Overview

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.

Julie's experience on The Biggest Loser helped birth her new physique, but the transformation went far deeper than that. From displeasure to contentment, from indulgence to self–control, from shame to self–confidence every step along renovation’s path, Julie sensed that God was hard at work.

Relying on her classic humor and penetrating candor, Julie offers readers of all shapes and sizes an intimate portrayal of a once–fat woman who sweated and slogged her way toward thin. Additionally she answers frequently asked questions about her weight loss and being a contestant on The Biggest Loser and provides a sampling of her favorite healthy recipes and sample workouts from her current trainer.

In a book that marries introspection with inspiration and teachable moments with rare, behind–the–scenes details about one of the hottest shows on TV, Fat Chance not only will endear readers to the author’s firsthand experience, but will inspire them to make healthy changes of their own.
