A Surprise On My Doorstep

I wrote a little about emotional eating in an earlier post. Not ABOUT emotional eating just that I am an emotional eater. My SIL read that and quickly sent a few gifts to me to support me even more on this journey.

Here is what arrived:

Women Food and God:
An Unexpected Path to Almost Everything

The way you eat is inseparable from your core beliefs about being alive. No matter how sophisticated or wise or enlightened you believe you are, how you eat tells all. The world is on your plate. When you begin to understand what prompts you to use food as a way to numb or distract yourself, the process takes you deeper into realms of spirit and to the bright center of your own life. Rather than getting rid of or instantly changing your conflicted relationship with food, Women Food and God is about welcoming what is already here, and contacting the part of yourself that is already whole—divinity itself.

Breaking Free from Emotional Eating

Breaking Free From Emotional Eating teaches that there is an end to the anguish of compulsive emotional eating - and this book tells how to achieve it. Geneen Roth, who has brought understanding and acceptance to tens of thousands of readers, outlines a proven program for resolving the conflicts at the root of eating disorders. Using simple techniques developed in her highly successful seminars, she offers reassuring practical advice and many tools and strategies to help you break the binge-diet cycle forever.
Based on the principles taught in Geneen Roth's nationwide Breaking Free Workshops, it is a how-to program that works; a guide book to be used for daily support, direction and encouragement. This book gives tools you can use in your day-to-day life in your search for help with emotional overeating.

Summaries are from authors website
 I've taken a peek into both books and am very excited to read them. I think getting to the root of some issues is entirely key to overcoming the bondage of a lifetime of weight struggles. I also think that these books are EXACTLY what I need and PRECISELY the right time!

Thank you Ness for your ongoing love and support in so many ways! Thank you rooting me on in this journey and these fabulous resources! XOXO!!!
