While I was never a food
addict, I was a compulsive overeater for almost a decade
at an earlier point in my life. When I began studying
A Course in Miracles, my compulsion
healed and I felt I had escaped what I called "food
hell." I have written A Course in Weight Lossto illustrate the processes that occurred
within me as the miracle of my healing unfolded. I hope
that what I learned, and what I myself experienced, will
be of value to you as you go through your own healing.
“If your ‘weighty thinking’
does not change, then even if you lose weight you’ll
retain an overwhelming subconscious urge to gain it
back. It’s less important how quickly you lose weight,
and more important how holistically you lose
weight; you want your mind, your emotions, and your body
to all ‘lose weight.’ Weight that disappears from
your body but not from your soul is simply recycling
outward for a while
but is almost certain to
return. It’s self-defeating, therefore, to struggle to
drop excess weight unless
you are also willing to drop
the thought-forms that initially produced it and now
hold it in place.”
— Marianne Williamson
What is the connection between
spirituality and weight loss? Best-selling author
Marianne Williamson is about to answer that question
for you in her groundbreaking new book, bringing you 21
spiritual lessons to help you surrender your weight
forever. These lessons form a holistic paradigm for
weight loss, addressing the spiritual, emotional, and
psychological elements involved in what Williamson
refers to as “conscious weight loss.” If you are a food
addict, a compulsive eater, or someone who for any
reason sees food as the enemy, this book is for you.
A Course in Weight Loss addresses
the true causal root of your weight-loss issues: a place
within you where you have forgotten your divine
perfection. This forgetfulness has confused not only
your mind but also your body, making you reach for that
which cannot sustain you . . . and reject that which
does. As your mind reclaims its spiritual intelligence,
your body will reclaim its natural intelligence as well.
The 21 lessons in this book will
take you on a deep, sacred journey. One step at a time,
you will learn to shift your relationship with
yourself—and your body—from one of fear to one of love.
And you will begin to integrate the various parts of
yourself—mind, body, and spirit—to become, once again,
and in all ways, the beautiful and peaceful person you
were created to be.
This Course is a journey,
it is a process. It is a way, even if only a little
bit each day, to re-orient many aspects of your
life. It's not some huge all-of-a-sudden dramatic
change, so much as a gradually unfolding new
relationship to yourself,
to God, to your body and to food. Your ability to be
okay with taking baby steps with the lessons will
actually aid you in beginning to take smaller bites
of food ~ Marianne, A Course In Weight Loss
As Williamson writes: “When it
comes to your enjoyment of eating, your best days are
not behind you but ahead of you!” So get ready to begin
a new relationship with food . . . and with yourself.

space, or human organizational principles. Through our practical application of lessons in the art of forgiveness
and in the psychology of self-responsibility, we are awakened to the memory of our Divine Inheritance.
The purpose of A Course In Miracles is to train your mind in a systematic way to a different perception of
everyone and everything in the world... The very nature of True Perception is that it has no limits. It is the opposite
of the way you see now. True perception is the means by which the world is saved from sin, for sin does not exist.
And it is this that true perception sees.
Nothing real can be threatened.
Nothing unreal exists.
Herein lies the peace of God.
