"It gives me pleasure to recommend to you Hungry for Happiness, a genuinely useful (and entertaining) book about discovering the weight that feels right for you. Samantha Skelly is the perfect kind of guide for your journey: She’s been there, and she radiates the kind of clarity and compassion you can only get from dealing with weight struggles yourself. I’ve been there, too. As readers of my books know, I was an obese child who was taken to numerous medical specialists to find out why I was the fat kid in a family where everybody else was skinny. I was put on various regimens, but nothing really solved the problem until I had an awakening of consciousness when I was 24 years old. I turned my gaze inward, instead of outward toward trying a new diet every few months. What I discovered on my inward journey changed my life profoundly; within a year I lost more than 100 pounds and have kept it off ever since. Samantha went on a similar journey, but from a very different direction. (Hint: I never looked like a bikini model!) No matter what your shape, though, there are words of wisdom for you throughout the book. She discovered, as I did, that handling your weight issues is as much a spiritual practice as it is physical or emotional. It is my hope that Hungry for Happiness will find its way into the hands of millions of people who are suffering from the many difficulties that come from a troubled relationship with food. Wherever you are in this process, I think you will find Samantha’s book a source of wisdom and a healing for your heart." — Gay Hendricks, Ph.D., author of The Big Leap and Conscious Luck
