About the Author:

Discover skill power, not will power! Someone who has been there wrote this playbook. I have kept off about 250 pounds for over 35 years (I weighed 400 pounds in the 8th eighth grade!), and I have been in recovery from alcohol and drugs for 21 years. My lifestyle behaviors were out of control and unhealthy. I didn t know what to do. I was stuck. How did I make lasting changes? I found that success at losing weight and keeping it off required learning a series of new skills. I am also a Registered Dietetic Technician who has been in the field of Health Education for over 25 years and has taught non-dieting healthy living classes in Portland, Oregon for 19 years. This playbook and the website (Balanced Weight Management.com) share in a clear and simple way my journey of transforming the root causes of my overweight, and they suggest that each person can look into themselves and unravel their underlying patterns and sculpt new beginnings. People who have struggled with weight relate easily to my journey because it is their own story. Every part of the playbook nurtures hope that we all can transform intense self-destruction into loving self care. Discover Bob's overflowing wellspring of wellness based on his personal story of releasing about 250 pounds over 35 years ago and being drug and alcohol free for over 21 years. Bob has helped thousands of people discover and use their own inner wisdom to find lasting solutions for their life challenges.

Review:

If you want permanent weight loss and are ready to do some work, this manual is for you. There is a mother lode of information here for cultivating physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. This is a remarkably comprehensive body of work. Thank you Bob Wilson for putting it all together in one place --Dr. Phil Shapiro, Psychiatrist and Author of Healing Power: Ten Steps to Pain Management and Spiritual Evolution --Dr. Phil Shapiro, Psychiatrist and Author of Healing Power: Ten Steps to Pain Management and Spiritual Evolution

Bob has been there and understands: 1. how one gets stuck, 2. what that feels like, 3. how to get unstuck, 4. what the obstacles & barriers will be, and 5. how to overcome them. --Client and reviewer Doug G.

When I finished this book I wondered how I could do it justice in one small book review. The Wilson book quite honestly deals with how we may improve all aspects of our lives from the inside out. As the colorful and happy-looking cover states, it is a playbook for life. One receives the impression, from the cover, of a positive and fun book, and that is what it is. Some of the self-help skills include diet, attitude, creating balance, self-management, relationships with yourself and others, introspection, getting support and how to have fun! Wilson' s book is full of cute pictures, interactive charts, helpful tips and other websites we can visit for help. Get this...it even includes recipes and meal planning charts! This is truly a manual for taking care of our bodies, our spirits and our emotions. It is written compassionately and the love of the author for mankind shines through. I love the little quotes and anecdotes included throughout. This book really made me smile. If you know someone who is struggling with self-image, weight problems and lacking overall motivation, I would say pick up an additional copy for a gift. If you are tired of self-help books, I would encourage you to try again, because this one gives practical ideas for improving our lives. It is fun to read and very uplifting, while dealing with serious issues with which we all struggle. The author has a website Balanced Weight Management.com --Patti Brown book editor for Gift From Within
