Two things I learned from this book:
1. Almost all women struggle with body issues and we are very similar in this struggle.
2. Celebrities live a very different life.
In one sense listening to Valerie's book was like listening to myself or my best friend complain about weight frustrations. On the other hand, she has Jillian Michael's trainer whipping her in to shape and her job was pretty much to get in shape for this commercial, so she had a lot more time than the everyday person has to devote to it. She says she didn't and complains about her lack of time, but I doubt she understands what a "normal" person's life is like just how I don't understand what a "celebrity's" life is like.
But I do love how she focuses on how hard maintenance is and why it is important. I'm glad she doesn't make it seem easy. I'm glad to know she has a lot of the same struggles we all face. Overall I enjoyed it. It wasn't life changing or anything, but it was enjoyable.
I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
