      In 2006, in the blink of an eye Abby's world went from having a loving husband, a beautiful three year old daughter, and a sweet 18 day old son to losing it all to a devastating accident that would drop the strongest person to their knees. For nearly three years Abby went through the motions of "life" in almost a robotic manner. Although family and friends, as well as a strong faith surrounded her, Abby still had a deeper need inside her that had her turn to food for comfort. In 2009 as she bega [...]

      The story of Abby Rike first caught my attention when I watched it unfold on the Biggest Loser television show. That was actually the first season that I watched the show, and Abby's story both broke my heart and inspired me. Her book was no different. I have to admit that by the end of chapter one I already had tears in my eyes, and by the end still more had been shed (and I think that my wife pretty much cried throughout the book!). Yet what I found to be a pleasant surprise about this book is [...]

    • ****Please note I received this book as a Giveaway*****First, I have to say I was absolutely stoked when I won this book. This was the first book I had ever won as a giveaway and one that I really wanted. I remember watching The Biggest Loser the season that Abby was on, and absolutely bawling when her interview aired, and she spoke about losing her family. I had the same thoughts as a lot of people in her life, "How do you manage to make it through the days after something like that happens?"R [...]

    • Abby's story touched me when she was on Biggest Loser so when I saw her book at Border's going-out-of-business sale I thought I would pick it up. I really had no great expectations for it, but it was a very well written book and her story is absolutely haunting. The loss of her young family is just gut-wrenching. I actually found myself laying awake at night feeling so sad for the death of her beloved husband and wonderful children. I don't know how anyone can not just survive but thrive after t [...]

    • A truly inspirational book. Losing her entire family in a car accident, Abby Rike takes the reader on her journey to find happiness after a devastating loss. She was also on the reality show, the Biggest Loser.

    • I wanted so much more from this book. I was expecting a story about 'how' she worked it out and 'how' she moved forward. Instead, the book is 'my life was wonderful, my family was perfect, my husband was terrific, our love was amazing, now read a flowery overly mushy love letter to prove it'd repeatd repeat. At the end of the book is a section of photocopies of the letters. Because we need to read them again in the original handwriting??? It feels so very contrived. Mrs. Rike would have benefite [...]

    • As a viewer of "The Biggest Loser", I connected with Abby Rike when she spoke of her journey of loss and hope. I purchased a copy of "Working it Out" and couldn't read it without tears, smiles, and inspiration. I became inspired by Abby after seeing how she moves forward after tragic loss. Not only are we both published authors, but we have other things in common. I related to a few issues she experienced in her grief because I lost my husband tragically after being married a short time. While n [...]

    • Quote: "While facing and telling the truth may be hard in the moment, it makes life easier in the long run. It's not about feeling bad about yourself or making it a sensitive issue. Simply come to grips with the fact(s"Quote: "Sometimes you can't wait until you want to make a change; sometime you just have to do it, and the feelings follow."Quote: "You can't sit back and be a victim, thinking that if only everone around you changed, life would be perfet. If yo don't like your circumstances, you [...]

    • This was a book I was kinda trying to avoid reading, since I knew how emotional it was going to be having been Mrs. Rike's student and having met her husband and daughter. The writing was amazing, especially since it incorporated letters. She was able to really portray the emotions she experienced and get the reader to feel the tragedy she went through. The only part I think she was a little weak on was explaining the transformation she went through after marrying Rick. I was able to be her stud [...]

    • Like her quote "What the caterpillar thinks is the end of the world, the butterfly knows is only the beginning." AnonymousAnd that fits her story for sure. Great to hear someone's story 1sthand how they held fast to their faith.Also liked p. 242 Finding the powerful person within you requires more than feeling. Sometimes you can't wait until you want to make a change; sometimes you just have to do it, and the feelings follow. More often than not, action preceeds feeling. I wanted to feel better, [...]

    • Very inspirational. I remembered her story from the Biggest Loser. It was certainly about more than just weight loss, and I appreciate how much of the backstory she gives. The focus of the book is not so much about biggest loser or weight loss as much as it is about finding a purpose again after a horrible tragedy. (Her husband, 6 yr old daughter, and 2 week old son were killed in a car wreck.) She discusses throughout the book how her faith in Christ helped her though all of it, which will like [...]

    • I am a lucky First Reads winner of this book - looking forward to receiving it and writing a review!Update - I just finished this book. I can't even imagine enduring what Abby Rike has, and t he fact that she has been able to not only survive but thrive is amazing. Don't expect to learn too much about "The Biggest Loser" as this was not the focal point of the book. Also, the author writes about her Christian faith heavily throughout the book, which may be inspirational to some readers, but a tur [...]

    • A friend and fellow TBL fan gave me this book. I started watching BL the season AFTER Abby was on, so I did not know her story. Someone commented that she was too cheerful hmmm that was an interesting comment, considering she talks about staying inside her house, keeps moving and switching jobs and loses most of her friends in the aftermath of the tragedy. I think she wrote this book from a place of healing and love and not a place of gnashing of teeth, although her journal entries (written in t [...]

    • I had to skip chapters of this book because it was slow moving and boring. I thought it was going to be about her weight loss efforts, but really it is a memoir about losing her family in a car accident. She spends way too much time on how great her life was before the accident trying to make us understand what she lost. The story got more interesting when it got to the part where she started losing weight and being on Biggest Loser. It seemed to me like in the end she became a different person, [...]

    • GoodReads needs a 4th category: "i started but will never finish this book." I can usually drag myself through a so-so book [i did it with Twilight!] but this book i can't imagine finishing. I am a Biggest Loser fan, and know Abby's story from the TV show, so when i saw this book, I thought I'd like it. But I found her telling of her story unrelatable. Her whole family is killed in a car accident [i'm not giving anything away; she shares this in the 1st chapter] and yet she continues to sound so [...]

    • This book tells a remarkable story of a comeback from unimaginable loss. She relied very heavily on her faith, which was interesting for me as someone who is an atheist, but something that I was totally unable to relate to. Then again, I could not relate to any part of her incredibly tragic story, but I found inspiration in her story of human triumph. This is the story of how everyday person heroically coped with more than her share of terrible luck and managed not to add herself to the list of [...]

    • It took me a long time to start this book, I wasn't ready to read it. But today, I was and I finished it in one day. Abby was a contestant on the Biggest Loser who lost her husband, five yr old daughter, and two and half week old son in a tragic car accident. This is her story about how she continues to go forward, which includes her journey to the Biggest Loser. Her story resonated with me so much. I couldn't even imagine the pain she has gone through, but I know through my own pain, you have t [...]

    • A moving & inspirational storyIt's difficult to come to terms with the grief that Abby suffered after losing her husband and two children in an auto accident. Abby displays strong courage and a firm belief in God. Losing her excess weight and becoming active were two key components toward keeping herself focused and not turning to bitterness and the belief that she was a victim. Her story inspired me to get on my running shoes!

    • This was an inspiring story but I wished it had been written a little differently. I would have liked to read more about her experience on Biggest Loser and less about her life before her tragic accident. I know that sounds a little calloused given what she went through and I understand that she probably wrote the book to aid in her grieving process but for me as a reader the first part was a bit redundant. But overall I enjoyed the book.

    • A beautiful story about over coming the hardest challenges in life with complete faith in God. Abby lost her husband, 2 week old baby and 6 yr old daughter in a car accident. Although her story is one of life shattering proportions her story before that was a love story and she shares letters they wrote and the love they shared. She went on to star in the weightloss show the Biggest Loser, where she reclaimed her self again!

    • Abby Rike is a true inspiration. After all she has been through, and reaching the lowest of the low points none of us wish to experience, she pulled herself up and chose to not just survive, but to live. I met Abby at our local Galesburg Healthy Woman event a few weeks ago and she has renewed my spirit to live and not just survive. Thanks Abby for all you do and for being that rock that we all know we can be! :)

    • This is an inspirational book that helps to provide the reader with the motivation to know that it is possible to lose weight. One thing that I am taking away from this book is when she talked about how she wished all obese people could spend one day in the body of a fit person and then they would change their lifestyles to make it happen. She is a very inspiring woman who has had to over come some terrible obstacles and is an inspiration to millions.

    • Just when you think you are having a bad day and don't have the resolve to get through it, read this book. The grace and amazing sense of faith and self carried Abby through one of the worst tragedies I can even imagine. I know her in "real life" and she is everything you read in this book and more. This book gives you hope when you feel like you cannot overcome the things that are happening to you personally.

    • This book could easily have been two. At 32, Abby Rike loses her husband, 5-yr-old daughter Macy and 18-day-old son Caleb in a car crash. As she moves forward in grief, she ends up on TV's "The Biggest Loser". Now, 5 years later, Abby tells her story from a place of peace and acceptance. I think I held my breath during the whole book.

      I was so moved by this book. It wasn't all about "weight loss" was about a woman finding a new normal after her world was shattered. Definitely worth reading and reminds us to be thankful for every moment. Abby's faith in God is amazing - I don't think I would have such Faith. It's rare & beautiful.

    • I am thrilled to be the first to review this book. I picked it up at the library this morning and just finished it. At a time in my life when stress and worry is getting the best of me, at a time I needed to "feel," Abby's story was there for me. Here is a woman who lost it all and found a way to live another day. Bravo Abby, bravo.

    • Reading this book hit home so closely when I learned she lost her Kindergartener and 2 week old children in a car wreck. See I was reading this book while sitting in carpool to pick up my Kindergartener with my 2 week old (and 3 year old) in the back seat. It made it that much more real to me and it makes her positive attitude that much more remarkable.

      I was touched by Abby's story. I had watched her on Biggest Loser and wondered how she has done. One thing I noted was how she talks about her loneliness in the years after her family was killed. She never mentions her church or church family. What was happening there? So good to see the gospel presented at the end. Well done, Abby!

    • Abby has always been one of my favorite contestants on The Biggest Loser (yes, I watch The Biggest Loser) and I was looking forward to reading her book, even though I knew it would be depressing. It seems weird to say, but I really enjoyed reading it. Even though it got a little preachy/religious for me at the end, I'm glad she wrote it and I'm glad I read it.

    • I loved this book. I didn't expect the faith based story but I loved it. Abby is such a breath of fresh air! True to her faith and true to herself with no excuses. Her story is heart wrenching and soul moving, leaving you wanting to be a better person. This book left me feeling a renewed faith and hope.
