Weight Loss Programs, Diet & Exercise Books1. The Joy of Weight Loss, by Norrisj. Chumley, Paperback, Lantern Books
The Joy of Weight Loss is the dramatic story of how Norris Chumley turned his life around. 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. Chumley shares his experiences and secrets of success-of how he discovered joy and lasting happiness, with permanent freedom from obesity. 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.
