"Not just inspirational but revelational!
Not motivated by power, money or fame, this true life story details the metamorphosis of a man overcome by food addiction, hard life history, bad habits, and self-isolation, into a man willing to ask for help, admitting his shortcomings, making a plan, holding himself accountable, and ultimately running a marathon and losing over 135 pounds in ONE CALENDAR YEAR."

"Awesome journey of struggle and triumph! What an awesome written experience of overcoming the greatest adversity and being born again physically and spiritually. I absolutely love this book, and appreciate gaining an understanding of what Trent went through in his battle of change. We all have our own struggles.

"Trent tells the raw truth about his battle with food addiction. He does not mince words. His story is plain and simple,honest and insightful, touching and motivating. Battling addiction is a daily fight. Inner desire helped him get started on his journey. He used obriety, support, and accountability to build upon his inner desire. Success was his result."

"Wow. Trent shares his story in a real, open, honest way. He doesn't gloss over the struggles of during his journey, yet he leaves the reader with a sense of hope and the idea that what he accomplished could be possible for the reader too. The concept of changing one's physical circumstance along with an emotional and spiritual makeover, is powerful. I found a great sense of encouragement and inspiration in this story."
