Editorial Review

Product Description
I've learned never to let momentary fear stand in my way. There are no excuses. I've learned that power is sexy. So is confidence in yourself.

Patrika Darbo, the popular star of Days of Our Lives and the woman who TV Guide calls the "full-figured bitch goddess" of daytime television, has broken the size barrier and shattered the stereotype that heavy people are doomed to unhappy lives -- personally or professionally. Here Patrika shares her life story, writing with her heart on her sleeve about her hard-won victories as she offers advice -- not for losing weight, but for gaining confidence, a winning attitude, and a positive approach to life.

Patrika doesn't ask anyone to change but simply to celebrate who they really are. Patrika herself wasn't always self-confident and savvy to the ways of Hollywood and the real world. Over the years, she's often been up and down on the scale; yet through all the diets and binges she's never lost sight of her dreams and has never let momentary fear stand in her way.

She's the first to admit that issues of self-esteem go along with being big, but she's learned how to move beyond them and has never allowed conventional notions of beautylimit her or tell her what her life should be.

No matter who you are or what size you're not, you can be beautiful, confident, and sexy. As Patrika takes you through her life story, she offers advice for living out loud and great pointers for making everyday exciting -- from the set of Days of Our Lives to the bedroom (or kitchen, or living room, or laundry room). Patrika encourages and inspires women of all sizes to remember the best of who they are.

2-0 out of 5 stars Get Real Patrika
Patrika could have penned a really great book, but instead she seemed to think she is all that and a much bigger celebrity than she really is. Had she just written a book with insights into what it's like to be a plus size actress without all the tons of personal who cares biographical crap and armchair psychology I really don't think she's appropriate to spew it really might have been fab. Instead it's a like a fat girl cheer but not from a real live like you and me fat girl, it's from a fat girl on her own pedestal (but who wear Cherokee?!) Read Camryn Manheim's memoir instead, it's MUCH better and she's much more true to life even though she is rightfully a much bigger deal than Patrika! Trust me, I've read all the fat girl memoirs!

2-0 out of 5 stars left me cold
People who endured bad childhoods tend to either make the mistake of thinking that NOBODY in the world had it as bad as they did or they make the mistake of thinking that EVERYBODY is just as messed up as they are. Ms. Darbo takes the second road and it got really very tiresome. I've given this book away twice and got it back both times.

4-0 out of 5 stars kiddo keeps scarfing it
I read this book because I a long time viewer of Days of our Lives, but haven't had the time to watch recently.Any large woman who gets popular is somebody I want to read about.After reading the trial of a woman who is large, but paid her dues I felt refreshed.This book is funny, with advice.It may not be advice you could use, but its there, with the message of "large woman like sex too."

Then when I tiredly decided to have a yard sale to get rid of my stuff, this book was on the "go" stack.Until that is my 17 year old saw it, grabbed it and hid it in her room.

5-0 out of 5 stars I Loved This Book!
"365 Glorious Nights of Love and Romance" is inspiring and touching, but also humorous, sexy and a lot of FUN! I highly recommend it. As someone who has dealt with weight issues my whole life-I could identify with so much of what Patrika Darbo was saying. It made me realize you can't just sit back and let life pass you by. You've got to get out there and make the most of everyday-no matter what your size!
I also love that it is written so that it feels like Patrika is talking directly to you. It was EXCELLENT! You SHOULD read this book. ... Read more
