For so many people, whether your addiction is to a substance or merely to a certain way of thinking or acting, a profound humbling occurs when you realize that your problem is bigger than you are. The terror of realizing, even dimly, that you have no control over a self-destructive pattern of behavior - that as much as you would want to, you simply cannot stop - can mark a crucial turning point in your life. At that point, you go in one of two directions: either way, way down, or way, way up....
This audio is for you if you know in your heart that you are an addict, and that you are powerless before your addictive behavior. As the title promises, Marianne Williamson looks at weight loss from a spiritual perspective, bringing you 30 lessons that can be done separately or in conjunction with any other serious spiritual path. These 30 lessons are completely separate from anything related to diet or exercise - they will retrain your consciousness in the area of weight in order to break the cycle of overeating, dieting, and shame that rules so many lives. Finally, Marianne has brought you what you’ve been waiting for: help to heal your addiction once and for all!

After purchasing the hardback I found myself distracted (although interested) and didn't get that far into it. Hearing it on Audible was so much better. Maybe because it's a different time in my life. After finding there's a direct link between being overweight and breast cancer (diagnosed Nov 2014) I was forever changed anyway...all things about me , as it turned out, had to be re-examined. I "went spiritual" and never looked back. It's only reasonable that I'd get back to Marianne Williamson, right? This is my first book of hers, however, for me. (Course in miracles coming up). My FAVORITE part is the prayer towards the end. Where I become light filled.
My journey thus far, has been wild. Beginning with Caroline Myss and Anita Moorjani as authors . I've "shed" 70 lbs without any diet. Marianne Williamson deals directly with the actual issues of weight and gives clear direction on what to do about it. Final results being weight lost and most importantly spiritual renovation/renewal. This book is perfectly timed now to let me know what I'm doing right and am inspired by the author to keep moving closer to God, ask for divine help and then accept it totally.
High recommendation for the serious minded . I wish you well.
Always loved this ladle's philosophies, so when I found out years ago that she was inspired by Oprah to compile her thoughts and experience about food obsession... I was in!!!
I have the book & followed it faithfully. I retired 20 pounds. Now I am looking & feeling much better.... I purchased the Audible book to remind & inspire me with the next 20 pounds so that I will be sleek & petite in my mid 60's & beyond.
Just what I was looking for to deal with the root cause of my overeating. A little "super-spiritual" but worth giving it your attention.
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.
I'm spiritual, not Christian. It would be nice if this wasn't written for people with less constricted beliefs.
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 💞
