Summary Holcombe chronicles how to transition from "the fat girl" to being a healthy, confident young woman. When she stepped onto her bathroom scale and "230" glared up at her, that number controlled her life... until one day she went for a walk that changed everything. Follow her battles against obesity, negative self-image, and peer ridicule as Holcombe follows a healthy diet and exercise routine, shedding the pounds without pills, trainers, or surgery.
