Now That’s Just Stupid: Weight, What?
by Debra Taylor

Now That’s Just Stupid: Weight, What?  by Debra Taylor
Now That’s Just Stupid: Weight, What? by Debra Taylor is currently on tour with Silver Dagger Book ToursThe tour stops here today for an excerpt and a giveaway. Please be sure to visit the other tour stops as well.

The F-Word: A three letter word that carries the greatest impact to the deepest void inside the soul … Fat, there I said it. Just the word alone makes every hurt, pain, failure, or haunting memory rise to the surface, and food is the only thing that will quiet the storm. You don’t have a problem with food! You have problems, issues, behaviors, and your go-to food. There is a big difference!
Weight, What? is the third release in the Now That’s Just Stupid, Inc. book series. It’s a journey through real weight loss using regular, everyday foods, only this time you will solve the issues and keep the food. No one should tell you what to eat, what not to eat, or how much to eat. YOU know how to do that! What you don’t know is how to solve the reasons why you overeat. Healthy foods and exercise didn’t make you fat, and they won’t make you thin UNTIL you face the emotional issues underneath the weight.
This book will show you how to use your food to guide you toward your C.O.R.E. issues and take the steps to solve them.

o·be·si·ty| /ōˈbēsədē/ noun
1.   a condition characterized by the excessive accumulation and storage of fat in the body
  1. a chronic, relapsing, multifactorial, neurobehavioral disease
My definitions:
1.   a sole sentence that enforces one to cater to societal beliefs that you are lazy with no willpower or motivation to achieve their level of attractiveness or health standards
  1. a public visual aid of every heartbreak, pain and broken piece of life that you were given or forced to consume
You are not your weight. Just the sound of the word fat brings an internal embarrassment of shame that pulls anger or humiliation to the surface instantaneously. Every time we hear that word, we often lash out at anything in our pathway or bury the enormous burden of self-loathing with more food. Either way, the cycle continues to the point that our familiar realization is a variety of honest assessments such as I don’t know what’s wrong. I can’t stop. No matter how many diets I have done, it’s inevitable that I will put it all the weight back on and then some.
My response is always: Are you done now? You see, I’ve been in your shoes too many times, and I will not let you stay defeated unless you choose to remain overweight. It is a choice, not a destiny. Weight,WHAT? is going to unfold all your baggage and solve it this time. You will experience every emotion imaginable before you reach your goal weight. It will be hard. You will want to run or worse yet, quit again. But if you stay, you will know who and what caused your obesity, {and it wasn’t food}, and the practical steps to break the addiction, of using food, to cope with a life you were not born to live. This is called “doing the work” and I, for one, know you are worth it!

Praise for the Book
“I’ve never actually set out to read a book about weight. I had a hard time at first relating to the book and I almost put it down. I’m glad I didn’t and have realized some things that I thought I didn’t allow to affect my life that is. I also know there are more books by Debra Taylor that will also be helpful and I’m looking forward to reading them. Her knowledge helps put things into perspective and gives you resources to help.” ~ Raychel, United Indie Book Blog
