Life is too short to live without Cheesecake – Jo Sherring
ANOTHER book on weight loss? Really? I thought there was nothing more to say. Turns out I was wrong.
Three things I learned that will impact on my practice:
- Most people hate being told what to do.
- Increasing knowledge and intention doesn’t always lead to better outcomes.
- Willpower IS your friend, but that unreliable one that lets you down and stands you up.
Jo Sherring, a Townsville mental health occupational therapist (say that three times fast), has taken a new look at personal and social reasons for the “Obesity Epidemic”. What emerges is a fascinating and hilarious book with a different approach to weight control – forgiving yourself for being human and working out what makes you happier (even, or especially, if that includes cheesecake).
There are some bonus parenting and relationship tips that I think were serendipitously included.
