I have read some self-help books but this by far is the best as far as being able to relate. If you take a little time to perform the activities, the results will appear. The activities are not like finding time to go out to the gym to work out, they can be performed right at home before you go to bed or instead of watching the tv. Wonderful book!! Simply amazing!”
“Amazing Journey. This book should be on the best seller list. Myrtle and Mia Russell lead the reader through a maze of tragedy, healing and recovery. They do this while challenging the reader to see the good in bad, and show gratitude for tragedy as well as for triumph.”
“I learned about small change through my minister and participated in our church’s ‘Biggest Loser’ Contest. What I like most about the book was the meal plans, eating five small meals a day, and the focus on moderation. I only exercised about twice a month. The book was very insightful and this was my first time trying lifestyle changes instead of just focusing on losing weight. In the past I tried diets but never stuck with them, but with small change I decided to stick to it. I weighed 235 pounds when I started the ‘Biggest Loser’ program and after 28 days I weighed 217 pounds. I would definitely recommend the book to others.”
