"Norris Chumley turns the weight-fighting movement on its head in this brilliant book of passionate self-management."—T. George Harris, former editor, Psychology Today
"A joy. The best 'diet' is a well-balanced diet, with variety, eaten in moderation for life, along with regular exercise, surrendering to a Higher Power, and feeling the joy while losing weight. That’s the plan in this book."—Monica Sweeney, M.D.
On September 6, 1989 Norris Chumley was at a crossroads. At 330 pounds and rising, it was simply a matter of time before he would again tip the scales at the 400 pounds he had reached many times before. He had been on virtually every diet, and they'd all failed. He felt hopeless, and, in rare glimpses of honesty, secretly admitted he was slowly committing suicide.
The Joy of Weight Loss
is the dramatic story of how Norris Chumley turned his life around. It details how Chumley came to accept his conflict about food and body image and finally looked long and hard at his weight fluctuations and diet history. Chumley shares his experiences and secrets of success—of how he discovered joy and lasting happiness, with permanent freedom from obesity.
Unlike other weight-loss or diet books, The Joy of Weight Loss
is a weight-management book that offers a fresh new solution to everyone's quest for health and happiness. There are no magic pills, no starvation or binge diets. There are no crash courses or deprivations. Chumley instead counsels a sensible diet, taking pleasure in pleasurable movement rather than a punishing exercise regime, and, most importantly of all, learning to surrender yourself to a higher power and discover a true form of self-love that is at once accepting and transforming.
