Goodreads asked Mika Jolie:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Mika Jolie The Scale was loosely based on my best friend and myself when it comes to self image and accepting ourselves as we are. I gained a lot of weight during my pregnancies. From someone who was always athletic and small frame, that was very hard for me.
