The week after Christmas is typically a time when our thoughts turn from holiday excess (including all the food we indulged in for several weeks) to preparing for a new year and all the hope for change that it can bring.
(We won’t talk about the indulgences that may be to come on New Year’s Eve. Fortunately I don’t have to worry about parties and food on this occasion, as my head drops to the pillow long before the ball drops on Times Square.)
I, for one, am looking for a fresh start in some of the areas I struggle with, including letting stress trigger bad habits with food. Sometimes I let that derail my goals.
I’ll be spending this weekend formalizing and putting to paper some of the goals that have been swimming around in my head for the past few weeks. (Remember the “5 Days to Your Best Year Ever” goal-setting course that I told you about in early December? Well, it’s time for the rubber to meet the road!)
So … what about you?
If getting a handle on your weight issues is one of your goals for 2017, I have an offer for you.
Nettye Johnson, a wonderful woman I’ve been following for a year or two, has written a book, Put Your Faith Where Your Fork Is.
Here’s a description:
In Put Your Faith Where Your Fork Is, author Nettye Johnson shares spiritual truths and scientific principles to help you:
- Put God first and grow closer to Him in the pursuit of health and wellness.
- Right skewed relationships with food.
- Embrace moderation and eliminate food guilt.
- Create a personalized, effective, and livable food philosophy for healthy weight loss and maintenance.
- Change your view of healthy disciplines from a challenge, battle, or struggle to a privilege, joy, a part of who you are, and a way to honor God.
As are many books about weight control and healthful living, this one is written by a person who’s been there.
And because Nettye has been victorious in this battle, she wants to help others achieve the peace that comes from eliminating guilt and remorse and get on with the business of health and honoring God in the process. A few weeks ago, she offered a buy-one-get-one-free opportunity.
So … thinking of you … I bought a copy of the book and got an extra.
And I’ve been waiting to read it.
I’ve been waiting for you, my friend. The next step is yours.
I’m giving away a FREE copy of Nettye’s book, Put Your Faith Where Your Fork Is, to one reader. Here’s how you can win:
- Commit to reading the book with me and discussing it a chapter at a time (12 chapters, 12 weeks).
- Fill out the short form below telling me why you’re making this commitment (and why I should give you a free book!).
It’s simple: Make a commitment, then tell me why.
You have until noon Central time Monday, Jan. 2, 2017. I’ll announce the winner that evening. And if you don’t win the free copy, you’re welcome to purchase one and let me know if you’re interested in starting a group discussion. (By the way, I am not an affiliate and get no compensation for promoting this book; I just think Nettye’s awesome and has really valuable things to tell us.)
Feel free to share this post with your friends, and ask them to enter to win the free copy of Nettye’s book. (Also, subscribing to To Well With You – separate from the giveaway – will ensure that they receive my updates by email.)
The winner and I will figure out the best way to go about discussing the chapters. If you’re local, we might meet each Saturday morning over coffee or tea. If you’re my long-distance friend, we can email or connect online. (We’ll figure it out.) And if we have enough interest for a group discussion, I might create a private Facebook group to do that.
TO ENTER, fill out the form below (you’ll have to scroll to see all the content). And thanks!
I can’t wait to see what you have to say!
