Welcome to a New World of Weight Loss where the power of positive speaking helps you lose weight and feel great!

The Authors created this book as a 26-day tool using the letters of the alphabet to be “as easy as ABC” – because that’s what the process of weight loss should be.

This book is full of sincerity, practical advice, and better living for all Jewish women. Since it is targeted to help with the nutritional guidelines that they might be struggling with, which are not only limited to overeating or an eating disorder, I recommend that it be read carefully one section at a time with ample review for the best results.

Introspection, Teshuva, Personality & Change: A Map

By Rabbi Dr. Peter M. Rosenzweig

What is it about us that makes variety pleasurable and change less desirable? The common thinking as to why change is less attractive holds the belief that we are creatures of habit. Taken a step further, we know that personal attitudes towards change can vary greatly. Some changes, like buying a new hat or tie are relatively easy. Unquestionably, we are most resistant to change when it involves changing our own habits, beliefs, or behaviors.

So, don’t buy this book for someone else. Its purpose is to help you change yourself. Better to read this before personal distress forces us to make dramatic changes in our lives.

The premise of this book is that introspection and teshuvah, Judaism’s formula for self-change, not only change our spiritual trajectory, they allow us to enhance and enrich our lives. These powerful vehicles can also transform personal change into a life-giving habit.

I was excited to receive your manuscript on Teshuvah and Personality. One might think that after all that has been written, from Rabbeinu Yonah onwards, that there is nothing more one can add on the subject. However, the later baalei mussar all made important additions, especially due to the changes in people’s thinking.

The various schools of modern psychology have shed light on the mechanisms of thought and emotion. Your work is certain to be a major contribution toward a better understanding of this fundamental facet of Yiddishkeit.

May Hashem bless you with great hatzlacha.
