With quotes from Anne Lamott, Camryn Manheim, Bob Dylan, Joan Didion, Oprah Winfrey, Alice Walker, Aimee Liu, and other notables, past and present, used in concert with the meditations, this reader brings some of the pleasures and rewards about truth-telling and arriving at self-truth to the surface. Selections deal with our desperation and fear, misconceptions about life, and especially, how our ideas of love, the terrors of love, and romantic addiction have played into our use of diet remedies and the methods we have tried. We talk about what we have tried for control, invisibility, buying time, putting off or conquering life. We identify 'So Many Lies' about the remedies, behaviors and methods, and tell about putting our lives on the basis of truth. We tell what happened to make us stop using compulsive dieting and to come into Twelve Step Recovery. We share about "Self-Care" and "Building On Identity" - what we do to practice clear thinking, detach from erroneous messages, clear away self-deception, develop kindness toward self and others, be safe, recognize and deal effectively with attack voices, deal with overwhelming emotions, know and practice courage, serve, and build identity based on our God-given talents, abilities and enthusiasms. We talk about love, honor, loving self, loving another, loving the world.
