No More Expectations

Before the weight loss, Brianya Johnson was all about getting to “I do” by any means necessary.

Dumped by her boyfriend, Brianya decided to re-evaluate her life. In the process, she learned two valuable things about herself: 1) her self-esteem is virtually non-existent, and 2) she’s an emotional eater. Sailing on anger and sheer determination, Brianya decides that change is long overdue. She takes a vow of celibacy, swears off men and dating, and enlists the aid of a trainer to help whip her body into shape.

That was 206 pounds ago, before she knew what lay beneath all those layers of bad food choices.

At 147 pounds, Brianya’s body has transformed into something she never envisioned, and the men are coming out of the woodwork, testing her patience and her resolve. Monticello Belvoir, Endo Jamison, and Edward Hollister are all solid men with loads of potential. But, can they handle Brianya’s friends without benefits rule? Add to the mix Brianya’s ex beau, Darnell Jones, who wants his shot at a second chance. As if that isn’t enough, to her detriment, Brianya finds out that one of her suitors isn’t the nice guy he makes himself out to be.

With her heart pulling her in one direction and her family and friends pushing her in another, Brianya turns to the one thing that has never failed her: food. When all is said and done, will the years of hard work have been for nothing?
