Publisher's Summary

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!

    "Not a Book For Men"

    This audiobook was a real disappointment. It borders on sexist and male-bashing. The author has written better books than this one.

    "She has written many better books....."

    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.....

    "Beautiful"

    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!

    "Powerful,Spiritual yet very practical"

    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.

    "Pleasantly surprised ~ great spiritual journey!"

    I was very l pleasantly surprised by the soulful journey the author takes into the psyche & potential deep-rooted causes of overeating. The book offers very helpful ideas on how to free ones self from the root causes of overeating. I'm definitely going to relisten to try to get it on a deep emotional level. The author does à superb job reading. I definitely recommend this book highly!
