Weight loss is about people, not calories. Too many other books focus on diet and exercise but neglect the personal, relationship, and spiritual factors that are the real keys to successful weight management. Drawing on the inspirational stories of the successful members of the international nonprofit, weight-loss support group Take Off Pounds Sensibly (TOPS), the organization's psychologist, Howard J. Rankin, shows you how to harness your personal power and the power of others to lose weight and keep it off.

In addition to motivational strategies, easy-to-follow advice is given to help develop key attitudes such as resilience, self-acceptance, and responsibility; as well as essential skills such as self-control, adaptive thinking, and temptation management. People don't lose weight in a social vacuum; they lose weight in the contest of their relationships. So at each step, Dr. Rankin shows you how to enhance your program by using one of the most valuable resources available-the power of others.
