Book Review: Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy

Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy
Shellie Rushing Tomlinson

In her latest book, Shellie Rushing Tomlinson helps the reader to further understand the Southern mind and lifestyle. Tackling subjects from the big boned theory to politics, Tomlinson writes in a manner that feels much like being at a stand-up comedy show; I found myself laughing aloud quite often as I read this book. Many of the chapters seemto have little to do with their titles, something Tomlinson even admits to, but it is still a fun read. I had a great time reading this book and learning about all things Southern, from Yard Bubbas to Raging Inferno Syndrome. I look forward to reading Tomlinson’s other books and taking some time to peruse her website All Things Southern.

Shellie is the author of Lessons Learned on Bull Run Road, Twas the Night Before the Very First Christmas, Southern Comfort with Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, and the Penguin Group USA release, Suck Your Stomach In and Put Some Color On, voted Nonfiction Finalist of 2009 by SIBA Independent Booksellers Alliance.

When Shellie isn’t writing, speaking, taping her show, answering email or writing content for the next deadline, you can find her playing tennis with Dixie Belle, (the chocolate lab who thinks she is in charge of running Shellie’s life).

About Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy: The bestselling author of Suck Your Stomach In & Put Some Color On! returns with more helpful how-to’s and keen observations from Dixie.

Guided by principles from the ancient Belle Doctrine, the host of radio and television’s All Things Southern offers down-home advice on everything from health and fitness-managing thy caloric calculations without going Straight Running Crazy and surviving the Raging Inferno Syndrome (aka hot flashes)-to the Southern art of handling your man (Bubba Whispering). Whether giving business tips or debunking the Big Boned Theory, making political observations or celebrating the inevitable resurgence of big hair, Shellie is an adviser women can relate to and laugh with regardless of their age or which side of the Mason-Dixon they call home.
