Now That's Just Stupid: Weight, What?
By Debra Taylor
Genre: Self-Help

The F-Word: A three letter word that carries the greatest impact to the deepest void inside the soul…Fat there I said it.Just the word alone makes every hurt, pain, failure or haunting memory rise to the surface and food is the only thing that will quiet the storm.You don’t have a problem with food! You have problems, issues, behaviors and you go to food. There is a big difference!WEIGHT, What? is the third release in the Now That’s Just Stupid, Inc. book series. It’s a journey through real weight loss using regular, every day foods only this time you will solve the issues and keep the food. No one should tell you what to eat, what not to eat or how much to eat. YOU know how to do that! What you don’t know is how to solve the reasons why you overeat. Healthy foods and exercise didn’t make you fat and they won’t make you thin UNTIL you face the emotional issues underneath the weight. This book will show you how to use your food to guide you toward your C.O.R.E. issues and take the steps to solve them.

    1. Thank you Teresa:

      I had previously written two other books with similar styles due to be a woman and I do a lot of public speaking I want the female look with red lips [my trademark]. For this particular topic, show the garbage that goes in our mouths and comes out [negative self talk] I want the cover to represent.

  3. Don't really get it, maybe missing something. Do want to read the book. I have a friend who is morbidly obese & can't get around to shop or cook yet hasn't lost any weight. I think her husband feeds her to keep her in check.

    1. Paula: not sure what you don't get but let me see if this addresses it. For many overweight people and those around them they believe their issue is with food and it's not. It's the hurt, pain, neglect, experiences and unfulfilled needs coupled with their own thoughts and beliefs that send them to excess food in order to cope. It's not a food issue but rather a life issue and food [like drugs, alcohol, etc.] is the coping mechanism used.

      I'm not sure what you mean by her husband 'feeds her to keep her in check'. He may bring food to her to keep her in that state because it makes him feel needed, wanted and safe that she won't heal and leave him. The dynamcis are strong for both parties.

  4. Robin:

    Cover Meaning: it is showing issues, hurt, pain, conflict going in our mouth along with food and the same coming out. It's truly not the enjoyment of food that obese individuals seek. It's the comfort, escape and calming fulfillment.
