A chubby little girl with blond hair, blue eyes, and ordinary looks, Victoria Dawson has always felt out of place in her family, especially in body-conscious Los Angeles. Her parents are disappointed by their daughter's looks. Later in life, the one thing Victoria knows is that she has to get as far away from home as possible and, after college in Chicago (which her parents disapprove of), she moves to New York City. There, Victoria finds joy and excitement as a high school teacher while waging war on her weight among the sleek and slinky at Manhattan's fitness clubs.Her lifeline to her family is through Gracie - though they can't be more different in looks, style, or social lives, the two sisters love each other unconditionally.
