WHAT IT WON'T AND WILL

Thankfully, this book does not lay out a new, miracle program or wonder diet, or give you any amazing, fat-burning exercises, or even regale you with inspirational stories.

Better…

• What it will do is give you a way to keep your resolutions-weight loss and otherwise;
.
• It is about stopping that draining inner struggle: the pushing and then rebelling;
.
• Yes, releasing the root cause of your Inner Resistance

LOOKING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION

Each year, we spend tens of billions of dollars on losing weight: we ride bikes that go nowhere and climb stairs to the same place; we join gyms, sign up for programs and buy DVD's; we follow fad after method after plan and even resort to surgery.

So why aren't we the land of the fit, home of the trim? In fact, sixty-eight percent of us are still overweight or worse.

The problem is that each new beginning so sadly comes with the end included; oh, we feel excited because it is fun to imagine how we will be looking and feeling, how others will notice and even be impressed; it can even feel good to start the actual exercising and dieting.

And most of all, we are very, very determined.

The sad part comes when our enthusiasm begins to dim; but that's no problem-no pain, no gain, right?-so we push a bit, and then find ourselves having to push harder because the questions grow more insistent:

It's time to exercise, now? AND, I can't eat until when? AND, No desert? Again?

But we keep pushing because we want it so badly-pushing and pushing until finally we end up pushing back, letting it all go, along with our bodies. Some of us even dive back into the worst possible foods and the best possible comfort; and of course, we feel disappointed, even guilty and disgusted with ourselves.

For us, exercise and dieting have become an endless, pointless cycle of failure.

Why?

REVERSE THY GAZE

We keep searching for that next miracle diet, wondrous program or hi-tech machine, while each time hoping, praying, it will finally give us some control over our weight; but it rarely does-because the answer is NOT OUT THERE.

It never was.

Making changes on the outside can only change us TEMPORARILY; this is why those previous weight-loss "miracles" did not keep working.

Permanent change always BEGINS ON THE INSIDE.

SO, what awesome change within us will make all the difference?

It is releasing that Inner Resistance most of us know all too well. Without it, losing weight (and keeping any other resolution) becomes easier.

Releasing your Resistance is what this book is all about.

Welcome to KindleBoards, and congratulations on the book! :)

This is just a friendly reminder that KindleBoards is a Readers and Kindle Fan forum. Authors are always welcome to post anywhere but, as you browse the 'boards, please keep in mind that self-promotion, of any sort, is ONLY allowed here in the Book Bazaar.

A brief recap of our rules follows: (Note that this doesn't mean you've done anything wrong; we just want you to have a ready reference, so post this note in every thread. :) )

--Please bookmark this thread (using your browser's bookmark/favorite function) so you can update it as we ask that authors have only one thread per book and add to it when there is more information. You may start a separate thread for each book (or you may have one thread per series of books, or one thread for all of your books, it's your choice).

--We invite you to use your book cover as your avatar and have links to your book and website in your signature. Instructions are posted here

--While you may respond to member posts to your thread at any time, you may only bump your thread (back-to-back posts by you) once every seven days. Once you've responded to a member, that resets the clock to zero and you must wait seven days to post, unless another member posts before then.

--We ask that Amazon reviews not be repeated here as they are easy to find at your book link. Also, full reviews from other sites should not be posted here, but you may post a short blurb and a link to the full review instead.

--Although self-promotion is limited to the Book Bazaar, our most successful authors have found the best way to promote their books is to be as active throughout KindleBoards as time allows. This is your target audience--book lovers with Kindles! Please note that putting link information in the body of your posts outside the Book Bazaar constitutes self promotion; please leave your links for your profile signature that will automatically appear on each post. For information on more ways to promote here on KindleBoards, be sure to check out this thread:
Authors: KindleBoards Tips & FAQ.

All this, and more, is included in our Forum Decorum. Be sure to check it from time to time for the current guidelines and rules.

Thanks for being part of KindleBoards! Feel free to send us a PM if you have any questions.
