I am a very solutions oriented person. I have a bad parenting day and I'm on the web searching for a website or book or program that will solve all my parenting problems. Bank account is running low, I'm buying books about budgeting and finances and saving money. (I'm sure I don't have to point out the irony there.) The same is true of weight loss. I decided I needed to explore the emotional part of this journey, thus I spent the entire afternoon searching for books, programs, CDs, workshops, etc that would help me figure all of this out.

After extensive research (if you call a couple hours extensive), I have ordered two books (one is actually a workbook) from Amazon. People, I've read all the reviews; these will change my life. Seriously though, I'll let you know how they are.

The Food & Feelings Workbook: A Full Course Meal on Emotional Health
by Karen R. Koenig
(I can just feel my self being helped by reading the title!)

The Rules of "Normal" Eating: A Commonsense Approach for Dieters, Overeaters, Undereaters, Emotional Eaters, And Everyone In Between
by Karen R. Koenig

Stay tuned for reviews.

If you have read either of these books, or have any others that you recommend, please share your thoughts!


  1. So...as things do in one's reader, the workbook picture popped up and I paid no attention to what blog it was coming from but my first thought was, I need this! and my second was, I should tell Kris about this - haaaaaaaaaaa! Of course, when I clicked to read more, I discovered it was your blog.

  2. Patra- Doesn't it seem great?!?! I'll let you know how it is. My copy should arrive tomorrow!
