Mario Colaoabout this book: I've Said It All Before, bottom line, is about the journey that led me to obesity, addiction, and the night that changed it all. This book answers every question about my weight gain, and my eventual 220 lb weight loss, and also, how I was able to quit smoking cold turkey. It's self-help, motivation, and my story. It took me less than a year to write it, and really, the hardest part about the entire thing was deciding just HOW honest I should be about what I've been through. But, in the end, I decided to put all my pain onto the pages, so that we could relate in a way that maybe you haven't with others before.
The book is conversational. It's down-to-earth, serious, funny, and always honest. It takes you through the many mental ups and downs of what an addicted person goes through, but it's never preachy. It was written to sound the way you would speak to your best friend. No fear, just two people having a chat.
The title is in reference to excuses. I've Said It All Before is all about the lies I used to tell myself and to others, because when I hear them said by other people now, I think to myself "Yeah, I've said it all before."
Excuses are always the foundation of a building of mediocrity. My book can help you see things in a way that you haven't yet. A way that won't make you feel attacked or belittled.
I wanted to write this book with the intention of connecting with others like me, who have felt alone, down, or swamped with the mistakes of the past. I wanted to show people that they could come back from anything, if they truly wanted it bad enough. My feeling was that if one person's life could benefit from my mistakes, and my eventual triumph, that it did it's job.
I promise, whether you want to change, or you already have, this book can relate to you in many ways, simply because it's never condescending, and it's always from the heart. Check it out, and hey, let's have ourselves a little chat.
