Publisher's Summary

After undergoing gall bladder surgery at age 23, Jennette Fulda decided it was time to lose some weight. Actually, more like half her weight. At the time, Jennette weighed 372 pounds.
Jennette was not born fat. But, by fifth grade, her response to a school questionnaire asking What would you change about your appearance? was "I would be thinner.” Sound familiar?
Half-Assed is the captivating and incredibly honest story of Jennette’s journey to get in shape, lose weight, and change her life. From the beginning - dusting off her never-used treadmill and steering clear of the donut shop - to the end with her goal weight in sight, Jennette wows listeners with her determined persistence to shed pounds and the ability to maintain her ever-present sense of self.

Would you try another book from Jennette Fulda and/or Teri Clark Linden?

No for both.

The writer is very into herself and jumps around the book with present and past events.

She's also a hypocrite throughout the story.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jennette Fulda again?

No... She has this really weird question and raise in the pitch on certain things that are odd.

Once I went to the store? (high rise in tone)


Reminds me of "Once in band camp...?

What else would you have wanted to know about Jennette Fulda’s life?

Maybe a little more about how she lost it...instead of a "I bet you're wondering how I did it. Well, I'm not telling." Humph ok...then why did you write the book.

How her head got so big considering what she went through.

Any additional comments?

I think the worst about the book would not only be he hypocritical aspect of many parts like other peoples weight and looks, not to even mention what they wear. (no wonder she was so paranoid about others looking at her!)

I also think the book actually dragged on and she definitely repeats herself more times that not.
