Ecks, we love the books by John Eldredge! My DH (and I actually) loved Wild at Heart, and I have Captivating but haven't read it yet. DH found it a very encouraging and liberating book in many ways.
I think so many people don't want to take responsibility for their health - much easier to blow you off than face up to some pretty major changes... VERY frustrating though! My SIL is hovering at the brink of trying primal but can't quite get off the ground and I don't know how to encourage her without pressuring. Just told her to holler if I can help at all. Her hubby has just had a double knee replacement so their lives are chaotic at the moment. If I could just lose more weight and keep improving my quality of life I think it would be inspiring for her - more motivation for me to get my butt in gear properly now that Christmas is over!
