Al Roker's aha! moment came a decade ago. He was closing in on 350 pounds when he promised his dying father that he wasn't going to keep living as he was. That led to his decision for a stomach bypass - and his life-changing drop to 190. But fifty of those pounds gradually crept back until he finally devised a plan, stuck to it, and got his life back. In this inspiring, candid, and often hilarious story of self-discovery, Al Roker reveals a side of his life that no one knows.

Al Roker is totally honest in describing his life-long battle with weight gain and yo-yo dieting. He finally managed to lose over one hundred pounds and keep it off, but only after realizing what it takes. This book is not a diet book and describes the process of stomach stapling. Even if this procedure is not an option, Mr. Roker truly understands the struggles of the overweight.

Funny, quite honest and heartbreaking. He doesn't connect the "closet eating" to past traumas although his struggle is quite horrendous!
