Mandisa celebrates success, weight loss

Former American Idol finalist Mandisa is celebrating her success and her 80-pound weight loss.  She has a second album out and a new book that talks about her journey from hopeful to superstar.

The book is titled, "Idol Eyes, My New Perspective on Faith, Fat & Fame."  She credits counseling for her weight loss and says she fights her food addiction one day at a time: "Having Simon thrust me out into the public with my weight, I think it's given me a much stronger story, and I feel like I can say that if I'm able to do it, then anybody can because people saw me at my heaviest."

The 32-year-old California native dropped most of her weight while working on her second album, "Freedom."
