When AJ Rochester is singled out as the ideal candidate for a television show on obesity, she is at first appalled and then resolved. Enough is enough. She vows to lose 40 kilos -not because she yearns to become a pretzel, but so she can keep up with her little boy and turn her life around at last. But after years of trying and failing, AJ knows she needs a miracle to drop eight dress sizes so she volunteers to be a human guinea pig and record her weekly progress in front of a camera for a television program on body image. In CONFESSIONS AJ shares her incredible journey, from her first close encounters with a nutritionist, personal trainer and psychologist to overcoming an early cataclysmic fall off the wagon - waking up in hospital with a broken leg after downing her first cocktail in weeks on an empty stomach - and the triumph of shedding that first kilo. The result is a funny, insightful and inspiring account of a woman who lost more than half her body weight without losing her sense of humour - and discovered a whole new life.
