A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever

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....

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!

    "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.....

    "A Gift From The Universe"

    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.

    "Too Religous"
    What disappointed you about A Course in Weight Loss?

    I'm spiritual, not Christian. It would be nice if this wasn't written for people with less constricted beliefs.

    Story
    "21 Day Fix Extreme Meet ACIWLM"

    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 💞

    Story
    "Healing Yourself so the Real You Can Emerge"

    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.

    "Marianne really knows her stuff"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Course in Weight Loss to be better than the print version?

    I prefer audio because i tend to fall asleep alot while reading but with the audio I can plug it in while i am working out and it is fabulous.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like Mariannes way of relating to people, she really speaks to us not AT us.

    "Sorry...But It's A Non-Starter For Me!"

    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.

    "preachy-churchy"

    I should have realized, having heard a Marianne Williamson speech previously, that this would have strongly religious overtones. If you are comfortable with a more :"born again" type theology, this is for you. It was simply too preachy. "Women, Food and God" was much less preachy and seemed more substantial.
