Summary The first grandchild born into his family in El Salvador, Alberto was showered with attention. Soon, though, he became known as "El Gordito," the little fat boy. By the age of seven, he weighed 120 pounds and his pediatrician had started him on a diet. By age nine he had tried ten different diets. His life became a vicious cycle of eating to excess, sneaking food and lying to himself and his parents; teased by peers and strangers, he ultimately turned into a recluse, addicted to food and television. From this low point, Hidalgo-Robert chronicles how he was able to take hold of his life, reinvent himself and become a model for other teenagers who are battling weight issues. This book offers a roadmap for living a healthy life and regaining self-respect and social acceptance. Each chapter contains "battling" tools, examples of good and bad behavior and typical self-deceptions in the war to conquer oneself and live a healthier life.--From publisher description.
