I bought this book because I was a contestant for the Atlanta, Georgia version of The Biggest Loser with our local NBC station. I spotted it the day I was notified that I was one of 12 contestants, and knew I had to have it!
I didn't always watch The Biggest Loser show before, because it seemed like it was so far removed from what I could ever do, working out 6-8 hours a day with personal trainers at a beautiful spa-like setting. But we work out with a team trainer 2 days a week for an hour or so, and on our own for the other 4 or 5 days, which almost anyone could do.
Thanks to eating right, the tips in this book and moving more than I ever thought possible, so far I've lost 35 pounds and several inches in 6 weeks, and in a healthy way.
So much of losing weight is in your head, and my battle isn't over by a long shot, I started out at 275 pounds, but I'm making a good start!
I am also reading Shrink Yourself, which is a great title with double meaning, a therapist in a book with exercises and very insightful examples.
