The Biggest Loser was just the beginning. Every week, more than nine million viewers watch The Biggest Loser. The goal for the sixteen contestants is to shed the highest percentage of body weight and capture the grand prize waiting at the end of the grueling course. As Michelle Aguilar discovered, overcoming her own misconceptions about herself was the greatest challenge of all. What do you have to lose? In Becoming Fearless, you will discover Michelle’s true secret to losing half her body weight and gaining back her life. Along the way, you may discover that you have a lot to lose as well—whether it’s fear, weight, or insecurities that keep you from living fully. As Michelle writes, “I began to realize how much of my past had been spent … allowing my fears to immobilize me instead of choosing to jump.”
