This is not a dieting book, and it’s not a motivational pep talk.

The book starts with the assumption that you do want to lose weight (it also assumes you’re a woman, and probably over 40… that’s just the book’s target market, but the same advice is good even if that’s not you), and that you’ve probably been trying, on and off, for a while. Her position is simple:

❝I don’t believe that you have a weight loss problem. I believe that you have a self-sabotage problem❞

~ Jennifer Powter, MSc

As to how this sabotage may be occurring, Powter talks about fears that may be holding you back, including but not limited to:

  • Fear of failure
  • Fear of the unknown
  • Fear of loss
  • Fear of embarrassment
  • Fear of your weight not being the reason your life sucks

Far from putting the reader down, though, Powter approaches everything with compassion. To this end, her prescription starts with encouraging self-love. Not when you’re down to a certain size, not when you’re conforming perfectly to a certain diet, but now. You don’t have to be perfect to be worthy of love.

On the topic of perfection: a recurring theme in the book is the danger of perfectionism. In her view, perfectionism is nothing more nor less than the most justifiable way to hold yourself back in life.

Lastly, she covers mental reframes, with useful questions to ask oneself on a daily basis, to ensure progressing step by step into your best life.

In short: if you’d like to lose weight and have been trying for a while, maybe on and off, this book could get you out of that cycle and into a much better state of being.
