The Mormon Dilemma: We can't drink. We can't smoke. But we can eat.... Ella Oliver finds herself avoiding mirrors while reading articles in women's magazines. Her husband Steve has just changed careers - from architect to mechanic - and he has other warning signs. To make matters worse, Ella has somehow changed dress sizes several times during their years of marriage, and the numbers aren't getting smaller. This time, she determines, her vague anxieties will lead to action. She will go to Pray Away Pounds, her ward's near-legendary weight-loss support group.... But what has Ella gotten herself into? Only the most delightful collection of well-meaning, hard-working, and deeply eccentric sisters and brothers in the gospel.
