Publisher's Summary

I’m missing out on my life. What’s wrong with me?

If that’s ever crossed your mind, and if you know there’s more to life than what you’ve been living, this audiobook is for you.

It sucks to acknowledge that you are what’s keeping you from the life you want. You sacrifice what you want most for what you want in the moment. You know everything you’re supposed to do, and yet you feel stuck - limited by your past, overwhelmed by your future - in a purgatory of your own behavior.

After decades of feeling trapped by this mind-set, Elizabeth Benton shifted her whole life by proving her own stories wrong. In this audiobook, Elizabeth will help you live a new story in which you can, you will, and you already have everything you need to make it happen.

By Far the Best Self-Help Book Ever!

Thank you! Elizabeth Benton! Your book is fantastic. You are thorough, engaging, no-nonsense, prescient, fun, encouraging, thoughtful and any other positive attribute a coach can be.
I've just finished listening to this book but I feel like I'm ready to take on anything and truly follow through and/or improve. I don't write many reviews but the quality of your work has left me no choice. Really well done.
I'll be back to update this review!
Thank you! again.

Full of Aha moments!

Thank you Elizabeth for writing this book. I have gone through many, many books on this topic. This one is not a rehash of anything. This content is life changing stuff that I have never heard explained the way she does it. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants clarity about what may be keeping them from losing weight and what to do about it.

Life Changing!

THANK YOU Elizabeth Benton!!!! Your book is not only informative, offering REAL tips, tricks, and techniques to handle some of the most complex issues in life...but it also covers the vast levels of emotional torture we inflict on our selves and how to better handle them. I am listening to it for the second time now and loving it just as much. Bravo young lady!!!!!!

So empowering!

The BEST personal development book I’ve ever read! Seriously the only thing that I would change about this book is the title because it is not about weightloss, although the author did lose a significant amount of weight. The book is a guide to meeting any goal that you have in your life. So empowering!

Great motivation for newbies

I thought the book was very well written but a little redundant if u listen to her podcasts or have worked with her.

If you love pinning quotes and “words of wisdom”.

I did enjoy the book. It helped get me over a fitness rut I had been in. However, there were many parts where I really thought this book was just a a run on of motivational quotes and mantras that some may need on the daily. But overall, there were quite a few lil tidbits that I will carry with me and think of on my journey from here on out!

Awesome Book about taking Action

I’ve never written a book review, but loved this book so much. This helped me get out of my past ‘loop’, where I had been letting my past run roughshod over today, now.
Read this book.

Inspirational!

I listen to her podcasts regularly and was so excited to download her first book. She provides hands-on tools for listeners at every level, whether you are just starting to get your life on track or have found yourself derailed along the way. She is never condescending nor does she minimize the listener's sense of trepidation or overwhelm. Her book provides tools we can return to again and again if needed and there is always the sense that she has been there herself and is there to light our way out.

50% motivation 50% repeated and rephrased cliche

I found myself enjoying this at times but consistently frustrated with the murdered mixed metaphors and constant repetition of the same point 6 different ways in the same paragraph using 6 cliche phrases.

It feels like the book could have been 100% effective at half the length.

Wow! She’s good... she’s really good!

This book was life changing for me
I love how it provides you with really interesting knowledge and information but then pushes you into taking effective action immediately- as Elizabeth says “Transformation is now” The real life experiences Elizabeth shares inspired me to take action confident that success was possible
The incredibly useful questions Elizabeth offers in itself was a massive tool to help change my mindset around weight loss

fantastic book but hardcopy needed

this is a fantastic book about transformation and will be recommending many of my clients read (i'm a personal trainer). the hard copy is definitely needed to get the most from it. I got 5 chapters in before I ordered the book and look forward to working through it. I have finished to audio version and I have enjoyed listening to Elizabeth. she is incredibly easy to listen to and passionate. I will continue to use the audio and book together as I work though each chapter.

Not just another diet book

I am Elizabeth Benton's newest #1 fan. The book is read by the author herself. I expected another diet book and ended up with so many ahhhh moments that I'll probably buy the hard copy to put in my bookcase too. Excellent Read... I've followed my nose to her Primal Potential podcast, and LOVE that too!

Highly recommend to all!!

Amazing book. Totally worth it. So awesome to hear Elizabeth read it herself as her passion for every part of the book comes shining through.

This book gives so many tools, ways to change your perspective to improve outcomes & instant actionable ideals for all areas of life not just diet & exercise.
