Lose the Weight...Lose the Worry!Mother and Daughter Team Up to Share the Plan
(Birmingham, AL) - Does the idea of starting a diet make you hungry? Can you eat more than your children's combined weight in twinkies? Don't worry! Help is on the way. Author Julie Morris, RN, and her daughter, Sarah Morris Cherry, have developed a proven method for losing weight and keeping it off permanently. The Guided By Him method not only helps people lose weight, it also helps participants learn how to cope with stress. After years of struggling with her weight, Julie has developed a strategic, humor-filled plan designed to keep participants motivated, laughing, learning and yes, even eating.

"I loved leading the group! It was fun, easy and took very little preparation."
Ginger - Group Leader
In Guided By Him, readers embark on an adventure in weight loss. Julie and Sarah use uplifting scriptures, thought-provoking questions, daily devotionals and fun-filled food facts to ensure readers keep a positive, light attitude toward learning a leaner lifestyle. Julie's experience as a nurse and Sarah's knowledge as a certified counselor, make this a pair of enthusiastic, highly qualified coaches. This study could be used alone in the comfort of home or led in a group setting. It's great for casual girlfriend meetings, church small groups and even the lunchroom at work! Accountability questions keep participants honest and real with themselves and others.

Renae said...

If I leave a comment, is that admitting I need to lose weight? :P What happened over Christmas? Oh, yeah, my mom was here for a month giving me chocolate. ;)Thanks for the chance to win!

crystal said...

Ha ha! My mom's gifts for the family for Christmas are tins of homemade candy, including chocolate fudge and peanut butter fudge - I feel (maybe that should be taste?) your pain!

These books sounds like a great way to not only learn how to eat better, but how to live a healthier lifestyle. If you just change your eating habits, chances are your diet will fail. If you change your lifestyle you have a much better chance of keeping the weight off. I've experienced this for myself! I love the fact these books are God-centered. Sounds like 3 great books to read and live by!

Dianne said...

Sounds like a great program. We so often think that areas of our lives are compartmentalized, but they're not. They are so integrated. Have to check this out. Thanks! :-)

Paul said...
