"Letters to my girlfriend about love, weight, and peaceful revolution"

by ShellaVugomzki

(BRISBANE -AUSTRALIA)"Letters to my girlfriend about love, weight, and peaceful revolution" (ISBN # 9781742841441) is an intimate account of the author's journey to a healthier and fitter body, self-love, high self-esteem and spirituality against the backdrop of different socio-political and cultural environments of the former Soviet Union, the Middle East and Australia. Her lifestyle turned out to be a good match to the challenges that she had to face as a mature age immigrant. It became a first venue for a much needed success.

The central theme of the book is escape from the situation in which ‘food, food and more food' rules by the oppression of other vital needs. The image of Alcatraz, which used to be a high security prison, appears as a symbol of mental confinement that food addicts find themselves in.

In her book she writes: "Everybody understands that looking good requires motivation, determination, discipline and persistence. These are the key factors in becoming an achiever in whatever we do. If you do not have money to invest in products promising financial success, such as property, shares, etc., and therefore you are denied a financially comfortable life, invest in yourself. If you are financially comfortable but want things that money cannot buy, invest in yourself. If you want to wake up in the morning having a wonderful feeling of ownership, invest in yourself. If you want to have a sense of some certainty in your life, invest in yourself" (p173-p174).

The author employs a genre of letter-writing to create an atmosphere of confidentiality to convey the messages of hope and reassurance to those who want to break free from a bad habit of using food as a relief from emotional and mental distress.

Addressed to a female friend, the letters contain real experiences of the author, her comments and views on different lifestyles aimed to motivate and inspire a reader to make conscious choices regarding personal wellbeing. Although written for women, this book can also help male readers to gain a better understanding of some of the challenges women face.

Shella Vugomzki is an Australian-educated counselor of Ukrainian background. This is her first book.

I can relate myself to this story. Every time I'm depressed when things go wrong and go beyond my expectations, I would indulge myself to any food that comes into my mind. I would sleep a lot and stay idle while eating foods that are mostly junky. I know to myself that I'm doing a wrong thing but I can't control it. I just can't! I feel that eating is the only way to make me forget the things that depresses me. I hope this book will guide me to the right decision and perspective.
