking story, four women who meet online in a weight loss forum learn that losing weight might not be the key to happiness, but believing in the ones you live - and yourself - just might be.
