In 2006, Abby Rike lost the life she knew and loved when her husband and two young children were killed in a car accident. Devastated and numb, she shut down. For nearly three years she walked through life like a spectre, present in body only. As she descended, so did her health.
Fortunately, Abby was not alone. She had loving parents, supportive friends, and a faith that continued to sustain her. Little by little she found the courage to return to life. Joining The Biggest Loser proved a catalyst for the physical and emotional changes she needed to make. In fact, against all odds Abby gained strength, courage, wisdom, and continued her steadfast relationship with God. Instead of anger, she found herself slowly but steadily healing. She lost a hundred pounds but gained hope.
In this riveting book, Abby tells her story–from her joyous life before the accident to the unbearable pain that followed it and her eventual emergence as a woman reinvigorated by her faith in God. Today Abby’s resilience and positivity are a testament to the power and importance of faith in the darkest hours.
This was a highly inspirational book. However, be prepared to cry! It was also very highly emotional. You can’t help to be swept up in the traumas that she has to undergo in her life.
However, through her family, friends, and faith, she makes it through it all.
I remember watching her on The Biggest Loser and seeing how much she truly pushed through it all. She is a true testament that you can overcome any adversity put in your way as long as you believe in yourself and believe that you can.
