Julie Hadden, one of the most successful and memorable contestants ever on NBC's The Biggest Loser, struggled with her self-worth and her size for years. At age thirty-four she found herself at a crossroads: would she settle for staying 'big' the rest of her life, or would she insist on making big changes instead? Reality-TV fans know which path Julie chose that day. When she stepped on the scale at the show's season-four finale, revealing she had lost an astounding 45 percent of her body weight, she simultaneously stepped into the world's collective heart.

I thought the book was entertaining. She was able to use humour and I thought that as a reader and a fan of the show at one time, that I got to know who she was. She also through in some behind the scene comments about Biggest Loser which were interesting. So, although a good read, I did not find it motivating for myself in the effort to lose weight or to gain 'my' worth but was more of a read about someone elses. I suppose that would help some people in their quest for being healthier....but I don't live on a fitness ranch, I have to work 8 hours a day and then go home to be a mom and wife so can't quite squeeze in that 7 hours of fitness/day. Guess I couldn't relate...still a good read though. I give it 3/5.
