The subtitle of A.J. Rochester's book is How I dropped 8 dress sizes and took my life back. The memoir was my latest audio book and I chose it because I'm trying to lose weight myself and I thought it would inspire me. I enjoyed it and it did.
A.J. goes from being an obese and unhealthy woman to being a size 12 running addict. That's gotta be inspirational. She's 32 years old and an Australian comedian and performer. In fact, she lost all the weight 'in public', as part of a tv show.
Her story is realistic and has its wise moments, as well as its funny moments. Being funny is what she does, after all. I liked it, but I think you'd only enjoy it if you're also trying to lose weight. I'm sure all the 'lessons learned' by the author are simply common sense to those without weight issues.
