Two Stories to Inspire You

Here is an introduction to Barbara and Doug, their stresses, and the improvements they gained. This introduction gives you an encouraging glimpse of the overall life improvements possible. Their full stories are revealed later in this book.

The Beginning of the Barbara Story

Two years ago, Barbara was 70 pounds overweight. She told people that her boss didn’t like anything she did, and she told herself that she had too much stress. She also told herself that she had every reason to feel stress. She had gone through a divorce from an alcoholic husband, lost her house, and been forced to pack her son and daughter and their belongings into her car and move in with her mother.

Then Barbara found a way to face her situation and turn her stress into motivation.
