Publisher's Summary

When celebrated radio personality and columnist Kerre Woodham found herself 40, overweight, and depressed she faced two choices - do nothing and probably not make it to 50 or do something and get her life back. Fortunately for all of us, and especially those women who like to eat and dress well, she decided to fight back. Leaving kilos of herself and two bra sizes behind 'somewhere in the Waitakeres', she embarked on a fitness and training regime, with a goal to complete the Auckland marathon.

To the laugh out loud delight and support of her listeners, she battled her way to fitness and achieved her goal - then decided that she didn't want to stop. With the 2008 New York marathon in her sights, Short Fat Chick documents her life changing decision to get fit and stay fit, eat what she wants and still wear a size 12 dress. With insightful comments and fitness and training tips from her personal trainer, Gaz Brown, Kerre tells it like it is and takes the listener on a journey of self-discovery and self-discipline we can all admire and emulate.

    Story
    "A fun, entertaining read."
    What does Kerre Woodham and Gaz Brown bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The book was quite entertaining and Kerre's unique sense of humor made me laugh outloud numerous times. The way she says things in her delivery is something the reader would miss. I really liked that Gaz gave his perspective as well. I listened while I ran which gave me something interesting to listen to and some motivation at the same time.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was very entertaining and I enjoyed it. I loved Kerre's sense of humor but at times feel like the book sort of got lost and wasn't moving forward. There is much more that goes in to running a marathon and in some ways she seemed to think it was no big deal. Perhaps modesty prevented her from really celebrating it, but I found myself celebrating more than she did. I would liked to have had Kerre talk a little bit more about what it meant to her personally to have completed a Marathon. I enjoyed her sense of humor and how she was willing to look at herself but at times found her to be a little too self-deprecating, almost as if running an entire marathon was no big deal at all. It is a big deal to move from coach potato to marathon runner in such a short time and I'd like to have heard a little bit more narration during her first training runs and her first marathon itself. I think Gaz's input was about right, I really enjoyed hearing her story from his perspective. I do recommend this book to anyone who is interested in making a change in their life, it's fun and entertaining while at the same time you realize that our mind can sometimes be our biggest obstacle.
