LOSING WEIGHT WITHOUT LOSING YOUR MIND
What would it be like to lose weight without the inner struggle by making peace with your body and food? What if you could form a new connection with your body and learn your personal code for weight loss? Lifelong weight control is about working collaboratively with all of you… all of your habits, all of your needs, all of your thoughts, all of your body. This book helps you to take a look at where you are and perhaps discover things about yourself that you didn’t realize before to help you in your journey of weight loss. It’s about you being empowered to own your body and create the body that you want and deserve. Your body and your mind are gifts and you are your own unique self with your own unique needs. There is no “diet” plan in this book. There is logic and understanding about what your mind and body needs to be the healthiest you.
IMPROVING COMMUNICATION WITH DIFFICULT PEOPLE: A LITTLE NLP BOOK

NLP is about how we think, learn, feel and act, which influences how well we communicate with each other. This book is designed deliberately small, to cut to the chase, and highlight the communication methods that are most important when applied to interpersonal relationships in our everyday lives. The information is delivered in an easy to understand manner and gives examples along the way to help the reader understand and use NLP to improve communication and understanding with others, whether those people are nice.... or not so nice.
