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!
I am really enjoying this Course as part of my spiritual journey and my quest to allow my body freedom forever from compulsive dieting and overeating. I have, it seems, been on a lifelong journey to "get skinny," and though I gave up diets years ago, I still struggle with fear-based overeating. In my heart I always knew that my extra pounds around my mid-section were due to a spiritual dis-ease, rather than anything I was or wasn't doing in the physical world (I am a very active dancer and teacher who carries about 20 lbs. of extra fluff around the middle). I have found much comfort and catharsis in Ms. Williamson's prayers and journaling lessons. She is helping me face the fear of other people and of life that underlies my use of food as a pacifier. In my opinion, one does not have to be Christian to enjoy this program; however, one does have to be open to the concept of surrender to Spirit, much as in a 12-step program, which is what I am finding particularly inspiring and so different from other weight-loss efforts I've made. Overall, this audiobook has very much inspired and comforted me in my ever-deepening spiritual quest to live free from fear and in Love.

I thought the book had some helpful ideas, but would be better used in printed format. The worksheet pages are repetitive being read out loud, and would be hard to follow unless you quickly write them as she speaks them.
My main complaint was that the author reads this SO fast. I found that the speed, and her dramatic inflections, distracting and at times unpleasant.

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 💞

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.
