Overview

This easy-to-use, non-threatening fitness book focuses on the psychological aspects of weight loss and fitness, teaching women that their attitudes toward their bodies are more important than an iron will or unswerving commitment to exercise or diet. The author uses the metaphor of building a house in showing women how to achieve the physique they desire. In each chapter, the author suggests that you use your childhood memories to create an enjoyable diet and exercise routine.

Requiring much introspection and writing in a journal, the author guides readers to pick out patterns in their lives regarding self-image and to work on overcoming negative experiences and thinking of themselves in a more positive light. In addition to her advice concerning the mental side of fitness, the author also provides specific suggestions for exercising and eating. She encourages women to be positive and flexible, stressing the point that attitude is everything.

    Simply the Best!

    I love how personal and interesting this book is. It's definitely not your traditional fitness book--it's much more. It's helped me get over some of my negative thinking and has helped me stay with working out and eating right a lot longer than anything I've tried before.

    All Inclusive Fitness Guide!

    Whether you are a novice or an experienced workaholic at fitness this book has something to offer you. I found the work out routines to be challenging and the exercise charts extremely helpful in my own fitness. The chapter on 'fit thinking' was most compelling and a real eye opener.

    The MVP of fitness books!

    The most comprehensive fitness book I've read. I own approximately thirty fitness books and none have touched me like First Steps to Fitness. It's like having your own personal trainer speaking to you. The book provides step-by-step training and emotional support.
