    Bravo!!

    The Life You Want is Filled with many great tips and exercises to help anyone who is interested lead a better life. I'm an author and a psychologist who deals with clients who overeat. I see many many people who know they are emotional eaters, and may even know that their emotional eating covers a specific trauma or need, but knowing the reason one overeats and being motivated to change are two separate issues. I found one of the exercises in the book to be really helpful with a very stuck client. I xeroxed and gave her the self test in chapter 2 by Ann Kearney's, Overcoming Emotional Eating on page 42. This test challenged her to assess how motivated she really was to lose weight: :"Are You Motivated- Gauge How Much. After she filled out the self help test, I gave her Ann's interpretations. She was able to digest Ann's comments and reflect upon them in a way that led her to curtail her eating! So I want to wholeheartedly recommend the book-- its a gem and pay particular attention to that chapter: Overcoming Emotional Eating. It's not everyday someone has a real breakthrough!!
