Updated and graciously reposted from Gurze Publications…In an interview at the close of Paulo Coelho’s  The Witch of Portobello, he explains that his goal in this book was to elaborate “on the feminine side of God.”  I find myself drawn to Coelho’s novels because he “writes to understand himself.”  In reading his words, I often […]

Why Weight Loss Is The Wrong Goal

A Marsha Hudnall blast-from-the-past, originally posted September 11, 2009. I own and direct a women’s healthy weight loss retreat.  But I wish women would stop trying to lose weight. No, I don’t want to put myself out of business.  I’d just rather help women set and achieve goals that will really take them where they […]
