A guided journal to help overeaters get to the heart and soul of their eating patterns. As a 328-pound woman, Debbie Danowski was on her way to an early death when she entered a treatment center for food addiction 14 years ago. During the six-week stay, she was required to keep a daily journal, a task that she now credits with helping to save her life. The act of writing forced Danowski to uncover thoughts and feelings she had kept hidden. It was the key to unlocking her lifelong food obsession. Now Danowski brings her special insight and writing expertise to The Overeaters Journal with journaling exercises that explore the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of food obsession.
What to do when food is NOT your best friend. According to a recent Self Magazine, 65% of all women have an unhealthy relationship with food. Often they use food to numb feelings and become binge eaters or overeaters. Food becomes their primary means for coping with everyday stress, anxiety, and other difficult feelings. Drawing on her experience of working with compulsive overeaters and binge eaters for over twenty years, Meryl Beck has developed a revolutionary approach for rewiring your brain that incorporates spiritual, physical and emotional tools for getting healthy. This 21 day plan brings together tools from psychotherapy, the 12 Steps, personal growth, work, and energy healing. Stop Eating Your Heart Out offers a way to rewire the brain to respond differently to the impulses and feelings that create bingeing. Beck, a therapist, and former binge takes an approach to recovery from emotional eating that incorporates spiritual, emotional, and energy work.
Recovery is not a man's world, and yet to a woman it can sometimes seem that way. Geared specifically to that woman, this book brings a feminine perspective to the Twelve Step program, searching out the healing messages beneath the male-oriented words. Based on an open exploration and a flexible interpretation of the Twelve Steps, this new perspective takes into account the psychological development of women as it relates to addiction and recovery, as well as the social and cultural factors that affect women in particular. Acknowledging that recovery raises special issues for women--from questions about sexuality, relationships, and everyday life to anxieties about speaking up at mixed-gender meetings--A Woman's Way through the Twelve Steps focuses directly on the feminine experience of addiction and healing. The author explores the Twelve Steps one by one, reiterating each in its traditional language, then explaining and illustrating it in a way that highlights a woman's experience--empowering the reader to take ownership of her own recovery process as well as her growth as a woman.
This workbook contains over twenty exercises that have helped compulsive overeaters and others find tools to cultivate peace, a connection to a HP, and growth in an abstinent life full of recovery. This workbook references The Twelve Steps of Overeaters Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous. The Authors have compiled and designed exercises and prayers that can be of use in your daily journal writing, working with your sponsor or use in a recovery group.
