Author: Jenni Schaefer
With: Thom Rutledge

Goodbye Ed, Hello Me
This much anticipated follow-up to Life Without Ed explains what it is like to be “fully recovered” from an eating disorder. Picking up shortly after the first book left off, Jenni starts off by explaining how she skipped her first marriage, “The wedding invitations were stamped but not mailed, and (her wedding dress) and three pink bridesmaid dresses were bought but never worn.” Instead, she gave the engagement ring back to a man “who loved alcohol more than me,” and wrote wedding vows to herself, promising to love and honor herself and accept all of her faults and strengths with patience and gentle kindness.

Dieting: A Dry Drunk [Paperback]
This book is for people with eating problems, weight problems, dieting problems. It’s for those who have experienced obsessive and compulsive attempts to control their weight and eating. This is a book about how’s-not whys- how to identify it, how to arrest it, and how to be free from “needing” it.
Just as there are guidelines and information that help a newly dry alcoholic shift from the depression and resentment of a “dry drunk” to the acceptance and enjoyment of sobriety, this book will offer direction and insight to those problem eaters still suffering from a dieting mentality–their own brand of a dry drunk.
The same solutions and tools that are used in arresting alcoholism are presented as a “map” to facilitate the problem eater in moving from the depressing cycle of out-of-control eating, over-controlled eating, to the serenity and sanity of continuous abstinence from compulsive eating.
Whereas dieting can create a bondage to the insanity of a “dry drunk,” abstinence from random, compulsive, overeating or undereating can offer “sobriety”–a sane and sound way to address and arrest addictive eating.

You will walk with Shannon through the recovery process as you read private correspondence from five of her long-term mentees and participate right along with them in self-quizzes, short exercises, motivational affirmations, and journaling that is specifically designed to give you the courage, support, and tangible skills to say no to your eating disorder and yes to your life!
