Food was a source of misery instead of enjoyment for the majority of Barbara McCalmon's
futile struggle to fight her
ballooning weight because of obsessive binge eating with long periods of exercise (also obsessive) became, at times, life-threatening.It is the painful memories of these years that the author graphically and, at times touchingly, presents in this heart-warming book Your Weight or Your Life?Her
condition became so serious that family members finally intervened and insisted she
enroll in a clinic for eating disorders.
According to the author, her
real cure came later, through the Science of Mind philosophy, which she
was attracted to in early adulthood."It became obvious that a solution to my problems resided not with the amount of calories I consumed, but within my soul...." she
writes."I realized that to solve my problem I must first reconnect with my inner foundation,a higher power ... to bring back balance into my life." Balance is still a part of McCalmon's life, and she continues to be an active member of the Mile Hi Church of Religious Science in Denver, Colorado.
Now recovered, she
has opened two successful day spas and is looking forward to doing a lecture tour on overcoming eating disorders.In the last chapter, "A Program for Recovery," she
offers specific suggestions for others who are suffering from food addiction.
What makes Your Weight or Your Life? a worthy read is the honesty and openness of its author to unashamedly relate, often with a pleasant mix of insight and humor, the struggle of her
food addiction and recovery.
