Hello wonderful Permies peeps!

Although this might be sort of off-topic, I really would appreciate anyone and everyone's opinion about my newest book.

It is a healthy living, exercise diary, and soul searching journal for anyone who wants to get healthier, lose weight, and get in touch with their goals and purpose in life. I originally made it for myself as I'm trying to get in better shape after having twins. And I'm also feeling a deep desire to align my life goals with my everyday actions.

I've made a survey so that people can give their honest opinions and comments about it.

Please help me finish this book by giving me your wise opinions!

Rosemary's Survey Click Me Click Me!

Here is the cover mock-up (what do you think?)

What do you think of the title? Should it be more whimsical/enticing?

I would especially love r ranson's opinion and also Tracy's!! I really look up to both of you and the beautiful creations you've both done recently.

Is the design of the cover too plain, does it need more flowery-ness, prettiness, etc.? What would appeal to you?

If anyone wants, I can send you a 20 page sample of the book so you can comment on the content...I would LOVE LOVE LOVE your advice! I only had 1 person respond to my plea via email out of my mailing list...so that made me a bit sad :-( But I know everyone is mighty busy, so no hard feelings. Go to my website to email me and I will send you the sample super fast! www.rosemarypureliving.com

And thank you in advance for your help! I love you all Permies friends!

Rosemary, Its always a good thing to be as kind and nice to one's body as is possible. I don't want to discourage you, but thought you might want an alternative point of view from those who have fought the 'fat' battle and been damaged in the process. Sadly so much of what passes for 'healthy' lifestyle suggestions turns out to be a back door to your wallet instead. Don't take my word for it, check out -


I sincerely hope you can save yourself, and others too, a LOT misdirected living and end up hating the vessel you live in many years on down the line. Unfortunately the E=MC2 of 'healthy' is food - exercise = weight. And I say that because it really  isn't a true formula - soooo many factors missing! (like the fact that dieting and orthorexia don't work)

Best wishes and a healthy HONORED body too.
Oh sure, it's a tiny ad, but under the right circumstances, it gets bigger.
