I Am NOVA’s Strongest Woman

I Am NOVA’s Strongest Woman

I’d like to start this story back in 2010, when I weighed 336lbs after the birth of my 3rd child. After a lifetime of morbid obesity, the 3rd pregnancy had been extremely difficult.

People just can’t stop cooing and gushing over our new baby…. I mean ebook. But seriously, writing a book sometimes really does feel like giving birth.
