Wake Up! You're Probably Never Going to Look Like That: How to be Happier, Healthier and Imperfectly Fit

Atypical fitness guru Michelle Pearl has a message for all those who have suffered with ongoing weight problems: “You are not weak, losing weight has nothing to do with willpower, and you really can be happier, healthier and imperfectly fit.” The foreword for the second edition of this well-received book was written by Kai Hibbard, the 3rd season runner-up contestant on NBC’s The Biggest Loser.


“Finally! A book that actually says, you’re probably never going to look like those people on TV, and describes in detail how to be happier, healthier, and IMPERFECTLY fit. It’s about time! I, for one, agreed with this author from the word go.” Amy Lignor

“The author is a former large woman that did the ride on the up-and-down weight elevator several times before she was able to stabilize her weight at what is most likely her best fit. She acknowledges how difficult it has been; in many ways the greatest hurdle has been self-acceptance. Furthermore, you must do it all slowly, ignoring the people that are yelling, “Be quick, be quick!” 5 out of 5 stars Charles Ashbacher; Top Amazon.com Book Reviewer

“I can honestly say that I have never been more impressed with a weight loss book. Excellent book.” Sandra Heptinstall; Whispering Winds Book Reviews

“Encouraging readers to find their own realistic body image and shoot for that, “Wake Up!” is a solid and much needed read for those who are trying to get in shape only to be discouraged by the media blitz.” 5 out of 5 stars Midwest Book Review

“WOW- talk about an anti-be perfect book! This book is like sitting down and dishing with your girlfriend you haven’t seen in 3 years! Michelle lays out a VERY simple diet and exercise plan that ANYONE can follow, including healthier choices at fast food restaurants (cause sometimes you HAVE to eat out!). 5 out of 5 stars Nicole Henke, Bless Their Hearts Mom Book Reviews

“Whether we are dealing with the issue of weight personally or know someone who is, this is a book that we all should take the time to read.” First edition named one of The Top 25 Summer Reads of 2010 by C.A. Webb, Conversations Book Club
