About This Book
Not just another fitness book
"In 1996, I got scared. I went to the doctor
and learned that I was no longer fat, I was 'morbidly obese.' This was no
longer about a dress size; this was life and death. And so I began an
extraordinary journey from being a 330-pound sedentary woman who ate five or
six doughnuts for breakfast to losing 130 pounds, getting fit enough to
compete in the World Ironman Championship Triathlon in Hawaii, and becoming
the Official Chub Club Coach for The Rosie O'Donnell Show. While I might not
fit the conventional image of an athlete or fitness expert, I am healthy and
happier than I've ever been. I wrote this book for people who, like me, have
tried every program from A to Z- diets, gyms, trainers -and are looking for
real and realistic results. You Don't Have to Be Thin to Win tells my story,
illustrates my program (the only one that has ever worked for me), and shows
you how you, too, can win your health and life back."

(From the back cover of the Book)
In January 1996, Judy Molnar was six foot one, weighed 330 pounds, and was a
size 26W. She didn't own a bike or a swimsuit. At her annual physical, after
hearing the doctor's usual sermon about her weight, she accidentally saw the
phrase "morbidly obese" written on her chart. Only then did Judy realize
that she had to take some action or she might not be around for her next
yearly exam. And on that day she set out to learn how to eat, exercise, and
get into shape.
Having tried all of the traditional starve-yourself,
go-for-the-burn programs that just left her drained and in pain (and
ultimately made her eat more), Judy knew that she was going to have to
create a program that worked for her. Over the course of two and a half
years, through working with coaches, nutritionists, and trainers, she
developed an incredible program that has helped her lose 130 pounds and 12
clothing sizes. In 1999, she even completed one of the most strenuous
sporting events: the World Ironman Triathlon Championship in Hawaii.
Television host Rosie O'Donnell heard about Judy's commitment to a healthy
lifestyle and invited her to come on the show to share her story. Rosie was
so inspired by her message-"Eat less and move more" -that she created a
position for Judy on her show by making her the Official Chub Club Coach.
You Don't Have to Be Thin to Win is Judy's special recipe for health and
fitness. She shows you everything from how to buy sneakers and how to find a
way to move that works for your body and your time constraints to how to get
through a grocery store and come out with foods that will make you a winner.
And Judy is inspiring: Even if you feel that getting your body in shape is
impossible, her story and many of the poignant success stories from her work
as the Official Chub Club Coach will get you off the couch and moving.
Judy's story and this program demonstrate that anyone- no matter what size,
shape, or age- can lose weight and become healthy to enjoy a richer, fuller,
and more active life.
