When the father of her newborn walked out with no warning, Mercado was overwhelmed. How could she take care of a child when she could barely care for herself? Her journey included three husbands, three divorces, three children, and years of abuse, infidelity, broken promises, and sleepless nights. Her weight ballooned to 400 pounds. Yet she never, ever gave up. Despite the pain, the rejection, and the disappointment, there were small victories and successes. Each one gave her the strength to keep on going. Eventually, she found the courage to take control of her life, lost weight, and found the life she's always wanted. Here she shares her journey to a life worth fighting for. -- adapted from jacket
