I would recommend this book to ANYBODY who struggles with sugar and or alcohol, or know somebody who does.
The author tells her real experiences in giving up sugar. She was all the way up to 430 pounds. This book really speaks to me, and motivates me to do what I need to do in order to live a complete life.
She reads the story so well. Excellent performance!!
Yes!! And then I want to listen again and again.
Get this book!!!!!
I love this book & I am grateful that I "stumbled" upon it. So many things that were said really resonated with me to the point that I now have more hope than I've ever had for my healthy lifestyle/weight loss journey. If you're truly sick & tired of being sick & tired like I was, then this is the book to read. It's thought provoking message is the catapult we all need to put faith into action in order to see our hopes & dreams come to pass.
I did struggle to finish at times. The author made it seem that all she had to do was pray for her food addiction to be gone and God gave her the power to resist. if it was that easy for her- great! it has not been that easy for the majority of us.
I really enjoyed this book. It helped me to learn alot about myself. I think this book is geared towards people who are extremely overweight like Teresa used to be. Well I am not. I am 5'4" 26 yrs old and weigh just under 150 pounds. I am about 20 pounds heavier now than I was before I had my son. This book helped me to realize that I do have an addiction to sugar and that I can overcome it. Even though I am not in a life threatening situation right now, I know I can get into that situation pretty easily by continuing down this path. I learned that leaning on God is going to be the only way that I can do this. There is just so much I learned from this book. What I want people to know is that you can read this book no matter how much you weigh and you will learn about God's love and Grace and how to overcome an addiction to sugar.
Although it was sincere and I could relate to many of her struggles, I was very put off by the constant references to Christianity.It's not that I was totally surprised at references to God as it's in the title, but rather that I felt bombarded and it became distracting. I wish I had known the heavy religious emphasis as I would not have purchased the book. If you are comfortable with a very faith based book then you will likely find it a more comfortable experience.
It did sound like the author was telling her story although it was through another person/narrator.
Somewhat. But not really a new message.
