I loved this book, she writes with such passion about her love for her ex husband and her child, she is the girl next door, you just want to go over and ring her door bell and have a cup of coffee with her. It is so nice to see that she kept her private life, "private" for so long. Her strength and love for her family kept her going. She is a very genuine woman. I really related to this book because of her constant battles with her weight, it was always up and down just like her life and so many of us others. She believes in marriage and only gave up when it came down to the nitty gritty, took her many years of ups and downs to finally reach the breaking point. I highly recommend this book, it only took me 2 days to read it! I couldn't put it down!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book,It was so well written I could feel her pain and her happiness. I do hope she puts out another book, so we can read what she left out of this one. I would like to hear how her life is progressing, both personally and with her weight loss.
If you are a Valerie Bertinelli fan, or a Van Halen fan, this book is quite an eyeopener.

I've never written a review that gets personal before, but because this is a motivational book with a subject very close to my heart, I decided it was appropriate.

As someone who has struggled with weight all her life, I've watched Valerie's weight loss with Jenny Craig with interest and looked forward to reading her book.

Valerie grew up with a poor body image, although in hindsight, she acknowledged her body was perfectly fine. She writes that she thought she was fat and ugly back when she acted on "One Day at a Time" and even took "Black beauties" (speed) to lose weight.

Valerie hit rock bottom when she watched herself in a TV movie, Claire, and describes herself as a "fat and ugly old woman". Valerie wrote that she felt miserable inside and out. "There is the weight you see when you weigh yourself in the morning and then there is the weight you carry around inside that makes your feet drag, your shoulders hunch and your eyes look down."

She knew about the Law of Attraction, and decided to apply it to her life. She literally prayed for a lightness of being.

Shortly thereafter, Jenny Craig called.

Reading her book was very odd for me, because I practice the law of attraction(as well as the placement of objects in my home and using the home's energy) and write about it in my book! I met my husband using the law of attraction, I have found great jobs...I have manifested all kinds of incredible things.

For some strange reason, I never thought to apply the law of attraction and use energy work to lose weight. I think feeling good about yourself--inside and out--is difficult when you are not happy about the way you look.

People who feel good about themselves glow.
