This book is changing my life. My eyes have been opened to years of self-inflicted pain and rejection. God is healing me and I am learning to love myself. Thank you for this book!
I very much enjoyed the book.Loved that it wasMarianne's voice.
Many good points in the book but the Love for yourself is central...and Love for God. But so often people try to make overweight a sedentary issue when most times its spiritual,psychological,chemical then physical.She does an amazing job at bring up main points in a woman's life that are not usually talked...rape,major events in life,attitude etc that help keep the weight on no matter what you do and science is echoing this in alot of research.A must have if you want to become COMPLETELY whole.
I found this book quite by accident in the middle of the night. Still not sure how I found it but so glad I did. I almost didn't listen to it because of the dedication but once I got past that I realized it definitely came to me at just the right time and I do think it was a spiritual gift.
I listen to it almost daily, sometimes in the car and sometimes at work with my Bluetooth. It's an approach to weight loss I hadn't considered before and I've recently found myself on a spiritual journey and find it somehow comforting, inspirational, and relaxing to listen to. I also purchased the hard copy just for a visual reference of some of the suggested exercises.
As I embark on my 21 Day Fix Extreme Fitness Journey I believe going through these lesson in conjunction with the program will help me immensely. I had so many AhHa that's I'm now forgiving myself for thinking that my journey to my ideal weight of 143lbs would be easily accomplished without God's help. I've had this book for at least 3/4 years and I know within the depths of my soul that this was the right time to have read it, and now as I reread it slowly or rather as instructed I am reaping all of its benefits 💞
This audiobook was a real disappointment. It borders on sexist and male-bashing. The author has written better books than this one.
This book is incredible. It shows you that being overweight is as much a result of your thinking as your physical actions. It treats yo-yo dieting and binge eating as symptoms of a deep disconnection from our beautiful, true selves. This book is loving and empowering and kind. Anyone who struggles with their weight should buy it. It will radically change your perspective of your body and finally show you how to shed the unwanted weight.
I have loved Marianne since she wrote her first book and uttered her first spiritual word.......I love everything she has written, but not so much this book.....while I love her style of reading, it's a big draw for me to her audio books, I found this book quite boring, both for content---seemed to be more for people who need to loose a LOT of weight and who have no clue about anything to do with weight loss---and for her reading style of this material---I just didn't like the reading of this book.......sorry Marianne, I still love you, but looking for more of your real spirituality books.....
This approach to weight loss seems narrow sighted and oversimplified. It also has significant religious overtones... not that that is bad, I just think the reader should be fore-warned about the approach the author takes. As a physician I am sure some of my patients would find the book useful, but many have issues far beyond the narrow scope taken by the author.
Marianne seems like a lovely lady. I'm writing this review to those of you who wanted some real tips and tricks to help with weight loss. As I listened to chapter after chapter it just felt like she filled it with self-love babble and telling us how beautiful we are (what if a man read this?). Make no mistake, this is a very spiritual and religious book. Much of the advice is making lists, asking for it to be healed and visualizing. To be fair, she did give me a few valuable tips that I could use in my Theta healing that did help me with my hunger but much of the book felt like filler.
