Chicago-Based Speaker/Author Concurs with Research Finding of Using Journaling as a Tool to Combat Obesity and Other Health Problems
Date:7/14/2008

CHICAGO, July 14 /PRNewswire/ -- A recent study by the Kaiser Permanente Center for Health Research found that dieters who kept track of what they ate in a food journal lost twice as much weight compared to those who didn't. These finding are no surprise to Chicago-based author and internationally recognized speaker, Marilyn D. Fitzgerald, who made her discovery years ago.

Fitzgerald is author of Spirit of a Winner (ISBN # 1-60013-013-5), a journal designed to guide readers to the root of their problems over a 31-day period by asking a series of very personal and thought-provoking questions. After a month of daily journaling, Fitzgerald says readers will have a snapshot of their "emotional fitness" (or lack thereof) and can begin to work toward personal and physical improvement.

Most Americans know that obesity can lead to heart disease, diabetes and other potentially fatal ailments. However, most don't know that these problems can be overcome through serious personal evaluation.

"Journaling literally saved my life," said Fitzgerald, a former, self-described "emotional over-eater."

Throughout adolescence Fitzgerald struggled with her weight. At her heaviest, weighing more than two hundred pounds. She also found herself dealing with a serious health condition called Candida, an overgrowth of bad bacteria in the body. "I didn't want to medicate or temporarily mask the problem. I wanted to find out exactly what thoughts and feelings led to the problem so that I could eliminate it," Fitzgerald said. She set off on the journey of journaling and recorded daily how she felt, what she ate, water intake and how much she exercised. "Once I started asking myself tough questions and having the courage to come up with answers, my eating changed and my physical and emotional prognosis improved significantly," Fitzgerald stated. She eventually dropped more than seventy pounds "thanks to cleansing, better diet choices and journaling."

It wasn't long before Fitzgerald began writing a comprehensive guided journal that helps one to track and monitor not only food choices, but emotional, physical, and spiritual aspects of their lives; hence she says "will help others realize the Spirit - Mind - Body connection." The Spirit of a Winner Guided Journal is self-published and available at all Chicago-land Whole Foods Markets, online at http://www.spiritofawinner.com and by calling: 1-800-373-6076.
