When Ali Vincent was selected to be a contestant on the hit NBC show The Biggest Loser, her weight was at an alltime high of 234 pounds-and her life had reached an all-time low. Like millions of Americans, Ali struggled for years with poor eating habits, family problems, stress, and low-self-esteem. After years of being afraid, ashamed, and unhappy, she resolved to change her life, once and for all- to lose weight, get healthy, and pursue her dreams. Before she was even offered a spot on The Biggest Loser campus, Ali made up her mind that she was going to not only drop the weight- but win the competition. In her bedroom at The Biggest Loser ranch, Ali rang a little bell she kept on her bedside table each night before she went to sleep and again when she awoke in the morning, repeating the phrase that had become her mantra- Believe it, be it. Seven months later, she emerged from the grueling competition as its first-ever female champion, claiming the title, the grand prize and, most of all-winning back her life. In Believe It, Be It, Ali shares for the first time her intimate story of personal and physical transformation and provides a rare glimpse inside life at the famous Biggest Loser ranch. Ali also shares the weight-loss strategies, eating habits, and workout tips that helped her lose-and keep off-more than 100 pounds. For anyone who has ever battled with weight loss or struggled to accept themselves for who they are, Ali Vincent's story provides hope that a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life is within reach. It all begins with believing that it's possible. Believe it, and be it.

I just happened to come across this book on the shelf at the library. Not knowing who Ali was or her journey back to health, I did find it an honest and inspiring book. It was an easy read and I read it rather quickly. If you are looking for a pick-me-up kind of book and you like the Biggest Loser, take a look at this story.

I jut finished reading this book and I think she was very inspiring for all of us women who are overweight and have tried every diet that has come along...
She gave some good advice on how The Biggest Loser show changed her life and how she is able to keep it off since winning the title. I loved reading the behind the sceens information that we don't see when we watch the show.
