Reviews - What do customers think about You Are Not What You Weigh (Repack)?
Um.. Dec 3, 2007
I expected more from this book. But it wasn't as good as I expected it would be. I didn't even finish it as I kept waiting for it to really open up. Sometimes it was like it wasn't going anywhere.
Might actually work! Jun 29, 2007
This book had trouble holding my attention at first, but by half way in I couldn't put it down until the end. It's a fresh look at what we all know is the successful, permenant way to weight-loss : lifestyle change. Basically this book says 'don't diet, fast instead. and don't fast to lose weight, fast to be closer to God, and the rest will follow.' It's surprising how hard it is to accept that one's weight can be lost even if we don't obsess about it, try to control it, and even if we completely let go and trust God! I love the use of biblical quotations to drive home the point. I knew this book was different when, once I was done reading, I wasn't "jazzed up" (for about a day) to lose all my weight right now as other fad diet books make me. I was in a more prayerful mood, and ready to prepare myself for real permenant change.
I wish she also had biblical motivation for exercise; maybe in the next edition!
Awesome Book Feb 4, 2007
I would like to start off by saying that this book is awesome.I didn't plan on buying any books that where related to diet and exercise, but this book caught my eye just by the title "You Are Not What You Weigh-ending your battle with food..." So, I thought cool I'll buy this book and like all the other books that I've purchased on diet and exercise it will just sit on the shelf collecting dust. Well guess what? I couldn't put this book down. Reading and allowing the words to jump in my spirit as I read them has been a total blessing in my life. I would recommend this book to anyone that has been searching for some "real" truth to your battle with weight and eating disorders.
Not the "Usual" Approach Aug 21, 2005
Most books that address body weight and the issues surrounding it, take the approach of tackling the unwanted weight itself. This is a book about inner transformation - the ONLY way that true and LASTING change takes place. Lisa explores the spirtual dimension of every woman's battle with the bulge, and gives specific instruction for victory. Don't read this book unless you're ready to be challenged in EVERY area of this most important issue! You will find freedom and wholeness in it's pages.
Fresh New Things about Diet Aug 24, 2004
What I really like about this book is because it's unique, with fresh and new things about diet problem. I have read many many books and articles about diet and stuff, but what I read in Lisa's book is so fresh and new. Other books just keep repeating the same thing over and over again, but not this book. It really change me from the inside. When I was a child I use to be overweight and receive mocking. When I was teenager I lost the fat and did not have problem with weight until after I gave birth to my baby. I became overweight again and since than, the bad memories of mocking and rejection came back to haunt me. This book works as a consolation for me, it heals my hurting soul. It also show me how to reach my normal weigh goal, but now, not for the wrong reason. I also like to read Lisa's own experience, I could trust her because "she's been there and done that".
